I was present in the parking lot and he was never at Wendy's unless this happened after he was in the back of the cop car. Such a bad situation and only made worse if the story isn't correctly told. :(

Why was a cop trying to unlock a car?

Don't they have better things to do like chase down people breaking the law?

Yes he was in Iraq and was also severely injured while on duty there. He was a great athlete at Rockmart and a super nice young man as well. Very sad to see him like this.

I was in southeast asia and wounded in Nam in 1970.Stop giving all these hoodlums a pass just because they were over seas.When we came back we didnt kill anybody or jump on any cops.You are supposed to be able to look up to a veteran,not dodge his left hook.If they have problem they are offered free evaluation and care before they are mustered out.
AMEN!

We were spit on and called murderers when we came back and expected to fit in with society. Now days they just pamper them and everybody feels sorry for them because they had to go spend some time in the sand.

Yeah it screws with your head, but you should have expected that going in! What did you think was going to happen to you?

I am sorry for those things happening to you and the person above. I don't think the people that come back now are pampered, nor do I think it's an excuse. I think we need better programs in place to help military adjust. It screws with some peoples head worse than others. Such a shame.

I guess it does not matter that he attacked a police officer to some of you on here. The police were called because an elderly female locked her keys in the car and there were animals inside. When Police are called they can not pick and choose to go or not. By the way it was a woman officer attacked before she could even get out of the car. What a man.

I heard that angel dust and pcp are back in the Rockmart area and that he was on one or the other.
I was in the 1st National Bank today and was looking at all the photos of our soldiers past and present.there is one of this man there also.I didn't know he had been a soldier until then.Sad.
