Officer Accused of Damaging Pro-Bush Cars
Associated Press | December 17, 2005

DENVER - The Air Force Reserve is discharging a lieutenant colonel accused of causing thousands of dollars in damage by defacing cars bearing pro-Bush bumper stickers, his lawyer and military officials confirmed Friday.

Lt. Col. Alexis Fecteau, a pilot with 500 combat hours in the first Persian Gulf War and the Balkans, was charged earlier by Denver prosecutors with felony criminal mischief.

He is accused of using paint stripper and grease to write a profanity about President Bush in 18-inch-high letters on cars at Denver International Airport that had bumper stickers supporting Bush and conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

Jim Miller, a spokesman for the Air Force Reserve Command at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., said the command plans to begin the process of giving Fecteau an administrative discharge. He said Fecteau does not face any military punishment.

Fecteau is charged with 13 counts of criminal mischief, five of them felonies because the damage to five vehicles was estimated at more than $500 each.

Police said the vehicles were damaged between January and July 2005 and that a "bait car" rigged with a video camera recorded Fecteau damaging a vehicle at the airport.

Fecteau's lawyer, Patrick Mulligan, gave a hint of what his defense might be, noting that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder could appear years after extremely stressful experiences, like flying in combat.

"There are millions of Americans who object to the war ... most of those millions of Americans didn't have, in addition, some of the combat experiences that Lt. Col. Fecteau and others had," he said.

Larry Whittemore of Pueblo, who said his Ford Expedition suffered nearly $2,500 damage, welcomed the news that Fecteau faces discharge, saying: "I don't think he is fit to be in the Air Force."

Now I must qualify my response by writing this; the finest individuals I have ever had the pleasure of holding discourse with either are, or at one time were, in US military service and I believe they represent the vast majority of the US armed forces. That being said, the few people I have met that made the worst impression of the human race in my memory are also involved in the US armed forces. These select few were supremely arrogant, excessively subborn, and uncommonly stupid. I have not found such a-holes anywhere in civilian life. I think the military infusion of confidence dispensed into a crappy individual breeds a new species of feces. I hope fortune eludes our perpetrator in civilian life.

I say we ship him off to Iraq, put him up in an A10 Wharthog, slap some "GW" bumper stickers on a bunch of insurgent's cars, then turn him loose.



Should work . . .

Wow.

This is like deja vu all over again.

I could have sworn I saw this last week in the HoH forum.

That's a good point. He's not going to make 0-6, that's for sure.

He should make O-1 just before he is discharged.

Care to provide a link to such a post? I don't recall ever reading that.

There are quite a few things I would LIKE to do to people I see with Kerry stickers, but common decency keep me from doing that. That, plus the knowledge that I am a much better person than they are.

Ain't ever seen that either. I ain't ever seen anti-Kerry graffitti, but ton of Anti-Bush stuff.

There are still Kerry stickers plastered on stop signs around here.

There was a bunch of anti-Bush crap spraypainted all over the National park this summer.

It seems to me that the anti-Kerry folks show a bit more restraint by any measure.

How about instead we ship him to Iraq, slap some GW stickers on him, then dump him out of a C-130 over some terrorist rathole?

Well, I hope he spends "retirement" counting the money he AIN'T gonna get now. Maybe he can marry C. Shehag and commiserate together. I'd bet a paycheck he was a total ass while in. Oh, and I'll bet he isn't so big without an aircraft. I'd doubt if any airline would take someone with such unstable behavior. I hear sanitation engineer is a good career.

You may have read about people WANTING to do that but unlike Liberals, most here have better restraint.

It is truly sad that a soldier got to the point where he felt the need to do this.
