  • He just don't want a black man near his wife he can't trust, I don't think black people think much about white people but it looks like they're always thinking about us. How many black people do you see messing with white none stay in the house

  • It's staged

  • Yes dishonorable discharge for being a racist

  • I would like to see the entire video from start to finish.

  • Carry him outta there??? Who's mans is this?

  • Better watch out how you treat black people

  • Americans be like:

  • Imagine what would have happened if she wasn't recording. Love for you my Queen👑

  • What gives him the white to think his actions are warranted to police PUBLIC SIDEWAYS?

  • next a white man is gonna get charged for assault for just looking at a black person the wrong way or just flat out disagreeing

  • Dude is literally pushing him and violating and screaming get out of my way 😂😂

  • His wife is also to blame she didn’t do nothing

  • Here goes the media again learn what happened before reporting!!!!!!!I don't live far from where this happened. I'm sure there some ring cameras around.

  • These charges ain’t sht but charge his wife too...

  • Karma is a bitch

  • He needs to be kicked out from the military not honorable

  • I wonder what happened before they started recording???

  • 1:57 there are two black women walking in the background. What's with not confronting them? Yea we don't know what led up to this, but I would say it would be kind of funny to send Francis Ngannou to this neighborhood and see this guy maybe get in someones face that's his own size? Send Ngannou to his house... and don't penalize Ngannou for what happens... That would be a better punishment than $500 for this hick.

  • Its all over SC, there's lots to be looked at in SC ,need to investigate compensation for black vets !

  • Remember people mental health checks are not mandatory for active duty soldiers and police officers here in America!

  • We need Jesus Christ, for we are nothing nor can we do anything without Him :(

  • Ok now show all the world star videos and other videos of black people knocking out whites,asians and anyone else. Women with there children getting knocked out via the knock out game etc..yet a white guy who happens to be a soldier who can defend himself shows a little of that aggression that black people use to intimidate others then its a whole different ball game and just more white supremacy. If it was a black guy was standing there doing that it wouldn't be news and mainstream news wouldn't cover it.

  • GMA is disgusting. Black VS White 🖕 Other incidents in the area, by same person AND what happened prior to the video? Keep pushing the propaganda And the hero(?) chick 😂 talking about ‘them’ yet another disgusting version of separation. People have no clue what this is doing to the psyche of humans around us, let alone what other countries are laughing about. #STOPPROPAGANDA

  • the media will blow this confrontation up but won’t report all the asians getting their heads stomped on by black people the last few weeks.


  • And Of course there was a cell phone camera handy to record this fake scripted event

  • Your the news, investigate and then report the whole story.

  • He better be put in population with tons of non white men who are in a mood for white man ass!

  • I wonder what happens if white person walks through the south side of Chicago. What makes this situation about race anyway? The alleged victim was probably acting like a little punk.

  • Good. Get rid of that soldier. We don’t need racists in our military.

  • The thing is, dude lived in the neighborhood. It’s like you can’t go anywhere if you’re any other color than white, without harassment. 🤦‍♂️

  • Like we need more of your so called “awesome” videos. Black chick worried he was gonna be another hash tag. Now BLM is violating his property. Where are the cops to arrest them. You come on my property threatening me and mine you won’t like the outcome

  • Why are people like him so bothered..

  • Lol military guy acting like all the police do. That’s where they go after their tours. See that 13 year old gunned down by the Iraq vet

  • Don't believe everything the media tells you. The media is the most powerful corrupt entity on Earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and make the guilty innocent because they control the minds of the masses.

  • Wow.....what a fucking idiot.....

  • You can be sure there is more to this story than our free vomit press reported.Barrysayit

  • Go to hell with that 30 days and 500 slap on the wrist ugh

  • O thats rite the.crooked fake.ass news wont show any of that

  • That black kid was trying to steal probably in the past

  • It's the selected editing that's broadcasted that pushes the narrative. Yall know what you're doing.

    • Racism is ok huh? Being violent for no reason and putting your hands on someone just being of the skin color is ok huh?

    • If these events didn't happen in the first place, they wouldn't have to report it anyways.

  • Get whitey!

  • Pppppllllleease what happen before that.i wonder

  • Bet he had too much to drink probably went all night til morning hence the sunrise. Then woke up and didn’t even remember he did this. 😂🤣😂🤣 He was on autopilot he can’t even argue he just yelled and repeated himself. 😂🤣😂🤣 The army will more than likely slap him on the wrist and push him out with his severance and benefits.

    • Aaaaaaand That’s a typical army wife, fukn privileged Karen’s. 😒🤮🤢

  • Stick N’ Move. Stick N’ Move‼️ I would’ve lost all of my shits because don’t touch me PERIOD IDC how big you are...behind them Muscles he a Lil Pu$$Y‼️He got muscles so he could build enough confidence to do this Try him at heavyweight.

  • I wanna know what the kid did before.

  • Dirty repub nazi tump trash

  • I love to see both sides of this...two side of each story. This comment section is nut

  • O but its ok blm goes and disturbs white people who are just sitting.there eating dinner or just a nite out. Blm taking food off the table hollaring screaming at them but thats all ok

  • I'd like to hear the whole story.

    • Racism is ok huh? Being violent for no reason and putting your hands on someone just being of the skin color is ok huh?

  • Iam Indian

  • Just remember there are always 2 sides to a story. Something could have been done to provoke the soldier

  • I just want to know how it started

  • What a dick 😡

  • Always a race thing

  • Why South Africa is still so segregated?

  • What a.joke

  • He needs a dishonorable discharge immediately what are you citizens thinking about that's why he needs dishonorable discharge and take his guns away this guy's a danger to society he's a ticking Time Bomb waiting to snap on anybody because he's a US Soldier and he's right like our government yeah why did Joe this guy needs to be thrown out immediately

  • Its all.trumps fault

  • You’re not release his name because he probably has a rap sheet a mile long

  • This is not news.

  • They gonna blame it on trump

  • CLEARLY KNEW HE WAS BEING FILMED was asked to leave MULTIPLE TIMES ...this bald guy defends our country!!!!!!!he deserves some space you people don’t know what goes on there. Fuck that skinny dude for being a arrogant assehole. Bet he’s jobless

    • Bet you do meth

  • So white guy shoved a black guy and told him not to talk to his wife and that’s assault? This is ridiculous this is just dividing people and if anything this type of false coverage will create actual racists.

  • Racist ppl needs help for real 😳. We all bleed the same. Boycott racism

  • stop monetizing this shit

  • More race baiting.

  • It was the other way around you would be singing a different tune.

  • Bro this is fake a guarantee it

  • RACEBAITING at it's finest. Proof GMA want America to burn.

  • Wow only $500 fine and 30 days?? 29 of them days will be suspended most likely! That’s some bull shit! They would’ve locked a black man up the instant this would’ve happened!

  • Why did no one intervene? Instead of filming and watching?? Wtf!?

  • This isn't the right way to handle someone you don't recognize walking through your neighborhood. However , I would also like to point out that if I walked around the deep projects where I don't know anyone and stick out I wouldn't get a very friendly welcome.

  • I hate how race is in every title nowadays

  • OK so the dude committed a class C misdemeanor and that’s national news that’s fucking bullshit

  • slflow.info/long/6gxI0hxfogCcxGYSXNHHhQ.html

  • Good thing this lady was recording

  • The soldier is a punk

  • All the time these are the worst kind too! Mr.Karen bet ya kids are proud of you!!!

  • The guy looks like my wife's yoga instructor

  • Yeah he just went there and picked up the guy cause he was black yeah right

  • White fag please kys if any fags like him are reading this get that gun that u have and kill yourself u Fucking cracker bitches

  • I thought that was joe Rogan for a sec

  • Holy crap, if my child grows up to be as stupid as any of these people in the comments who think this story is the whole truth, I would be ashamed and have failed as a father. The reporter literally says they have absolutely zero idea what happened before hand. NEWS IS A JOKE.

  • Send him to jail

  • If a white kid went through a black neighborhood and got beat to death Do you think that would make the news I doubt it

  • Not allowed to kick criminals out of your neighborhood before they hurt somebody, I guess your supposed to give him all the opportunities he wants to commit a crime.

  • Good job sheriff! 👏🏼

  • In da hood white man woulda got his ahh 187 folk ain't playin like dat bruh

  • The woman who I assume is the man's wife saying that the cops were coming and "hang on a little longer, let's see how that goes" sounds like a threat of white privledge. I'm curious if he will be disciplined by the service.

  • That’s what you call news

  • They need to arrest that rabble trashing an Americans home in broad daylight instead of filming it like we film everystupidthing now

  • Let talk about how a 13 year old latino child was just assassinated by a Chicago police officer.

  • Ah yes, main stream media at it's finest. (The reason why I don't watch any news)

    • Watch the video again and listen to what everyone says

  • Very distgusting excuse of a human being...... these people are just ignorant. The poor man was just walking peacefully.

  • Alternate title: Dollar store Johnny Sins and Wife was on the wrong vid now he gets what he deserves

  • Steve Wilkos needs to chill.

  • There were 2 other instances in that neighborhood that involved the young man? So there's a history and more context to the story and we are only seeing 20 seconds of a video just so good morning American can dump fuel on the dumpster fire. Context matters, I want to know what led up to this.
