Green Beret discharged for beating alleged child rapist speaks out
(CNN)Sergeant 1st Class Charles Martland, the Green Beret being separated involuntarily from the U.S. Army for kicking and body slamming an Afghan police commander he describes as a “brutal child rapist,” began telling his side of the story Monday.
Martland is under a gag order imposed by the Pentagon, but at the request of Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif, he wrote a statement detailing his actions on Sept. 6, 2011, which was obtained by CNN.
“Kicking me out of the army is morally wrong and the entire country knows it,” Martland writes. Last week the Army rejected his appeal.
Martland and former Captain Daniel Quinn were disciplined by the Army after they beat a powerful local police official who they concluded had been raping a small boy. They say they had been encouraged by higher-ups that there was nothing to do about such horrific acts, that these were Afghan problems for the Afghan authorities to work out.
But the Afghan authorities wouldn’t do anything about it, the two soldiers say.
“Our ALP (Afghan Local Police) were committing atrocities and we were quickly losing the support of the local populace,” Martland writes in his statement. “The severity of the rapes and the lack of action by the Afghan Government caused many of the locals to view our ALP as worse than the Taliban.”
Quinn and Martland were told by a young Afghan boy and his mother, through an Afghan interpreter, that the boy had been tied to a post at the home of Afghan Local Police commander Abdul Rahman and raped repeatedly for up to two weeks. When his mother tried to stop the attacks, they told the soldiers, Rahman’s brother beat her. Quinn says he verified the story with other ALP commanders from neighboring villages. Then they invited Rahman to the camp.
“After the child rapist laughed it off and referenced that it was only a boy, Captain Quinn picked him up and threw him,” Martland writes. Martland then proceeded to “body slam him multiple times,” kick him in the rib cage, and put his foot on his neck. “I continued to body slam him and throw him for fifty meters until he was outside the camp,” Martland writes. “He was never knocked out, and he ran away from our camp.” The incident lasted no more than five minutes, he says.
Quinn told CNN’s “The Lead” last week “We basically had to make sure that he fully understood that if he ever went near that boy or his mother again, there was going to be hell to pay.”
“While I understand that a military lawyer can say that I was legally wrong, we felt a moral obligation to act,” Martland writes.
Quinn told CNN that they took the action they took because otherwise nothing would be done by the Army or local authorities. “The reason we weren’t able to step in with these local rape cases was we didn’t want to undermine the authority of the local government,” he said. “We were trying to build up the local government. Us acting after the local government fails to can certainly undermine their credibility.”
The Pentagon denies that telling soldiers to look the other way is official practice.
“We have never had a policy in place that directs any military member, or any government personnel overseas to ignore human rights abuses,” Defense spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said. “Any sexual abuse, no matter who the alleged perpetrator and no matter who the victim, is completely unacceptable and reprehensible.”
-You want an American hero, you got him! Beat a child molester and kill him and you have my vote for fucking life! These trash are not able to be rehabilitated and need swift execution and anyone who believes that one of these putrid fucks can pay a debt to society needs to get extensive shock therapy!
The best thing for a molester is a bullet to the back of the head, and that means an adult and a little child, not an 18yr old with a 16yr old! It is a well known fact in the military that soldiers from the Middle East as well as civilians commonly molest little boys and as long as they aren’t public about it, then it isn’t an afront to Islam. Ask the people who have been there, they have a frame of reference, not asshole liars who pontificate about things they don’t have the slightest idea about!
To be quite clear, I do not dislike hipsters for there ill thought out fashion nonsense, in fact I very much enjoy seeing fools parade about in their sisters’ jeans and a beard long enough to hide a thousand pencils in it. From the high water skinny jeans to the purple plaid shirts, to the iconic Target classic tee underneath, to the faux-hawk hairstyle. These guys have managed to create a fad out of being what they call unique. Sampling from all cultures past and present, they wax ironic, openly challenge people on their adherence to PC convoluted bullshit, and hoist the PBR in victory at being the most diverse of complete fadsters to infect the major cities of the civilized world.
In order to fit into the hipster mold one needs to forsake all common sense and literally become a sampler of culture that has already been established and made unique in it;s own right. The theft of this I compare to the rappers of the 90’s who blatantly stole the lyrics of classic rock to add value to their worthless corporate crap poetry.Of course I cannot complain about the resurgence of the use of vinyl records, Polaroid cameras and many of the other things that were unique to the pre-computer age. With the advent of compact computers we have seen the imminent death of the book, the magazine and the newspaper all within the last 10 years. Hipsters have delayed the demise of these character-filled traditional venues and for this I am grateful, but with this comes the elitist self-righteous attitudes and the ad nauseum adherence to PC follower bullshit that admonishes people to doff their sensibilities and logic.
It has become popular thru social pressure to vilify human nature regarding sex and relationships and to over-complicate any and all means of obtaining casual sex in the modern world. Now there has to be agreements and complex PC social adherence to hipster norms in order to just admit that all you want for the night is to get laid. Male shaming is at an all time high related to the popularized and sensationalized exploits of a few asshole men who cannot distinguish between the words ‘NO’ and ‘YES.’ I, for one, have daughters and would fucking kill any motherfucker who would be stupid enough to attack either of them. I have even adjusted my porn to only include those movies that I know only contain consensual partners. I campaign against human trafficking and would be mortified to find that I was watching porn involving coerced subjects, so yes, I screen my porn. The whole Duke University student thing involving Miriam Weeks/Belle Knox showed that many of these performers are very willing and well paid participants in the adult entertainment industry. Her pithy explanation regarding why she did it holds no water when stacked up against the hundreds of thousands of students who have worked two jobs to afford college. I myself had to do that and I am educated for that decision. Weeks is not a victim, she did this of her own volition, per her own explanation.
I have been told that I am closed minded for saying that I find hipster men to be too effeminate in regards to their thin, emaciated appearance and inability to physically fight off someone who would attack their girlfriend in a dark alley. Women in the hipster vein tend to choose men who weigh less than they do and who would blow away in a strong wind. My secret crush married a man who was shorter than her, slight in frame and absolutely hideous in appearance, but had a gigantic ego to compensate for all of his pussiness. He is the consummate hipster self-important asshole who believes that he is such a unique snowflake in a sea of people who look exactly like he does. I am married, but this woman was responsible for me coming out as an atheist activist and I continue to believe that she should have chosen a better mate. Not me, but maybe in an alternate universe……
Hipsters are a disease, and as we know once a disease takes root it will infect many before it is exterminated, and hipsterism needs to be exterminated. Common sense only exists in the absence of this contagion and I can tell you that the hipster menace is number one in the opinion that the New Atheist Movement is obsolete and that religion and atheism can live side by side. This is a logical fallacy, as they say in debate circles, and needs to be seen as the invasive cancer that it is. Religion is nothing without the doctrine, and Christianity without the Genesis account is totally unnecessary if people only believe the story to be a parable. If this is true then the religion totally unravels and has NO credibility, so why even bother to worship the myth of Yaweh? Most hipsters that I have met are fuzzy belief people who have not a conviction in their body regarding what is right or wrong. They believe that if people live a lie they should be afforded the same credibility as those rooted in reality. This is the ambiguous science denial bullcrap that allows myth to live on as reality for generations after it has been proven fallacy. Religion is un provable crap and needs to give way to that which can be proven.
Again, hipsters are very deluded idiots who complicate reality and promote knee-jerk PC shit that vilifies one sex over the other. Hipsterism is a fad that will die as all other fads have done and will be remembered as a total ridiculous scourge if logic prevails. I continue to go to the gym and am 230lbs at 6ft 1in. Fuck you effeminate hipster fragile assholes, I’m gonna punch the fuck out of the guy who fucks with me in a dark alley!
