As Twitchy reported yesterday, participants in the the Million Vets March breached and removed the barricades at the Lincoln Memorial. After yesterday’s march, the Spite House ordered the barricades at the Lincoln Memorial (as well as the WWII Memorial) put back into place.
However, it didn’t take long today for people to ignore the replaced barricades and return to the memorial today.
Tweeters on the scene are now reporting that Park Police are attempting to clear the area:
Paying all those officers to keep people away from a normally unmanned memorial because of the shutdown makes zero financial sense, but this isn’t about logic, but rather spite.
