I guess it’s just to much to ask for a little respect for laying your life on the line for your country for the cowards that did this.
A billboard in Memphis with the phrase “I’m gay and I protected your freedom” with a saluting Marine alongside it, was trashed last week. It was one of five purchased by the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC). (OnTopMag):
Will Batts, executive director of MGLCC, said the crime surprised him because it occurred on a heavily trafficked street just blocks from downtown Memphis and a police station.
“Although it’s in an iffy lot, it’s a fairly well trafficked street and being so close to the main police station downtown – a block and a half – it doesn’t seem that this could have happened quickly. To completely tear down the billboard – it wasn’t defaced, it wasn’t shredded, it’s just gone. And for that to happen on such a busy street is actually shocking to me,” Batts told On Top Magazine on Sunday.
As of yet there are no suspects, and MGLCC has asked for an investigation.
