    In 2003 creep Sean Yetman wore the uniform of a cop who died in the line of duty.

    Saw this video earlier this week. Its really disgusting that people impersonate soldiers to get some sort of personal ego trip or some sort of deal. I'm glad that he got called out for his disgusting acts and I hope that if he did indeed break a law be persecuted for it. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    I think you mean prosecuted, not persecuted, although since the Stolen Valor law was overturned, persecution may be the only recourse these folks have.

    I like the idea of everybody knowing exactly who Sean Yetman is and of his facing social anathema wherever he goes.

    I didn't realize it was overturned. Who would possibly do that, and why?

    Really easy to talk smack about things you have absolutely no idea about.

    True enough. Maybe he's just missed the updated posts on this thread. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that he seems not to be willing to give those who served.

    We shouldn't venerate all soldiers. Some people use the military to get through college, and they get nice cushy jobs in the military -- no self-sacrifice required. I don't really view those people with the same level of esteem as someone who fought in a war zone and saw their friends die. But they seem to receive a sort of carte blanche kind of pride, regardless of what they did.

    People shouldn't impersonate someone in the military, anymore than they should impersonate a cop or someone in government. On the other hand, I don't think upper class people who get high ranks in the military and basically do nothing should get my respect either.

    Yep -- this happens on occasion. There's a pic online of a "Marine" at the airport who's getting the knife hand treatment by a Marine.

    I know someone who also confronted a phony Marine at an airport. I'm non-violent, but I thought he showed real restraint in simply grabbing him up and warning him rather than giving him the beat-down he deserved just on GP.
