unless his parents are OLD, this guy looks about 30 or so, and his PARENTS were in Iraq/Afganistan?????
He is everything that a soldier should be. He stands up for his people. He fights for his people and their rights.
He IS Lance cpl. Shamar Thomas.
You know we were over there in the 90's right? Also, perhaps his parents are career soldiers?
It is very possible for his parents to have been over there. You should know that, soldier.
Let's say that he is 30 ( We don't know know)
The gulf war started in what, 90? 91? So about 20-21 years ago. If he is 30 years old, that would put his parents in their 50's. There is no reason
they could not have been over there then....
As for Afghanistan. As I said, ever heard of a career soldier? Surely you have. I know of lots of old guys who got shipped over to Afghanistan.
The guy gave his ranking and full name. I promise you, if this guy was going around parading as a soldier and he was not one, some one would have
busted his ass by now.
You are wrong.
Nice try though
But hey, call BS all you want. You don't seem to get the protest. I encourage you to actually go see it for yourself. Because if you are getting your
info from the media, you are getting LIES.
And besides, regardless of who he is, he is right! He is mad because cops have been attacking unarmed peaceful protestors and as he says, it takes a
coward to attack an unarmed civilian.
take a look at the video within this article. Tell me you agree with what that cop did. Tell me you would not be upset to. Tell me this cop is not a
coward for grabbing a person who was walking and not even facing him and punching him!
Can you tell me that? No? Then that is your clue to get your priorities straight, because that aggressive cop, represents who you are siding with.
I pray that it does not get as bad as it did in Egypt or Libya... But you just watch what happens if it ever does. The military, like in Egypt and
Libya, will side with the people. But hey, you feel free to go stand with the government.... They will be awful lonely and will need the company.
The cops are being aggressive. Not the protestors. This should be your clue that something is majorly wrong! The system is broke. Time to fix it. With
or with out you. But frankly, you have shown in this thread that you just don't get it... So maybe you HAVE chosen the right side for you.
You don't get it and neither do they. If you support that kind of behavior from the cops and do not support peaceful protesting from OWS, then shame
