I love how when he finally walks away people are chearing for him and thanking him for what he 'has' done as 'is' doing. It shows how much people really do respect the people fighting for their country.
Now that is how america should be ran. I believe if we as a society do what he talked about that we would be a lot better off. I highly respect all military forces and I know without them, we would not be here today. I know we have some military personnel here in the Brigade and I would also like to say Thank you for what you have done.
I'm currently in the Civil Air Patrol, an auxilary of the air force. Now the way the marine spoke out was unnecessary. Did you see the cops hurting "unarmed civilians"? My dad's a cop, and cops don't arrest people for protesting, unless they're disturbing the peace and breaking things. I know for a fact that police would not abuse their power in any way shape or form. We're all on the same side here and it's ridiculous for us to fight each other and debate over honor. I respect and thank all military and para-military personnel in this country and abroad. I pray the rest of the country follows suit.

This guy took it way over the top. There is no back story presented here which makes it easy for the viewer to side with the marine. Honestly, he sounds a little crazy.
When a riot breaks out, it is their duty to protect innocent people and neutralize rowdy rioters. No one forced these "innocent" people to start and participate in a riot. It was their own choice to disrupt the peace for whatever they want to riot about.
The reason the police were wearing protective gear and neutralizing civilians is because rioters are violent and they are not thinking in a clear state of mind. I've been caught up in a few riots in my life while living in the city and those people are crazy, violent and wild. As an example, when Obama won the election, thousands and thousands of people flooded the streets, broke into shops and cars, set cars on fire, destroyed thousands of dollars worth of property, just because we had a black president.
Sure this marine should be honored for his service, but he should not be protecting "innocent" people while telling the police who are protecting civilians and the peace that they are doing their job wrong. He was just looking for a reaction and putting himself on a pedestal for something that he is passionate about. Just because he's passionate about something, doesn't mean he is right about it.
Honestly Tank I would believe someone in the Military over a cop any day. I personally don't like cops ...... well in Florida. The Military always deserves the support of their people, so maybe you should just think that over a bit. Oh btw the C.A.P doesn't have anything on AFJROTC :P
Like Solace said there is no backstory nor do you see any police even do anything. I saw a video last week about someone yelling they had been pepper sprayed or something while storming a barrier. But I kind of understand when they were trying to break down a police barrier.
Pretty Inspiring that someone would stand up and do that, and managing to gain such a crowd is pretty legendary.
Never been to America, but I'm pretty sure that's not an everyday event and if it is, I'm jealous of you all.
