    Semper Fi.

    They are doing the right thing. The disturbing part s that this came to light in an inadmissable lie detector test. Isn't there a law saying something about those can only look for deception?

    Ummm... It is an "inadmissable" test, which means it cannot be "admitted" as evidence in a criminal trial.

    That doesn't mean that the test is ultra-top-secret and the administrators of the test can't use it for ANY other purpose (such as denying employment or starting a criminal investigation).

    What's disturbing here is that a CIVILIAN court is trying a marine for actions that he may have committed in a war zone on the other side of the world. This should be declared out of their jurisdiction. If a crime was committed, the Marine Corps should recall this guy to active duty and try him a Court Martial.

    what about


    Death Before Dishonor


    They are doing exactly what they should do, maybe not what some people consider "right"

    but we all know how we love paper pushers and bean counters.

    Are these Marines refusing to testify because it is "right" or because of self-interest?

    We still have legal rights even though we wear a uniform. The fifth still applies and they can take it. The powers to be are pushing this in Fed court because they know a conviction at a Courts Martail won't happen.

    Why come to the Marine forum when you’re not a Jarhead to stir it up? I have no idea what kind of integrity that these Marines have nor do I know if any of them are guilty. I do know that they are presumed to be innocent.
