    Thank 'former guy' for this recent bout of racist attacks! That white jerk needs to go to prison for a while. Let him see what it is like to be 'imprisoned' against one's will!

    As we can see the "freedom" of the skinny, almost helpless victim, is non existent according to the "brave" trained Soldier that is easy double the size of the victim. Welcome to the U.S. the Land of the free and the home of the brave. What a satire if it wasn´t so sad! Pathetic!

    Thank God for the neighbor. Also the wife "hang out a little longer and we'll see how it goes" lol I guess white people automatically assume police are on their side

  • RoverOne

    Another day another news organization taking a video out of context and pushing a racial narrative. Wow general Sherman was right, the media really is the enemy of the people.


    Protecting Pedophiles is MSM priority .The Black guy was following a girl you Fools.

      What you don't understand, is this guy isn't gonna "retire". He's going to get his shit kicked in by his C.O and thrown into Leavenworth. His life is straight up over, and he's gonna face military jail time, even if he doesn't face civilian jail time.

    when the wife says "hang around just a little while longer, we'll see how it goes", after the cops were called, seems like she was insisting he gets shot. dude needs to check on his mental health, he doesn't seem fit to be training young men to be in the army.

    Not understanding where the race part came into play. Guy was most likely in the wrong we don't know what lead up to this but I'm not defending either. Just tired of people watching half a situation and then instantly putting there own spin on something then putting it on the news. Gets old after a while.

    "We don't know what led to the confrontation, but HERE'S A VIDEO THAT LOOKS BAD GUYS! GO RIOT AND GIVE US MORE HEADLINES!" That guy could well have been scouting and peering in windows or something. That's the point. We don't know.

    Who gives anyone the right to treat someone this way. This "soldier" is supposed to fight for our freedoms and rights to live free and happy. So much for that idea. His wife is not much better talking to the young man like that. Im sure the parents are sad to hear and see how they treat other human beings for walking by their house.

    Part Two It is of paramount importance to understand that the CIA/DoD habitually and deliberately insert elements into the Targeted Individuals Program which actually mimic a psychosis. Adding these elements guarantees that the Target will NOT be believed. I have enumerated only a FEW components which form the Targeted Individuals Program. Is it any wonder that when Snoop got wind of what was in store for him, he donned that red, white, and blue flag scarf on his head, and most humbly apologized. The Pentagon is missing 21 TRILLION dollars from its massive budget. It is safe to say that a potion of this missing money went towards the Targeted Individuals program! Vice -President Kamala Harris as a sitting member of both the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, as well as the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence was in all probability well aware of these crimes against humanity being perpetrated against everyday innocent Americans. If she had this knowledge and she and her colleagues failed to raise an alarm given the severity of the crimes, (and given that she took an oath to protect the constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic), then she and those sitting on these committees are complicit. It gets worse. Many of you may be acquainted with the book, “A Brief History of Time,’ by the brilliant, English physicist, Mr. S. Hawking. Due to a tracheotomy, Hawking became unable to speak. ALS, then, rendered him unable to move under his own volition. Unwilling to loose this unparalleled mind, British Intelligence outfitted Hawking with a CIA/DoD developed micro chip. According to Dr. Katherine Horton, (stop 007. com) when one thinks, unbeknownst to the thinker, the vocal cords vibrate. When an AI chip is placed in the area of the vocal cords, this chip is able to pick up any vibration from these vocal cords and decode the messages from the brain’s language center. Hawking also received a computer which could speak for him after the decoding had been accomplished. (It is highly doubtful that British Intelligence would have outfitted Hawking with this top secret equipment had he not worked for them! There are also photos of Hawking on J. Epstein’s infamous pedo island. Epstein worked with British,Israeli and U. S. Intelligence Agencies. (Look up Travis Bonifield and Stephen Moore to hear the Intelligence cover stories. )) In one of his video conferences, Edward Snowden made reference to the above mentioned AI chip; the difference being that Snowden referred to computer printouts of the AI translation rather than a voice translation. Unfortunately, the CIA/DoD also developed another version of this technology. In the second version, not only does the chip tap into the Subject’s vocal cords and, brain language center, it also inserts thoughts. Target’s have all been implanted with this nano technology Have you ever wondered why the Swiss have almost as many guns per citizen as the USA, but lack the mass killers? When Rice said Snoop would lose, and it wouldn’t be pretty, you can see she was not exaggerating. Once one is in the program, it is for life! NO EXCEPTIONS! My name is Gloria Hunt. I am a whistleblower and a Targeted Individual. I live in C. S. , N. C. I am NOT SUICIDAL; I am also NOT ACCIDENT PRONE. Please check and verify everything which I have written in this comment. Then PLEASE HELP TARGETED INDIVIDUALS by spreading the word. Only a public outcry will stop the torture, the experimentation, and the killing. Thank you. P. S. Biden, in his inauguration speech, made no mention of stopping the endless wars where a bomb is dropped by American forces every 12 minutes. Over one million persons have died in Iraq alone. Iraq did nothing to the USA. NOTHING! The invasion of and war in Afghanistan has gone on for over twenty years under Republican and Democratic Administration s alike. Invading Afghanistan has been to the cost of countless lives and to the profit of none. It is time for an end to military rule in the USA ... INCLUDING militarized, kill -happy policemen. We have a military which is under the direct orders of the Security Agencies, the corporations and the Elite. It’s time to put people and lives everywhere FIRST! STOP the ENDLESS KILLING!!!

    pentland is a coward. He's only playing tough because the black man was smaller than him and alone. Five to one if there were more than the one guy, and/or the guy was closer to his size, he'd be inside, behind the curtain, on the phone, calling the police.
