VETERAN ASSAULTED & BANNED BY VFW POST FOR QUESTIONING OFFICIAL 9/11 STORY

Kevin Smith & Aaron Dykes/ JonesReport.com | May 10, 2006

An American Patriot who served in combat was allegedly assaulted April 1, 2006 at VFW Post 445 for voicing comments.

Richard Schramm has been arrested and charged for assaulting Retired Photographer’s Mate 2nd Class Mark Duryee in Charleston, South Carolina. Duryee indicated that he required medical attention for his injuries.

Subsequently, Duryee has had his canteen privileges suspended and may be permanently barred from the locale for his role in the incident on April 1, 2006. This is ironic, since Duryee was allegedly assaulted by Schramm, who was then the post's Commander and is now its Quartermaster.

The very person who was charged for assaulting Mr. Duryee had him barred from the VFW post by calling together the house committee who suspended his privileges. Duryee has a right to frequent the VFW as a dues-paying veteran.

These circumstances are very dangerous for free speech. It is of the utmost importance that Mark Duryee has his access to VFW Post 445 reinstated. Otherwise, it is precedent that a citizen of the United States can be first assaulted for voicing his views and then punished for creating an 'incident,' in this case, caused only by Duryee's quiet free speech with a friend. This is outrageous discrimination.

Mr. Duryee contacted Jones Report and told us that he was discussing problems with the official 9/11 story and mentioned such films on the topic as 'Martial Law 9-11: The Rise of the Police State' and 'Loose Change.' Schramm and others at the VFW's canteen overheard him and told him to, "shut up or get out." When Duryee refused, Schramm allegedly attacked him from behind, then knocked Duryee to the floor where he was reportedly kicked and stomped.

Richard Schramm could not be reached for comment Tuesday or Wednesday. An attempt was also made to contact the arresting officer, who could not be reached for comment either.

The phone number for VFW Post 445 is (843) 795-9419. The Charleston County Courts website lists Mr. Shramm’s recent arrests, which include, since 2000, not only the charge of Assault & Battery from this incident, but also charges of D.U.I., Reckless Driving and Gambling/Unlawful Games.
