Female West Point Cadet Busted With Smart Phone Marching In Formation [VIDEO]
Kids today, geez! Well, this incident has bigger ramifications and reactions than just your average "person/kid looking down at phone" story. Though she has not been identified as of this writing, this West Point cadet has a lot of explaining to do after she was caught on video looking down at her phone while marching in formation to the academy's graduation ceremony. Check the 50-second mark, I'm speechless.
I don't know where to start. I think the only positive point, she stayed in step. And why did it have to be a female? It all goes back to that women driving while putting make-up on stereotype. It irks me to no end. I just thought phones and other devices were forbidden within a military academy, guess not. I actually have a friend, a Staff Sergeant, who is in the Hellcats at West Point, marching drums for the cadets. I can only imagine what he thinks about this or worse, what other active military and veterans have to say. As of this writing, West Point has yet to comment on the incident.
Let me know what you think. Is this the pinnacle of inappropriate behavior?
