He should be given a dishonorable discharge and brought up on assault charges. America's finest, my ass.

 

 

(Full article at above link)
A Muslim Marine said he was called a terrorist and ordered into an industrial clothes dryer multiple times by a drill instructor who then turned it on, burning him, according to investigative documents that provide new details about the alleged abuse of recruits at the service’s training center at Parris Island, S.C.

“You’re going to kill us all the first chance you get aren’t you, terrorist?” the drill instructor thundered at the recruit, the new Marine later alleged, according to the documents that have not been released publicly but were reviewed by The Washington Post. “What are your plans? Aren’t you a terrorist?”

The issue of hazing and abuse at Parris Island surfaced March 18, when a 20-year-old recruit with Pakistani roots — Raheel Siddiqui of Taylor, Mich. — died after leaping from a stairwell landing that was nearly 40 feet high while running away from the same drill instructor who used the dryer. The instructor had just slapped Siddiqui before he jumped. Siddiqui’s death drew public scrutiny to a culture of harsh punishments at Parris Island — one that Marine officials were already examining, the documents show.

Last week, service officials announced that 20 members of Parris Island’s staff could face criminal charges or administrative discipline following the conclusion of three investigations into various abuse allegations. But the documents and an interview with a Marine official with knowledge of the investigations suggest dozens more Parris Island Marines could be implicated in the scandal.

Marine Commandant Gen. Robert B. Neller, addressing the abuse allegations last week, said in a statement that recruit training will remain physically and mentally challenging, but that the manner in which Marines are made is as important as the final product.

 

“When America’s men and women commit to becoming Marines, we make a promise to them,” he said. “We pledge to train them with firmness, fairness, dignity and compassion.”

 

Some details of the abuse have previously been reported, but the investigative documents describe an environment in which one unit in particular — 3rd Recruit Training Battalion — had drill instructors who not only tested recruits’ mettle, as is expected, but abused them physically and emotionally.

Ethnic and gay slurs were also used regularly, and drill instructors ordered repeated, unauthorized physical training that sometimes injured recruits. The drill instructors also sometimes were drunk on the job, bringing Fireball whiskey into work on at least one occasion, recruits told investigators.

In one case, a senior drill instructor who had seen a photograph of a recruit’s sister made him log into his Facebook account so he could request that she call Parris Island on the telephone. When she did, the drill instructor took the phone away from the recruit, introduced himself and said that he had heard she was single and wanted to know whether they could get to know each other. The drill instructor later denied it, but the sister corroborated the recruit’s story with copies of the Facebook messages, according to the documents. The drill instructor involved in the dryer case, an unidentified sergeant, was allowed to continue training recruits after allegations of abuse were made, in part because Marine officials did not take the accusations seriously, one investigation found.

The alleged incident occurred in 2015, and was reported last November by the targeted Marine and two enlisted colleagues who by then had moved on to initial aviation training in Pensacola, Fla. The new Marine said he was also accused of participating in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The former recruit said he was kept in the dryer long enough that his neck and arm started to burn and he began to cry, according to the documents.

Recruits who were abused were also warned that “snitches get stitches.” Instructors also bribed recruits with protein bars and other food to keep them quiet, according to the documents.

They/he went too far.

 

But there are confirmed reports of Muslims joining the military forces of several Western nations so the Mujahids will have been trained by the best and at zero cost to the Jihadists or Jihadist groups.

 

And of course we saw what a wolf in sheep's clothing can do a la Major Hassan.

 

13 dead Americans at the hands of a Muslim U.S. Army Major.

 

I think we lose more than we gain by allowing them to serve.

It's an action unbecoming an officer. Step down and remove your uniform.

Conduct unbecoming an officer is...

 

 

Any commissioned officer, cadet, or midshipman who is convicted of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

 

Elements.

 

(1) That the accused did or omitted to do certain acts; and

 

(2) That, under the circumstances, these acts or omissions constituted conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman.

 

Explanation.

 

(1) Gentleman. As used in this article, gentleman includes both male and female commissioned officers, cadets, and midshipmen.£

D.I.'s are not commissioned officers.

The Marine drill sergeant was way out of line. He should be removed as a drill sergeant and court martialed.

It is conduct unbefitting a drill sergeant,

There is no proof of the Muslim recruit being a terrorist. The drill sergeant was a simplistic bigot and should be removed from his position.

If US military personnel who swear to uphold the US Constitution and everything it stands for, including freedom if religion, cannot practice these rights, they might as well resign from the military and join David Duke's KKK. I'm sure Duke's "Good 'ole Boys" network would be happy to have him.

Marine drill instructors are not officers. They are NCOs.

He should be arrested and court martialed, as per regulations.

Our military is 90% retards, that couldn't get a fucking job anywhere else.

So what branch are you in?

Oh wait, you said people getting a job. My bad. You're off the hook.

There have also been confirmed reports of Muslim Americans joining the military to defend and protect this nation that they genuinely love and respect.

 

Perhaps we need to get better at recognizing the infiltrators instead of being counterproductive bigots and broadbrushing ALL Muslims. :rolleyes: Novel concept, I realize.
