Confederate Veterans are United States Veterans under the eyes of U.S. Law

Georgia Power Plant Wansley is GUILTY OF CRIMINAL TRESPASSING, THEFT OF PRIVATE PROPERTY, VANDALISM, GRAVE DESECRATION, and most importantly of all – SPITTING ON THE GRAVES OF AND DISHONORING AMERICAN VETERANS.

SHAME on them!
With the moving Viet Nam Wall coming to Coweta County to HONOR our Veterans, Georgia Power Plant Wansley is urinating on our Veterans.
SHAME!!!

Confederate Veterans ARE United States Veterans under the eyes of US LAW:

U.S. Public Law 85-425: Sec. 410 Approved 23 May 1958

(US Statutes at Large Volume 72, Part 1, Page 133-134)

The Administrator shall pay to each person who served in the military or naval forces of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War a monthly pension in the same amounts and subject to the same conditions as would have been applicable to such person under the laws in effect on December 31, 1957, if his service in such forces had been service in the military or naval forces of the United States

U.S. Code Title 38 – Veterans’ Benefits, Part II – General Benefits, Chapter 15 – Pension for Non-Service-Connected Disability or Death or for Service, Subchapter I – General, § 1501. Definitions: (3) The term “Civil War veteran” includes a person who served in the military or naval forces of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, and the term “active military or naval service” includes active service in those forces

Confederate Flags ARE protected under Georgia Law:

Any person or entity who suffers injury or damages as a result of a violation of this paragraph may bring an action individually or in a representative capacity against the person or persons committing such violations to seek injunctive relief and to recover general and exemplary damages sustained as a result of such person or persons unlawful actions.

50-3-9. It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to mutilate, deface, defile, or abuse contemptuously the flag of the United States, the flag, coat of arms, or emblem of the State of Georgia, or the flag or emblem of the Confederate States of America by any act whatever.

50-3-10. Nothing in this article shall be construed to prevent the use of the flag of the United States or any flag, standard, color, shield, ensign, or other insignia of the State of Georgia or of the Confederate States of America for decorative or patriotic purposes, either inside or outside of any residence, store, place of business, public building, or school building.

50-3-11. Any person, firm, or corporation who violates any provision of Code Section 50-3-8 or 50-3-9 shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

Confederate Veteran Graves ARE protected under Georgia Law:

GEORGIA CODE O.C.G.A. 16-7-26 (2010)
16-7-26. Vandalism to a place of worship

(a) A person commits the offense of vandalism to a place of worship when he maliciously defaces or desecrates a church, synagogue, or other place of public religious worship.

(b) A person convicted of the offense of vandalism to a place of worship shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than five years.

O.C.G.A. 16-8-2 (2010)
16-8-2. Theft by taking

A person commits the offense of theft by taking when he unlawfully takes or, being in lawful possession thereof, unlawfully appropriates any property of another with the intention of depriving him of the property, regardless of the manner in which the property is taken or appropriated.

O.C.G.A. 16-7-21 (2010)
16-7-21. Criminal trespass

(3) (e) A person commits the offense of criminal trespass when he or she intentionally defaces, mutilates, or defiles any grave marker, monument, or memorial to one or more deceased persons who served in the military service of this state, the United States of America or any of the states thereof, or the Confederate States of America or any of the states thereof, or a monument, plaque, marker, or memorial which is dedicated to, honors, or recounts the military service of any past or present military personnel of this state, the United States of America or any of the states thereof, or the Confederate States of America or any of the states thereof if such grave marker, monument, memorial, plaque, or marker is privately owned or located on land which is privately owned.

I call upon Heard County Sheriff to become involved, to investigate these crimes, to charge the guilty, and to prosecute them as the HATE CRIMES they are.

I call upon Georgia Power to WRITE UP then FIRE everyone involved in the GRAVE ROBBING SCHEME, to make known publicly all names of this illicit cadre of thieves and anti-American Veterans, to pay restitution to the Webbs for the STOLEN FLAGS, and to set up a webcam so that anyone can click on and monitor the gravesite, as Georgia Power Plant Wansley security CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

SHAME ON GEORGIA POWER!!!

Thanks and God Bless

    Georgia Power is a subsiduary of The Southern Company and is responsible for its actions to its parent Company.A group of Racist employees at Plant Wansley cannot be allowed to disobey the law of the land and violate the grave sites of the fallen Southern dead…….. Calmer heads at the Corporate office will surely prevail and allow decendants of Confederate hero’s to place wreaths and flags at their ancestors grave sites…. It is the Law………….. It matters not who owns the Land…… It is the final resting place of Confederate Soldiers that must be always Honored just as the final resting place of the Northern Solders………. Greg Land

  2. After reading all comments, I want to do whatever it takes to support this cause and ensure this wrong is corrected. Can someone send me information on joining the SCV?

    NOTE: If I mail in my power bill on a check with the Confederate Flag on it, will they cash that check or throw it away?

  3. I applaude you Mr. Bearden for your concerns and strong words on this matter. You are absolutly right! It is a disgrace to the brave men and women who fought for our freedoms. To most americans the rebel flag represents southern pride, not slavery or racism. As for the actions taken by those who disgraced the markers, there are other ways to express you feelings without intruding upon anothers rights. Why dont you sign up, walk a mile in the shoes of those that you dishonored, then perhaps you will develop some new insight as to the value of these markers?

  4. What can I do to support the cause. ?

  5. Must get video. Must identify each one & prosecute
