This post is about *crime. It's about a disgusting crime in Maryland involving Mark Beyers, 27, an Iraq war veteran who lost an arm and leg in a roadside bombing was mugged during a night out from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in the District, where he is undergoing rehabilitation. You see mike myers was roughed up and robbed by five men as they left a Bethesda, Md., restaurant July 22. It was the couple's first night away from the hospital in three weeks.

African-American Political Pundit says: This is the type of senseless crime that pissing me the hell off. I can only hope that Bush will invite this couple to the White House to express our nation's apology. The Maryland Governor should do the same.
