3 Marines Arrested For Jan 6 Capitol Riot

All three - Cpl. Micah Coomer and Sgts. Joshua Abate and Dodge Dale Hellonen - say they are going to fight the charges as they were doing their duty as an Active Marine

Isn't that a good defense?

Good luck with that.

R1 but they are Active Marines saying they were just doing their duty as a Marines

So 3 guys who swore to defend our nation and constitution were involved in an attempt to overthrow that same constitution and want a civil war? What's wrong with this picture?

I see at least two passives.

Nothing wrong about that, of course. Just trying to keep the lies to a minimum.

They say we are on the wrong side, while they are on the right side. Hence storming the Capitol, to right a wrong

The Marine Corps has the least intelligent members of all the military services. Back in the day (and maybe now as well, IDK) they actually took (please forgive me) people who were called at the time "retarded."

Whaddya gonna do?

Ah, the twisted pretzel logic of MAGA deplorables.

In my experiences, a marine’s first duty is to kick his legs up and present hole after shots are consumed and the door is closed. Juicy bottoms.

Charge them under the UCMJ.

Just judging from the photos, there's something genetically deficient about each of the men.

You know, I am still so pissed off about how the entire insurrection and supporting plotting, planning, financing, and scheming was handled, if I allow myself to think about it, or to watch video footage from that day, I want to go out here and kick their asses. Instead we have the fucking "Sedition Caucus" actually running the House of Representatives. Most of them ought to be expelled and banned from ever running for office again.

As for the insurrectionists themselves, the thousands who stormed the capitol assaulting police officers, etc, and everyone involved in planning and assisting, including members of Congress, they should have been rounded up within hours, loaded into trucks and carted to some military base and held there until they could be "processed." If you were a member of the U.S. military, present and former, you should be stripped of benefits and court martialed where appropriate. These three ought to be facing a fucking firing squad.

And Trump, as commander in chief should have faced a military tribunal and imprisoned. There is no need to question his role, and argue the degree of culpability. But we did not move with urgency. All these people who were given a slap on the wrist should have been severely punished immediately.

R14 everything you wrote - the 3 Active Duty Marines say you have been brainwashed, which is why they stormed the Capitol. To right a wrong

Coomer must have been dragged to the pokey by his nose.

by Anonymousreply 16January 21, 2023 12:28 AM

With guys like this- on both sides- we'll never get rid of war. Dodge, Micah, Josh... are hardwired for aggression- and we the taxpayers have to pay for them.

by Anonymousreply 17January 21, 2023 12:30 AM

We had Trump on tape begging the SoS in GA to fix the election. We had 63+ lawsuits throw out because there was NO EVIDENCE of tampering. Including by the SCOTUS. How in hell could active duty members of the armed forces who took an oath, decide they could reject all of that and believe what they wanted. They aren't independent agents. Tell you one damned thing, they need to stop broadcasting Faux News on all military bases.

Where does common sense come in?

Taking your argument at face value, they thought there was “a wrong,” so their solution to right that supposed wrong is to storm the heart of our democracy, killing people in the process, assaulting numerous police officers, participating in a riot and an insurrection against the very government they swore to protect?

by Anonymousreply 19January 21, 2023 1:11 AM

R14, your second paragraph pisses me off the most I think. Not one person—not a muthafuckin ONE—who is and/or was “in power” has been held accountable for any of their actions whatsoever. From the tub of lard who started it, Giuliani for encouraging “trial by combat,” to Moe Brooks urging people to “take names and kick ass,” to Boebert texting the location of the Speaker, to Maddy Cripple at the event, to all those congresspeople who gave tours and directions around the Capitol, etc. etc. I FUME when I see and hear coverage of that day and the lack of any accountability.

R15, let them explain that to Officers at a court martial. Let them decide these Marine’s fate.

I’m fine with that.

by Anonymousreply 21January 21, 2023 1:25 AM

What I find concerning is that I am certain there are many others in the military who supported Trump and/or support and embrace the views of the Extreme Right. I have asked myself many times since January 6th 2021, whether or not the U.S. Military and the states' National Guard had been infiltrate so much so that we were afraid a real civil war would have broken out that day if they had all been called up.

by Anonymousreply 22January 21, 2023 1:50 AM

All three are guilty of treason.

They should be court martialed and executed.

But before that, they should be dishonorably discharged and lose all military benefits.

by Anonymousreply 23January 21, 2023 3:55 AM

Were they actually breaking into the building? Were they there on duty? Is that possible?

by Anonymousreply 24January 21, 2023 3:57 AM

are they on bail?

by Anonymousreply 25January 21, 2023 11:34 PM

Of course they weren't there "on duty" r24, are you nuts?

As active-duty Marines, in order to be there on duty they would had to have been given orders to be there and performing some sort of function for the US Military. No one is aware of any such orders being given to any active-duty Marines on January Sixth during the Insurrection.

This "defense" isn't worth the bandwidth it took some fucking moron to type it out. It's a non-defense.

by Anonymousreply 26January 21, 2023 11:48 PM

Trump absolutely should be hanged for treason. Maybe these guys too, but Trump, absolutely. He was commander in chief at the time and committed treason against the Constitution he swore to defend. He should be hanged, sooner rather than later.

by Anonymousreply 27January 21, 2023 11:54 PM

Also, anybody dragged in front of any committee chaired by the cunts in the Republican Party should start with a question: where were you on January 6 and why aren't you in jail?

by Anonymousreply 28January 22, 2023 12:00 AM

I've said it before, but all this bullshit from the DoJ is a smokescreen. If they are serious about this Trump was Commander in Chief when he did this. So he should be tried by a military tribunal, sentenced and executed. Instead we have bullshit. More than two years after and he is running for POTUS, and the Sedition Caucus is running the House of Representatives. I get why they would want to investigate solely for the purpose of identifying all the players, and determining how much planning went into it. But There should absolutely not be continuing endless investigations and Special Prosecutors to determine whether or not he has committed a crime. He has. He did it in plain sight. Same with those fucking documents. Instead the Media is trying to relate what happened to Trump as the same thing Biden did. No. Do they think we're stupid? They are craven cowards and our fucki9ng government is so damned corrupt it is outrageous.

by Anonymousreply 29January 22, 2023 4:39 AM

I'd give every single person who participated in the January Sixth Treason to be charged with Treason and/or Sedition, along with whatever other charges are brought. I want them arrested, tried and convicted with a life sentence.

If we don't throw the book at these violent, ignorant, anti-American fuckers we'll just have to deal with them again the next time they try a deadly stunt like this. Deal with them harshly the first time.

And since we didn’t, that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
