We're not lost, Sergeant, We're in … France

Did you get the bad men?

On vacation in Florida, Army SSG Eddie Peoples walked in on a bank robbery in Sarasota, Florida.

Since the bank robber waved the gun at his children, Peoples followed the man outside and used his rental van to block in the bank robber’s car (what fool parks the getaway car such that he has to back out of his parking spot?)

SSG Peoples has had many guns pointed at him during four deployments overseas (3 to Iraq and one to Afghanistan), so when the robber hopped out and pointed his gun at Peoples, it was a minor annoyance. Peoples dealt with “bad men” on deployment every day, so he used his training and disarmed the man, holding him until the police could arrive.

Was Peoples Airborne or Special Forces or a Navy SEAL? Nope. He’s just a regular soldier with the 14th Transportation Battalion in Vincenza, Italy, but he is someone you should know.

The gun ended up being a replica, but no one knew that until after he was disarmed.

Bill Warner thinks SSG Peoples looks like LL Cool J and I’d have to agree. You can also see the rap sheet of the bank robber on Warner’s blog and it becomes clear what kind of fool he is. Yes, Eddie Peoples got the bad man.

Yes SSG Eddie Peoples you are a major example to your friends and family. Just after you stopped a bank robber, you decided that having a family wasn’t enough. You attended the Faces of Strength Conference in Washington D.C. and decided to have an affair and sleep with other women while you were there. That wasn’t good enough though, while attending Senior Leader’s Course at Fort Lee, you lied to your wife and stated that you had no way to contact her while you continued your affair. Now you have kicked your wife of 12 years and your four children out of the house in Italy and sent them on a one-way trip to Florida so that you can shack up with your Italian girlfriend. Way to go SSG Peoples! You are a real hero and role model! “Dad did you get the bad man?” “No I didn’t son because you’re looking at. him”
