Minority Favoritism and the US / US Military

Reader comment on item: The Secret Pictures of Senior Airman Ahmad al Halabi

Submitted by Jailer (United States), Apr 6, 2004 at 01:21

Since the 60s, there has been in the military, a reluctance to judge personnel of the minorities the same when dealing with minority crime. This is both in the military as well as civilian left. It actually goes back to the Watts Riots many years before in CA.
The military has been lenient in many Courtss Martials fearing that the guilty party will scream prejudice which is often a ploy of the guilty. The same happens in the civilian life within the Jurisprudence system as well as the Correctional System. The US Government as well as the US Military are afraid to act upon the minorities who have broken the laws, rules and ordinances.

This is a fact of life in the US. In the case of this traitor US Army Captain James (Yousef") Yee if the specificatiions to the charges were solid, that sorry individual should have been charged with Sedition and if the courts martial had done it's duty, the sorry S.O.B. would either be in Leavenworth of better still, facing a death sentance. We are very quick to Charge and find guilty, an individual who is found guilty of an alleged offense and made a scapegoat in order for the US Government to be looked upon favorably by our enemy.

Are we still wondering why for so long a period of time, our military was lacking volunteers? Look at the way they are being treated now and see why retention may be a problem. The US Sailor, Soldier, Airman or Marine will go in harms way without much prodding but this person cannot stand to be wronged or dumped on by his leaders
