Outrageous RPT: Bodies of 28 Vets Finally Moved From L.A. Morgue to Cemetery
There are new allegations of veterans being neglected even after they’ve passed away.
A source told CBS Los Angeles that there may have been as many as 60 bodies of veterans at the L.A. County Morgue for the past year and a half. Friday, 28 bodies were finally moved to the Riverside National Cemetery for burial.
Read more below from CBS Los Angeles:
The morgue says the bodies were unclaimed and they don’t know how long the veterans were there.
The law states veterans are supposed to receive a proper burial.
The Veterans Administration says they were never notified the bodies were processed and ready to be buried.
More than two dozen bodies were transported to the Riverside National Cemetery Friday afternoon and more could be moved as they are identified.
On Friday evening, KCAL9′s Stacey Butler reported the LA County Morgue and the Veteran’s Administration were blaming each other for the mistake.
Breitbart.com’s Kerry Picket was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the alarming report.
“The interesting thing here is that we’re seeing a circular firing squad among these agencies passing blame,” she said, noting that the morgue blamed the VA while the VA blamed the morgue.
Picket said that officials only did something about the bodies when the press drew attention to the situation, blasting the scenario as “pretty pathetic.”
