And who did the vandalizing? Anti-war protesters. From WXYZ.com in Detroit:
Congressman Mike Rogers’ home is under police guard after his Lansing office was severely vandalized last night.
The case is being handled by the FBI and the US Capitol Police, who have requested that the Lansing Police investigate the matter.
According to the Congressman’s spokesperson, the office was extensively damaged.
Two security cameras were destroyed and the building was spray painted.
The tapes from the cameras are being reviewed to see if they recorded anything before they were destroyed.
The vandals also spread red paint all over the 8th congressional district sign in front of the building, as well as on a sign that says “We Support Our Troops.”
They also put a sign on one of the buildings windows that says Congressman Rogers has “blood on his hands.”
His spokesman issued a statement. Here’s a portion:
“The aggressive destruction of federal property and vandalism was a callous attempt to intimidate Congressman Rogers and his staff.”
“We all are entitled to our own opinion on the situation in Iraq but we are not entitled to destruction of taxpayer property and intimidation of federal officials. With an office in Lansing, regular office hours throughout the district, rapid response to constituent concerns and a 24-hour online office, Congressman Rogers prides himself on his constituent service and ensuring all voices are heard. Despite this vicious attack last night, the office continues to serve constituents today and we encourage folks to continue calling the Congressman for assistance, appointments and other information they may need.”
The anti-war crowd has said that they don’t like war in Iraq because violence creates more violence. Interesting, isn’t it, that the resulting violence has been from the anti-war protesters themselves.
