Leftist Intolerance: anti-military Chicago lawyer Jay R. Grodner keyes up Marines car, please help!

Please help this Marine defeat that intolerant anti-military scum!

From BlackFive:

“Marine Sgt Mike McNulty is on activation orders to Iraq (second tour).  On December 1st, 2007, Mike went to visit a friend in Chicago before deploying to say goodbye.  In order to get to his friend’s residence, and keep in mind that Chicago is a myriad of diagonal and one-way streets, the front entrance (right way) to the one-way street was blocked.  Mike, being a Marine, overcame and adapted by driving around the block to the other end of the street and backing up all the way to his friend’s place.

While saying goodbye, at about 11am, he noticed a man leaning up against his car. Mike left his friend’s apartment and caught the man keying his car on multiple sides. After caught in the process, the man told Mike, “you think you can do whatever you want with Department of Defense license plates and tags”.  (In Illinois you can purchase veteran, Marine, or medal plates.  Mike has Illinois Marine Corps license plates.)  During the exchange, he made additional anti-military comments.

Mike called the Chicago police and had the man arrested. A citation against the man was issued for misdemeanor criminal damage to private property.

The police report (and I have copies if needed) states:

Victim related to P/O that as he walked back to his vehicle, he observed the offender leaning up against his vehicle and rubbed/dragged his left arm and hand across the passenger side.  As offender walked away from victim’s vehicle, victim observed a scratch along the rear trunk and passenger’s door area where offender dragged his arm and hand over.  Victim and witness stopped offender and confronted him.  Victim has military plates and decals on his vehicle and offender made anti war and military comments to victim.  Upon P/O’s arrival to scene, offender denied scratch victim’s vehicle, but did admit to rubbing past it.  Victim at this time did not sign complaint, because he is leaving tour for military duty.  Offender said they accused him of scratching the car because he is Jewish.  Offender’s statements/responses to P/O’s questions unreasonable.

As it turns out, the man is Chicago lawyer Jay R. Grodner, who owns a law firm in the city and has offices in the suburbs.

After sending the car to the body shop, it was determined there is $2400 in damage, making this a felony. Mike went to court Friday morning to collect the damages against Mr. Grodner and file felony charges. Though the damages are over $300 (the amount which determines felony or misdemeanor) Grodner offered Mike to pay his deductible, $100, and have Mike’s insurance pay for it.

The Illinois States Attorneys tried to coerce Mike into accepting the offer. Appalled, Mike said he wanted this to be a felony. The state told Mike that it was not worth pursuing felony damage against Grodner because they don’t have the time. In addition, the state prosecutors told him that he would never it ‘would be difficult to recover the damages’ from Grodner because he is a lawyer.

Instead, the State asked Mike if he would accept probation for Grodner. Mike accepted, probation was offered to Grodner, and Grodner declined the offer, saying within ear shot of Mike, “I’m not going to make it easy on this kid”. Mike’s next court date is tomorrow, Monday, December 31st, to pursue misdemeanor charges against Grodner.

Mike’s leave is over on January 2nd when he reports to Camp Pendleton before heading to Iraq.

Jay Grodner knows this and is going to file for a continuance until Mike is gone and cannot appear in court.”

What would YOU choose: waterboarding for a day or ten years in prison?

The “waterboarding is torture” argument is silly. I think any guy who is sane would rather be waterboarded for a day rather than spend a decade in prison. Hell, I would choose to be waterboarded for TWO days rather than taking a shower with twenty 250-pound convicts even once.

So, does that mean that prison sentences are MORE of a torture that waterboarding?

No, of course not.

So what is torture? Hammer to the toes and fingers, powerdrill to the kneecaps and the skull, screwdriver to gauge out the eyes – just a few of things, which I think, legitimately are torture. They all share same characteristic — permanent and horrific damage to the human body. NOT discomfort – PERMANENT DAMAGE!

I guess, to some people any discomfort experienced by anybody while in custody must be torture. Well, those people are very idealistic, to the point of being crudely ignorant.

Liberal = Anti-semite ??? Blogger sued over criticism of open anti-semitism???

Quote (directly from Wonkette):

“In a stunning rocket, Rudy Jew-liani basically admitted that he doesn’t know anything at all about foreign policy — or maybe that he knows too much. In an interview with the Jew York Times, Rudy inavertendly revealed that the US has been fighting an entire extra war these last few years that only he knows about.”

WHERE IS OUTRAGE OF PEOPLE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES “LIBERAL” OVER THIS?

UPDATE:

An Israeli blogger was a man enough to voice his disagreement with openly anti-Semitic comment quoted above. Now he is being threatened with lawsuit. h/t LGF

What about First Amendment? What about the right to criticize whomever you want to criticize?

Regardless of your political position, you have to agree — this is DESPICABLE!

If you agree with my outrage over the comment and over the threat of a lawsuit, PLEASE WRITE SOMETHING ONLINE CRITICIZING THESE ANTISEMITES! The more people will be against them, the less inclined they will be to sue. They can’t sue whole damn Internet!
