[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the middle of rioting and looting in Baltimore on Monday night, one man stood between violent rioters and a long line of police officers.
Vietnam veteran Robert Valentine stood firmly and strongly in the middle of a street, shouting at the young vandals to leave the area and go home to their families.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=””]
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]When asked by CNN on Anderson Cooper 360 about whether Mr. Valentine was concerned about his personal safety, he replied, “I did thirty years, okay. I came out a Master Sergeant. I’ve seen more than all this. I’ve been through the riots, okay,” he began.
“This right here is not relevant. They need to have their butts at home,” he continued. “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’s not really about nothing,” he urged.
Mr. Valentine said that the Baltimore rioters were disrespecting the death of Freddie Gray.
