Soldier faces international scrutiny, death penalty

Posted On 14:12 by El NACHO 0 comments

Soldier faces international scrutiny, death penalty: "An Indiana soldier charged with murder is making international headlines. I-Team 8 investigated how the Indiana soldier is sitting within two of the more controversial aspects of the war in Afghanistan. It includes the controversy of the strained relationship between the U.S. and Afghan President Karzai and how the military treats soldiers with mental instability in the war zone.

Indiana soldier Pfc. David Lawrence faces the death penalty for killing a top Taliban commander in a prison cell last October. The I-Team 8 investigation however, begins a full month before the killing and a soldiers request for help.

Brett Lawrence, the step-father of David Lawrence remembers the first indication that something had gone wrong.

'A text message saying I am being charged with premeditated murder — 8:30 in the morning on a Wednesday,” Lawrence said."
