In an altercation between a Green Beret and a child rapist, the Army sided with the pedophile–and has ordered his “attacker,” a two-time Bronze star recipient, discharged from the Army.
Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland will be discharged by the U.S. Army by November 1st.
Martland, who has been decorated for his bravery in Afghanistan, reportedly heard from multiple sources that Abdul Rahman, an Afghan police commander, was keeping a 12-year-old boy hostage as a sex slave.
When he heard Rahman laughing about his rape of the pre-teen boy and shrugging the whole gruesome situation off, it was too much for Martland to handle–and he physically forced the pedophile police commander out of the military camp.
“I kicked him once in his ribcage after one of the body slams,” Martland explained. “I put my foot on his neck and yelled at him after one body slam, but did not kick or punch him in the face. I continued to body slam him and throw him for 50 meters until he was outside the camp.”
“While I understand that a military lawyer can say I was legally wrong, we felt a moral obligation to act.”
For the past few weeks, there have been multiple reports that the U.S. Army is looking the other way in light of claims that high-ranking Afghan officials are involved in child rape. They’ve claimed it’s a part of Afghan “culture.”
And, unfortunately, in this case the U.S. Army decided to side with pedophiles like Rahman once again–by ordering Martland’s discharge.
Martland had only this to say about his discharge:
“Kicking me out of the Army is morally wrong and the entire country knows it.”
Petitions are currently circulating to save Martland’s Army career.
