The U.S Army has finally arrested Jonathan Pentland, a first class U.S Army Sergeant who was seen in a viral video harassing a black teenage boy in his neighborhood. The 42-year-old Pentland is based at Fort Jackson in Columbia, SC was charged with a third degree assault.
The sergeant broke the boy's cellphone and asked him to leave the neighborhood furiously. He keeps telling the black guy to get out, walk away, he's in the wrong neighborhood but not once does this bully walk away from the confrontation. This is how white supremacy & entitlement work. He thinks he is entitled to be there but the black man is not.
There are several things that got me angry about this video that has gone viral, the wife of Jonathan Pentland who should have tried to make peace between her husband and the teenager was heard in the background of the video encouraging her husband.
WATCH VIDEO :
Jonathan Pentland's wife encouraged every bit of the harassment even though she seems to be a mom, the woman had no sympathy for that teenage boy who was already frightened by her husband. Look at the kid's eyes he is afraid but trying to also stand up for himself.
