That has to be a massive disappointment to the racists commenting on the previous article.

FTA: "The person, however, told CBS4 that he had placed his own Toys for Tots bins in the stores and was actually giving the toys to the needy. "

Were the "needy" kids his own?

Translation: We wanted a bump in donations, so we made sure to get an outraged population and media attention to help us out.

So he is affiliated with the Marines but not one himself, yet still dressed as one. How does that work?

Well, that's it for the outrage. At least until people start complaining about how this could ever have happened.

All of duty marines and cops were standing guard outside their childrens grade schools this week. I learned it on facebook and they should all be father of the year.

Why was there a threat? Those cops and marines wanted attention, congrats for giving it to them.

What's the saying, "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

T.M.S.: Overzealous leatherneck.


I don't think he was actually a Marine... I guess that would make him a Pleatherneck

I interpreted the article to say he was a Marine, but not an 'official' Toys for Tots collector.... and he is now.

also the commenter, Nate Higgers seems like a really outstanding sort of chap... top shelf.

Nope, it isn't. Anything that stokes their confirmation bias...they run with it. Anything that counters it...they ignore. Need proof? Look at how dead this thread is.
