In regards to post: Cowardice and Neglect of Duty. Problem Not the Troops but the leaders-in the Parkland case the Sheriff not the Deputies are at fault. However moral cowardice is rife in American Leadership. NOTE: pl service Honorable. But this is a systems problem and a personnel problem. Some judge the deputies – there were 4 who did not enter – harshly. I myself judge leaders harshly not troops. Why yes I am a Veteran. Who else would I be? When it’s one it’s a coward. When it’s all 4 deputies present it’s the leadership. My main point is there’s a lot of that going around; our precious military leadership rife with moral cowards and backbiters who are false, faithless and allegiant only to their own interests. We’re as infected with social justice and moral cowardice that infects the troops as deeply as this blighted Sheriff Israel infected his deputies. Let’s begin with Broward county. That county had policies since 2011 to prevent Laws from being enforced. They were investigated and warned in depth in 2013 after Trayvon Martin shooting. Here are the policies and note the first source is Progressive, after following is indeed the Conservative Tree House however they put the work in and it’s documented. The point of the policies was to stop the “schools to prison pipeline” and it worked. Progressive source: note Scott Israel is the Sheriff. The conservative warnings about that school system in 2013. And now our precious military leadership. With their strange concept of “lawful orders” allowing them to pass responsibility onto the lowest ranking man/fall guy. >They suggest that prisoners shouldn’t have been taken and deny that was their meaning when the prisoners are shot…just as at Abu Gharib the orders to hurt the prisoners were questioned by SGT Grainer and affirmed by superiors -but Grainer was the lowest ranking man and the leaders as usual escape for the moment by the ‘lawful orders’ clause. Review – if a superior gives an ‘unlawful order’ and the subordinate carries it out then the subordinate is at fault and pays the price. A perfectly legal exception to the Chain of Command and responsibility. It’s all quite legal. But what is also "legal" is any suggestion of a superior is an order. What to do? What to do is NOTHING and someone else will act. The Leavenworth 10. 10 imprisoned for Lawful Orders but Superiors walked. Absolutely the worst yet most typical of our actual leadership – Corey Clagett. He followed orders but they were ‘unlawful’ so his entire chain of command walked, even got their precious 20. He got 20 years. Even Obama couldn’t stand that one and pardoned him. You see you can’t fool the Troops. You can fool the outside world, you can certainly tell the politicians anything they want to hear…but we The Troops see the Truth. Now the above may not apply to you or how some ran their unit. It certainly however applies to the institution and the Marines are not immune either – see Haditha 7. Peer conflict should be interesting. Or War in America. There will you see be no lawyers or FOBs to hide behind. Just the Troops and their “Leaders.” Others may return now to the ritual of denunciation. Others may even denounce me – but you should know that just raises standing in the Wolf Pack. I don’t blame the Troops or the Deputies however- just the leadership. Good day and as your service was honorable so I respect it – but the denunciations have for too long only been one way. Cheers, vetssc17
