We’ve seen plenty of videos of the Tomb of The Unknown Honor Guards using loud, stern voices to quiet down disrespectful spectators or make a sound with the butts of their rifles to get people back behind the railing. We’ve never seen what happens if that doesn’t work, however, as people always get whipped right back into shape.
This time, the perpetrator did everything on purpose, complete with pushing the envelope as far as he could. Following the Guard in a mocking fashion, he then stood in front of his face when the Guard stopped, trying to solicit any sort of reaction.
That didn’t seem to work, so the guy actually laid his arm on the soldier’s shoulder, promptly receiving the business end of a rifle pointed directly at him. He backed off as you can imagine, but the laughter from his friends and himself is truly infuriating.
