Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Mayor Eric Papenfuse says he is trying to arrange an apology from a police officer to a 75-year-old veteran the cop publicly accused of being a fraud on Memorial Day. Robert Ford had served as bugler for a Marine Corps League detachment during a wreath-laying ceremony and was wearing his uniform. An observer pointed him out to the officer, saying Ford's hat was wrinkled so he must be a fraud. The officer and the observer began following Ford around shouting "He's not a real Marine" and "Stolen valor." Ford served in the Marines from 1958 to 1964.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
