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

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.”

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.

    It isn’t about country, it is your own damn integrity and knowing the difference between right and wrong…and not being an idiot led by the MSM…I am a veteran with service connected disability and just wish, for once, the idiotic masses to wake up and see that they are being played like puppets on strings…

    I’m a Vietnam Veteran who was wounded in action & I think these “Punks” are embarrassing! It tells a lot of how these kids were raised. Protesting is one thing but to loot & burn down businesses in their own home town is PATHETIC! Business owners should arm themselves & sit in their place of business. When the scumbags break in-well it’s now it’s self defense. Who’s going to miss them?? The parents that don’t teach them good morale values??? The politicians just love seeing this happen & are part of the problem!
