I am a Veteran. Yes he was wrong to wear the uniform with the patches. Just the uniform I have to problem with as long he doesn’t tell war stories. He clearly wants to serve our country…I’ll give him that. So he did apologize which may have been from all the heat…But never the less, I have no reason to believe he isn’t sorry. Let’s educate him and not burn him at the stake. At least in this case.
maybe. if he had put jump wings on I would say draw and quarter him. Rangers feel pretty much the same way about folks putting on that tab that have not earned it. It really is a big deal. That little $2.00 piece of cloth represents a lot. I am going to go out on a limb and say that YOU are not airborne, ranger, EOD, or a graduate of any particular special type school in the army that made you a member of the elite. I was airborne for over 10 years and served alongside rangers at Bragg although I was not a ranger myself. I understand how the rangers felt about it. I really don't care HOW freaking sorry he was that he got caught, because that's all his sorry crap is about.... he got caught. I really despise stolen valor cases.

Two years ago I had to use deadly force. I personally knew the individual. Through these actions I saved my wife, and myself. If I wouldn’t have done that I would not be here today. However, it has changed me as a person. It has triggered ptsd and other things. If someone is in danger of losing their life you HAVE to do what you need to. However, for some the aftermath of a shooting can be extremely traumatic. Even some police officers have issues dealing with it. Other than my therapist, I don’t have anyone else that I can talk to that has been through this like I have. The man that took action at the dollar store potentially saved the lived of many. Many will call him a hero…but I bet he doesn’t feel like one.
Sadly doing the right thing is seldom easy or rewarding. That's why we who witness or hear of it celebrate it so much.

michael…I salute them also. And my friend I also salute YOU. I can’t imagine having that job. Not sure I could handle it psychologically. You are a true American. Thank you what you did watching over our fallen soldiers.

I thank him for his service. It amazes me how most of you can pass judgement. I don’t know.. Is it so bad the man has something inside him that bothers him. Oh but I forget. It’s war. That’s what he gets paid to do. Just kill with a smile. And yes I’m a Veteran. Trust me…I’ve been there..done that.. I did my job and potentially saved lives from my actions, but that doesn’t mean years after the fact you don’t question certain things. Some of these comments make me sick. Thank him for his service and leave it at that. Judgement is something that is not yours to make.
So the cop shot the dog because he thought it would kill him or cause him grave bodily harm? How about using pepper spray? If I went out and shot a dog in that manner I bet the cops would be on my ass about it. I understand that it was loose..I get it… But seriously….

I am so sick and tired of seeing police go way too far. But trust me…there will come a time when “the man” is going to pay the piper.

Time to look in to buying a house in Russia. Grrrr… I hate the cold

Wow, I need a vacation…. I actually think I believe him. He did have a good point about the “evidence” just like before Iraq. I’m sure I’ll get nasty responses for that.

What the heck ?? We will see who is in the wrong when the lawsuit gets awarded to this man. But all you cops and ex-cops say…”he was non compliant” .. Yes you are correct. However there was excessive force. Don’t even begin to tell me all those cops couldn’t have cuffed him. I remember in Iraq we cuffed people a lot more “crazy” than this dude. Give me a break. But you say..”the man was putting officers at risk”…lol…. Yes, the job is risky.. cowboy up or find a different job.

Go to the actual news report video. Or facebook. Unless you want to send money I would call a local grain store in that area and purchase some hay, dog food, etc. Say it’s for Tony. They know what’s going on. That’s the route I will go.

I saw this on a news report. People are already donating food, and supplies to help with his animals. Arrest warrant issues for the two teens that supposedly did this. My prayers are with this man.

I know many may laugh at someone with PTSD that has a service dog. What gives someone else the right to do that. I am a Veteran myself. And yes I’ve been involved in things that most cannot imagine. And then there are other Veterans that say “I’ve seen it all too and I’m fine”. Well thank God you are. Maybe without his dog he would lock himself in his house and probably be in bed all day. He served his country. Is it too much to ask to let him have a companion. But then again …Veterans give it all and have to come home and put up with garbage talk from idiots. I know he shouldn’t let the dog lick off his plate out of respect to others and the owner.
