The army drill sergeant who was recently charged for shoving a black man has now fled his home after a group of BLM rioters rallied outside of his residence.
Local media outlets showed the exact moment when the army drill sergeant fled his family’s residential home, right after a massive group comprising of BLM demonstrators gathered on the outside. The incident took place in light of the outrage sparked against the officer who brutally shoved a black man for standing in his neighborhood.
The drill sergeant from the army was identified as 42-year-old Jonathan Pentland, known for his rather aggressive confrontation with a man of color with the incident taking place in the vicinity of Richland County in South Carolina.
Meanwhile, the video of his confrontation went viral instantly on Monday, with many people coming to the black man’s defense. In that particular three-minute clip, you can clearly see the officer scream at the black man on several occasions. Next, the man who is identified as Deandre was told to ‘go away now,’ right before he gets brutally pushed by the officer.
In addition, viewers get a glimpse of the sergeant’s wife who can be heard in the background yelling at the man of color.
In response to the shocking and bizarre incident, a group of Black Lives Matter Movement protesters gathered outside his residence on Wednesday to show their support of the black man who was shoved. That is the same day that Pentland received charges for the assault, as confirmed by the area’s county sheriff.
Therefore, Pentland was immediately suspended from his duties, following the pending investigation.During the early hours of Thursday, Pentland was seen fleeing far away from his house.
On that note, a spokesperson for the County Sheriff Department mentioned how he had not been relocated, confirming how they had no clue about his whereabouts too.
