  1. First, they named him Track. Bizarre. But this dude is giving vets a black eye, when the issue is clearly parenting. He called the officers ‘peasants”. That is not a military issue, that is a home environment issue.
    So when Sarah blames his military service for her sons behavior, I think she needs to look in the mirror.
    PEASANTS ? I’ve heard cops called a lot of names, but this one has something elitist behind it.
