    Body parts, photos part of charges against soldiers

    more than one question arises from this horrifying story....but WHY was this morlock person still a soldier?

    Body parts, photos part of charges against soldiers - World news - South and Central Asia - Afghanistan - msnbc.com

    Army Spc. Jeremy Morlock, 22, from Wasilla, Alaska, is charged with premeditated murder in the deaths of three Afghan civilians, assaulting a fellow soldier and "wrongfully photographing and possessing visual images of human casualties."

    Morlock has a history of criminal charges, the Tacoma News Tribune reported Monday: his wife sought a domestic-violence protective order against him two years ago; he was charged with assault and disorderly conduct against his wife and found guilty of the latter charge last year; when he was 15, he was charged with leaving an accident involving an injury or death and received a deferred prosecution.

    Morlocks!


    That's the first thing I thought of reading this article.

    Probably, because he didn't do anything that warranted him being cashiered from the service.

    then the rules should change.....the boy clearly should have never been in the position to kill people. a sympton of the armed forces being under manned.

    Those have been the rules for decades, now. If you discharged every soldier that committed a misdemeanor, the military would really be undermanned.

    If I were a platoon seargent, Morlock is defenitely one of the guys I would want in my unit.

    As hard as it is to do I am going to withhold my condemnation of the ghoulish acts depicted until the final verdict is in but this is awful if guilty as charged and there is no justification for it.

    I appears that these soldiers may have snapped under the pressure and don't remember seeing anything about how many tours Morlock was on when this allegedly took place.

    I'm not making an excuse just wondering about what happens in ones mind under the constant threat of death at every turn.

    This is tragic on all sides.

    You really do surprise me sometimes councilman.

    That's 100% how I think of it. Especially the underlined section.

    I think the answer to your question is "due process."
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
