We were originally told that the reason Sarah Palin wouldn’t be attending the Republican National Convention was because “Alaska was too far away”. Now we know the truth…her son Track Palin is back in jail on domestic violence charges. He has been remanded back to jail for the domestic violence charges he was arrested for back in January.
Little Green Footballs blogger Charles Johnson on Thursday directed his Twitter followers to the website of Alaska’s judicial system, which shows that Track Palin has been “remanded into custody” on the three charges that resulted from his drunken attack on his girlfriend in January.

Track Palin is apparently being tried in “veterans court” which is a diversion program for veterans who meet certain requirements. This means that his sentence will most likely be rehab or a treatment center of some sort.
His mom Sarah had previously blamed his arrest on PTSD related to his time serving as an army reservist in Iraq in 2008.
She said, “My son like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country. And that starts from the top. It’s a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder, if they have to question, if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question though that comes from our own president where they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?”
However according to reports regarding Track’s discharge papers, he never saw any active combat during his time overseas.
