Background:  — Los Angeles Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Vandalized —

The criminal is arrested. The bail amounts to $95 000.

The Vietnam War Memorial was vandalized by the 24-year-old A.C. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was taken into custody in the Exposition Park area on suspicion of felony vandalism. The subject is known by the moniker “Liter”.

A.C admitted to participating in the vandalism during an initial interview with lead Det. Michael Thibodeaux, who later obtained a warrant to arrest him, authorities said.

Three more taggers are suspected with the crime. According to the investigators, they are known as “Pheb,” “Noner” and “Snake.” The moniker “Noner” has been linked to a Bay Area tagging group.

Longtime Venice resident Stewart Oscars said the graffiti stretched on for about 100 feet. “It’s like a direct attack,” he said. “If you have any sense of history, you’d never do this.”

    1. Yes, journalism at its best. If LA Sheriff’s made the arrest, why is the photo of an Aspen PD vehicle? Exposition Park is along way from Colorado….

    2. The point is the tagged was arrested. As a long time English and Reading teacher, I’d say some of you ‘critics’ have a long way to go before you qualify to edit and correct someone else. Let’s stick to the point instead of getting lost in nitpicking the language!

  1. I feel he needs to be punished to the fullest extent . That’s awfull for people to do that with no respect for our service people serving our country . I want to thank all service people for fighting for us and our country while we still have freedom of speech . God bless ya”ll .Darlene D.

    1. People who disrespect the people who gave all for our country deserve to be put on a island in the middle of the ocean together, with no help from anyone but themselves. That goes for anyone who doesn’t appreciate the privilege of living in the USA, citizen or not. Obviously they have no regard for anyone but themselves!

  2. Why no release of its name, but only ID’d as “A.C.”? Is it because it is a Mexican?

    1. “It?”… The taggers are MOFO, but still human. His race doesn’t matter. It’s the crime against something as sacred at a Memorial to the Vietnam Vets, The Dead that breaks the law and pisses me off. I’m a Vietnam Era Vet and it pisses me off Big Time, but let’s not worry about the bastards race. There’s more than one of them too, you know. I hope they all go to jail, and yeah, if it turns out they aren’t Americans, they should be deported the day after they complete jail time.

      1. I couldn’t agree with you more, this has nothing to do with race, it’s a fricking crime and a disgrace, race doesn’t matter here… he’s a fucking punk regardless, jus say’n…

    2. If (it) is an illegal who crossed our southern boarder don’t count on the Liberal/socialist in California to send him back to Mexico or keep him in Jail . California the land of Liberal/socialist idiots ! Time to end Sanctuary Cities !

      1. Hello, this episode you’re describing is one of my favorites. After hearing the deeply sad news of Isaiah Sheffer’s passing, I have been thinking about his wonderful reading of “The Knnkciog”, and just tried to find a podcast of it without luck. Any ideas? I also emailed . Thank you! I really appreciated your comment on the FB page too. All my best to you. – Erin

    3. Political correctness keep them from naming the terds? Who gives a shit or needs/wants to know their street names are! Hope there’s no black blood involved with this trash or we’ll have riots and obumma will intervene.

      1. The youth of tomorrow (today) will wear personal jammers and distorting face shields when they loiter. Which will be illegal, but so will loitering so who gives a carp?More books than 1984 wrote about this. And even the ones that we&#ern39;t dystopian seem soulless and bland. You'll end up with 90% of the population being tame, and Harlequins out of the rest of them. Look at Japan, the press of people on every side removes any expectation of privacy and from teh outside at least that's what you end up with.

    4. What does it matter? Will it add more fuel to your hatred of Mexicans? He’s an asshole, no matter what race he ends up being!

      1. Dank, David, für die schöne Rose Geplapper. Ich vernäht die Rosen in GeiGeb-wlnde und färbte sie mit gelber Kreide. Sie sehen aus wie echt.

  3. I hope after all of the offenders are caught they are sentenced to 5 yrs without any chance of lessening the sentence for good behavior and to serve six months to one year in a prison. Then made to join the military, preferably the US Marines for four years nothing less, and to complete basic training. Then to serve as an aid to a disabled Veteran or to work as an orderly in a Veteran’s home or hospital. Maybe then they will realize what their disrespectful actions created with all of society!

      1. “You are so hot that scientists are trying to get government funding to find out if you are the cause of global warming. All we know for sure is that when polar bears think of you, they die. But they die ha8p1.&#p22y;-Scott Adams

    1. I really like your recommendations. It would serve to make the offenders see and experience what our veterans have been through.

    2. Yes, make them join the US Marines. They will be in the perfect hands to get their just due.

    3. Yes that seems fair. Little shits. No respect.
      The Marines would knock the shit out of them.

    4. He could not pass for a marine… He should go in the Army, then after boot camp head straight for P.O.W. training…. He would not be the same after that….. Then he should pay for his crime…..

    5. Asshats like that don’t deserve to join the military, they should have just chopped off their hands like they do in some foreign countries and be done with it, if it seems harsh keep it to yourself, they disrespected my fellow brothers in arms and they deserve the harshest possible sentence.

  4. I would have liked to have been able to read this and other things on your page but with the ads covering it up it’s impossible. Thank you, and I hope they catch them all.

  5. Treat the fucker with extreme prejudice and hang him without delay no matter where you are in the world society dont deserve the burden of sick people hurry up make the ultimate example of them weather it be short and quick or the rest of there lives in prison what they did is ni worse then shitting on a grave

  6. I hope their parents and family are proud of them. Not…
    This is why we legislate EVERYTHING! These dumb, selfish f*cks value only themselves. I really hate people sometimes.

  7. They should be made to clean up the mess they created and leave the wall as bright as can be. They should not be put in prison as that will only exacerbate their bitterness or whatever their agenda is. They should be sent to a military training and drafted in the military so that they may see hat the veterans have to go through to save the likes of their asses. They’re idle and there is no parental guidance so they need discipline. Then they should be made to compensate for the damage they have incurred.

  8. Judgment should include:

    Clean their mess.
    500 hours of community service with Vietnam Vets

  9. ID LIKE TO BE LOCKED UP WITH THIS TAGGER BITCH……WANNA BET HE DROPS THE SOAP in the shower .THEY WILL HAVE TO P.C. HIM WHILE IN CUSTODY AND HE WILL HAVE TO P.C. HIMSELF WHEN HE GETS OUT……IF HE Does GET OUT………..F…..K HIM. ………HIS MOTHER AND FATHER MUST BE SO. PROUD?…. PROddiedUDLY WRITEN BY EDWARD J.TOLOSKO IIVET

  10. Forget jail. Why would we waste our $ on that kind of trash. They should pay for damages and clean up. And, THEY should have to clean it wearing orange. They deserve to be publicly shamed for such an ignorant disgrace to our country’s history. You’re grown ass adults who tag?! Really? Get a life.

  11. If this is in Los Angeles, why does the officers car and arm patch say Aspen Police… as in Aspen Colorado?

  12. My money is that they are not giving his name because he is an illegal Mexican.he’ll probably get off scott free.If it was up to me I’d put a bullet in his head.

  13. Say hello to the Vets at County you little Bitch boys – they got something for your COWARD asses!

  14. Remember the boy that got caned for spray painting a wall overseas, well, give them ten lashes each with a cane.

  15. The taggers should not only get jail time but prison time. This is disrespect to those who died for our country and also to the families who lost loved ones who died for our country. They need to be taught a lesson!!! Sure hope they don’t just get a slap on the wrist for this!!!!

  16. i am glad t hat they caught this hoodlum. First thing t hey should do is take his green card, if he has one, then ship his butt to Iraq or Afganhistan, with a 100 pound pac, him and his homies. Have him stand watch all night soaking wet and cold, eating MRE’s. Then if he is a good point, sent him out on patrol and act as point.

  17. Despicable, cowardly and pathetic. After they clean it up and serve prison time, they should serve about 53,000, hours of community service at a VA hospital or home. Most will know where I came up with the 53,000 hours from.

    1. As much as I agree with most recommendations here, there is no draft anymore, caning, cutting of digits ,hands,etc is considered cruel and unusual. The Marine Corps doesn’t have hospital orderlies or attendants, that’s a Navy job. Capitol punishment is not allowed in CA. So… how about cleaning the Memorisl and every other piece of graffiti in LA. Use his artistic talent to do common painting of any disabled vet, , senior citizen home and put together a presentation of why tagging is bad and what can happen if caught and make him present it at every school in AlA county.

  18. Sentence should be to serve one seas in a war zone. Maybe then they’d have respect for those names on that wall.

  19. They should be made to write a letter of apology and hand deliver it to every name on the wall

  20. I think the ONLY WAY to teach these kids what these hero’s gave up for all of us is this. Instead of going to prison or being fined they should be enrolled in the USMC for atleast a period of 2 years. This actually might help them become good citizen and to understand what they have done and where they were headed in life. No judge should allow families or lawyers or civil liberties to be able to be involved. Or they should go to prison for no less than 5 years with no early release. We know what kind of citizen will come out. How else do we teach them?

  21. I think he needs to be put in a 10 by 10 cell with some of the hardest core vets that came back from Vietnam! Maybe then, if he lived through it, he might have a little more respect!

  22. I think he needs to be put in a small room with about 10-12 of the hardest core vets that came back from Vietnam, then if he lived through it he might be a little more respectful!!

  23. Good to know these cowardly scum were identified. Justice? Give my one long weekend with them in my jungle cellar. They’ll learn the meaning of respect. RVN 65 – 67′

  24. Hasn’t been tried or convicted. Where is the justice? Can somebody write an honest headline please?

  25. Don’t send them to the pen, sentence them to serve five years working in a Veterans hospital. Working without pay. Physical therapy would be a good area. They could see first hand what our veterans and military men and women give and sacrificed for their freedom. Jail at county or state level will not teach them anything but more meanness and hate.æ¿

  26. Give all of them 20 thousand hours of community service and make them visit every war memorial in the county or the state and clean it using their own cleaning equipment paid for by them. Have them write a 10 thousand word essay on why such behavior is disrespectful and a 5 page letter of apology to all the veterans in the country, Especially those that have served in the Vietnam Conflict. Also place them on supervised probation for life.

  27. Castrate the bastard and then sentence him to helping the wounded warriors for at least one year.

  28. Put him in a cell with some vets. This is the time to bring back burning at the stake.

    1. TOTALLY AGREE. THOSE PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK.PERHAPS SOMEONE SHOULD EDUCATE THEM ON HISTORY AND PERHAPS SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN IN THAT WAR SHOULD HAVE A TALK WITH THEM.NEVER KNOW MAYBE THEY’LL CARE AND COMPREHEND WHAT THEY DID WAS DISHONOR HERO’S. ONE CAN ONLY HOPE.

  29. Defacing a War Veterans Memorial ! What an asshole ! I hope you get what you deserve ! What ever it is , it should be the Maximum ! GOOD LUCK JERK ! And buy the way I am a Veteran !

  30. Put these a-holes in prison and treat them like the North Vietnamese treated U.S. soldiers until the next big war. When the next big war starts air drop them in the middle of enemy territory with weapons loaded with blanks.

    1. GIve the barstead a ferkln good right handed fist . THe slimey barstead
      From a VEteran Royal Marine
      PER MARE PER TERRAM and SEMPER FI

  31. For those calling for him to be put in the military, stop and think. He cannot abide by the laws on the civilian side and putting on a uniform will not make him more law abiding. It might get a good man killed because this idiot cannot follow rules. 5 years of keeping this area cleaned daily and a 40 year ban of him owning any sort of paint. The military gets enough jug heads without accepting those already identified.

  32. Perhaps we could ship them to a third world country where they can continue their very valuable art work and see what happens in other countries when you disrespect those who gave their lives so these punks could be complete assholes! Pretty sure some of those 3rd world countries won’t be as forgiving! Either way…win-win for us!

  33. Before they serve their time, they should be required to lend their “bomb” “artistic” “skills” to restore every inch of that mural.

  34. there should be “no” turmoil—-“just shoot them” THESE ARE cARTERS freedomites AND THEY SHIOOULD HAVE BEEN SHOT BACK THEN—THEY WANT TO KEEP UP WITH THEIR NASTY DEEDS AND ITS JUST TIME TO “SHOOT THEM” WHY SPEND TAXPAYER MONEY DOING IT THE OTHER WAY—THEY ARENT WORTH IT

  35. To begin, they need to be rounded and made to clean that memorial in front of a group of veterans.
    And after that…….

  36. Who wrote this thing? There are way too many inconsistencies for me to believe that it was a seasoned or even a novice journalist. Horrible grammar, poor references, and what about that picture? Aspen Police? WTF??

  37. Superb read, I just passed this onto a corseumate who was doing a small research on that. And he actually purchased me lunch because I found it for him. So allow me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
