The lone survivor

Post by platinum_2007 »

This makes me extremely mad and sad at the same time

Interview with the lone survivor
HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A highly decorated Navy SEAL who found his beloved yellow Labrador retriever shot dead outside his home helped capture the alleged gunmen following a high-speed chase through three counties.

Marcus Luttrell stayed on the line with a 911 operator as he tried to catch the fleeing suspects during the 40-mile chase that reached speeds of over 100 mph.

This violates the forum rules, you can only have two paragraphs from an article off another site
in a single post, but anyways, that is pretty bad to hear.

I read that story earlier today. I think its awful that those guys went around shooting dogs. I think they should spend several years behind bars. What do you think is an appropriate sentence for someone who straight out intentionally killed a dog? 5 years? 10 years? Less then a year?

The fact that it happened to Marcus Luttrell makes it even worse. Very few people can say they have been through anything like that man has. They don't hand out Navy Crosses, that's for sure...

I haven't read the article but I would not be surprised if he winds up getting ticketed for speeding or something.
That seems to be what happens to the good guys sometimes.
