The United States’ treatment of the brave men and women who protect it in both the armed forces and law enforcement agencies remains deplorable. Following this year’s Veterans Affairs scandal and the left-wing media’s trouncing of police officers using a perfectly reasonable amount of illegal force in order to keep our streets safe from hooligan adolescents and purveyors of illegal cigarettes, the latest barely-proverbial smack in the face to the men and women who risk their lives so that we can keep ours may hit even closer to home than any other to date. TMZ reports:

“A Florida judge has ruled [that Scott Stapp’s] soon-to-be ex-wife Jaclyn will have sole legal and physical custody of their 3 kids [Jagger, 16, Milan, 7, and Daniel, 4]. There’s no indication from the ruling that Scott even gets visitation.

“The judge also ruled Scott has no right to stay in the family home — it’s exclusively for Jaclyn and the kids.”

Stapp, of course, was an undercover CIA operative who posed for years as the frontman of the Christian nu-metal band Creed, until his vindictive bitch wife recently blew his cover. Having apparently learned nothing from the treatment of Valerie Plame, both the government and the mass media are now colluding to make Stapp’s life a living hell. And yet, our typically apathetic modern society will do nothing to aid Stapp and put an end to this outrage. Today, I am ashamed and sickened to call myself an American.

The only words of comfort I can think to offer Stapp are these: history corrects all errors, disgraceful though they may be. Just as honor was eventually restored to Plame, so shall it be for Stapp. They even made a big Hollywood movie about Plame, Fair Game; the recent Sony hack reveals that Stapp may win a similar victory, as Kevin James is apparently circling a project based on the assassin/singer’s life, Rock Star Spy Dad. We can only hope this testament to Stapp’s sacrifice makes it way to the silver screen sooner rather than later, and that Stapp is finally perceived by the public the way he ought to be — as a true American hero.
