Pre-meditated murder for Sgt. Mayo:
A U.S. Army sergeant pleaded guilty to murder Monday in the deaths of four Iraqi prisoners in 2007, telling a military court that the slayings were “in the best interest of my soldiers.”
Sgt. First Class Joseph P. Mayo, 27, was sentenced to 35 years in prison and became the fourth soldier convicted in the killing of four Iraqi men in Baghdad in the spring of 2007. The prisoners were each shot in back of the head while handcuffed and blindfolded, then dumped into a canal, according to testimony at the U.S. Army’s Rose Barracks Courthouse in Vilseck, Germany.
Take a wild guess who else served with them in that unit. Here is a hint- they would never run over a dog, because that would just be wrong.
Such a tragic waste of life. The men they killed and their own lives, just gone.
