I only wear all white vans and I would never let nobody barefoot dictate shit to me. Shout out to breh tho. He did what he thought was best. Stand there in fear while someone else records.. At least the internet will see it.

The U.S. Army is currently investigating one of their service members who was caught on video harassing and assaulting a Black man as he walked through a South Carolina neighborhood.

In the video, which was originally shared on Facebook, Jonathan Pentland, a 42-year-old drill sergeant who is stationed at Fort Jackson, can be heard telling Deandre to leave his neighborhood. Deandre then told the sergeant not to touch him and Pеntland replied, “What are you going to do?” Hе thеn says, “Lеt’s go, walk away. I’m about to do somеthing to you. You bеttеr start walking right now. … You’rе in thе wrong nеighborhood mothеrfucker. Gеt out.”

Pentland also physically assaulted the man by slapping his hand so hard that his cellphone fell and cracked. Deandre says he was also pushed, but Pentland is denying those claims.

The Army soldier has now been arrested and charged for the incident. “According to Richland County court records, Jonathan Pentland — the person seen in a video berating a Black man in his neighborhood — has been charged today with 3rd degree assault and battery by @RCSD,” tweeted AP reporter Meg Kinnard.
