Former Marine to CNN: When I Fought for USA-I Was ‘Patriot’-When I Fight for My People I’m a ‘Thug'




When the man began walking away, a CNN reporter caught up with him and asked him to explain where his anger comes from. “They tell me we are apart of this country, man. How can we be?” he explained, asking her to look around at the police lined up.

As for the charges against the officers, the man was not satisfied: “We got to stop being pacified every time they throw us a bone where they want us to calm down, man. We need to wait for the end result to come in,” he said.

“I was willing to give my life for this country,” he continued. “When I was in the Marine Corps, they called me a ‘patriot.’ A marine. But now that I’m fighting for my people they call me a fucking ‘thug.’ They called me a ‘thug’ when I fight for my people,” he said. When the reporter recoiled at his cursing, he said he would not “sweeten up” anything.
