The plaque honoring William Mahoney was removed, along with several flags, from the Connetquot Youth Association, overnight July 4, according to Mike Barbara, a vp of the organization.

Second, make them clean every bathroom of every military base in the country. Finally, clean the houses of every family that lost someone during the 9/11 attacks (regardless where they live). Of course, they have to pay for their own cleaning supplies and travel. If they don't have the money, let the worthless parents who let them do this kind of crap pay for it.

Scott Rupert Scott Rupert Sunday, July 28, 2013 7:38:23 AM It just goes to show what our country is in for in the future when these kind of idiot are going tobe in charge of our country. In our own little town we have PLENTY of young men and women that could be on or own VFD or First Responder team, but they choose to play video games I guess instead. That's the kind of young people you are seeing here on the video. My question is If how did the cameras follow them, was someone running them or do they follow the motion? And if someone was running them, why weren't they caught?
