Disturbing legal military case.....

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Wed Jun 19, 2019 11:54 am

I don't know what to think about this.

Whatever the ultimate truth that comes out, there are going to be not-good-things exposed.

Basing my opinion on the information provided, he is innocent. If you disagree, show me facts and reason to change my mind.

So, so many so-called "war crimes" that are BS....IMO, war-fighters should be given the benefit of the doubt. Instead, our SOFA seemingly gives the foreign country the right to charge and prosecute our guys.

I am also thinking he is innocent. That is good - to think that one individual is not an over-aggressive soldier and undesirable person in the military.

But.....if all the soldiers in his command were willing to watch in up as revenge 'because he took them closer to combat than they wanted' then that is really depressing, because that doesn't mean there is one overly-aggressive soldier out there, it means there are a dozen dishonest, unethical, lazy, pussie, and that is far more disturbing.... :|

It hardly sounds like a band of brothers....
I agree with Blaine, these so called crimes are mostly BS and soldiers should be given the benefit of the doubt.

"Case against Eddie Gallagher in doubt as fellow Navy SEAL says he, not Gallagher, killed prisoner"

Scott initially testified that he saw Gallagher stab the fighter in the neck, but later under cross-examination, he said he did not believe the stabbing killed him.
A trained combat medic, Scott admitted he put his thumb over a breathing tube that had been inserted into the ISIS fighter's mouth until the fighter asphyxiated.
When asked directly by defense lawyer Timothy Parlatore if Gallagher killed the fighter, Scott said, "No."

Fascinating. The news today reported that Scott has already been granted immunity for testifying (against Gallagher), so this could be a pretty interesting development...

If Gallagher is indeed innocent (and I'm betting he is - let alone my opinion that most of the 'rules' we have put in place governing war are ridiculous anyway), and if his subordinates had just concocted this case to retaliate against having to go into combat zones, this slap in their face is to be applauded, whether or not Scott is being truthful.

It is pretty bad when you have to worry about the REMFs more than the bad guys.

After the first Battle of Falluja my youngest was on a check point. A military aged male approached. He refused to stop or put his hands up he just kept walking towards the three Marines. My youngest shot him. All hell broke loose until his sergeant checked the body. They then backed off and waited for EOD. Had the Iraqi gotten close enough then raised his arms the multiple grenades on him would have gone off.

All too often people forget it is war. Sometimes the only way to survive war is to do things that most will never have to even contemplate.

Or as the man said, "People sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on THEIR behalf".

In WWII, my Uncle Homer saw a friend killed by a German kid asking for candy. The kid had a belt buckle which was a disguised gun. It had a squeeze device on a cable in his pocket to trigger it. Uncle Homer said from that point on, either the kid showed both hands or he shot the kid. He didn't like it, but he wanted to live.
