Thank you guys for all this info, as a currently deployed infantryman in Afghanistan this kind of **** SICKENS me. Especially after lookin further into those posted URLs to find he added me as a friend on Facebook. But his run will be over, I have turned all that info and this into the legal section of my unit, and they are pushing it up to have him brought up on charges under the Stolen Valor Act.
Gil, Darkson I'm right with ya guys, I may be a flyboy but I have a certain appreciation for the ground pounders. Gil, stay safe dude, my bros from homestation are watching over you! As for Snakeeyes... well lets just say I didn't think he was on the level but I didn't know he was that bad... thanks mandosoldier for posting that info, after diving into the link and the associated links with it I'm rather upset that I didn't catch a lot of that stuff before hand.
Been trolling the Steve Jordan Page at Facebook...
While the act of what is being protrayed is pretty sad... I'm not completely convinced that it is the 'original Snake Eyes' running it. I've got a feeling that someone has grabbed all his old **** and is doing this for.... well, not real sure what the intent is other than pissing us off. I cant say for certain... just a thought.
Don't get me wrong... I think the idiot Did run around and portray being a soldier, in more than simple COSPLAY, I just dont think the new batch of 'him' is the original.
Got a bunch of buddies running back and forth on the page and tracking various bits of information down.
Issue with the Stolen Valor Act is the fact that it was found unconstitutional, due to violation of Free Speech. I thought they were going to review it in October but quite frankly havent looked into it much... Have better things to do with limited connectivity here in Afgh.
yeah the large part of what if going on thru FB etc.... is a troll, but in the beginning and on the other pages, it is most definitely him. The original ran and hid once he began his hero talk and some infantrymen succeeded in getting hold of his name,address, phone number, and social security number. Since then real tidbits from the original have popped up, including some video of the man himself, ummmm handling himself. In all he's a huge failure as a human being.
Now I'm not standing up for him but stated by mando soldier that a few infantrymen got a hold of his SS number is not only excessive it's also criminal infact its aggrivated identity theft which is a felony. He is committing criminal impersonation but at most he'd get is misdameanor I don't necessarily agree with people harassing other people because honestly if you want him out tell him to get out the is obviously suffering from some personality disorder why beat a dead horse.
^ Given the statements, on the FB thread, of one individual who has his identity. The only thing he is using it for is reporting Snake's activities. Again, you'd have to believe that the individual that is posting is the real/original Sanek eyes/Steve Jordan.
I disagree that getting his SSN is criminal as you can find that all over the net as well as submit *FOUO request for it.... the criminality comes from how you use it.
However, given this post, I can guarentee I am not on every wep page / forum that is discussing the situation so I cant validate that the people, referenced by mando, do not have any criminal activity in mind.
** FOIA not FOUO: Meant "Freedom of information act"... not "For Official Use Only".
Totally see what your saying but merely just having SSN is a crime maybe not identity theft you physically have to use the number to steal goods or money, but it is unlawful possession of ID number its just not moral to stalk this snake eyes guy even if he is the biggest toolbag I'd say eff him karma always comes back to bite you in the arse. He will get his in time. Trust me you can't really take legal action over the Internet unless you have hard evidence and the crimes someone is committing is on a federal level. Technically if someone questioned him on impersonating military he can lie and say he was using it as a costume and they can't do anything to him
Criminal action or not it definately affects my opinion of the individual. That being said, certain things like our service numbers are NOT considered protected information, and are available thorugh the FOIA. Currently, the military is in the process of switching our service numbers to a random number and not our social with a few letters added in. That's probably how they got the information and in using it to reference his actual or alleged military career it's legal as long as they're members of one of several watchdog organizations or currently active/guard/reserve. For example, as an officer I can access PII (personally identifying information) on any of the troops in my unit. That information is protected and FOUO in nature. If I were to use that information for anything other than official business I'd be in BIG trouble. I personally don't want people out there running around with my social security number tho, just me.
Hell, in the Army even my NCOs and EMs have access to that data. But again... it is how it is used not just the possession of.
But as far as the "Snake Eyes" **** going around now, on the web. I'm still not convinced it is him but rather someone else who has his old pictures... drudged up some old posts and is running around and pissing people off with the posts. there is nothing NEW being posted and any of the pics that are being used now can be traced back a few years in older posts on other sites.
either way, if the guy is truly in hiding...so be it....if he isn't and he still wants to continue the charade he will endure the repercussions. I haven't spent 8 years in the infantry to see some of my best friends killed to have this guy say he's "lost friends in the sandbox too".... if it is some sick troll continuing as him, he is just as ridiculous. But I have recently seen this guy at a Con, while I was home on leave. Just saw him in the crowd but none the less...if I see him again he will not enjoy the meeting.
I have a strong feeling you are not alone in those thoughts and can only imagine the influx of soldiers at local cons... if only to search him out. Only time will tell.
Been doing the Army thing for 16yrs, so far, and can say I've seen a few things that struck me as idiotic.... but he pretty much takes the cake.
Would love to run across him...not to do anything violent or such but to get a feel for what he is really thinking and why. There are obviously mental issues involved. Again, this is predicated on the assumtion that the guy stiring the flames is truely the 'original'.
Yeah I'm not gonna come at the guy with anything that's been posted recently, but let me catch him actually wearing his jacked up uniform and I will be correcting the situation. If not in that I'm more than willing to talk it out to see how he really is, or simply walk on by.
