Well, justice is being served in this case, so far. An example of the fact that they are equal to the law just like everyone else, and hopefully a wake up for any soldiers that are thinking of doing the same thing.

Three Marines from Camp Pendleton will face courts-martial on murder charges in the death of an Iraqi man in the town of Hamdania, the Marine Corps said Monday.

Gen. James Mattis, the commanding general in the case, said he would not seek the death penalty.

The three were among seven Marines and one Navy corpsman charged with kidnapping and murdering 52-year-old Hashim Ibrahim Awad last April. The others face preliminary hearings in coming weeks.

This is breaking news, I'll post more links/info as it becomes available.

If they are found guilty of this crime, I say throw the book at them.
