    Default Shameful

    An Oklahoma man suspected in a brutal home invasion -- already facing a murder charge for allegedly killing an elderly woman -- could face additional charges after the death last week of her husband, a D-Day veteran.
    Bob Strait, a 90-year-old Tulsa resident, died on Friday, and a medical examiner is determining his cause of death, News On 6 reports.
    He was injured March 13 when, police say, Tyrone Woodfork, 20, entered the house and attacked, allegedly beating and sexually assaulted Strait's 85-year-old wife, Nancy Strait, who died two days later. The couple had been married for 65 years.
    Woodfork was arrested a day after the incident when he was spotted driving around in Strait’s vehicle, a Tulsa Police Department spokesman told
    Woodfork was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on March 15 and is being held on charges of first degree murder, first degree burglary, armed robbery and assault with a dangerous weapon.
    Bob Strait was a World War II paratrooper who took part in the D-Day invasion as part of the 101st Airborne Division, where he was awarded a Bronze Star, News On 6 reports.

    Now, unlike "Treyvon Martin," I doubt many of you know the name Bob Strait. I doubt most of you even knew about this story. You see, the media is too obsessed with Romney being a bully when he was in grade school, to bother with something like this. After all, World War II was a long time ago, and the sacrifices those men made, have been long forgotten by many in our country. This man won a bronze star for valor, one of the highest honors given by our military, for his contribution in one of the most significant invasions in world history. He was a hero, plain and simple. Beaten nearly to death, forced to watch his wife of 65 years, get raped and beaten to death, by a piece of human scum, only to die in the hospital days later from his injuries.

    The day after Strait's death, you might expect our Congress to pass some kind of resolution honoring this great man and his service, and I suppose they still could, but the most pressing of issues for our Congress, was not to honor this hero, but rather, this...

    House liberals want the government to cut funding for state and local police programs in places that have “Stand Your Ground” laws like the Florida statute at the center of the Trayvon Martin shooting case.

    Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, will offer an amendment to a Justice Department spending bill as early as Tuesday evening that would slash 20 percent of Byrne Grant funding for states with such laws on the books.

    ================================================== ======================================

    You see.... Congress is too busy trying to combat "stand your ground" laws... the kind which might have prevented a WWII hero and his wife from being brutally beaten to death. Isn't it ironically shameful?
