Ranger that called the fake soldier out gets arrested immediately after the confrontation
RTBA News ^ | 3-18-2014 | Kristopher Vieira

Posted on 03/18/2014 5:58:00 PM PDT by servo1969

The man behind the footage of calling a fraud soldier out for wearing Ranger, E.O.D., and 101st Airborne Tab was arrested immediately after the video by the campus authorities.

The reason? He was charged with disturbing the peace and making threats against a phony soldier who was pretending to serve and die for our country.

The police reported that Vieira, the man confronting the fake soldier, approached him on several occasions and verbally assaulted the fraud! Well there’s a pretty valid reason behind the so-called unnecessary assault.

Vieira, who uploaded video of the confrontation to YouTube, was later arrested by campus authorities for confronting the man in military clothing.

“(Vieira) approached him on several occasions and verbally went after him,” Delta police officer Jim Bock told KXTV. “He’s been counseled on each occasion to stop. There are proper ways to handle these issues.”

The man who was wearing fake tabs told the authorities that he did indeed serve as a Ranger. What a fraud! The police also told KXTV that it is not illegal to wear a uniform as long as the person wearing it is not trying to reap any benefits.

Vieira thinks otherwise, and I’m sure the rest of you reading this do as well.

“It strikes a nerve when someone goes around faking that uniform. It’s very disrespectful,” Vieira said.

Were the authorities justified for arresting a man who got emotional and upset over a liar because his 4 Ranger brothers died serving for our country? He is a proud Ranger, and we believe he is as innocent as you can be.

Maybe we ought to figure out who this fake is and out him. Maybe someone who lives nearby this school ought to go and just point and laugh, rather than insulting him. No law against pointing and laughing, or telling passers-by that he’s a fraud. The point is to excite contempt for him rather than to make him seem like a victim.

Like the commenter said - if he were walking around in uniform with a badge and telling everyone he was a cop would that be cool with San Joaquin Delta College?

If he tried that with Hells Angels colors, he’d be walking around with a ball-peen hammer sticking out of the top of his head.

We had a pretty robust debate here on the Stolen Valor Act when United States v. Alvarez went to the SCOTUS in 2011. Seems you have freedom of speech to wear or claim status you never earned, but those who did have no freedom of speech when they call you out on it...

That the REAL Vet gets arrested really ticks me off.

I am one that won’t wear a hat or shirt that promotes a Ship or Unit I didn’t serve on or in.

Not so many years ago ‘we’ could say lets go with a jury trial NOW and this foolishness would have been stopped.

More so in that era NO self respecting Police would have arrested the REAL DEAL and maybe would have taken the wannabee in to see if everything was in proper order.

Course then a good number of Police were Vets and while maybe not downright disregarding another Vet, at least they would give you a ‘fair shake’ if you ‘respected their new uniform’.

These misfit robotons in there nowadays, with tests etc geared to the weakest of the lot, allows a lot of not so desirable people in AND they have to be careful what they ‘wash them out for’.

Ok, I know it was along time ago (1970) but I seem to remember being told when I was DROS’d that I had twenty-four hours and after that I was not allowed to wear my uniform again. Something change?

Looking at his picture makes me nauseous. Beyond creepy uncle fester type.

Campus cops have no class. In the same league as the poser I guess. They probably arrested Vieira as a professional courtesy to the fraud.

Seems you have freedom of speech to wear or claim status you never earned, but those who did have no freedom of speech when they call you out on it...

That's why I advocate making fun of him instead of having an angry confrontation. Let everyone around him know what a contemptible, pathetic little worm he is. If you shout and scream, you get arrested yourself, but if you are choking with laughter and trying to drag other people into the contemptuous, derisive laughter, there are no grounds for arrest. Being laughed at is far harder on someone's ego and far more likely to make them go hide.

Doesn’t look like it would apply in this case but a good test of whether a person is EOD or not is to start a snowball fight with them. If they don’t put rocks in the snowballs, then they’re not EOD.

Both anger or laughter are reactions. It is the one who is knowingly pretending to be something he is not who is the provocateur.

I sort of feel sorry for the guy. He looks like he might be a bit off mentally.

I remember a guy many years ago who claimed he had many pro offers as a pitcher. The first day our camp team practiced I noticed he did indeed look like he knew what he was doing at 3rd base. It only took a few minutes to realize he was no good at all. He had all the right moves except he couldn’t field or throw.

He had a letter jacket and I noticed it had MGR on the letter. Everyone knew that meant “manager” but he claimed it stood for “most games recorded”.

Yes but they are not trying to give the impression of being active duty...and they have the right to wear whatever uniform articles they have left.

This ass was trying to pick up chicks, or cruise for guys on campus or whatever. He is trying to portray himself as active duty military.

That should be illegal.

For what its worth, didnt see anything in the video that should have led to an arrest. And after being arrested, the two cops both looked scared. That being said, I’d have given the poser 2 choices...take it off, or I’ll remove it for you.

Right. But let some fraud wear their police officer’s uniform! That would be quite a different story altogether.

Try laughing & pointing publically at a prancing Gay Pride faggie and see what happens. HATE CRIME!!!!

As for post Vietnam discharge, I was told you could wear your uniform until you arrived at your home of record. BTW we didn’t have the `Ruptured Duck’ emblem of the returning WWII vets.

From the "Stolen Valor" Facebook page:

"Okey Dokie, we are being drowned in requests on this goober smooch, we, as well as several others have jumped onboard in support of the Vet who got arrested during this call-out. All we can ask is please be patient, the wheels are in motion, have to wait on paperwork to come back, we haven't, nor will we forget about him."

People who have separated with an honorable discharge are authorized to wear their dress uniform at ceremonies or public events, but that’s about it.

This guy obviously never served a day in his life, and he most certainly never earned his Ranger tab. If you told a real Ranger to remove his tab or else, that guy would fight with everything he had.

Second video isn’t working.

The guy wearing the uniform probably just thought it looked cool. Ignorant, not malicious.

The guy calling him out, of course, should not have been arrested. The cop who arrested him needs a (metaphorical) beat-down.

I have known many rangers and USMC people. They will fight to the end to defend their colors. They will call out people who wear t shirts or jackets that imply they were members.
They sweated and bled for the right to wear the globe and anchor or the ranger tab. And for some poser to try and pass themselves off as being one is sad.
Maybe a week in Boot Camp or Ranger school will cure them.

Since the military is covered by special laws under the UCMJ, I think we should have an additional special law for those pretending to be covered by it: Automatic enlistment as an E-0 (A new rank for prisoners) for 5 years hard-labor penalty for attempting to defraud the public by making them think they are covered by special laws.

Let’s not forget, the UCMJ conveys special handling under civil and criminal law for military personnel. Attempting to defraud the public into thinking your are covered by those special laws means you should be held accountable for them.
