No Justice For Murdered Iraqi Grandfather

I ran across this bit of insanity while surfing REUTERS…
IN WHAT WAY does this constitute “justice?” In the Bushzarro world we live in it has become increasingly apparent that the deaths of innocent Iraqis through collateral damage is overlooked with routine indifference, and the INTENTIONAL killing of an OLD MAN and a cover-up of the act is only punished by TIME SERVED PLUS REDUCTION IN RANK??? Fucking QUIT IT already…this is NOT JUSTICE. PERIOD. If memory serves the penalties could be harsher for getting caught in an adulterous affair with your XO’s wife…fucking crazy.
CAMP PENDLETON, California (Reuters) – A military jury sentenced a Marine to 448 days in prison on Thursday after he was found guilty of conspiracy in the 2006 murder and kidnapping of an Iraqi grandfather.
The jury at California’s Camp Pendleton found Cpl. Marshall Magincalda guilty on Wednesday of larceny and housebreaking. He was also convicted of participating in a conspiracy to murder, kidnap, commit larceny and obstruction of justice, make a false official statement and break into a house.
Because he has spent the last 450 days in detention, the punishment means Magincalda will be released from the brig on Friday and reduced in rank to private.
