    The white guy shouldn’t have pushed him, but the black guy should also be charged with harassment and attempted abduction. Guess the world is so messed up people don’t know what equality and justice are.

    Fake news like always

  5. Dee Crown on September 7, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    How is he a bully…if he doesnt live there….even the dumb reporter said this man has been doing other things in that neighborhood….what happened to reporters investigating…this is nonsense…just because someone in a position of authority tells u something u believe it….this is crazy…you should be ashamed…even the cohost questioned you….and to the " witness" she was so scared of her neighbor why does she live there….if she is so scared…south central is scary so i moved lol

    More lies

  9. ScottFromNH on September 7, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Fortifying the "Truth" again huh ABC…

    🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨In the comments you’ll see people saying that this young man had been harassing women and has been arrested for it. But, when asked for PROOF, they can’t produce it because it’s a lie. The same lie that got Emmett Till murdered.

    One trash bag in the comment said,” Emmett Till got what he deserved”.
    Let that vile demonic comment sit with you while you read the comment thread so that you’ll understand the type of subhumans we share the world with.

    Johnny walked his pretty bald hit right into the slammer…I really hope the army kicked him out, we don’t need trash like this representing us

    why don’t you be more responsible and fair and not throw gasoline onto the fire where the consequences to society and people are real

  14. Dee Crown on September 7, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    How donu know this is racially inclined….he is a soldier he never said anything racial….

  15. W790 Brown on September 7, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Theirs a difference between being arrested and being charged. Their is only one person on the wrong side of the law and its NOT the young black man

  16. Blunder Buzzer on September 7, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Who gives a fuck he was black

  17. Jake Brunette on September 7, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Imagine facing charges just for that

  18. Tycondaroga100 on September 7, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Military career = over.

  19. MarvelousMusic on September 7, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    You pretend to be cops and act like you have authority because it’s your neighborhood, end up in jail

  20. Corey Edwards Outdoors on September 7, 2021 at 8:58 pm

  22. Rose Sutton on September 7, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    ALLEGED victim????? Um….we saw the assault. 😑

  23. Rey Tech49 on September 7, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    That soldier should have pulled his assault rifle and shoot at the people who did stuff to his home

  24. A Sanchez on September 7, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    The White guy is a HERO! He defended and protected women attacked by the black guy!!!!!

  25. deer down on September 7, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Funny how the MSM left our the fact that that kid was accused of raping someones daughter in the neighborhood and kept coming back!!!! I guess that’s ok though..incredible

  26. A Sanchez on September 7, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Stop lying you disgusting gma! The black guy was harassing women! The White guy protected the women! The black guy wasn’t just walking thru the neighborhood! Liars! People don’t listen to them. Our local news reported the truth.

  27. Michele Griffiths on September 7, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    This wife should have been changed also

  28. Jay T AKA Jeremiah Tisdale on September 7, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Im glad that the kid had a high level of emotional strength, I don’t know what kind of things i would of done to that asshole if he literally harassed me saying the kind of things he did in my own damn neighborhood.

    What a crappy officer!! We talk crap about the Taliban but we have people like this in our country doing the same to our own! Doesn’t matter the issue that’s wrong!

  31. Amalek Killer on September 7, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    A racist white man, not a soldier, I see no one wearing an uniform.

  33. Cowboy Patriot on September 7, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    The liberal tarded news outlets always jump to conclusions even before they know the truth of the whole story . The reason the sergeant was yelling at the black guy is because a girl asked him for help , the black guy had verbally sexually assaulted her and here’s a fun fact for you , he had been arrested before for sexual assault on the same girl . liberal news outlets LOVE storys like this because it fans the flames of racism . The liberal news outlets will never report on what really happened here and why (even after finding out the truth) because it doesn’t fit their narrative .

  34. Moonnu Chamling on September 7, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    This is too much. Where is the full story or the video which lead soldier to push the man? I don’t think the soldier pushed him for nothing or due to racism. Because the newsthe truth came out to be soldier was just protecting the victim girl who was harassed by this young man. Everytime why the incident between white and black individuals are automatically shown as Racist act by White person? The news reporter himself told that there was two incidents prior to this incident. But he didn’t tell that man was stalking and harassing a girl so, he was just protecting the victim. The reporter should report the fact not the story which fits their narrative. Its really sad that heros are protrayed as villianscriminals and Criminals are protrayed as Victimsa heros. And some clout chasers just want to make viral video by recording half story trying to deceive the world with intention to be called hero herselfhimself. This is too much racism going on U.S. Its really Sad. The soldier and the girl shouldve recorded their own video to tell their side of story. May this racism end and we all peopleraces live together happily in harmony and peace. May truth previal and justice be served✌️💝✝️

    Come to my igloo in Alaska and I’ll push you off my iceberg

  36. gremlinuk1968 on September 7, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    What if it was a white guy in a black neighbourhood,? Would you see that on the news,,?

  37. A Sanchez on September 7, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Im aick and tired of you pathetic gma attacking“White” men but Black men and women in NYC attack Asians and you have nothing to say! You are disgusting! Show blm and Antifa burning down buildings in Portland! Show blacka attacking white older women in NYC. No of course you won’t 🖕🏽

  38. Jason Madruga on September 7, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    You know what matters GMA, you’re fucking racially charged bullshit *news*

  39. Matshadi on September 7, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Is THAT her hair???? Like growing out of her scalp??? Because I’m completely in love with it!

  40. Chris Carroll on September 7, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    That is a hate crime, and Trump gave the white supremacists permission to get away with it by not saying anything negative about them.

  41. Jason Madruga on September 7, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    If this was "racially charged" despite him not mentioning the black persons skin at any time, then the 13/52 stats or 13/90 stats that include more than a petty shove but include murder, rape, and felonious assault should get equal or proportionate coverage.

  42. clifton moore on September 7, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    You see how the Court System defends this white supremacist, by considering the racist said he was only trying to defending his family agaist someone whose doing nothing but just walking down the street minding his own black business??? This is what this system is set up to do. Defend white folks from black folks. Even tho blacks are doing nothing to them. Would it be Justfied if I am walking down the street with my daughter and attack a whiteman for no reason at all, other then i just dont like white folks and just say I was protecting my daughter from the whiteman? Really????

  43. Rey Tech49 on September 7, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Of course you liberals will make it about race. But when it’s black people attacking white people you won’t report anything

  44. ztwntyn8 on September 7, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Where I am if a white man walks through the wrong black hood by himself he is beat and robbed and the police tell them they shouldn’t go there… same shit but worse. This isn’t shit.

  45. Jake Brunette on September 7, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    This is so stupid I already know the black person had to do something make it this man mad they always try to make it look like us white people are the bad ones

  46. William Shaw on September 7, 2021 at 9:26 pm

  47. miguel angel perez on September 7, 2021 at 9:29 pm
