but does that mean it is bad???

A U.S. soldier who pleaded guilty this week to four counts of felony murder, rape and conspiracy to rape was sentenced to 100 years in prison Thursday. Sgt. Paul E. Cortez was involved in the gang rape and killing of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and the killing of her family.

Abeer Qassim al-Janabi was raped by by Cortez and other soldiers last year before she, her parents and her younger sister were murdered.
Prosecutors said that extreme stress was not a sufficient excuse for what Cortez and the other soldiers did.
Another soldier involved, Spc. James Barker, 24, pleaded guilty to rape and murder in November and was given a 90-year prison sentence. Pfcs. Jesse Spielman, 22, and Bryan Howard, 19, await courts-martial. The soldier accused of being the ringleader, Seven D. Green, will be prosecuted in a federal court in Kentucky. He has already been discharged from the military.

I mean the military let the ring leader OUT of military service...

So do they really mean to say that this sort of thing is like bad, or even like really that bad???

I mean the guys are not getting sent back to Iraq....
