Looks like a nutjob without some context.

The Marine recognized the nacent jack booted fascism of a Police department under the control of one of the leading liberal fascists in the country, Mayor Bloomberg?

I would like to know more about this incident and whether people were actually assaulted by the NYPD.

I missed the part where the police were doing anything but standing there getting yelled at.

He was there to protect the OWS’ers according to an interview he did with Olberman.

It’s unclear who he’s “protecting”.
He looks like a guy ranting on a street corner, trying to get attention.

In fact, he looks and acts slightly deranged.
I’ve seen better acts on WWE.

The guy was ranting about seeing the cops beat on innocent people earlier that day. I suspect he was hanging out with the Occupy Wall Street crowd........

OWS is backed by Iran, North Korea, the American Nazi Party and the American Communist Party, AND OBAMA.

I thank that Marine for his service, but he and anyone else defending OWS needs to GET THEIR HEAD OUT OF THEIR REAR ENDS.

This is part of the OWS protests.

As far as I know, indulging in a political demonstration in uniform is not allowed at all, whether for a retired member, or active duty. This guy may be released from service, or maybe he never was a marine. Who knows. But either way, wearing a uniform to this event is hardly kosher.

This video is old, and the guy is a head case.

An Ex-Marine, a veteran, and one who wears a costume.

Look at his protests and interviews, he wears a partial marine work uniform, with dress ribbons added, a costume.

Good chance that he is not a ex marine.

I googled him, and it seems his veteran status is not in question.

This happened over a year ago. This guy was interviewed by Olbermann who has not been involved in the 'news' for a while.

This is associated with the "Occupy Wallstreet".

Then Shamar Thomas has joined the Senator Kerry school of United States veterans.

Kudos for Shamar Thomas standing up for the rights of others, but he needs to do it out of uniform. All conjecture aside, these are the rules:

DoD Instruction 1334.01- Para 3.1.3 The wearing of the uniform by members of the Armed Forces (including retired members and members of Reserve components)…is prohibited when participating in activities such as unofficial public speeches, interviews, picket lines, marches, rallies or any public demonstration…

Para 3.2 Former members of the Armed Forces…may wear the uniform in the highest grade held during such war service only on the following occasions and in the course of travel incident thereto: 3.2.1 Military funerals, memorial services, weddings, and inaugurals. 3.2.3 Wearing of the uniform or any part thereof at any other time or for any other purposes is prohibited.

He (and any other service members who see this post) should know the rules and should have been briefed on these military laws. His opinion is his own and by wearing that uniform he is, by the letter of the law, implying Service sanction of the cause for which the demonstration or activity is conducted. He is thus subject to the articles of the UCMJ.

Thomas is wearing a Marine utlity blouse.

with dress(sic) ribbons added

Ribbons are ribbons. They are not dress(sic) ribbons. Ribbons are worn on service and dress uniforms. Not utilties.

If you google this guy, you'll find more than a few sites that say Shamar Thomas' real name is Lyaba Ibo Mandingo, an actor, not a Marine.
I've found no actual proof that's true, nor that he served.

Out of work actor looking for a gig or a publicity hound. Doubt that he was ever in the Marines and he’s wearing ribbons on camoflage to tell you that.

Police should be given ribbons for their restraint.

He’s in a rather redressed state for a Marine.

I’m gonna call crazy...

This shows the level of professionalism on the part of the NYPD. In the old days (my time) pre cameras everywhere - this guy would have been told to move along. When he didn't he would have been tuned up and locked up. Not really professional but that's what would have happened.

“on our side”

OUR side? You stand with OWS and Barack Hussein Obama?

(Read the whole thread).

I am wondering who he is, he is wearing a device above his ribbons wthat doesn’t belong there

Marines dont do that, veteran or not

it looks like Sgt Chevrons and Marines wont do that, put them over heir ribbons

he is most likely a poser

Thank you for the correction.

With all that shouting and crap, the message got lost on me.

I shamefully must confess I didn’t realize it was a bunch of OWS hoodlums.

I must have had a temporary brain fart.

Thank you again.
