I really don't...you just seem to be implying I said things I never did to try and unsuccessfully make your point and defend this guy's behaviorI'm sure you don't.what? I really have no clue what you are talking about nowUh-huh...... sure.well yes., obvously i was speaking about the officer at least have reasonable articulable suspicion.Not if that person has done nothing wrong. They can't arrest or even detain unless there is evidence of criminal activity, so no..... they have no legal authority to go hands on until then.The police have legal authority to put their hands on someone, when they are arresting them or detaining them....and individual citizen does not. They don't have police powers and a normal citizen doesn't.And that's the problem right there.Geebus, you don't learn.....Oh the race card when you don't like facts. Here let me spell it out to you.Actually it does------the crazy black guy is certainly a threat----------soldier did as males were intended and made it clear to the perceived threat that he had no business in the area and should leave the areas other people alone.oh please...just because someone has a mental health disorder doesn't give you a right to assault themSpoken like a man who has never worked with crazy people.well i am not going to give you my address...but will give it to LEO when you drop them off. I won't be assaulting any that are walking down the shirt and possing no threat to me or anyone around meCan I have your address?Well he's charged already...and the video certainly supports a conviction of simple assault.So you are not even going to ask what, just go straight to punishing people?Sure something could have...or the white dude and his wife could have just been asshats...and who knows what caused that.Something caused this.... I'd like to know what.I don't disagree....if anything...the video is certainly not good for the white guy and his wife...they come across as a bunch of punks...and frankly hurts the rep of the US Military...hopefully whatever branch he's a member of takes some action...I don't know, I'd like to know what caused the initial confrontation.He walked in the direction the guy told him to go, she happened to be standing there videoing himNo, he moved right at her..... in what universe is that okay, and something a man is not supposed to prevent?And answer the question.Did you not see that part?I've dealt with a lot of situations like this, and I've known lots of NCOs and Drill Sergeants..... there was more going on here prior to what was shown on the video.it’s his fault people can’t handle someone walking down a the street?He comes across as being very passive aggressive; he knew his presence was agitating the people and just for spite, refused to walk away.I have no idea why. I asked that question earlier in this thread. I am sure there might be more. But the video doesn't look good for the white guy. The smaller guy, certainly comes across much more calm. I can't think of any reason that would justifiy the assault...not from the videoOut of control yes...but why?...just because?....we are not being told the whole story at least not yet....Have you thought that maybe it's not race, but the guy is just an out of control, asshat?Have you ever been in the military bitch?....And of course the media is leaving pertinent info out of their report....something is fishy here...a US soldier does not see skin color...they shower with all colors and live with men of color...there has got to be a reason for this guy to go off and we are not hearing it....as usual....
That is the stupidest shit I have ever heard, you don't have a clue so just keep your mouth shut.
Most violence comes with instructions; if a big guy tells you to walk away or else, you need to accept that you are ignoring an opportunity to avoid violence if you refuse to do so.
Make your choice and own it; don't try to weasel out of your own responsibility and only blame the other guy.
sorry the guy being violent s the person at fault.
And he didn't touch him until the guy began walking towards the woman he said was his wife. Pretty reasonable reaction, under the circumstances.
Reasonable? Did you see something no one else did? You do know that a sidewalk runs two directions.
Do you let strange men physically close the distance with your wife during a dispute, yes or no?
Where was she standing? On the fucking sidewalk or right next to it!
Read your own post!
You said, "Do you let strange men physically close the distance with your wife during a dispute, yes or no?"
What the fuck did you expect the guy to do, sprout wings and fly away?
Why are you trying to pretend that didn't happen?
There is literally no defense of this asshat's actions...at least none on video.
Drills tend to be pretty good at keeping their composure, so whatever happened, it must have been pretty fucked up.
The video appears to simply show that
That's pretty fucked up too, IMO.
If the victim did have a mental disability....that simply just makes the punishment worse in my mind.
I got a fuckton of psyche patients I want to bus to your house. It will clear out my ER and you can deal with them for a change.
How was he a threat? Simply because he was black? Yu are a racist bastard, you know it?
1) Guy obviously has mental issues along with other issues
2) Secondly, he is a stranger in the neighborhood with no purpose in the area but is what standing around harassing. Do you understand what Stranger DANGER is?
3) He is a serial harasser---cops had been called on him 2 other times doing the same weird shit. Weird as in not NORMAL--something is certainly not right with the situation.
4) He is going after women and children--------------WARNING WARNING WARNING WILL ROBINSON
5) He a grown male is picking up other peoples KIDS..........since when do strange men get a right to start picking up random children? What type of moron doesn't understand there is danger?.
You'd have to be really really stupid to not realize that this freak guy is not a threat to ones family and neighbors or to not realize that he is up to no good.
The Soldier didn't hurt this freak btw---he simply try swatting him away without really hurting him........
Did the asshole doing the harassment know all of this beforehand? If so, why didn't he just call the cops?
Your racist excuses do not fly. STFU and go find a black person to pick on. That will make your day and hopefully get your ass whipped.
A clear sign of insanity is to do something over and over again and expecting a different result...
I just posted that the cops were called on him atleast 2 times before and yet was back for a third time.
The soldier did as he was trained and as nature intended----he tried running off the threat to the kids and women.
That is not his fucking job, bitch! I asked if he knew all of this before the fact. If he did, he should have called the police.
You don't so much disagree or disapprove of this guy being dealt with, (you think the cops aren't going to put hands on him, if they're called?) as you do of some individual taking some initiative and personal responsibility and doing it himself.
You are one of those guys (can't say "men") who hates and fears personal responsibility......... that's what your problem is.
Weak man, really weak......... work on that. Get yourself unfucked and do better.
One is assault and battery, the other isn't.
Now are you willing to admit there may have been some evidence of wrongdoing that we don't see on the video? Something that caused the confrontation in the first place?
Because if so, maybe the guy did have a good reason for being concerned then.
Or are you going to stick with your fantasy of white guys running out into the street to attack black people for daring to walk down it?
BTW, you need to read up on Sir Robert Peel sometime, maybe educate yourself on who and what the police are actually supposed to be.
I have no suggesting or said there might be something beyond the video to make the soldier so upset...but that still doesn't give him a right to assault the kid.
I never suggest the guy attacked him simply because he was black
