A $10 fine?

Lt Col James W. Weirick,
USMC (Ret)
Retired Marine Corps judge advocate James W. Weirick has written this op-ed about the startling outcome of a case in which a federal district judge imposed a ten dollar fine on a Marine who shot a Navy corpsman but was convicted only in civilian court and only of making a false official statement (that was soon recanted).

Did military justice fail the corpsman? If so, should someone have been held accountable?

See what you think, and feel free to comment (real names only, please).
