Thank you @WUTangKids for bringing this tweet to my attention, thank you @Angry_Staffer for sharing this, and thank you @fortjacksoncg for addressing this publicly. Jonathan Pentland is a menace to society, he should be dishonorably discharged and arrested for assault.
This is by no means condoned by any service member. We will get to the bottom of this ASAP.

The sergeant would not actually let him walk away even as he demanded it. He kept stalking the man. Every time the young man moved away he would crowd him again. If anyone was threatened it was the black man. We see that clearly.
