Viral Video

The 3-minute viral video does not show what led up to the moment Pentland confronted the young Black male on a sidewalk in his Columbia neighborhood.

It starts with Pentland telling Deandre, “go away right now.” Deandre tells Pentland to call the police and Pentland’s wife, Cassie Pentland, tells him they’ve already been reached. The couple can be heard telling Deandre he was “picking fights” with people in the neighborhood.

Pentland then asks him, “What is it that you are doing here?” He replies, “Walking.” Pentland then says, “Then walk.” Deandre can be heard saying he is walking back to his house, and Pentland’s wife cuts in and say, “Well, you’ve been here like 15 minutes now,” and both Pentlands then tell him to keep walking.

“Walk away,” Pentland says. “Walk away right now. Do you need help? I’m happy to help.” Pentland then denies hitting Deandre.

“There’s a difference between pushing you…,” Pentland can be heard saying. He then tells him he is “aggressing on the neighborhood,” and then as Deandre begins walking down the sidewalk, Pentland violently shoves him in the shoulder, lifting him off his feet.

The Army sergeant first class then says, “You better walk away,” and then yells, “You walk away. You’re talking to my wife right now.”

Pentland says, “You either walk away, or I’m going to carry your a** out of here.” Deandre tells Pentland not to touch him, and Pentland says, “What are you going to do?” He then says, “Let’s go, walk away.

I’m about to do something for you. You better start walking right now. … You’re in the wrong neighborhood, mother*****. Get out.”

  • The video was filmed by a young woman by the name of Shadae. Angry Staffer forwarded the video to the Commanding General (e.g., the man at the top) at Ft. Jackson, Milford Beagle, Jr., who is now investigating the incident.

    After the events on the video, Pentland continued harassing Deandre (the young man in the video) and slapped his phone out of his hand cracking the screen, based on a statement given by Shirell Johnson. Ms. Johnson and her friend, Vinnetta, were walking through the area and helped Deandre get out of the situation safely. Ms. Johnson’s statement can be read on Twitter at @Angry_Staffer. The police had charged Pentland with destruction of property for breaking Deandre’s phone, but since receiving more information the Richland County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) has begun an investigation into the incident. Let’s hope Deandre – who had done nothing wrong and does indeed live in the neighborhood in question – gets some proper justice out of all of this.

    Huge props to Shirell Johnson and her friend Vinetta for helping Deandre, to Shadae for having the presence of mind to video the harassment/assault, to Angry Staffer for tweeting the information and video to the world and forwarding them to CG Beagle, Jr., to CG Beagle, Jr. for investigating the incident, and especially huge props to Deandre, who kept a cool head and acted maturely throughout his ordeal. Nicely done, all of you. The only ones who acted like absolute @$$holes were Pentland and his wife. Such a deeply shameful act by a small and disgusting man, who was supported in his harassment/assault by his equally disgusting wife, who stood to the side and called out disrespectful comments. I sincerely hope Pentland receives appropriate sanctions by the US Army and the RCSD.
