Murderer gets 4 1/2 years for killing handcuffed prisoner.

In a plea bargain. Actually the Court Martial handed him 12 years.
I know people who got more time for passing a no-funds check.
The Army M.P. which in my book stands for Murdering Pus… errr punk…said he “knew it was wrong” then blamed the victim.
Yep. He had heard about a chaplain, who unlike a Prisoner IS a combatant… was killed by an IED. Which itself might have been more Army Bullshit, the Air Force dumped hundred ton after hundred ton of explosive devices all over Afghanistan.
It could as easily have been a case of long-delayed “friendly fire” and we’d never know from the Army accounts. Yeah, they DO lie through their teeth.
Anyway, Pig Boy, who like every other Prison Guard in the world took the job because it affords him access to helpless prisoners to abuse and get sexually aroused so he and his fellow Pigs could stand around spanking each others tiny little monkeys…
Said that the victim made him do it. By being vaguely of the same ethnicity as whoever was reported to have placed the alleged IED.
So the Court Martial, like ALL Judges, did what Pigs normally do, they gave their Fellow Pig the best deal they could hand him under the circumstances. This Farce Martial, the other side of Kangaroo Kourt lynch law, Pigs literally get away with Murder, took place on Ft Carson.
I’m not naming the Pig because I personally believe he sold his soul to get his power-trip on, just like every other PIG.
But, don’t y’all worry none, all y’all Back the Badge Morons, he’s in Federal custody so he and his Mom will have conjugal visits soon.

‘Call us when WE behead somebody’ …again.

So, what happens when we do WORSE than behead somebody? Say, for instance, gut-shoot a third-world person knowing full well that the only place in town which can treat an abdominal wound is a hospital associated with whatever torture regime we’re propping up, or a US Military Hospital who will patch the dude up and then turn him over to somebody like the Saigon Torture Regime? Which is what these rifles were designed for doing. Not for a humane quick kill.

The AR series, including the most infamous of all the M16A1 and its assorted A numbers derived therefrom, was designed specifically to gut-shoot. The bullet-barrel-powder combination was ordered so that it would cause massive rips inside the intestines with a very small entry wound. Until Dr Joseph Lister discovered a way to use antiseptic surgical techniques, a gut wound was an automatic death sentence. A slow, painful one that could last days. The theory behind the AR series is that in Third World countries, the Guerrilla Theater, (guerrilla is the Spanish word for “little war” not the fighter therein, A common misuse of the word) the fighters with a comrade so afflicted had a very few nasty choices. Take their wounded comrade with them, slowing them down so the Army would have an easier time capturing or exterminating them, killing him, or leaving him to be captured and his life saved long enough to be turned over to the Torture Regime.

We had a candidate for president in the last election, an Admiral’s Kid naviy pilot who was most famous for being a screwup, protected by his daddy’s rank.

Wrecked his third Very Expensive U.S. killer aircraft and the DRVN government took him prisoner. Technically, what he and his fellow pirates err Pilots were doing was an act of terrorism, not a war crime per se because nobody from either the Hanoi government, the Saigon government or the U.S. government had ever formally declared war. It was on the level of 9/11 only using more planes and the killers, instead of dying to accomplish their deeds, would fly back to their carriers or their bases in Thailand or Singapore, neither of which had ever declared war, have a steak dinner, get drunk at the O club and congratulate each other on what brave pirates err Pilots they were. The DRVN claimed to have shot him down, but with his flight record the notion that they were exaggerating sounds plausible.

He was given Prisoner Of War Status. The Viet Minh “cong” soldiers were not given such status. McCain bitches a whole lot about the treatment he received as a prisoner, but never once mentions that the prisoners in South VietNam were treated even worse. By the same legal traditions and conditions the U.S. Puppet government in Saigon used, the DRVN could have just as easily executed them as terrorists. Saigon did it routinely, with the help of the U.S.

The U.S. Army said they didn’t torture prisoners, which is bullshit, but let’s go with their Official Position. They merely turned them over to the ARVN forces who tortured and executed them.

The DRVN might not have had pure motives in declaring the Non-War criminals like McCain to be POWs. Probably didn’t. The double and treble and quadruple standards exercised in that non-“war” war were rife on all sides, The U.S. hasn’t had a pure, unbroken record for treating prisoners humanely, the term “Concentration Camp” was invented for US POW camps in the Spanish-American war. Just an observation.

So, yeah. Call me when WE behead somebody.
