Iraq Veteran: 'This Is What You Get For Serving Your Country!'

Via Think Progress:

After most demonstrators at today’s march on K Street moved on, a small group of protesters decided to encamp at the intersection of 14th Street and K Street and hold their ground in an act of civil disobedience. Police moved in, using horses for crowd control. As the police dragged one protester away, he identified himself as an Iraq veteran, saying, “This is what you get for serving your country!” and went on to say he was in Iraq.
