An Army Sergeant and His Attacker

Could the tide be turning against domestic unrest? An incident involving a white army sergeant, a black fellow, a knock down, a defense witness, and a crowd ready to pounce could be a sign of it.

brad johnson it is september the 4th of
00:03
2020
00:04
uh and you know the entire
00:08
zeitgeist of the west is weirdly
00:11
shifting
00:12
it’s almost difficult to keep up with
00:14
the shift but it’s also difficult
00:16
almost to root yourself to the way we’ve
00:18
always thought
00:20
and looked at and val evaluated
00:23
events because the shifts are so
00:25
fundamental
00:26
i think you want to talk about an event
00:30
that we all saw but didn’t fully
00:31
understand why don’t you explain it
00:35
okay uh basically there was a uh
00:38
a white army sergeant uh
00:41
walking back he’d gone to some stores
00:43
was walking back to his
00:44
car and got accosted in the street by a
00:47
black man who started out by
00:48
spitting on the guy’s car and uh
00:52
and then uh screaming at him and they
00:54
exchanged words at that point and then
00:56
the uh
00:57
the black guy lunged at him and so
01:00
kevin video and it’s even being reported
01:02
that way and the uh
01:04
so the army sergeant ladies just lays
01:06
him low single punch knocks him down
01:08
and basically the the black man laying
01:11
on his back on the ground
01:13
and the army guy is sitting on his chest
01:16
and tells people to call the police to
01:18
get there and
01:19
uh and a crowd starts to gather and a
01:22
lot of them are you know calling him a
01:24
racist and telling them to get off and
01:26
stuff like that and kind of a number of
01:29
little interesting
01:30
tidbits that came out of it one of the
01:32
guys got up right in their face and was
01:34
filming the black guy laying on the
01:35
ground
01:36
with the white army guy sitting on his
01:38
chest and you know he wasn’t like
01:40
putting full weight you could see he had
01:42
kind of his feet underneath him and was
01:44
just trying to
01:44
hold the guy down and uh and
01:47
so someone said hey can you breathe are
01:49
you all right the black guy starts
01:50
smiling at him going yeah i’m fine i’ve
01:52
been waiting for this
01:54
so the implication of that of course is
01:57
that this black guy was
01:58
was provoking this on purpose to
02:01
i guess get famous or who knows what but
02:04
uh
02:05
thinking it was somehow going to be good
02:06
for him to to do this until
02:08
some white guy knocks him down and uh
02:12
this army sergeant now in the comments
02:14
underneath this one of the people you
02:15
can see his
02:16
on his hat and and uh on his little
02:18
patch on
02:20
on the front of his uniform you can see
02:21
he’s indeed a sergeant and one of the
02:23
people commented
02:24
i wasn’t familiar with his the patches
02:27
on
02:28
his uniform so it didn’t identify his
02:31
uh what you know what he did
02:33
specifically to me
02:34
but one of the people commenting said he
02:36
was uh army special forces an sf guy so
02:40
uh that’s true yeah i mean the
02:43
the black guy provocateur picked exactly
02:47
the wrong guy to pick on
02:49
which you know irony and all of this but
02:52
some of the other things that came out
02:53
of it apparently this guy had been up
02:55
and down the street for a week
02:57
trying to provoke an incident of some
02:59
sort and he was harassing customers
03:01
going in and out of the stores
03:03
and the store owners had been calling
03:05
the police and complaining
03:07
some of whom were also black and so
03:10
out of this i i uh
03:13
the army sergeant uh you know good for
03:16
him standing his ground and
03:18
and i will say one of the things that
03:19
makes the army and
03:21
uh forgive me all those former marines
03:23
i’m going to lump you in with the army
03:24
in this case
03:25
i’m sure i’ll piss off somebody with
03:26
this but one of the things that makes
03:28
the
03:28
army and the marine corps so great is
03:31
our non-commissioned
03:32
officer training and and the people they
03:33
retain uh
03:35
and it’s one of the things that truly
03:36
makes our military superior to
03:38
uh the other militaries in the world for
03:40
the most part officer uh
03:41
core training is is excellent and
03:43
produces fabulous officers as well so
03:45
those two things together
03:47
are what make us strong this guy was a
03:49
product of that
03:50
uh and if he’s indeed an sf guy they get
03:52
a lot of a lot of training in fact i’d
03:54
done
03:54
training when i retired from the agency
03:56
that was one of the things i spent a lot
03:58
of time doing was
03:59
training sf and just certain aspects
04:01
that i had experience with
04:02
that was useful to them so worked with
04:05
them a lot always like those guys and
04:06
have a lot of respect for them
04:07
uh but one of the guys that came out of
04:10
the store was a black man in a red shirt
04:11
and if you see
04:12
in the film there’s a guy in the red
04:14
shirt kind of yelling at it looked to me
04:16
initially like he was yelling at the
04:19
army sergeant but
04:20
uh he was in fact yelling at the crowd
04:22
saying you know wait a minute you know
04:23
you didn’t
04:24
see what happened here you know this guy
04:27
is acrossing him and spinning his
04:29
car and that guy’s not a racist stop
04:32
calling him a racist and
04:34
a white supremacist and all this stuff
04:36
and
04:37
one of the things that was recorded is
04:38
somebody came up to the sergeant and
04:40
said
04:40
you know are you hitting our people are
04:42
you knocking down the ground he just
04:43
looked and said yeah
04:45
and he said but i got knocked into the
04:47
ground i’m not going to let him up till
04:48
police get here because i don’t want to
04:50
get up and start trying to punch me
04:51
again i’m not going to let anybody
04:53
add rational answers so out of all of
04:56
that
04:57
kind of one of the take-home things that
04:58
i find very interesting
05:00
is that there are indeed there’s a large
05:03
movement within the black population
05:04
that sees this stuff as out of control
05:06
for me the hero of the day you know as i
05:08
said kudos to the sergeant
05:11
but the hero of the day was that
05:13
apparently a shop
05:14
guy a shop owner shopkeeper uh
05:18
the black guy the red t-shirt you know
05:19
he’s kind of the hero of the day because
05:21
he came out and stood up to all of these
05:24
people that were the you know the horde
05:26
the black
05:27
you know radical element that was there
05:30
uh
05:30
trying to make this into some sort of
05:32
racial thing
05:33
and uh you know that took some courage
05:36
on his part and good for him and
05:38
i’m sure that within the black community
05:40
he’s going to be somebody that gets
05:41
attacked over that so
05:42
uh i thought you know if if there’s a uh
05:45
you know kind of like a mini profile and
05:47
courage award that it should go to that
05:49
guy because
05:50
he stood up did what was right did what
05:52
his conscience dictated and
05:54
pointed out that this this guy who was
05:56
the provocateur was
05:58
was up and down the street for a full
05:59
week you know bugging everybody
06:01
so it was nice to see you know that type
06:05
of balance come into the fray and
06:07
again it’s one of the things where i
06:08
just i predict that the democrats are
06:10
going to be deeply surprised by
06:12
the number of blacks that end up voting
06:14
for trump and and what’s coming up
06:16
because
06:16
they see this thing about defunding the
06:18
police and they universally hate it
06:20
they see how the schools are controlled
06:22
and they all want school vouchers so
06:23
they can
06:24
send their kids where they want i mean
06:25
that’s extremely popular among
06:27
the black population in the united
06:29
states so i think you take all of these
06:31
elements all the stuff that trump was
06:33
for
06:33
trying to do and the lowest unemployment
06:36
rate to ever exist among
06:37
pretty much all the minority populations
06:39
was was in the first part of trump’s uh
06:42
uh first um uh administrations
06:46
so uh it’s i think it’s a very
06:48
significant thing and as i said the true
06:49
kudus the true
06:51
uh recognition goes to that black guy in
06:53
the red t-shirt that was defending the
06:55
white
06:55
uh army sergeant and is there has the
06:58
army sergeant been arrested and jailed
07:00
over this or
07:01
are there is there any legal battle
07:03
happening over this
07:05
not yet when uh when the tape cut off in
07:07
fact the local people that were there
07:09
that were kind of the agitators were
07:11
telling the police that
07:12
they needed to arrest the army sergeant
07:14
but the second the police came the army
07:16
sergeant just stood up moved to the side
07:17
and
07:18
let them do their thing and they they
07:19
ended up arresting the guy in the ground
07:21
and the shopkeepers were the ones saying
07:23
hey wait a minute now that that’s the
07:25
guy causing the problems not this
07:27
army sergeant who got accosted in the
07:28
streets so i don’t think he’ll be
07:31
arrested
07:32
uh you know that
07:36
well we’ll see we’ll see the things are
07:38
so crazy now it sort of depends on
07:40
who’s in buffalo new york and the local
07:42
you know the mayor that’s there i don’t
07:44
know i’m not familiar with local
07:45
politics there i would just kind of
07:46
assume it’s democratic
07:48
so that that army sergeant probably
07:50
stands a chance of being arrested but
07:52
so far it doesn’t appear to be the case
08:03
