Complain about his uniform or lack thereof BUT he did swear an oath to uphold and defend The Constitution (Not the country, not the president and not the people) of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Sam, you need ot understand how people perceive things, without that jacket, this man loses a good portion of his credibility.
Without knowing any of his "accomplishments" you hear that he was at least an E5 in the military, anyone that isn't up to par on military structure "knows" the rank. And knows that a great deal of respect comes from it, usually.
Now, would his impact have been as much had he walked up, and said I`m a vet of the Iraq war, this is what I think. * in civilian clothing.
As I stated earlier, I find everything he said to be untrue, I`ve been asking for a good, unbiased video that shows the "peaceful protesters" conducting business that caused the police to show up. Then I may believe the supposed brutality angle. Though when its 1-2 cops vs a mob, a quick takedown is better than a slow struggle for mob mentality.

What he was saying to the cops- there is no honor in attacking peaceful protesters in a capacity of an officer whose sole purpose is to serve and protect a peaceful citizen. Put things in perspective for the police. You could see it in their eyes. That military jacket he wore with medals was absolutely the right choice. Good man. W

omg you people that are griping about his uniform. just listen to his words its little crap like that that gets the whole picture out of whack. just like when "liberals" and "conservatives" start griping about each other and let the real problems continue because they can't figure out that we are all the same.
