"Police eventually arrived to break up the commotion. Reed, (the old veteran in the tan tshirt), told KARE that he was charged with disorderly conduct and destruction of property.

The Winona City Council is now contemplating banning all recreational activity from Veterans Memorial Park, according to KARE. Pokemon isn’t the only reason, as people have complained about people blasting loud music in the park as well. A proposed ordinance would ban sports, athletics, picnics, games, erecting tents or hammocks except for memorial purposes, sunbathing, or playing music without authorization. The council is scheduled to vote on it Monday evening."

By just watching this video, it's hard to choose a side. It doesn't appear that these kids are doing anything wrong by any means, but this veteran is obviously very upset for some reason that we probably missed.

But after hearing more about this story, it's easier to pick a side. First off, this is a public park (it's not a cemetery or anything- being "like gravestones", doesn't make them gravestones)- there are basketball courts, a baseball field, and a playground right there in the same park. Do you know how many "memorial parks" there are? They are designed for people to enjoy, not sit from afar and grieve and mourn- it's not a cemetery. It's a PARK!

These kids had a canopy and some chairs there (where people routinely picnic and run around with their children, with no objection). Apparently, the old man didn't know what Pokemon Go was (I'm almost 50 and I know what the hell it is), decided he didn't like it anyways, and snapped into a territorial rage. Here are his own words:

"I deal with PTSD, and I guess kind of the light went off in my head, I kind of snapped, I think. Let my emotions carry me. And this is what’s happened."

So, it seems like it was all a big blow up over nothing. But there are possible plans now to shut down all recreational activities because of this incident, and earlier reports of "loud music blasting" over there... from the park's friggin' outdoor AMPHITHEATER! I'll bet a lot of those fallen vets would be mortified by this guy's violent display and attempts to squash the rights of others. Thanks for your service, buddy, greatly appreciated, but yeah, I'm gonna say f*ck that guy based on his video performance. Even the police, who you'd assume would automatically take the side of the vets and not the "punk" kids, decided he was in the wrong.

As a veteran I'll say that veteran's feel the need to pick a fight for the smallest of reasons. That old asshole wasn't suffering from ptsd, he's just an old cranky asshole that doesn't have anything better to do.
