21 Months For A Cold Blooded Murder

A 21-year-old lance corporal who joined the Marine Corps to "have adventures I could tell about" became the fourth defendant Tuesday to plead guilty to dragging an unarmed Iraqi from his home and executing him as he begged for his life.

Lance Cpl. Jerry E. Shumate Jr. was sentenced to 21 months in the brig after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

This man got a measly 21 months after he murdered a man, for no reason, and who was unarmed and was begging for his life.

I need another drink.
