    Final presidential debate

    Iraq War Vets Left Bloody at the Debates

     

    I am a photojournalist that was covering the debate in Hofstra.  It was one of the most dreadful and deplorable experiences I have ever been apart of.  The authorities not only harassed and bullied people in the midst of a nonviolent protest, they also injured and arrested our war vets.  It was a sad day in America.  While we fight to figure out who will be the best leader to get us out of these immense set of problems that our country is forced to grapple with, armed thugs are bludgeoning our war vets for exercising their constitutional right to protest.
