Look, this is really hard to say, and if I said this to his face he'd probably punch me in the face and I'd deserve it, but it has to be said, this veteran went to a war based on a lie in order to bring America into a police state, and now he reaps what he sowed. I feel sorry for him, and I really wish this kind of insanity would stop, but step back a second and realize that this veteran helped to bring in this police state, not entirely by himself by any means, but when it comes to tyranny what goes around comes around. In a few years we'll hear about how the police officers who beat up this veteran will get his pension stolen and jailed for not mowing their grass or something else ridiculous.

while I sorta agree in spirit with philosophia here
especially about the eventual fate of these cops.
never generalize/make sweeping statements
this guy was reserve, those folks are more the helping hand aspect
not everybody who did a tour in Afghanistan or Iraq or wherever killed/raped women/babies/civilians, a lot of people "miss", especially when in a large group, I know I would if I'd been drafted or whatever
as OP points out as well a lot of these dupes/cannon fodder [not you pianopraze] wise up and not just when something like this happens to/ comes to their attention. quite a few learned who the real enemy is, they simply "just have not begun to fight".
pianopraze: hope you dont' mind but i've linked your post to the 14 yr afghan girl thread which is now into 13 pages of warpedness now implying girl raped her attackers.
there is still time for me to remove it, so just let me know.
philosophia loved that last bit it's the nature of the system.
