This comes in response to the story about public drinking and fighting at Juniper Park that we linked to last weekend:
In case you don't have 8 minutes to waste watching this dreck: they go on and on about how the story drawing attention to their lawlessness takes up more of the page than a story about a servicemember killed overseas.
Then they call the reporter a "streeted out street fag," one of them says "your dumb ass should be put in Afghanistan and my cousin would be more than happy to f*cking snipe you," and "Let me catch you in the street."
It's great that these goons actually taped their aggravated harassment. It's going to make the NYPD's job that much easier... Mike Reka and Billy Bottles will soon be finding out that a letter to the editor would have been a better choice. These two definitely seem like the type who wore "Thanks, John" baseball caps in the 1980s.
My favorite part was the recitation of the poem about how the soldier is the one who fights for our freedoms but then claiming his cousin in the army would shoot the reporter for exercising freedom of the press.
Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. - Samuel Johnson
