Two Marines are charged with assault and battery against San Diego police officers – and part of the incident was captured by a police body camera. As NBC 7's Omari Fleming explains, the attorney for one of the Marines is calling it abuse of power
His attorney Paul Neuharth says he’s appalled, adding his client was out celebrating a friend’s return from Afghanistan and a birthday.
Neuharth says the Marines were trying to administer First Aid to someone who got knocked out during a street fight, but police pushed them back.
“You got two Marines that will be kicked out of the Marine Corps as a result of this if convicted of those felonies, which started as giving First Aid to an unconscious person they never knew,” Neuharth said.
Now the Marines, tomorrow the army.
And Since You ,I'm Assuming, Have Never Been In A Branch Of Service For Your Country Will Never Know What That feeling Of Respect will Ever Feel Like.

Any idiot can serve four years in the military.
I would love to see a study on police convicted of brutality and how prevalent prior military service was in those cases. My bet is it would be off the charts. Even more so if they saw any real action.
Perhaps if LE agencies quit hiring people that have been proven to have mental instabilities far higher than average, we wouldn't have so many issues with police.
The military preys on people with no better options the majority of the time.
