'kill team' Soldier Morlock Sentenced To 24 Years

By jimstaro - Posted on 24 March 2011

"lived in fear of being killed by them every day."

By their actions, not only in killing civilians but the mistreatment of the bodies of those killed, they raised the bar of more retaliation and blowback, you can't hide atrocities and war crimes in a conflict theater, not only towards them but all the soldiers serving in the occupation as well as a rise in international criminal terrorism, it only takes a few!

JBLM Soldier Morlock Sentenced To 24 Years For Killing Afghan Civilians

March 23, 2011 - Spc. Jeremy Morlock, one of five 5th Stryker Brigade soldiers out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord facing military charges of premeditated murder while deployed in Afghanistan, pleaded guilty in a general court-martial Wednesday and was sentenced to 24 years in prison.

KIRO 7 Reporter Richard Thompson said the judge originally announced Morlock's sentence as life in prison, but then corrected himself and said Morlock would serve 24 years due to a plea agreement that would also have him testify against other soldiers.

"I want to apologize to the victims and their families," Morlock said in court. "I take responsibility for the deaths and the pain that I've caused. Please consider my guilty plea as acceptance of my responsibilities."

He added that, "We lost fellow soldiers to IEDs and lived in fear of being killed by them every day."

Morlock is the first of the five to face court-martial and his attorney said this week that Morlock would plead plead guilty. {continued}

and on top of that he got just 24 years? 8 years per murder?
His testimony against the others isn't needed. They took pictures of their crimes. There was no need for this disgraceful plea action.
What a sorry pathetic excuse for justice.
