Charlie Blackmore, Wisconsin Marine Corps Veteran, Draws Gun On Suspect In Beating (VIDEO)

“First of all, the article didn't call him an "Ex-Marine". They referred to him as a Marine Corps Veteran ("Retired" From the Marine Corps). How that came to be....He fulfilled his Service Obligation.

He was on his way to work when he saw the beating. They didn't mention his occupation in the article. Not sure how you came up with "freelance bounty hunter". I guess, in your mind, someone who tries to stop another from being beat up automatically becomes a bounty hunter.

Not sure where your attitude comes from, but I'm sure it's legitimate to you.
Just not to the rest of us who think he did the right thing, including the victim, I'm sure.”

“No, he didn't need a gun to call 911, but he stopped the man from injuring the woman even more, and may have saved her life since the man was kicking her in the head. Who knows how much more she would have been injured before the police arrived....would like to know how long it took for them to get there.”

“And then the employees could get rid of the miserable, greedy Executives who give themselves pay raises and contribute nothing except mismanaging a once thriving company....sounds like a plan!!! And, get a hearing aid...Obama never said that....he was trying to make a point about cooperative efforts contributed by many that are responsible for success, and you apparently missed it!”

“If you would read more about it, you would find that Hostess filed for bankruptcy before and the employees made concessions to keep the Company going. Then the Executives running the Company gave themselves huge pay raises and unilaterally quit paying into the employees pension fund, and now Management wants the employees to give up another 8% of their salary. Gross Mismanagement and Corporate Greed and Arrogance is what is causing this Company to fail. Mr. Rayburn is an terrible CEO!!! Go ahead and hate Unions if that makes you feel better, but please direct some of that rath toward the very deserving Management of Hostess.”

jspbeef on Nov 17, 2012 at 17:02:30

“The blame can be spread around, just like at GM. Why not make an investment in Hostess to save those jobs and prop up the pensions, like we did with GM? I have watched Unions operate for many years and they are not a workers salvation.”

“Wow....do you hear yourself? I feel sorry for your family....you've already given up. I would check that attitude and start thinking more about what "you" can do to contribute positively to your "grind" as you call it....bet your kids would be sad to hear you say that. Quit feeling sorry for yourself and take your "lifetime vow" more seriously....last I looked, there was nothing about a five year renewal in it. You need to start talking to someone who understands what it takes to stay together and make it work!!! You sound angry and defeated. Quit thinking about yourself so much and start thinking more about your kids!!!”

“He probably is talking about the people who wouldn't vote for him, but I think that base probably now includes a lot of people who might have voted for him before 2008 happened, and have now become part of a community that had the rug ripped out from under them because of what Wall Street and the Banking Community and Big Business Outsourcing did to the Middle Class. I am also looking specifically at Republican Congressmen who proposed changing legislation that took away safeguards that allowed 2008 to happen. Shame on all of them! And Shame on the Republican Party, in general, for the disdain they exhibit toward the people most affected by what happened. People with degrees working at Target aren't lazy...they just want Corporations to step and bring their jobs back to this Country. I suppose that's too much to ask!!!”

“Just to let you know, I chose the name when commenting on the Banks and Wall Street and how they are "stealing" from everyone "legally?" and no one is going to jail....instead they are being bailed out by tax payers and continuing as if they have done nothing wrong. What they have done to everyone is a much greater crime than illegals crossing the border. And, just so you know, I wasn't condoning illegals crossing the boarder. I was commenting on what seemed to be your lack of compassion toward workers that you don't know for sure are illegal. If they are, then the Subcontractors for Walmart supplying the workers are breaking the law, and should be dealt with accordingly. Please let's be "fair" and send "everyone" who breaks the law to jail.....which includes Bankers and Wall Street Executives as well. As you know, that's not really happening, so, yes, I'm disillusioned, but I also have to be hopeful about the future. Otherwise, there's no point in continuing.”

“I can see you consider yourself clever. I would also hope that as a "Real American", you would also have more compassion for others who are being treated unfairly, legal or illegal.”

“Hmm, disillusionedyethopeful.....What part of 'Illegal' are you most 'disillusioned' about? If you go out and commit a crime; do you expect to be punished; get away with it; or, just beg for 'compassion' from the Judge & Jury? If immigrants come to this country; (believe it or not), there are laws and specific steps that are required for citizenship! What a Shocker, huh? You don't give Illegals a free education; free medical care; welfare; a driver's license; or, the right to vote in our elections just because they managed to invade our borders! You are 'disillusioned'...and, you can also forget about being hopeful! When people/countries make the same mistakes over and over again; you probably honestly believe you can expect a 'different' outcome! DUH?”

“OK, I won't be nasty...but I can still be angry....angry at what Banks and Wall Street have done to our economy. Can you dispute that they didn't make horrible and greedy "business decisions" that put us in the toilet? Can you dispute that Congress gave them the power to make this perfect storm possible? And, if the trickle down effect is supposed to work, why isn't all the money that Bush made possible with his "temporary" tax cuts trickling down yet? And, Grover Norquist is a "Terrorist" with his "Pledge". He is holding America "Hostage" and we are all paying for it. No Compromise and No Progress....just "NO" out of every Republican's mouth. That is NOT Democracy.”

“Thank you for not being nasty! Angry is OK, in that I think most citizens of our country are angry, and as long as it doesn't lead to violence, it can act as a means to move things foreard. Just don't let it fester and consume you. Be thankful this is a country where we can express our anger with a ballot, and not a bullet.”

“The banks changed the rules so they could make bonuses for themselves. Borrowers didn't say "will you please change the rules for us?", but they certainly weren't going to say "no" when the carrot was dangled in front of them. Congress was irresponsible with their legislation and removing the safeguards that had been in place for decades, and then Wall Street was even "more" irresponsible with their greed.....a perfect recipe for disaster!”
