Yes seems that once again people flock to street theater as some how showing up “the Man”. In out lates one shows a guy claiming to be a Marine Sgt with two tours in Iraq braving shouting at Police nearby.
United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY went toe to toe with the New York Police Department. An activist in the Occupy Wall Street movement, Thomas voiced his opinions of the NYPD police brutality that had and has been plaguing the #OWS movement.
Thomas is a 24-year-old Marine Veteran (2 tours in Iraq), he currently plays amateur football and is in college.
Thomas comes from a long line of people who sacrifice for their country: Mother, Army Veteran (Iraq), Step father, Army, active duty (Afghanistan), Grand father, Air Force veteran (Vietnam), Great Grand Father Navy veteran (World War II).
Yea cause I am sure that the Police were not simply acting professional and not falling for you antics at trying to be a martyr for the cause. Nothing like a Rodney King incident to fill the coffers for the protest. I guess that this was the back up plan since the original one failed.
Here is a screen shot in case the video disappears. It shows a CAR so that should qualify for Stolen Valor. Is there anyone in the Marine Community that can check to see if this guy is a poser?
