"It does not make you tough to hurt these people!" U.S. marine, Shamar Thomas, puts 30 NYPD to shame at Times Square Occupy Wall Street protest -- tells them there is no honor in what they are doing

He tells the NYPD that these are unarmed U.S. civilians, that he was in Iraq 14 months to protect Americans, that this is not a war, they have no guns, there is no honor in hurting unarmed people, that they are supposed to be protecting U.S. citizens.  Finally, the NYPD leave in shame.  As well they should.

From YouTube (over 1 million views and climbing rapidly): 

United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY, went toe to toe with the New York Police Department. An activist in the Occupy Wall Street movement, Thomas voiced his opinions of the NYPD police brutality that had and has been plaguing the #OWS movement.
