Securing America: Death Penalty Possible for Afghan Massacre
His alleged murder spree resulted in a temporary stop to combat operations in Afghanistan. Now, military prosecutors are asking for a court martial that could get an Army Staff Sergeant the death penalty.
FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal has more in our ongoing series on national security:
In Staff Sgt. Robert Bales’s Article 32 hearing in Washington state, military prosecutors said he committed heinous crimes, had a clear memory of what he did and knew it was wrong. His attorneys previously noted that Bales suffered a head injury in a previous tour and had received a screening at the Army’s Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic.
Testimony over the past week reveals that Bales had been drinking the night he allegedly killed 16 Afghanis – nine of them children. He tested positive for steroids a couple days afterward. He left the base that night, and when he came back, told a fellow soldier he’d shot some people, then left again and allegedly shot even more people in a different village.
