US Soldier Sentenced to 90 Years in Iraq Rape, Murder Case
A US soldier has been sentenced to ninety years in prison for his role in the rape of an Iraqi girl and the killing of her and her family. The soldier, Specialist James Barker, was sentenced one day after pleading guilty and agreeing to testify against four other suspects. Barker has admitted he raped the girl -- Abeer Kassem Hamza al-Janabi – while her parents and five-year old sister were herded into an adjoining room of their home and shot dead. Two other suspects –former soldier Steven Green and Sgt. Paul Cortez – raped Abeer before shooting her and burning her body in an effort to cover up their crime. At his hearing Thursday, Barker wept as he delivered a statement to the court. Barker said: "I want the people of Iraq to know that I did not go there to do the terrible things that I did. I do not ask anyone to forgive me today." Barker will be eligible for parole after twenty years.
I would have allowed that family's friends and relatives elect/hire a small gang to rape that punk's asshole until they felt satisfied, then execute him and light his corpse on fire. Or burn him while's he's still got a little life in 'im, depending on what the cornier concluded. Now that's fucking eye-for-an-eye justice. I thought the Americans were big on that? What's the deal?
