This is the ACTUAL MARINE from the Video. I will say 1st that I don't hate the Police or more specifically the NYPD. My Great-Grandfather, Grandfather, Mother, and Step-Father have all served in Combat Zones. I was deployed to Iraq in 04 and 06. My 1st Combat Action was in Fallujah 2004. My parents both served for 20 plus years. We fought for the American Citzens without complaint. All to come home and see INNOCENT Citzens get Brutalize by the Police they must Trust. No HONOR in that. SEMPER FI
@SgtShamarThomasUSMC I know you don't hate the police or the NYPD neither do most citizens ... but your display of outrage so perfectly summed up what many of us feel after what we have been witnessing via citizen reports. My father and grandfather were Canadian veterans in both world wars so i respect and honour you sir. Thanks!
You know your country is fucked up when a soldier gets laughed at by a police officer.
Mad respect to the Marine though, he had the balls to say what everyone else was thinking.
@SgtShamarThomasUSMC Navy Seabee Iraq war combat vet here ( Fallujah 05-06). You Marines always had our backs. I see you haven't let up! Thank you for still fighting for the Constitution and Human Rights.
thank god for people like this man.....upholding his oath to serve and protect THE PEOPLE of this country.....not to serve and protect the criminal scum (politicians/federal reserve) ruining this country
The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank which CANNOT be audited
Blah blah blah SUPPORT THE TROOPS blah blah blah. Then the troops come home from one fight to face this one.
Only the 99% actually support the troops. The 1% robbed them of many of their benefits, and post-service job prospects. The 1% are the ones who invent all the stupid wars, and then send our noble soldiers off to fight for ignoble causes.
I am sick of our soldiers AND OUR POLICE being used this way! We the people need to take our nation back.
And all the honor goes to you, Marine Sgt Shamar Thomas! Thank you for standing up to those police/bullies who feel abuse the power that WE have vested in them!
Simply put, you rock!
A true hero..... and an honorable man all respect to you sir...
Thank you Sgt.
