He also killed unarmed civilians and got away with that too.

But since he would have been pardoned anyway, I don't think it really mattered.

He's a real prize:

Another accusation was that Gallagher's sniper work during his 2017 deployment became indiscriminate, reckless, and bloodthirsty. He allegedly fired his rifle far more frequently than other snipers; according to testimony, the other snipers in the platoon did not consider him a good sniper, and he took "random shots" into buildings. Other snipers said they witnessed Gallagher taking at least two militarily pointless shots, shooting and killing an unarmed old man in a white robe as well as a young girl walking with other girls. Gallagher allegedly boasted about the large number of people he had killed, claiming he averaged three kills a day over 80 days, including four women. Gallagher also was reportedly known for indiscriminately spraying neighborhoods with rockets and machine gun fire with no known enemy force in the region.

A charge of obstruction of justice was brought against Gallagher for alleged witness intimidation. According to the claim, Gallagher allegedly threatened to kill fellow SEALs if they reported his actions. The Navy cited his text messages as attempting to undermine the investigation, with messages sent to "pass the word on those traitors", meaning cooperating witnesses, and to get them blacklisted within the special warfare community. This resulted in him being confined in the brig for a time with heavy restrictions on his ability to communicate, although this confinement was later lessened.

Gallagher was also charged with "nearly a dozen" lesser offenses.

A German Politician's Assassination Prompts New Fears About Far-Right Violence


".......Walter Lübcke, a 65-year-old member of the Christian Democratic Union and a staunch defender of Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door refugee policy, was shot in the head late at night on June 2 as he sat smoking on his terrace, according to German investigators. The confessed killer is an avowed neo-Nazi with a 20-plus-year history of violence against immigrants. But experts on extremism and some mainstream political leaders suggest the far-right, anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany political party shares at least some of the blame.

In recent German history, right-wing attacks have mostly targeted immigrants. The assassination of a prominent German politician is unprecedented,......

Protest still continues in Puerto Rico and now in New York.

Was watching NBC4 and in Puerto Rico, one concern woman is worried about violence and vandalism.  So far it's been relatively peaceful but vocal.  She should worry more about outsiders /anarchist / infiltrators i.e. Antifa not her fellow citizens.

German Man Killed With Sword by His Syrian Roommate [Graphic Video 18+]

The bloody incident was witnessed by dozens of local residents and took place after a heated argument between the two rapidly escalated. The cause of their dispute remains unknown.

A 28-year-old Syrian man living in Germany has stabbed his 36-year-old German-Kazakh roommate to death in broad daylight at the centre of a street in southern Stuttgart, police said in a statement. The perpetrator used a "sword-like" weapon, law enforcement reported, although some media outlets cited witnesses as seeing him armed with a machete.

According to eyewitnesses, the two men were arguing, with the suspected assailant repeatedly asking the victim "Why have you done that?" after which he grabbed the sword and stabbed his roommate. The reason for their conflict is still not known.


In several videos from the scene that have surfaced online, the attacker is seen stabbing the victim on the ground several times, then hacking off his arm and fleeing the scene.
