That should be a no-brainer, but apparently not: Marine expelled over YouTube puppy video
The Marine Corps said Wednesday it was expelling one Marine and disciplining another for their roles in a video showing a Marine throwing a puppy off a cliff while on patrol in Iraq…
“The actions seen in the Internet video are contrary to the high standards we expect of every Marine and will not be tolerated,” Marine Corps Base Hawaii said in a news release. “The vast majority of Marines conduct their duties with honor and compassion that makes American people proud.”
I expect that some might question whether ridding the Corps of a trained Marine over a puppy is the best decision in a time of war, but this was just so retarded it’s tough to argue against it, in Murdoc’s mind.
First, in today’s world you’ve got to realize that anything you do might show up on YouTube. Secondly, the puppy tossing is only being filmed because cameras are cheap and small. Third, the film only gets seen because of the internet. Finally, does the Marine even toss the puppy in a world with no YouTube?
