Interesting Air Force Times article, here, on the merits of hard labor as a punishment. I awarded hard labor as a summary court-martial officer, so you probably know where I once stood on the issue. But, considering this article . . . I may have some more thoughts tonight.

    Same article in Army Times for those of us with an Army bias

    You did? And weren’t you a trial counsel, before you became one of the anti death penalty people?

    Who said I was anti death penalty? That and the Cully Stimson liberal slant are what make this blog great!

    Let’s put this in LSAT format:

    Cully : CAAFlog

    Alan Colmes : Fox News

    Not a commentary on quality, but on worldview.

    I don’t know if anyone’s read “Holes” by Louis Sachar, but the punishment described in the Air Force Times article is a direct rip-off from that story. I almost wonder if there isn’t a copyright violation (kidding).

    Captain Dan Pedersen?

    We have been down this road before. I predict that commanding officers will compete to who can be the most cruel, they will end up killing some E-1 victim….and then will burn an E-6 for following their order.
