"There Is No Honor In This Shit!"

This video is of United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY, who recently went toe-to-toe with the New York Police Department as 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.

When he gets to shouting, "There is no honor in this shit!" and saying, "It takes a coward to harm an unarmed civilian. This is not a war zone, these are unarmed people, it does not make you tough to hurt these people," I just can't help but think of all the domestic violence victims and survivors. I hear this honorable man standing up for all of us too.

From this man's YouTube profile:

Sgt. Shamar Thomas USMC Veteran. I took an Oath that I live by.I am NOT anti-NYPD. I am anti- Police Brutality. I am no longer under contract with the USMC so I do NOT have to follow military uniform regulations. I DON'T affiliate myself with ANY GROUPS or POLITICAL ORG. I affiliate myself with the AMERICAN PEOPLE that's it. I REFUSE to affiliate with anything that SEPERATES. There is an obvious problem in the country and PEACEFUL PEOPLE should be allowed to PROTEST without Brutality. I was involved in a RIOT in Rutbah, Iraq 2004 and we did NOT treat the Iraqi citizens like they are treating the unarmed civilians in our OWN Country. No one was brutalized because our mission was to "WIN the hearts and minds", why should I expect anything less in my OWN Country.


PS Zero Hege reports this:

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).
