    I'm not justifying this mans actions, but CONTEXT IS IMPORTANT. What if this guy was walking around the neigborhood stalking little kids? So hows about we all stop jumping to conclusions until the FULL story develops? If it turns out that this was race driven, then fuck that pos.

    The sergeant was drunk, both on power and alcohol and he’s the type that gives recruits an unpleasant time, but he can’t do so when it’s a civilian! He really let himself, and his community down, but the worst thing of all was letting his regiment down, and sullying the good name and military reputation of the regiment with his actions. Such actions are bad enough if carried out by a new recruit, but to see it from a sergeant aged 42, is beyond the Pale - and the military don’t appreciate being shown up this way. They already have a colossal amount of work ahead of them just trying to convince anyone that might listen, that they’ve identified the areas, the people and the actions that have allowed institutionalised racism to exist for so long in the armed forces - perhaps the police might also learn from this incident and the inquiry that is bound to follow?

Obsessing about race/identity politics IS ALSO RACIST! (All of those are believed by Democrats. Democrats are extremely racist, Trump Supporters/Conservatives/Republicans are not)

    Now wait a minute, I was one of the few white kids growing up in East St. Louis, MO and was told everyday I don't belong in the neighborhood. I got jumped everyday for being white, shot at 3 times before 2nd grade walking home from school and thought my name was cracker in kindergarten. Why isn't this reality being covered on the news? There are neighborhoods all across the country white people are not allowed into, and if you end up in them there is no warning to leave they'll just end your life right then and there.
