Veteran

A combat veteran served his country and wanted to buy a home and retire in Oklahoma, but his neighbor has a different plan.

Danny Shedd is being sued by his neighbor for living in the house that he just bought. Does that sound weird? It should.

Danny Shedd found a dream home in Big Cabin, Oklahoma after serving his country for 12 years and fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Shedd family moved in and started settling down until the neighbors claimed that the house belonged to them and not the people who sold it. The outrageous claim could be true due to a “clerical error”, and now Danny Shedd has to fight for his slice of the American dream in court.

Here is what happened.

The house was sold legally to the Shedds, who did all the mandatory inspections and the house was sold and approved by the local government. The Shedd’s paid $172,425 in cash to buy the house.

After moving in, Danny called a surveyor to outline his property in order to build a fence. The surveyor came back and said that the Shedd’s had purchased 10 acres of woods, and not the house. Not even adjacent to the property. The house was actually built on their neighbor’s property.

To make things worse, their names were not on the deed to the house.

How is that possible? The property had been built, foreclosed and even re-sold and nobody figured out the problem? The claim is that it was just a “clerical error”.

Now the neighbors are suing to get the Shedds out of the house, but they have nowhere to go. The land they bought is worth a lot less than they paid, but it also isn’t suitable to build a home on.

With an issue of this magnitude, you would think that local government could fix this quickly, but it hasn’t been fixed.

Here is Danny Shedd’s YouTube plea for help because he isn’t getting it in Big Shed Oklahoma.

In a hotel where police and emergency services often occupy most of the rooms, a 81-year-old Marine Corps Veteran was held hostage by Perry Coniglio for four years.

Coniglio who is 43, and the victim had adjoining hotel rooms at the U.S. Academy Motel in Highlands, New York.

Coniglio was physically abusive and used intimidation to force the veteran against his will to live in the hotel room while all three of his benefits checks were stolen each month.

Not only was the man held hostage he didn’t get to use his benefits checks that he most certainly earned.

Coniglio often beat the veteran and then turned around to use the benefits on drugs.

The police have charged Coniglio with grand larceny and unlawful imprisonment.

The elderly victim was taken to the hospital for evaluations and currently Coniglio is being held on $15,000 bail.

How long should Coniglio go to prison if found guilty?

Editor’s Update:

On May 28, Liberty News Now published an article based on a story written by Gabriella Morrongiello that appeared on Campus Reform – a web-based college news site – about the suspension of Jeremy Rawls, a Marine combat veteran who is a Mississippi College student.

 

In the report Liberty News Now relied on for its story, Campus Reform stated that Mr. Rawls was suspended from Mississippi College specifically because of his request to switch counselors.

In a written release by Mississippi College, the college stated emphatically that:

“This statement is not true.” “While Mississippi College cannot specify the details related to Mr. Rawls temporary suspension, we want to firmly deny these accusations. In addition, the suspension did not occur because he is a Marine combat veteran.

Following the initial interim suspension, Mr. Rawls was allowed to continue his coursework. Mississippi College officials were able to meet with Rawls late last week to discuss his return to his student worker position.

Mississippi College President Lee Royce said in the statement that MC is recognized as one of the most-veteran friendly institutions of higher learning in the country and that:

“MC would never intentionally place a student in a situation creating the sort of discomfort Rawls experienced”

“MC is committed to honoring our U.S. Armed Forces student veterans, current service members, veteran dependents and survivors with veteran-focused educational and student support services.” “MC enthusiastically welcomes the men and women who have served our country.”

Liberty News Now regrets any confusion arising out of its initial report.

As published on May 28, 2015:

Jeremy Rawls, a Marine who went on two combat tours in Iraq, just got kicked out of Mississippi College—because he asked for a different therapist than the one he was assigned.

Rawls suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which afflicts many veterans due to the atrocities they saw in war. When he received a counselor through the university, he was paired with a female therapist who wore traditional Muslim dress. Rawls requested a different counselor.

“It’s not that I didn’t want to participate,” Rawls explained. “I didn’t want to traumatize her and it wasn’t a good environment to be talking about [my PTSD] with that specific person.”

Rawls alleges that his requests to change counselors were completely ignored by the university, until one day they sent him a letter telling him that he was suspended from school until they could conduct a mental evaluation. They also labeled him a threat to campus safety, which Rawls found especially insulting and “extremely offensive.”

After outcry, Mississippi College was forced to issue a formal statement backtracking Rawls’s suspension. They claim that his suspension was not because of his counselor switch request, but did not elaborate on why Rawls was suspended. Regardless, he’s now back on campus and free to take classes.

Rawls, however, is taking his recent notoriety as a platform to warn other veterans about the misconceptions the public has about PTSD—and how, if they’re not careful, they could get caught in the increasingly rigid liberal education bureaucracy.

“If they’ll do this to me, and I’m one of the most outspoken veterans on campus, they’ll definitely do this to others,” Rawls explained. “They asked me what I wanted and I told them I want to be a normal student.”
