Army Turning to Criminals to Help Keep Going

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on February 14th, 2007 10:28 am by HL

Desperate Military Filling It’s Ranks With Criminals!

Say Anything
WASHINGTON – The Army and Marine Corps are letting in more recruits with criminal records, including some with felony convictions, reflecting the increased pressure of five years of war and its mounting casualties.
The number of felony waivers granted by the Army grew from 411 in 2003 to 901 in 2006, according to the Pentagon, or about one in 10 of the moral waivers approved that year. Other misdemeanors, which could be petty theft, writing a bad check or some assaults, jumped from about 2,700 to more than 6,000 in 2006.
“The data is crystal clear. Our Armed Forces are under incredible strain and the only way that they can fill their recruiting quotas is by lowering their standards,” said Rep. Marty Meehan, D-Mass., who requested the information from the Pentagon. “By lowering standards, we are endangering the rest of our armed forces and sending the wrong message to potential recruits across the country.”

H.L.s Take “Join the Army if you fail”, that’s great, now we will have a bunch of guys that have prison records, how long until they start letting murderers over there. (I know I know) Pretty soon judges will be giving felons a choice: 20 years in the pen or 4 years in Iraq. They they will come back with battle fatigue after they were already criminals to start with. Then we will have a bunch of battle fatigued criminals running the streets. As Yakov Smirnov used to say (and probably still does) What a Country. Of course Bush can’t institute a draft, that would instantly add every young person between 16 and 35 to the anti-war movement, and the protests would make the ’60s look like a tea party.

    The first wave of the attack on Iran should come from the essays in LA! Ten big c-140 transport planes need to land in the city of Angels and pick up the cryps and the bloods. No need for them to enlist! The goverment could lie and tell them the Iranians were guarding an endless supply of crack cocaine! They just had to kill the supreme leader, and destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities! Yep 100,000 homeboys from the hood will do just fine! We could clean Compton and Hillside up dont you think H.L.??? I would love it! Radical islamic muslims vrs radical homeboys from the hood! Each hating Bush and each killing each orther over it!! With 20 million Texans laughing like they never laughed before!!! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    I will go fight for my country instead of going to prison. At least it will protect the cowards who will not join and give me a more positive future than prison. I have served my country on two tours in Iraq. Came home and was arrested in a drug conspiracy. My friends were selling dope while I was over seas and when I came back I was dragged in by association. I have no prior record or drug use, but conspiracy has a 98 percent conviction rate. Welcome to America
