Vietnam Vet Arrested After Allegedly Making Hand Gun Gestures, Wearing Threatening Shirt to Town Meeting

Vietnam vet Greg Kachka had the chance to turn himself in but refused to do so because he did not believe he had done anything wrong, police said.

Kachka said he went to the village board meeting to ask questions regarding how the board spends taxpayers’ money. He told MyFOXChicago.com that when he didn’t get any answers he decided to stay.

“This is America,” Kachka told MyFOXChicago.com. “I didn’t fight for this country to be treated like this.”

Two of the board members said they felt threatened by Kachka, who was wearing a T-shirt picturing a Marine Corps sniper that read “Don’t Move. If You Run, You’ll Only Die Tired.”

Trustee Debbie Herrmann and Village Clerk Christy Kaczmarek filed a complaint, saying Kachka began pointing at them with his index finger and thumb positioned as though his hand were a gun, the Daily Herald reported.

Kachka claims he pointed at Herrmann after she made faces at him, but did not mean the gesture in a threatening way.

“I look up and there’s Debbie Herrmann making all kinds of goofy faces at me,” Kachka told MyFOXChicago.com. “I didn’t do anything intentional. I talk with my hands a lot.”

Kachka is scheduled for court in June.

 

No humor, not to mention the assault on free speech. Okay, if they want to say they’re offended by it, sure, but to feel threatened? By a t-shirt? I’m sorry, I’m too busy laughing to comment further.   :lol:
