Armed Park Rangers Hold Seniors Hostage
(Western Journalism) Stories of citizen mistreatment have abounded during the
first week of the federal government shutdown. From World War II veterans being
threatened with arrest for visiting the memorial dedicated to their service to a
man being fined $100 for taking a jog at Valley Forge National Historical Park,
it has become obvious that this administration intends to make this
congressional stalemate as difficult as possible for the average citizen.
One of the most unconscionable incidents of shutdown enforcement involved a group of senior citizens on a tour of the nation’s landmarks. The group pulled into Yellowstone National Guard just before the shutdown took effect and, according to one tourist, the vacation quickly devolved into a confusing, frightening experience.
“It was like they brought out the armed forces,” said Pat Vaillancort, explaining the group was locked inside a hotel for several hours under the authority of park rangers with firearms.
