You know, I cant help but wonder what some of those cops are standing there thinking while they look at him. I would think a couple of them had to of been in the service themselves. Must be a strange catch 22 for them.

More to the point, If I were a cop doing this to people who are wearing the uniform and are "currently serving", I'd be wondering about wheather or not the next person I am ordered to spray is sitting inside a Tank..lol
When uniforms start showing support, it's time for TPTB to worry, a lot!!

Even though I have a serious issue with the "Occupy" movement, I find this to be a very-very awe inspiring and impressive video. While watching the clip without volume, the scene speaks volumes in of itself. If you watch the expressions on the police, they have no idea on what to do next. They are standing there saying to themselves, "What the..?". I can just hear their thoughts in that moment.
Unfortunately, he is not in the military. He is wearing an earring in uniform, which is forbidden by the military dress code of conduct. My father was an admiral in the Navy.
It doesn't win me over, but it is an impressive sight to see.

Your idiocy doesn't even deserve a response. But who are you to judge someone that has put their life on the line for this country?
As a veteran I don't expect a civilian to dictate or even read my dictations to me. I know my laws and what can be stretched, so if I stretch any said dictations civilians should mind their own business. As long as I'm not hurting anyone. The brave deserve leniency.- My commander

One brave man versus multiple chicken#s. This is what it has all come down to, and this is the calm before the storm.
This isn't brave!! Overseas, we have terrorists using human shields. Here we have protesters using uniform shields. Both have one thing in common...they HOPE the other side injures them or the "shield", because it can then be used for propaganda to further their cause. As in, "look what those infidels did!!!" Am I equating protesters to terrorists? NO! But I AM saying that they are resorting to the same tactics to make the other side look bad. Nothing but a manipulative way to gain your emotional response. Feel manipulated yet? You should!/
Brave....really? That's not brave. Brave would have been to stand there WITHOUT the uniform, as just another crazy protester who refused to move after being repeatedly told to do so.
If they really wanted change with things that matter, they'd find a better and more effective way to do it, than to provoke their brothers in law enforcement, tasked with keeping the peace.
Yet ANOTHER former military member who is not active duty...most likely a military hater too. How do I know this? Because he's sporting a big, fat earring in his ear. Not to mention the fact that he's wearing a uniform.
Do people not understand that if these folks loved their service to their country so much, they'd never do this? This is clearly a smear campaign on the military itself, to create disunity. I wouldn't be surprised if these folks were hired plants, purposely paid to do this.
Stop allowing your emotions to be manipulated so easily....unless you enjoy being a puppet. I'm starting to wonder if it's possible for the majority of the people here to watch with indifference, and just OBSERVE with caution. None of you know the whole story or who is behind what. That alone should make all of you want to proceed with extreme caution.

I really dont think he is in the military...ear rings...not allowed IAW Navy/Army Reg. Seems to me someone went to the Army & Navy Surplus store and got a uniform. Anyone who has been in the military can spot a fake in a second. I call fake!

Recall how they just "discovered" how John Olsen (marine who got shot by tear gas canister) started the website "ihatemarines.com." Really original and believable story, correct?
How long until they "discover" this man created a website called "ihatethenavy.com"?
