People here at the 101st have no problem with this guy being put to death. The local papers as well as the Ft Campbell papers said justice has been served.

It is not that hard to make Sergeant anymore. It seems the Army is afraid to weed out those who are not worthy of being an NCO. There are more than a few people at my unit who believe that a soldier should go thru a psyc evaluation before being an NCO. I have to tell you there be some people who abuse power like a if you know what I mean

A firing squad is a way to execute enemy personnel who need to be executed but not stripped of their honor.
This guy is not good enough to be given the right to die by a bullet.

You're right. I think Pvt. Slovik was the last soldier executed by firing squad after the Korean war and he was a scapegoat.

Of course he is nuts. Anybody who would do a thing like this has a few screws loose, that does not mean he should get to live the rest of his life in a minimum secutiry psych ward. Maybe just solitary for life.

With a constant lowering of standards and a zero defect approach to things it is really NOT a surprise that someone like this was in uniform and an NCO. When you don't hold people to standards and you are more concerned with just keeping warm bodies in uniform this is what you are going to get. The law of averages. Back in the late 80's early 90's there was a problem of gangbangers getting into uniform and actual gangs functioning in the armed forces. Why would the presence of an american hating psychopath be such a surprise?
