Lots of news, but very little No Man time. Bullet points is all I got in me:
- Fort Bliss soldier is awaiting transfer to BOP after being declared incompetent to stand trial in the shooting death of a teenager. Polanco apparently opened fire from inside his home and one of the shots hit the teen as he was passing by. See coverage here and here.
- Navy dog handlers are alleging hazing in their unit. Double entendre. See story here and investigation here. The investigation is rather old, but apparently has renewed interest.
- More news on the alleged mercy killing in Canada. See story here. Interesting quote, afellow soldier in Capt. Semrau’s company said, “British troops would call in medical evacuation for anyone who’s injured, but the Canadian Army leave wounded enemy on the battlefield. This Taleban fighter was going to die and, if anything, Rob has acted with compassion and put him out of his misery.”
