An exceptionally violent example of road rage is making the web buzz today, as this footage of an unnamed Marine attacking a car is making the rounds. We should say, right from get go, that the only source of information about what's happening in the video clip seems to be the description attached to it on Live Leak.

Taken somewhere in the area of San Diego County's Camp Pendleton, the footage you see below reportedly shows a Marine sergeant losing his mind after being rear ended by the victims. Reports indicate that the woman filming the incident is a wounded Marine, and that the man driving the truck is her brother and caregiver.

According to the victims, the Marine had been driving erratically; cutting them off and slamming on his brakes in a move that ultimately caused the accident. Considering that likely provocation and the intensity of the reaction of the aggrieved assailant, we're amazed at just how calm and cool the driver in the video is able to remain. The source (and common sense) indicates that the Marine is very likely under some pretty serious emotional stress here, and the reaction we're observing is not unlike that which can occur because of post-traumatic stress disorder. In any case, we're glad to see that everyone came out of the scary incident unscathed. Find the full video below, and know that it has some pretty serious Not Safe For Work language.

      As a former Marine we have a phrase for people just like him. $h!t bird. What a disgrace to my Corp. He'll most likely eventually be Dishonorably Dis or OTH not from this incident but something else stupid, and then post all this stuff on his Facebook about how great of a Marine he is. I see it every single day.

        Sir, thank you for your service, and we need more like you, not pieces of crap like this guy who thinks he owns the world. Sad, isn't it. This is the type of guy who puts the bad rep on vets.

        My thought exactly, I'm a former Marine myself and there is no excuse for how he is acting. PTSD can mess you up no doubt but it doesn't condone his actions in the video, this only furthers peoples beliefs that Marines are an unhinged group of thugs.

      Him being a marine absolutely does NOT excuse his despicable behavior. I don't care what he saw in Iraq or Afghanistan, that is not a convenient excuse to act like a piece of scum.

      That some viewers of this blog attempted to justify this ignorant miscreant's behavior is just proof that people like this simply are incapable of reason even BEFORE they reach this "red zone" stage. So no, getting out to "talk it over" when some human shaped gorilla is kicking your car is not an option. That would require some additional stupidity. Situations like this are best handled by the police. Staying inside the car required some emotional restraint, but that choice is only obvious if you have a modicum of intelligence. Getting arrested for this will probably save his life and maybe someone else's in the future thanks to the counseling he will now have to attend to serve out his sentence.

      That guy needs some serious medical help. If he gets that bent out of shape over a fender bender then imagine what could happen in a much more stressful situation. Someone will be dead. I have a feeling this must be a common occurrence since his wife/gf didn't make much effort to stop him or even calm him down.

      I'm so glad the driver stayed in the car and remained calm! The Marine needs serious help.

      Freakin' loser. What an embarrassing example of the military and a horrible example of a parent...

      Obviously, the marine is having some sort of emotional problems and needs help before he hurts himself or someone else. That is just not normal behavior even after an accident. Very smart of the guy in the car to stay inside.

      How sad, just sad. This man regresses to an almost infantile tantrum; this is not PTSD. This man should receive a reprimand and be sent immediately for counseling (anger management, etc.). His conduct is unbecoming to a marine. Expulsion from the Corps should be an alternative.

      Notice how this tough guy idiot took his "rage" to the next level only when the other marines showed up the hold him back. He is a danger to society. The driver showed courage and class by remaining in his vehicle.

      He reminds me of the two idiots that got out of their car with baseball bats, after I honked at them for snoozing through a green light. I was very lucky that I was coming home from my security job, and I was wearing my gun. One look at the .357 I was carrying made them become slightly sane and take off. They called 911 and claimed I was pointing my gun at them "for no reason", but if they hadn't gotten out of their car with the bats, then: How did I know they had them? How did I know what colors the bats were? The cops let them fill out reports and then busted them for filing a false police report after I told them the above info. As they were being cuffed up, one of the morons, the driver, still didn't understand why he was being arrested. The other one called him "f'in idiot!" as they closed the doors on them. They ended up pleading guilty and got a $300 fine.

      I hope this fellow Marine gets help before it's too late. We are taught not to lose our cool in stressful situation but dude fail. I understand his frustration but that's not how to deal with it.
