Veterans Administration Police Forcibly Subdue Vietnam-era Veteran

Judicial Watch has released videos related to its lawsuit against Veterans Affairs police officers and VA officials concerning violations of the constitutional rights of Robert L. Rosebrock, a 75-year old Vietnam era veteran, who for the past decade has protested misuse of a 388-acre parcel of prime West Los Angeles real estate set aside to serve veterans (Robert L. Rosebrock v Michael Perez et al. (No. 2:17-cv-04354)).

The videos show Veterans Affairs police officers forcibly subduing a Vietnam era veteran, who was an occasional participant in Rosebrock’s rallies. They were photographing and peacefully protesting the misuse of a Los Angeles veterans’ facility that the VA has allowed to be used for a variety of non-veteran related purposes, including a baseball stadium for the UCLA baseball team, athletic fields for a private preparatory school, and a dog park.

In one video, a VA officer states to another of the protesters that the reason for tackling the veteran was because they asked for an ID and, though shown the ID, it was not handed over to the officer.

The lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch seeks damages and asks the court to prevent further violations of Rosebrock’s constitutional rights. It also asks the court to declare invalid a law VA officials have used to prohibit photography on the public sidewalk where Rosebrock holds his regular, Sunday-afternoon protests.

Rosebrock was handcuffed and forcefully placed into the back of a patrol car during the June 12, 2016 incident.  VA police confiscated Rosebrock’s cameras on both June 12, 2016 and June 19, 2016.

Last year, a Los Angeles federal magistrate ruled that Rosebrock could not be criminally prosecuted for taking photographs at the “Great Lawn Gate” entrance to the Los Angeles National Veterans Park. The court also separately ruled that Rosebrock was not guilty of violating federal law by allegedly displaying two four-by-six inch American Flags above a VA fence on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016.

  • Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  • Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really loved browsing your weblog posts.

    After all I will be subscribing to your feed and I’m hoping you write again very soon!

  • Howdy are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do
    you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • (iii) You are accountable for the work, so keep a professional attitude when confronted
    with your customers. The goal is usually to find a method to give a complete response, all while focusing on as small a region of investigation as possible.
    Remember that should you be new at college you’ll only recover in the event you practice, so work tirelessly on every single assignment as
    you may be giving you better academic writing skills with each one.

  • That’s why they see no issue in staying unproductive or even with stealing from you.
    They offer features like Two Wash Courses (Gentle & Normal Wash,
    twin water inlets, spin shower, two wash courses (Gentle
    and Normal wash), and wheels for easy mobility
    in some models. Today, I and Bianca have become best friends again.

  • So should you be expecting plenty of help, remember that this isn’t always forthcoming.
    It is common for teachers to lament that students are not able to write despite having done quite nicely inside PMR English exam for 15-year-olds.

    Remember that in case you are new at college you’ll only progress in case you practice, so work tirelessly on each
    assignment as you will end up improving your academic writing skills with each one.

  • (iii) You account for the work, so maintain a professional attitude when confronted with your customers.
    This will give you sufficient time and employ to brainstorm and
    make certain what you really are writing about is relevant and what you would like to show in. Reading and writing wherever possible is definitely the best approach to develop a writing

  • If this is the case then results may be skewed or writer might
    be can not draw any sensible conclusions.
    The goal is to find a method to provide a complete response, all while
    focusing on as small a place of investigation as possible.
    If you say because continuously, the one thing the various
    readers will probably be mindful of is because – it’ll stifle your argument in fact it is towards the top of their list of issues you should
    avoid within your academic work.

  • Thank you for some other great article. The place else
    could anybody get that type of information in such a perfect approach of writing?

    I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such info.

  • Yes, even though everything that listing down, you will still must sit
    and compose an entire response, exactly the same way you’ll
    write any essay. The goal is always to find a method to
    supply a complete response, all while focusing on as small a
    location of investigation as possible. Run-on sentences occur
    because of lack of punctuation and happen if you become lost with your essay.

  • Excellent post however , I was wondering if
    you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit
    more. Appreciate it!

  • I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I’m not certain whether or
    not this put up is written through him as no one else recognise such special approximately my problem.

    Whey doing tribal style tattoos, firstly you should bind shark
    teeth and animal bones as well as sticks, after which dip them in ink.

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the

    something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post

    problem fixed soon. Thanks

    a perfect means of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the search for such

  • Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get
    irked while people consider worries that they just do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top and defined out the whole thing without having side
    effect , people could take a signal. Will
    probably be back to get more. Thanks

  • Super wpis, generalnie to ma sens, jednak w niektórych aspektach
    bym się kłóciła. Z pewnością sam blog zasługuje na szacunek.
    Jestem pewna, że tu jeszcze wpadnę.

    Thank you!

    Any suggestions? Cheers!
