Vietnam veteran stands up to Baltimore rioters, becomes hero of the night

[sharenow]

While police stood by and watched the city of Baltimore succumb to looting and plundering, one lone Vietnam veteran stood in front of them, and in front of rioters, and took control of the situation like only a veteran can.

Robert Valentine, who initially identified himself as “just a soldier,” was caught by CNN cameras yelling at the rioters to go away. Shockingly, they listened.

CNN reporter Joe Johns asked Valentine if he was concerned for his own safety when he confronted the mob.

“I did 30 years, OK, came out a Master Sergeant. I’ve seen more than all this,” he said. “I’ve been through the riots already. This right here is not relevant. They need to have their butts at home. They need to be in their home units with their families studying and doing something with their life. Not out here protesting about something that is not really about nothing.

“They do not respect this young man’s death. You know. Now, mama and daddy lost a child. That could be them. So I’m very pissed.”

Outrage! Judge hammers white victims of armed home invasion for racism, lets criminal go free.

When asked why he did it when others would be afraid, Valentine gave the greatest answer.

“I love my country. I love my Charm City. I’m an American,” he said. “I’m not black, white, red, yellow or nothing. I am American.”

Too bad Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake doesn’t have the same leadership ability.
