Pharma Co Has License Suspended as Vaccine Blamed For Sterilization of 500,000 Women & Children

vaccinevaccine

A state-sponsored forced sterilization on a massive scale has allegedly taken place in Africa according to opposition leaders and the public who are railing against the government. An industrial pharmaceutical laboratory has since had its license suspended by the Kenya Accreditation Service as a result of the controversy.

Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga—who swore himself in as president on Tuesday—claimed that at least 500,000 young girls and women may be infertile, following a tetanus vaccine administered by the government in 2014 and 2015.

The controversy began coming to a head in 2016 when Agriq-Quest Ltd, a Nairobi-based pharmaceutical company got in a dispute with Kenya’s Ministry of Health over their tetanus and polio vaccinations. A group of Catholic doctors originally made the accusations claiming that the vaccines may contain a hormone that is dangerous to young women and can cause potential sterilization.

As the Agence de Presse Africaine reported:

Odinga said girls and women aged between 14 and 49 from the fastest growing populations in the country will not have children, because of a state-sponsored sterilization exercise that was sold to the country as a tetanus vaccination.

The Catholic Church was ignored when it mounted a strong but lonely campaign against the mass tetanus vaccination, after it raised concerns about the safety of the vaccine that was being used, he said.

At the time, the Catholic Church in Kenya claimed that the tetanus vaccine used by the government of Kenya and UN agencies was contaminated with a hormone (hCG) that can cause miscarriages and render some women sterile.

“The Church’s position was informed by what had happened in Mexico, Nicaragua and Philippines, where the various governments together with WHO/UNICEF had conducted similar campaigns using tetanus toxoid impregnated with beta human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG) that causes permanent infertility among girls and women,” Odinga continued.

Odinga says they confirmed through analysis of samples that the vaccines used were tainted with the hormone.

“Today, we can confirm to the country that the Catholic Church was right. Hundreds of thousands of our girls and women, aged between 14 and 49, from the fastest growing populations in the country will not have children, because of the state-sponsored sterilization that was sold to the country as tetanus vaccination,” he declared.

After Agriq-Quest’s license was suspended, the company pointed the finger at the government. They claimed that the government’s decision to suspend their license was due to the fact that Agriq-Quest refused to doctor the tests for them.

According to Business Dailly Africa, when Agriq-Quest conducted the tests on the vaccines, they found the Catholic Church’s suspicions to be correct.

As BDA reported, “The company’s results from tests carried out on the vials showed that the samples of the vaccines were contaminated as had been claimed by the Catholic Church and Agriq-Quest claimed the government wanted the results altered to show that they were fit to be administered to women and children.”

According to Odinga, as reported by APA, the government, for some mysterious reason, was hell-bent on misleading the country, while intentionally sterilizing Kenyan girls and women.

“The vaccines were a great crime committed against women. Women should choose when to have children and how to space them,” he said.

It is important to point out that the belief that tetanus vaccinations sterilizing citizens has been a long time controversy in Kenya and has been disproven prior to these claims.

Also, after the discussion came to a head, in spite of claims of tests showing contamination, UNICEF and the World Health Organization later said that the vaccines were safe and procured from a pre-qualified manufacturer.

However, according to Odinga, they accessed the analysis from four highly-regarded institutions, such as Agriq Quest Ltd, the Nairobi Hospital Laboratories, the University of Nairobi and Lancet Kenya.

“These results all indicate that the Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine had high contents of beta human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (BhCG) that causes sterility in women.”

Toronto: Cops suspended after eating pot edibles from dispensary raid, hallucinate and get stuck in a tree

Cops marijuana police weed

    

Two police officers have been suspended after they called for back-up, and the responding officer discovered that they were hallucinating from marijuana edibles – which they reportedly confiscated while raiding a dispensary.

CP24 reported that the officers consumed marijuana edibles while on duty, and then “called for help after one of the officers ended up in a tree.” The female officer who responded to the call “slipped and sustained a serious head injury.”

In response to the incident, Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack refused to name the individuals, but said that there was an ongoing investigation and the suspects “could be charged or they could just be cleared through the investigation.”

“All I can tell you is that there is an ongoing investigation,” McCormack said. “I’m not aware of the specific allegations around the investigation and I’m not going to comment or speculate until the investigation is complete.”

The officers have been identified as Vito Dominelli and Jamie Young, and CTV News reported that they were “conducting plain-clothed surveillance” around 1 a.m. when they called for help. The officer who made the call claimed that he felt like he was going to pass out.

CTV also noted that Dominelli, who has “cultivated a considerable social media following by posting videos in uniform where he engages in light-hearted activities, like lip-synching to music,” has since set all of his accounts to private.

While McCormack would not say that Dominelli’s social media presence was connected to the investigation, he did say that he is concerned about officers giving the public the impression that they are not devoted to their jobs.

“I am always concerned when something belittles what we do in policing and doesn’t represent us in the right light,” McCormack said. “I don’t want the public to be under the misconception that we have a bunch of officers who have nothing to do but use social media.”

Both reports noted that while the department has not confirmed that the officers obtained the edibles while on the job, investigators are looking into whether they were seized during a recent dispensary raid.

Brian Patterson, president of the Ontario Safety League, told the Toronto Sun that he is not surprised by the incident, and he believes it serves as an example for why everyone should be cautious before they consume marijuana edibles.

“That’s what can happen when you digest this drug,” Patterson said. “I get a sense there is pressure to move these edibles on to the table quicker and I am saying I am not sure I ever want them on the table at all. We need to get a better handle on just what these edibles are and what the effects are on people who take them.”

As The Free Thought Project has reported, these officers are not the only ones who seem interested in trying marijuana edibles – and they don’t seem to have a problem using their badges to obtain the products. In June 2015, police officers in Santa Ana, California, were caught on surveillance cameras raiding a marijuana dispensary and stealing the merchandise.

The cameras captured the officers making profane jokes to one another while they played darts and testing out the merchandise in the store. In one part of the video, an officer can be seen taking a big bite out of what appears to be a marijuana edible, before he shakes his head in satisfaction and gives the other officers a “thumbs up.”

After entering the dispensary wearing riot gear, with guns drawn, the officers then began to make crude comments about the store’s owners and guests. They even suggested assaulting one of the occupants who was a partially blind paraplegic.

When a male officer asked, “Did you punch that one-legged old Benita?” a female officer responded, “I was about to kick her in her f-ing nub.”

CBS46 anchor Ben Swann suspended after he tries to revive Reality Check

Posted Friday, January 26, 2018 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

CBS46 evening anchor Ben Swann has been taken off the air after his efforts to revive his independent investigative operation he called Reality Check came to light today.

On Thursday night, Swann posted a video on Vimeo teasing about an upcoming new project he planned to announce next Tuesday. He only identified himself as an “investigative journalist” and did not reference his ties to CBS46.

The video by Friday morning had been seen more than 2,000 times. After CBS46 learned of the video, he was suspended and the video removed from Vimeo. (The video is still available on Twitter.)

Prior to arriving at CBS46 in 2015, Swann had built a national following, largely among alt-right conservative types, with his Truth in Media “Reality Check” stories that delved into issues, he said, the mainstream media ignored.

While at CBS46 from 2015 into early 2017, he continued to do those stories on his website, sometimes airing pieces for the station as well.

Swann a year ago did a six-minute story during the 11 p.m.CBS46 newscast as part of his “Reality Check” series about the debunked Pizzagate conspiracy theory wondering why there was no further investigation. He had done no independent reporting and the story had no connection to Atlanta. Media Matters and the Daily Beast soon went after him and he was taken off the air for a few days.

The Daily Beast reported at the time that his Truth in Media site was tied to a Republican PAC. Plus, he had previously done work for the Russian-government supported Russia Today before coming to Atlanta.

After the media backlash, Swann pulled his Truth in Media website down as well as most of his social media accounts. Through the rest of 2017, he largely stayed quiet beyond reporting local news with Sharon Reed in the evenings.

But according to stories on dashforcenews.comsteemit.com, and activistpost.com, Swann last month began posting on the forums of Dash, a new crypto-currency along the lines of Bitcoin pitching a way to revive his Reality Check operation. (The Dash logo appears in his video that was taken down today.) Through that arena, the stories say, he was able to raise enough crypto-money to fund future Reality Check news stories.

If the Daily Beast is against him, then he obviously is an advocate of truth.  Those morons are the most biased group outside of MSNBC.  I find it comical that they reportedly out’ed him as an Atlanta Anchor that is clearly Conservative in a world that is obviously a majority of Liberal anchors.  Have they ever “out’ed” a Liberal anchor?  I don’t think so.

No telling whether or not Ben Swann’s contract is up for renewal… and no telling if 46 may be mulling over whether or not to cut ties with him, assuming his contract doesn’t get renewed. I’m sure CBS 46 could scoop up a male anchor to pair up with Sharon Reed from a soon-to-be former Tribune station that may not wish to work for Sinclair. Lately, it would seem like 46 has been getting better, but very slowly, with talents from competing stations (like Paul Ossmann, Fred Kalil, Gurvir Dhindsa, Sally Sears , Keith Whitney, Karyn Greer, and the late Amanda Davis) being hired, new 9PM newscast on Peachtree TV being genius, and 11Alive/11Dead slowly becoming a shell of its former self.

One Bad Apple? Half of An Entire Police Dept Suspended—Including the Chief

suspendedsuspended

LLANO, TX – All too often those who continuously apologize for crimes committed by police officers are able to justify some of the most egregious instances of outright murder by claiming the officer was a bad apple. Almost as often, however, as TFTP has shown numerous times, the bad apple theory is exactly that—a theory—with no evidence to support it.

Four people in the Llano Police Department, including Police Chief Kevin Ratliff, are now on paid suspension, Llano County District Attorney Sonny McAfee told KXAN.

There are eight law enforcement officers employed by the Llano Police Department, according to the LPD’s website, meaning that half of the police force is now under suspension.

Does that seem like “one bad apple,” or a potentially much greater problem?

Four police officers are under investigation by the Llano County District Attorney’s Office, including the police chief—who suspended himself—in connection to the arrest of a man, and his subsequent complaint, according to KVUE.

The DA’s Office said that Chief Kevin Ratliff suspended himself with pay upon becoming aware of the investigation and that he will remain on suspension pending the outcome of the investigation. Must be nice to be able to give yourself a paid vacation just after potentially committing a crime while on the job—a luxury afforded only to police officers.

According to the news report by KVUE:

Sgt. Jared Latta and Officer Aimee Shannon have been on paid suspension since Friday. Officer Grant Harden, who is also under investigation, in this case, has been suspended since December and was indicted for tampering with evidence and official oppression. However, officials could not confirm if Harden’s indictment is related to the citizen’s arrest cited in the investigation.

The DA’s office said that the Texas Rangers are assisting with conducting the investigation.

The Llano County Sheriff’s Office will provide assistance to the city while half the police force is on suspension, as LCSO has a mutual assistance agreement to back them up on calls when necessary.

Those that forward the idea that the problem is simply a few bad apples, allow the systemic problems in law enforcement to continue without being addressed.

While the suspension of half a police force may come as a surprise to some, it’s no surprise to The Free Thought Project, as we’ve reported on numerous similar incidents.

For example, in March 2015, the Brooklyn Police Department came under investigation amid allegations that weapons, drugs and other items had been removed from the evidence room. Then in March 2016, the head of a drug task force in Pennsylvania was arrested for having sex with a minor in exchange for leniency.

More recently, this past July, the entire drug unit of the Troy, New York, Police Department was suspended following reports that the unit entered a home without a warrant – then tried to cover their tracks by filing false burglary reports.

According to the Times Union, the officers entered a home after they were tipped off by another Capital Region police agency. But then they lied about it.

After realizing they made a major mistake, officers compounded their problems by attempting to cover their tracks. They allegedly filed a false burglary report.

After the police chief became aware of the incident, and the attempted cover-up, the entire drug unit was placed on administrative leave.

The common thread in these disparate cases is that there is no “one bad apple,” but a systemic problem of police attempting to cover for the illicit behavior of other officers – something known as the “thin blue line.”

Essentially, the thin blue line operates as a good ole boys network with a mantra that a good cop looks out for a fellow officer first—regardless of how illegal the activity is, or whether in it violates an individual’s rights. To be accepted by the law enforcement “brotherhood” you look out for fellow cops first. Those that refuse to bend to this expectation are run out of law enforcement by their peers, as we’ve reported on numerous times.

While it’s extremely rare for officers to be held accountable for their illicit actions, the actions of the DA’s office in Llano should be an example to the rest of the country that law enforcement isn’t above the law.

Disturbing Video Shows Cop Beating Handcuffed Man for No Reason—Cop Suspended

handcuffedhandcuffed

Titusville, FL – An unnamed police officer is on paid vacation after he was caught on video punching a nonviolent man in the face during an arrest. In a cellphone video recently posted online, the officer can be seen punching 20-year-old Amari Nicholas Hair while he was already handcuffed.

“Upon seeing the video, members of command staff at the police department immediately removed the Detective from his duties and placed him on leave so that a due process investigation can be completed on the use of force during the arrest. We want to assure our community that we are committed to a thorough investigation in this incident and will be completely transparent on our findings,” a spokesperson from the Titusville Police Department said.

The officer punched him at least twice in the head while he was handcuffed, leaving him with a bloodied nose after allegedly finding drugs on him during a traffic stop.

According to the police report, an officer got out of his patrol car earlier and spotted Hair climbing over the center console into the passenger seat of a Toyota.

The confrontation began when officers approached Hair, who was standing outside of the vehicle, during a traffic stop. The officer ‘quickly grabbed a hold of Amari and placed him under arrest,’ according to a police report.

According to police, at that point, the officer attempted to search Hair but Hair pulled away. However, it only looked like Hair was squirming due to the invasive nature of the cop groping him in search of some arbitrary substance deemed illegal by the state.

Police said the detective then ‘escorted’ Hair to the pavement, placing his weight on Hair. After a few moments, Hair could be heard screaming, “Oh my God…my (expletive) face is bleeding…Do not touch me!”

In the video, Hair can be heard saying “You punched me in my face.” To which the officer replies, “Yes, I did.”

Police then attempted to justify their excessive force by claiming Hair—who was handcuffed and compliant—was reaching for his waistband. Exactly why Hair was allegedly “reaching for his waistband” remains a mystery as no weapons were found.

According to Space Coast Daily, Hair was charged with Possession of Heroin, Possession of Hydromorphone, Resisting an Officer and Driving With a Suspended License. He was booked into Brevard County Jail Wednesday night and was released at 10:10 a.m. Thursday morning.

However, Hair’s family believes that he is being targetted and harassed by the officers who pulled him over. Hair’s father, Alonzo Hair, says that his son has had multiple run-ins with the arresting officer in the past year alone.

“They’ve got it in for my son. He could be walking down the street, and they’ll stop him. They are a threat to the community. At least we were able to get it on video this time, Alonzo Hair said.

As the Free Thought Project has previously reported, police officers across the country have been caught beating handcuffed suspects. Also, they have been captured on their own body cameras planting drugs on entirely innocent people.

Whether or not Hair had actual narcotics on him will be left for the courts to decide. However, this incident provides a perfect example of how the war on drugs is an utter and violent failure.

If Hair does have a heroin problem, handcuffing, beating, kidnapping and caging him will do nothing to solve it. It will also cost the taxpayers of Brevard County. Not only will the citizens have to pay to keep Hair in a cage but they will also be forced to pay for the brutality of these officers in the form of a lawsuit settlement that will inevitably follow this arrest.

Husband Shared Photo of His Wife Dying of Cancer So Facebook Suspended His Account

facebookfacebook
Elliott Lowe / Facebook

If ever you think Facebook is a haven for free speech and a place where people can freely share their peaceful information and thoughts, you need only browse through our archives to realize how much of a farce that is. Backing up this notion of arbitrary Facebook censorship is a recent post from Elliot Lowe about his now-deceased wife’s cancer and how it allegedly got his account suspended.

In this heart-wrenching post, Lowe described his late wife, Donna’s battle with cancer.

My wife (donna Lowe) was diagnosed with cervical cancer three days before Christmas, it wasn’t until the 10th of January 2017 after further tests and scans (PET Scan) that my wife’s consultant at Northampton General Hospital dealt us a further devastating blow that the cancer had already spread to her Lymph nodes in her pelvic area and as a result the cancer had been diagnosed as stage 4b.
Despite a very hard, but brutal fight against the cancer involving daily radiotherapy for six weeks and a chemotherapy session, a session which had to stop due to complications it was a diagnosis that was to claim her life.

He then went on to urge other women to make sure they undergo annual Cervical Screening which could’ve prevented his wife from dying had they found the cancer early enough.

I am sharing this with you today a year after her diagnosis to encourage everyone reading this to make sure that we take it upon ourselves to ensure that the special women in our lives in fact all women in our lives be they relatives or friends to attend their Cervical Screening (once called smears) and not to either miss them or forget to re-arrange.

 

My wonderful wife postponed her last Smear for reasons I can’t even remember, believe me I’ve tried to remember and there’s not a day goes by I wish I could swap places with her or wish I’d dragged her to the appointment and re-arranged it for her.

The post goes on to give some background information on the unfortunate and heartbreaking situation. At no time during the post did Lowe call for violence, advocate hate, or offend anyone in the least.

Because so many people identified with Lowe’s well-written post, it quickly went viral, sharing tens of thousands of times and getting tens of thousands of reactions. However, all that would come to a grinding halt when Lowe attempted to log into his account and was told that it was disabled.

“My Facebook account was suspended on Saturday morning due to what Facebook said was suspicious activity and as a security procedure,” Lowe told The Independent.

“I was requested to send another picture of myself to confirm my identity, which I did.

“Whilst my account was being reviewed no one was able to contact me or see my post.”

This practice of Facebook disabling accounts without giving a reason happens so frequently that there are dozens of blogs and forums devoted to it. This is nothing new.

Just last year, as TFTP reported, Facebook and its acquired service, Instagram, banned all mention of firearms, gun parts, or ammunition.

“Over the last two years, more and more people have been using Facebook to discover products and to buy and sell things to one another. We are continuing to develop, test, and launch new products to make this experience even better for people and are updating our regulated goods policies to reflect this evolution,” Monika Bickert, head of Facebook’s global policy management, said in a statement last year.

Facebook’s notorious censorship — which has included takedowns of iconic images like the Vietnam War’s ‘Napalm Girl’ to the arrest of Rosa Parks to a photograph of a classical statue of Venus — also attacks those who go against the mainstream narrative, even if their views are entirely peaceful.

The Facebook Page, God, a religious satire profile, had the nerve to write a post critical of spending priorities of the bellicose United States, stating:

“Dear Americans:

Stop making your military so damn huge and give people medicine and education because you’re sick and stupid.

Thanks,

God.”

Apparently, according to writer Dan Arel, Americans were none-too-happy with the critique — the post received such a massive, vitriolic response, algorithms automatically banned God for 30 days.

TFTP reached out to Facebook for comment, but they have—unsurprisingly—not yet responded.

Luckily, for Lowe, his account has since been reinstated and his well-written advice continues to reach thousands of people—for now.

WATCH: Pinellas County Deputies Suspended After Excessive Force Caught on Dash Cam


Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said Wednesday he has suspended two of his deputies for violating department procedures during a use of force arrest that was partially caught on dash cam video.

The video shows the deputies striking 25-year-old Jimarez Reed in May.

Sheriff Gualtieri said the use of force never looks good but that the deputies were justified in striking Reed, pulling his hair and hitting him with a handcuff.

The deputies had a good reason to believe Reed had a gun in his waistband and was refusing their lawful orders, the sheriff said.

Gualtieri did find problems with the incident, saying Deputy Alexander Edge should have never jumped on Reed from behind. It was a dangerous move that could have created crossfire, Gualtieri said.

Edge is being suspended for 15 days.

Deputy Jason Fineran is being suspended for five days for intentionally muting the audio on the dash cam video, the sheriff said.

“The reason why there’s no audio initially is because Deputy Fineran intentionally turned it off, which is a direct violation of Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office policy,” Gualtieri said. “Deputy Fineran testified for whatever the reason that he has a habit of turning off his microphone.”

Reed’s attorney, Michele Rayner said she is not pleased with the discipline issued. She released the dash cam video in October.

“Some things don’t add up for me,” Rayner said. “But I understand that he is doing his job and he’s protecting his deputies and also possibly trying to protect himself from a lawsuit and protect his department from a lawsuit. So I get what he’s doing.”

Gualtieri said Reed has plenty of blame for the incident and was even caught on a jail house phone call to his ex-girlfriend saying “he likes to bleed and he likes to fight.”

The sheriff said the incident began because Reed showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s home with a gun. Deputies did not find that gun on Reed but did find it and another one in his car.

Reed was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, resisting an officer with violence and obstruction.

WATCH: Cotton County Reserve Deputy Suspended After Being Charged With Three Crimes


WALTERS, OK – A Cotton County Reserve Sheriff’s Deputy is suspended after being charged with three crimes Thursday.

26-year-old Chase Berry is charged with disturbing the peace, obstructing an officer and breaking and entering, all misdemeanors.

Police said it all stems from a domestic incident Tuesday night on West Nebraska street in Walters. Court records say it started when someone called Berry and told him his ex-girlfriend and his daughter were seen at a store with another man. When Berry heard, police say he drove to his ex-girlfriend’s home, broke in and tried to leave with his young daughter.

The ex-girlfriend said when Berry showed up, she locked the door. She said Berry told her he was there looking for her new boyfriend and was threatening to hurt him. When she refused to let Berry into the home, she said he forced his way inside, grabbed their daughter and tried to leave. The woman called the police and as Berry was leaving, Walters police officer Brooke Stranahan arrived on the scene.

“She attempted to do an investigation to find out what was going on at the residence to make sure everyone was safe,” said Walters Police Department Public Information Officer Ben Lehew. “The individual she encountered would not stop and comply with her request. He continued telling her she had no business there, she had no jurisdiction there. As the conversation continued, he became aggressive with the officer and came at her. At that point in time, she repelled him, pushed him away and handcuffed him.”

After Berry was placed under arrest, his car was searched and police found a loaded handgun and a loaded shotgun. The investigation is still ongoing but Lehew said he is disappointed with the way this entire situation has unfolded.

Four Pinellas Sheriff’s Deputies Suspended After Neglecting Duties During Hurricane Irma


Four Pinellas County sheriff’s deputies were suspended after internal investigations found they neglected their duties during Hurricane Irma.

Deputies Jason Beetz, Kristen Spielmeyer and Brian Williams received 40 hours without pay with part of the punishments delayed if they stay out of trouble for the next year, according to the investigations. Beetz and Williams were also demoted to patrol deputies from their jobs as narcotics detectives, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. Cpl. Hal White was handed down 16 hours.

Gualtieri said they all accepted responsibility and apologized, but their mistakes still warranted punishment.

“First responders make a decision to enter a profession that really is an ultimate inconvenience,” he said. “When everyone else was stepping up, they stepped out.”

The employees could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Spielmeyer has worked for the agency since 1992, White and Williams since 2005, and Beetz since 2013.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds employees to have a plan for themselves and their families every year at the start of hurricane season, Gualtieri said. As Irma barreled toward Florida, supervisors communicated with their employees to make sure their responsibilities during the storm were clear.

Beetz, 32, was assigned to patrol evacuation areas then shelter at the Sheriff’s Administration Building, according to the investigation. He told his supervisors that, while he was aware of the consequences, he wouldn’t report for duty. Spielmeyer, 45, evacuated instead of reporting for duty at the jail. Williams, 35, showed up at the beginning of his shift to patrol evacuation areas but went home an hour later.

The investigative summaries don’t state why, but Gualtieri said they all had family members at home and didn’t make necessary arrangements ahead of time.

Officers Suspended Over Photo of Cops Pretending to Beat Up a Colleague at Arlington National Cemetery

The photo shows one officer on his knees in front of a squad car as he is held down by two colleagues, behind whom are three others simulating beating the kneeling officer with batons

Police officers have reportedly been suspended after a photo emerged of a group of cops pretending to beat a colleague at Arlington National Cemetery.

Officials at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall are said to be conducting an internal investigation into the picture, which showed the officers smiling and laughing.

It shows one officer on his knees in front of a squad car as he is held down by two colleagues, behind whom are three others simulating beating the kneeling officer with batons.

It is understood the photo, which was sent to Fox 5 by a whistleblower, involved officers who patrol Arlington

A Base spokesman told Fox at least two of the officers are on administrative duty while the investigation into the incident which occurred on Thanksgiving Day was investigated.

Graves of more than 400,000 US soldiers are located at the military cemetery, which has a mission statement of: ‘Honor. Remember. Explore.’

He added the officers were ‘horsing around’ and that the incident spiralled into ‘unprofessional behavior’.
As patrolling officers, they would have been responsible for responding to potential crime on the Arlington National Cemetery grounds.

Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall said it did not fall in line with their views, and cemetery officials have not yet commented on the photo.
