    After learning that Maj. Gen. Richard A. Huck of Camp LeJeune, then the commander of the Second Marine Division, reduced the sentence of Corporal Pimienta (who had murdered a fellow Marine by mishandling his weapon and then fled to Europe to escape prosecution) to six years and the dishonorable discharge to a bad-conduct discharge I realized the depths to which the United States Marine Corps has fallen.
    Major General Huck, in my opinion, is not fit for command.
    I don’t think he is the type of man that should be in the Marine Corps.
    The lack of judgment he used trying to hide this crime seemed a misguided attempt to maintain the reputation of the Marine Corps. Instead he tarnished it.
    It shows to the world gang style operations which present the Marine Corps not as an honorable group fighting for freedom but a gang led by out of touch officers who allow the enlisted men to kill one another instead of the enemy.
    This then, makes Major General Richard Huck, in my opinion, a danger not only the Marine Corps but to the United States of America.
    I understand that the military during peacetime allows men like Huck to move forward because other citizens are doing other things - but that is no excuse to allow him to continue in his office.
    The honorable thing that Major General Huck should do, if he is capable of honorable action (which I thoroughly doubt) would be to resign and decline his retirement pay immediately.

    STFU. The type of discharge given is dictated by regulation, not by a General. One either meets the criteria or doesn't. There is very little gray area.

    And please explain how mishandling a weapon equates to "murder." Negligent homicide maybe, but not murder.

    You're an idiot and obviously know absolutely NOTHING about military law.

    EVEN IF your uneducated opinion was close to correct, the individual actions of one do not tarnish the legacy of the US Marine Corps except in pea brains like yours.

    You dont know what you are talking about. Your opinion on this is worth absolutely nothing and your maligning the Marine Corps in general and individual Marines in particular just show what an ass you truly are.

    I suppose now that the Dems have some power it will soon be popular to bash the military and relegate its members to second class citizenship. I suspect you and others like you can now express a big sigh of relief in that you don't have to pretend you support the troops anymore.

    General Huck will be retire or he will be removed.
    The marine is now being sent into jail with real criminals who when they discover what he did to a real marine will carry out the justice you seem to unwilling to embrace.

    Your arrogant words dress up a cowardly position.

    Son, unless you're looking to have your ass handed to you on a platter, which it looks like CSM and GunnyL have already done, you need to read up on military law in general, and the UCMJ in particular.

    The accidental discharge of a weapon resulting in the death of another does not constitute murder, not even in civilian courts. At worst, it is negligent homicide.

    While I agree whole heartedly with the first paragraph, I don't your second. I don't think it will become "...popular to bash the military and relegate its members to second class citizenship...", regardless of who is in power.

    In fact, he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

    Your ignorance doesn't dress you up at all.

    I see you have chosen to step even deeper into "it," sharing your lack of knowledge on the military penal system. Nobody's going to touch him. Military prisoners march to and from, aren't allowed to speak, and are punished for the slightest infraction. Rehabilitation is not a desired outcome, punishment is. It bears no resemblance to civilian penitentiaries.
