    Army Veteran Kawasaki Crushed By Criminal

    Thought my fellow Autopians would find this of interest.
    When I watched this, All emotion came thru my body from heartache (my heart also sank), Also 4 Letter words & other Expletives, and then to tears in my eyes. Thank You Kawasaki!!
    And Especially, THANK YOU ARMY VETERAN BRENDEN JENKINS!!!!!

    Combat vet on motorcycle who fought off police chase suspect gets new wheels | Fox News

    All apologies and sorry if link not right or uploading I`m new to this. Just trying to give more info/video of a beautiful human. Worst case scenario please look it up.

    Jenkins, a combat veteran, fought back until police arrived on the scene.
    "One minute this dude is trying to rip me off my bike and I`m trying to fight him," Jenkins said. "And then I see two cops pull up and draw their firearms."
    The fistfight with Jenkins didn`t slow the suspect down. The man jumped back into the truck and ran over the vet`s GSX 600 motorcycle.
    The suspect continued to lead police on a chase for another half-hour before officers caused the truck to crash. The suspect is being treated at a hospital. Police say he is facing multiple charges.
    Jenkins said he`s lucky he wasn`t injured. At one point, he even told himself to let the bike go.
    "Just take a step back, let them take it," he said. "You can replace your vehicle, you can`t replace your life."
    His bike was badly damaged. The veteran told KNXV that this bike was special to him because he bought it after his tour in Afghanistan.
    "It`s kind of been my baby," Jenkins said. "It was kind of the last piece of my deployment that I spent my money on."
    The community rallied behind the Army veteran, and on Saturday he learned that Kawasaki will be giving him a brand-new motorcycle.
    CNN`s George Montgomery, Daniel Lewis and Dave Alsup contributed to the report.

    Awesome. Kudos to him for not backing down to scum and to Kawasaki for recognizing his bravery. (BTW, I saw that video clip).
