Edit, wait no first guess is right.

Like, I bet 500 on the Pats and the odds were 100/600 and I won 83 more vCash plus got my 500 back. Makes sense cause 500 is 5/6 of 600 and 83 is approx 5/6 of 100.

To put this into perspective, a man who shoots and murders two other men on the street and gets charged with murder would be facing a prison sentence. The media would fabricate him as a criminal, as a murderer, and as a villain which is plausible. Now if that same man had instead enlisted in the army, gone to a foreign country and murdered two other men on the street, it would go for the most part unnoticed as a crime. In-fact he would return to his home country and the media would fabricate him as a war-hero, rather than what he actually is, a war-criminal.

Any loopholes in this example? I wanna make sure I don't get called out on it if I say this lol.

I'm a little confused. Why would the media fabricate him as a war-hero if, in the previous sentence, you said it would go largely unnoticed?

And say instead of murder, you used r*pe. So the guy does this to two females, gets thrown in jail, charged, etc. Now, in the army, he does this to two civilian females. When he returns, would the media celebrate and call him a war-hero? If not, what is the difference between the two cases? Why in the first case, he's a war-hero, but in this case, he's suddenly not?

Personally, I don't think just because you are in the military people will react differently. An innocent person being harmed is an innocent person being harmed. Period.

There have been some notable cases where people frowned upon military actions, especially towards civilians. I think I read about an American soldier opening fire on Afghan civilians during the war -- he got charged and the media didn't cheer him as a war-hero.

Personally Rasky I wouldn't say that. There are a bunch of cases I believe against it and it can largely depend on someones opinion on how they fell on the matter.

Yeah, because he committed a war crime. I should've mentioned I guess that would be said right before I get into analyzing war crimes and criminals. Today the prosecution against those who commit crimes of war is far more efficient than it was 50 years ago. The concept of a war crime was barely existent before WWII. It basically all started with the Nuremberg Trials.

Unnoticed in the sense that he's a criminal. The media and public would commend him for fighting for our country, and ignore the other side of the spectrum. That even in combat crimes are committed. Again, I should have stated I guess that I would be talking about this as it relates to a time period where military soldiers were never indicted for what they did in war.

You would actually get charged for killing innocent civilians in a different country if you were in the Army.

Depends on who you are saying it too. Few assumptions I need to dispel. First, the media wont fabricate him as a villain, by shooting two other people in public he has done that to himself. I see your point though, yes the media will pounce on this case quickly.

No. If the man enlists in the army, and does not have orders to shoot, then he will be reprimanded for war crimes. Other factors: If he does have orders, is he killing other soldiers or is it civilians? He will be in big **** if its civilians. Second, is there a presence of a threat? Why is he shooting? Simply because he is trigger happy?

You need to be careful with this example. I see your point, but you might want to add some context. For example.

The man who kills two other men in the street in Toronto is a gangbanger, a drug peddling low life etc etc. That is when the media will truly "paint" someone a villain.

The soldier who kills to other men, if he kills other soldiers that there is open war on, or direct orders to shoot to kill then yes he will be glorified. If it is against civilians, it is POSSIBLE that it is forgotten by the media, but I think far more likely that he is in trouble. The catch 22 is, does the media ever get wind of it. Doubtful. The military has a tighter knit community than even the police, screw ups like that might happen and are not always leaked to the media.

They are saying only a dislocated ankle, no knee damage and injury isn't as serious as originally thought.
