Soldier Gets 100 Years - A Light Sentence
Wednesday, February 28, 2007
Five soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division participated in the planning and execution of a rape and murder plot of a fourteen year old Iraqi girl and her family. The one soldier who held the girl down while the others took their turns on her was given the lightest sentence of 90 years.
Aside from the obvious problems that these murders escalate (more violence against American troops), no amount of stress, groupthink or any other reason can exist for the rape and murder of a woman, let alone a fourteen year old girl.
These men are dead to me.
