Bush OKs execution of Army death row prisoner

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080728/...tary_execution

I am no judge, nor would I want to be. I just find it shocking that it has been so long since a president has authorized the execution of a military member.

Re: Bush OKs execution of Army death row prisoner

Hopefully this thread doesn't deteriorate into something ugly, but armed forces or not, he got what he deserved. 4 murders and 8 rapes? I will bet even armed forces guys would be ashamed he's one of them. That type of behavior doesn't live up to the honor and respect that I have come to associate with the vast majority of the fighting men and women.

You couldn't pay me enough to post here...Just sayin'

Re: Bush OKs execution of Army death row prisoner

Since the military justice system works differently and I believe more efficiently, I'm surprised it's going to take longer.

I don't see why this should turn into something nasty. I just thought it was something that struck me as weird, I suppose.

Re: Bush OKs execution of Army death row prisoner

As a service memeber I actually am glad to see this, I see all to often that service members think they can hide behind the " I am military" excuse. Hopefully this will send a message to those that still think they are above the law as service members. If anything I feel that we should be held to a higher standard and set an example for all to follow seeing that we do represent the nation here and abroad. okay stepping off the soap box now.

I was just commenting on the political aspect, because no matter how much it doesn't matter who is in office, anything can be made into something political by someone with an agenda to push. Not saying that it will happen, I just hope it stays on topic.

Re: Bush OKs execution of Army death row prisoner

from what i remember during my time in the service was there is no double jeopardy rule in the military. i had a buddy who got in trouble out in town one night. he went through civilian court system. then when he was done with that he went to captain's mast (navy), he got it twice. and you usually don't catch a break in the town your stationed in. while the people in the town depend on the revenue from the bases they still have to put up with a lot of crap from us (not all of us). plus your always datng their daughters, they really don't like that. plus the military has this artile of the u.c.m.j, 81 i think. that is a catch all, if they can't punish you under a certain article for something specific they can use article 81 to get you. this guy was just a bad person and this has been put off for 20 years and 4 or 5 presidents.
