I, by no means condone this Marines behavior. It is shameful to the corp. I can only say that a civilian without combat experience, that has most likely never fired a gun and has never even been close to being shot at, has no credibility to determine what a soldier is, should be, should get or when he/she should get it.
This Marines behavior is completely uncalled for and I hope the high heaven that the military authorities apply fully appropriate punishment to him and full retribution to the victim. The fact remains that this Marine needs some serious help and should receive it for the service he has provided to his country. All of the big-mouthed, tough guys that want to call names and shove out their opinions here are only displaying their supreme ignorance.
