    US Soldier Sentenced to 24 Years in Prison in Afghan Murder Case

    US Soldier Sentenced to 24 Years in Prison in Afghan Murder Case

    A U.S. soldier accused of being part of a squad that deliberately killed Afghan civilians pleaded guilty to murder and other charges Wednesday and was sentenced to 24 years in prison.

    During a court martial in the state of Washington, military judge Lieutenant Colonel Kwasi Hawks said he intended to sentence 22-year-old Army Specialist Jeremy Morlock to life in prison with possibility of parole but was bound by the plea deal. He said Morlock will get 352 days off of his sentence for time served.

    Morlock was the first of five soldiers to be court-martialed for murdering three civilians in southern Kandahar province last year. He is expected to testify against the other soldiers. He told the judge "the plan was to kill people."

    Morlock was charged with three counts of murder, and one count each of conspiracy to commit assault and battery, obstructing justice, and illegal drug use.

    The court martial came days after the German news magazine Der Spiegel published graphic photos showing Morlock and other soldiers posing and smiling over the bodies of dead civilians.

    If you teach a dog to bite, then bite he will. This cuntry is so f-ed up. They can hang burned U.S. soilders upside down from a bridge and we have to play nice. No wonder we can't win a war. How many innocents died in our shock and awe commaned by the chiefs.

    That is bad news for everyone. Too bad our troops are involved, I am sure this happens in all wars. War is inevetable in this society. always was always will be.

    And people wonder why they don't want our "democracy"

    I'm happy these sorry excuses for Americans are facing consequences.

    I've never been over there, so I won't judge. I can certainly see where soldiers can be desensitized by the people there wanting them dead and the brass tieing them up with pc'ness and red tape bullshit, as usual.

    You ever see Band of Brothers series? I assume most of you have and if you havn't you've lived in a fucking hole - see it now. There is an army captain named Ronald Speirs that was almost legendary in the group for reasons that would get you life in prison today. I say if your going to put our men in piss poor situations, you better give them some slack. Every situation is different, but too much of this shit is happening. Either let the dogs loose, or bring them home, otherwise this shit happens.

    Read up on Captain Speirs, it's a good read:
    Ronald Speirs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And watch the series if you haven't yet. I have watched it over a dozen times and it still tears me up in the end. Every time. It's that good.

    I actually know Private Heffron in real life. He still drinks in a bar that I hang in sometimes. Hes like 80 years old and still as nasty as a mo-fo. Him and Wild Bill Guarnere are the ones who told the stories to Tom Hanks. They are both South Philly guys.

    Let me play the Jew lawyer on this one... from what I read here they/he "deliberately killed Afghan civilians" and the operative word here is "Civilians" is this not a crime?

    i've been out of country and it is scary as shit in the cz. but, considering when you get down to the brass tacks we are there protecting the natural resources of that country and not for "democracy". that being the case civilian casualties should be a minimum. a professional soldier doesn't kill unarmed civilians, that's what your general loser gang member, liquor store robber, psychopath, etc. does.

    the US has depleted most of it's natural resources we have no fear of ever being "taken" over or invaded by anyone. we should treat others better

    I've never been in the service but I can imagine when your getting shot at all day the line between sane and psychopath is very thin.

    Not innocent people. It defeats the purpose of hand to hand combat, smart missiles...if we didn't care about civilians we would just nuke them saving ourselves money and American lives.

    How does a soldier know who's guilty? Seriously.

    Isn't their motto "Kill them all and let got sort them out" or some shit?

    What this guy was terrible and I hope he is punished to the fullest extent of military law and code.

    but our military has over 1.5M active duty personnel...by law of statistics there are going to be a few wackos from time2time. This type of sick behavior in war isn't new and its not unique to US soldiers. It despicable, but its not a direct result of the "US being effed up".

    i dont condone the behavior, but there is a lot of shit behind the scenes that you dont know about. because of loac and the geneva convention, we are held to a higher standard. they could literally kill all your friends, throw their gun on the ground and surrender, and it would be a crime to kill them.

    they all hate us over there, and quite frankly i could give a shit less if any of those fuckers die

    Your always going to have a few nuts running amok in a war, a few Vietnam vets were known to be loony.

    I'm just glad that even though they are the enemy the majority sees the wrong in their actions.

    If people can condone that behavior then they can also condone this...
    Can't find it, it's about 4 military veterans kill one of their own and his wife in California...I think that was the story.
