    Default US Soldier Gets 20 Years For Killing Radical Muslims In Afghan

    A jury at Fort Bragg has found an 82nd Airborne Division lieutenant guilty of two counts of murder in connection with a series of shootings in Afghanistan.


    1st Lt. Clint Lorance was found guilty by the jury Thursday. He was found not guilty of making a false official statement.


    According to a New York Times report, Lorance was sentenced to 20 years in prison, forfeiture of pay and dismissal from the military.


    Prosecutors said Lorance ordered his men to open fire immediately in violation of the military’s rules of engagement, which requires soldiers to hold fire unless they have evidence of hostile action or hostile intent. They said three men on a motorcycle approached the patrol in July 2012. Two were killed and the third ran away.

    Seems a bit harsh going off what it says there.
