BALTIMORE VOICES: 'I'm just a soldier'
During the heat of the riots, one man stepped up and directed an order to the looters: Go home!
Robert Valentine, a local resident and Vietnam veteran, told CNN's Joe Johns that he was not intimated about entering the chaos and telling the rioters to go away.
"They need to have their butts at home, they need to be in their home units, with their families, studying, and doing something with their life," he said.
There were bottles and rocks flying. Why would Valentine risk his safety to try to reach the rioters?
"I'm just a soldier," he said.
