    Stolen Valor “Ranger” meets actual Ranger. Does not fare well

    A man wearing a US Army Ranger uniform with an impressive set of badges was spotted at a Pennsylvania shopping mall by an actual US Ranger. A number of things about the guy’s outfit didn’t look right and he was confronted in a very public way.
    Ryan Berk, an Army Ranger and Purple Heart recipient, spotted a man, Sean Yetman, wearing an Army Ranger uniform.

    (shortened to comply with copyright rules)

    The phrase “money, property or other tangible benefit” could include anything as minor as a free cheeseburger from Ruby Tuesdays intended for our soldiers. And while it may sound petty and vindictive, all it would take is a judge and / or prosecutor who is a veteran or is particularly sympathetic to them and they could just throw the book at him for a couple of years in the slammer. (And yes, you may call me petty and vindictive in this case.)



    People going around claiming the status of heroes, wearing the uniforms and badges of honor granted only to those who served our nation with distinction, while having either never served or not having been awarded those honors are among the lowest types of cretins.

    This fat tub should be jailed.

    It should be a jailable and finable offense.

    Then he should be sentenced to report to the nearest military base to scrub toilets for REAL heros.

    At least this loser wasn't wearing a fake Medal of Honor.

    Gotta confess, i'm not completely convinced.

    The guy in uniform sounded like he knew what he was talking about to me. (although he was a bit plump...)


    Need a third opinion....

    It would have been very simple for the guy to confirm that he was who he claimed to be.
    Whether active duty or reservist he would have on his person a picture ID. If retired he would also have a picture ID.

    You either know how to wear a uniform or you do not.

    As anyone who's been through basic training knows.

    My verdict: this guy did not and I'm glad he was called out.

    Hopefully he was humiliated by the experience, but being a scumbag imposter, he probably was not.
    Thanks from grinder and justagurlinseattle

    Yetman is a complete scum bag...

    Bucks County man who impersonated an Army Ranger convicted of pretending to be cop - The Morning Call
    The now 30-year-old Sean Yetman was arrested while wearing the coat of a Philadelphia officer who died in the line of duty. He pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court in May of that year to impersonating a public servant, a second-degree misdemeanor. He was sentenced to three months of probation for that crime along with a summary offense of driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to online court records.

    Yetman was arrested after being stopped on North Main Street in Doylestown during a routine traffic safety checkpoint while wearing the coat and displaying a Philadelphia police badge, according to court records obtained by Calkins Media. Both items belonged to the late Robert Hays, who was killed in the line of duty in 1995, the Philadelphia Police Department confirmed.

    Yetman told the Doylestown officers that he worked out of the city's 26th District in Fishtown, but then added that he was in the police academy and working in the 26th as a drive-along, court documents show. The police coat, he said, belonged to his uncle.

    He was unable to produce a valid driver’s license or any other identification to verify that he was a Philadelphia police officer, Doylestown officers said.
    scumbag

    I'll give you a 3rd opinion. I was stationed at hunter army airfield in savannah ga, 1st battalion 75th ranger regiment.

    Fat boy ain't no ranger.
