Another member of the “culture of personal responsibility” who thought he was exempt from consequences. I’ll bet this thug cried like a baby when he found out he was charged.
I can’t watch that video again, wow it triggers me, Bully is the lowest of scum. F’ that guy!
Uh oh. I wonder how aware he is that his conduct out of uniform is still subject to the UCMJ and he can face penalties in both criminal and military court? Dumbass.
Oh, he’s aware now. Big Time…
I feel like i don’t need to watch the video. The thumbnail is enough for me but what a piece of shit
He sure is!
Yeah, but thank god for the video and the surveillance state. In the breezy GOP-Kodachrome days, there would have been a much worse assault or fatality, and it would have been justified as a reaction to the outrageous pedestrian who “whistled” at the soldier’s wife.
“What are you doing here?” “You’re in the wrong neighborhood, motherfucker.” “Where’s your house? What’s your address?”
Land of the free indeed.
there’s quite a difference between the state having the cameras and the people having cameras.
where does it say even that happened? the guy was out for a walk, and pentland decided he didn’t want a black man walking in “his” neighborhood
Oh I doubt he cried. Whined, probably. Whined like someone who is so entitled to their entitlement that they don’t even know it’s there.
Maybe dropped the gendered slur?
Yeah, I wasn’t wild about it but “baby” had been used and I really struggled to come up with phrasing that says what I mean. Thanks for forcing me to greater creativity. I’m not sure the new version is better, but it’s probably less offensive.
He’s not saying that’s what happened; he’s saying that in an earlier era with no phones/recording equipment, that would have been the proferred excuse for a beating or worse.
It happened to Emmett Till in 1955.
I hope he is discharged and loses his vet benefits.
It’s the soldier’s wife filming though, which makes the whole thing extra insane. They are so convinced they are in the right to harass a black man that they filmed it and posted it on the Internet.
Kudos to the man for saintly patience, also. That takes incredible courage in the face of unbelievable dickery and racism like this.
