  1. They absolutely should not be able to pay athletes under the table to hurt another teams players. The whole point to playing a sport is to improve your skill level while playing by the rules, if others are willing to follow the rules then they don’t deserve to be hurt. This is an act of selfishness which should not be tolerated what so ever.

  2. I don’t think they should do that for money.

  3. Yes, i believe that the trial should come back to the United States, they should get him out of there as soon as possible. He was in a horrible condition of major post traumatic stress from previous tours. They should not have passed him to take another tour to Afghanistan because it lead to this horrible action. The trial should be taken back and the government should deal with it in our own country not in Afghanistan.

  4. I think that the government could have the ability to change the prices , because they create almost everything else in the country .

  5. They are not allowed to vote in my view. If you aren’t in america then you are not voting. They should be allowed to at all.

  6. Yes, they should be able to vote. I think this because seems how all the other U.S. citizens can vote then they should be able to even though they aren’t located in the part of the U.S. where everyone else is.

  7. I dont know if they should be able to vote or not.

  8. i don’t think that having technology in school would make it better but i do think it would help some people if they did use technology in school but it might not help other in school

  9. I think what the marine should be taken out of Afghanistan for what he did cause he mite do it again

  10. I think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan. You can’t just kill people and not get in trouble for it. He should be tried in the United States because there would probably be a more harsh punishment here.

  11. Yes, i believe that the trial should come back to the United States, they should get him out of there as soon as possible. He was in a horrible condition of major post traumatic stress from previous tours. They should not have passed him to take another tour to Afghanistan because it lead to this horrible action. The trial should be taken back and the government should deal with it in our own country not in Afghanistan.

  12. They need to bring him back here because they don’t know what he’s capable of doing.

  13. yes i do think that this person should be sent back to the united states for what he has done by killing those 16 people i think that it should be held as soon as he gets back and i think he should go to prison just like a normal person should have too

  14. I think they should be transferred out of Afghan because they did their job. The trail should be held in Afghan because it happened there. He will be fine. He was just on a mad rampage. #KurtSwagCobain

  15. IN YOUR OPINION…do you believe that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan, the site in which he has allegedly murdered 16 civilians AND WHERE should his trial be held when charges are brought against him.
    Yes i do believe that he should be transferred out because the issue for him to still be there, even though he may not have done it people still think he did so they probably don’t want him to be there and they might even want to kill him for what they he did/ didn’t do. I think his trial should be there and here.

  16. I think it was fair that the Marine was transferred out of Afghanistan. It all depends though, was it legal or illegal? Were they threatening his life or was it just random? If it was part of his job and/or he was defending his life, then he was just doing his job. Killing that many people [on your own at one time] is never really alright though, so yeah, it was fair he was brought back to America.

  17. I do think that the U.S Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. I think that he is an idiot for killing 6 innocent civilians, so i think that the punishment should be held in the United states. Also because Everyone in Afghanistan probably hates that guy now.

  18. I do think that the U.S. military should have been transferred out like they did because they did as much as they could and i think that the shooting would of still went on even if they were still there. I think that the shooters trail should be held in a more civilized country near Afghanistan and his charges and consequences should be prison for a lifetime.

  19. I don’t think that the marines should leave Afghanistan. i also think that the troops should not leave until Afghanistan is ready for the marines to leave. the trials should be held in the U.S. because the Afghan trials would put him through thhing that I think would be a lot worse.

  20. I think that the United States Marine should move out of Afghanistan, and his trial should be held in America.

  21. i don’t think that the troops should be taken out of Afghanistan except for that one that shot all of the people. The terrorism will continue if we take all of the troops out.

  22. I think that he should be moved out of there by plane. that way we get him out of there fast and safe.also he can’t get off the plane if it’s in mid air. but i do think that the people of that country should have a say in what happens to him because he bib kill 16 people how did nothing wrong.

  23. I think that the us should take the guy to court or something and see why he killed all of those afghan people, i don’t think that the marines should be not be taken out because so that they can help the afghan people so that the talibans don’t try to take over Afghanistan,

  24. I believe that he should be tried in Afghanistan. This is because that if he is Afghanistan , They can use witnesses. But i do believe that after he is given his punishment details, he should be sent to the U.S to have his punishment done.

  25. This is a difficult question, considering the circumstances. I think that the Marine being transferred out of Afghanistan is both good and bad. It is safer without angry Afghans, but it is cheaper and easier to stay.
    I personally think that he should stay in Afghanistan for the trial. The trial should take place where the crime is committed. It is easier and cheaper for the U.S, and may prevent controversy.

  26. I don’t think he should be on trial!
    But scene i have no say in the matter i say he should be in the USA for trial and he should be transporter out of Afghanistan.

  27. They need to get him out of there. They don’t know what he’s capable of doing. He needs to be transfered back here and stay in prison for a long time. He’s there to serve the US Army. Not to do whatever he want.

  28. I think that he should be only transferred back to the US for his jail sentence. I also think that the Marine who committed this crime should return not return back to America for his trial. If someone not for the US commits an act of terrorism, they usually have their trial here. So, it should be the same for him.

  29. In my opinion the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. I don’t think that he should stay there because if it was him who did it then he needs to be transferred in case he tries it again. What he did was wrong because even if you don’t like people it doesn’t mean that you can take their life. His trial should be held in a court when his charges are brought to him.

  30. I think that the marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. And his trial should be held in the United States because nobody knows what the Afghan people will do to him if he does a trial in Afghanistan.

  31. I think what the marine should be taken out of Afghanistan for what he did. It was wrong and it sets a bad example for the United States. He should be sentenced to life in prison. The rest of the marines should stay there though. The trials should be held in America because in Afghanistan it would be unfair because they would be more mad for what he did.

  32. i think he should be charged but he should be brought back to the us and i think that hes should just do jail time because that’s kinda why he is over there but he might have thought they were going to kill him or do something bad

  33. In my opinion I believe that the US Marine should not be transferred out of Afghanistan, the site where he killed the 16 Afghans. His trail should be held in Afghanistan because that is where he killed the 16 people. He should also have one back in the US because he is a US citizen and in the army.

  34. I do totally think he should be removed. What disgusts me, however, is that Obama and gov are calling for his execution. Yes, this is terrible. But so is the terrorist who killed a bunch of people. The disgusting part is that they refuse to call the terrorist a terrorist. They also call his killing of american people a, get this, WORK RELATED INCIDENT! And they even are forstalling his trial. I am not saying that what the terrorist did is worse, both are equally horrible. The fact that they are trying to imedietly execute the american and call the terrorist incident a work-related incident is the terrible part. I am done with my rant, thanks for reading.

  35. I think the soldier that killed the 16 people should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he killed innocent people with no reasoning.I think he should be put on trial in the U.S,unless the Afghans want to hold the trial their because that is where the killing happened.

  36. I think it should be held in the United States. He should have to suffer in prison for killing 16 civilians.

  37. I think they should stay to keep the people safe in case the guy strikes again. When he is trialed it should be in the U.S. because we will make sure he gets what he deserves.

  38. I think that they should not have shipped him out because he shows that he has the guts to kill people and half of the people who are in the military are too afraid to even take a shot. Plus they didn’t even find out his reasoning. So it could have been for a worthy cause though not likely. But when they have his trial, it should be in America so it is a jury of peers, not a jury of people who already despise him.

  39. I think that the Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan , even though that is where his trial will most likely be held ; i don’t believe that he deserves to be there because of the crime that he committed . I also think it should be held here in the Untied States because of what Afghanistan would do to him, because of the crime he committed there. He killed their own members and would probably treat him worse than anyone else .

  40. I think that the soldier should be tried in Afghanistan. He killed Afghan soldiers he should be tried by the Afghan people. It is not fully up to us to decide his fate. We can have a say in it but Afghanistan gets the majority of control.

  41. I think they should take him out of Afghanistan. Its not right to kill 16 civilians, they are just innocent people caught up in the war. I would feel in danger if i was a civilian in Afghanistan, knowing that other Marines could possibly kill civilians. I think his trial should be back in the U.S so he can get a far trial, rather than a biased one.

  42. I think that the marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because if he were to get out again he could go and kill even more people. It makes sense to keep him away from where he committed the crime so that he doesn’t commit another one. I think that his trial should be held somewhere in the U.S. since that is where he is from and is where he will most likely go to prison.

  43. I think that the United States Marine should stay there because he might keep doing what he is doing. His trial should be held in America.

  44. I think that the soldier should be transferred back to the U.S for safety purposes. It is safer for his trial to be held here, in Afghanistan he would most likely get a harsher punishment. I understand the Afghan peoples hate towards this soldier but they still should be extremely grateful that America is there fighting for them in the first place.

  45. I think that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. I also think that his trial should be held in America.

  46. IN YOUR OPINION…do you believe that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan, the site in which he has allegedly murdered 16 civilians AND WHERE should his trial be held when charges are brought against him.

  47. I believe that the soldier should have to be tried in Afghanistan. He killed 16 of their citizens so they deserve to see how guilty he is. I think that America should have a part in the trials. However, Afghanistan should have the majority of control.

  48. I think that what the U.S marine did was bad and i think that the marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he was a U.S solider so he is a U.S problem, we shouldnt have to leave him there and have them try and deal with him. But i think that his trial should be here as well because it is the U.S’s problem.

  49. i believe the american soldier should be transferred out of Afghanistan and his trial should be in america because the afghans will just shoot the soldier as soon as they see him if he goes to trial in Afghanistan.

  50. I think that the marine should be transferred out of the country back to the U.S.then he should go to a military court and see if he had problems and if not he should serve a life time with no perrole.

  51. I think they should of took him out of Afghanistan because if they have the trial in afghan who knows what they will do to them. if he killed 16 people he would of probably kill more if he had the chance.

  52. I think that the soldier should be transferred back to the U.S for safety purposes. It is safer for his trial to be held here, in Afghanistan he would most likely get a harsher punishment. I understand the Afghan peoples hate towards this soldier but they still should be extremely grateful that America is there fighting for them in the first place. Kameron Dewulf is hot.

  53. I think that they should go to wherever they need to be, like, whoever needs the most help right now. That’s what they should be doing.

    • Just kidding about that last comment.
      I think that the guy who killed so many people should have a trial and let him explain himself, and then punish him either way. So he can atleast have something to say, and he still gets punished. He should be punished where ever he killed the people.

  54. Yes, I think that he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he is a danger to the citizens there. If he stayed, he could hurt other people. I think he should be sent home until his trial is held.

  55. yeah i think that he should leave because if he killed 16 civilians then he should be punished and have charges pressed against him(:

  56. They shod be able to go to where they need to give help to needs it

  57. I do believe that the guy should get moved out of Afghanistan because there is probably people there that want to kill him and he would be safe if he got out of there. I don’t think that he should have a trial.

  58. I think that the man that killed 16 civilons should be punished in america because he is a soldger fighting for our country and he did that when he souldnt and its our resposibilty to take care of the problem and not theres and they might hav unfair trials in afganastan and not give them any rights and end up hanging him witch is cruel punishment when he dserves to suffer in jail the rest of his life instead of just dieing and getting out of his punishment

  59. i think that they should be brought back if he already killed that many people, there is no point in them staying there and they have just been there so long.

  60. I think that the solider should be transferred because its not right that he kills people that aren’t fighting, they should transfer him before he kills anymore people that are inanest.

  61. I think they should be transferred out of there and find a better plan before some other people get killed and maybe if the u.s military or marine force plan an attack and stop the war maybe that would so much easier then staying there and waiting to get commands even though it might be a lot of money to get shipped back out to sea or where in Afghanistan they were but they should make up a better plan.

  62. I believe that it was wrong for him to go and do that and it is pretty obvious that he ment to do it because you don’t just randomly kill sixteen people. I think that he should have to be tried in Afghanistan for what he did.

  63. I do think that the soldier should be transferred because it isn’t right to kill people that aren’t fighting against you, even if we are in a war with them. His trial should be held in Afghanistan because that is where he killed those people and the people of that country should have the right to choose what happens to him.

  64. i think that its a good idea that he was transferred out because if hes there then he might be in danger because people might try to kill him for what he did. i think the trial should be in the united states because again its dangerous for him to be there after what he did, and they are still mad about the burning of the Korans,

  65. I do think that they should move the soldier out of Afghanistan. If he has killed 16 civilians already for no reason what says he won’t kill more. By sending him out, we are not only protecting Afghanistan but our reputation too. I think that the trial should be held here. If it were to be held out there it probably wouldn’t be fair, but then again Ii doubt it will be here either.

  66. His trial should be held here in the U.S. and I think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan in case he is innocent then he will be out of danger.

  67. i think if he did murder the people then he should be transferred. his trial should be held in both that country and america in a joined court.

  68. Yes, I think that Marine should be dealt with here in U.S. and be punished through Military laws because he probably invaded and broke plenty of them. However, I don’t think it would be right to allow Afghan’s people and government to choose his punishment, because they could make them too harsh, like condemn him to death, rather than sending him to jail.

  69. Yes i think he should be transferred because the afghan people will kill him and hate him if stays over there. I think his trail should be held in the United States because of rage that the Afghans are going through with him.

  70. I think that the U.S marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. The trial should be held somewhere in the United States.

  71. I think that he should be trialed in Afghanistan because that was where the crime was committed and which means the trial should be there as well.

  72. i think he should be moved out of Afghanistan because if he stays there then the Afghanistan people could hurt or try to kill him. and they the trials should be held in the U.S.

  73. In my opinion, I think the troops should be able to go where ever they need to to gain their strength because it is their job. But they should also stay just in case they need the troops and they might continue what he is doing. They really just need to stay there to stop him from what he is doing to all of us.

  74. I think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he already murdered 16 people so chances are that he’ll murder more people. His trial should be held in the United States because that is his home country.

  75. In my opinion he SHOULD have been taken out and be tried in a non bias country where he has a fair chance of being guilty or not because if he was tried in afgan he would probably be deamed Guilty….even tho he is but he still needs a fair trial

  76. Yes the us marine needed to leave and transferred out and need to be put some were, where he can’t hurt anyone.

  77. I think that the U.S. marine should be punished for his actions. Killing 16 innocent people without the consent of the government is wrong. He should be transferred out of Afghanistan and imprisoned here in the United States, being a U.S. citizen, he should also receive U.S. punishment.

  78. I feel the marine should be brought to America for he is serving the american government and should be tried here

  79. he should stay for awile longer than leave .they should held the trials in afganastan so the people there can see him go threw it.

  80. i do believe that he should be transferred because he supposedly killed 16 innocent people. Even if he was part of the Marines, he still killed people and that’s inexcusable. I believe his trial should be held in America, because everyone knows that in 2nd world countries they trial Americans harder than needed.

  81. The U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan and kidnapped by the military and skirted off to a desert somewhere where he is horrible lost. Then give him a fair trial if he survives the desert.

  82. They should give him an american trial instead of facing their justice because they would either water board him to death or just shoot him, here he would have a fair trial. Plus what he did was not nearly as bad compared to what they do to our people but as soon as one of ours dose something its horrible.

  83. i think that the guy that killed the 16 people should be sent home. i think this way because he did it for know reason.

  84. Yes, i do think the Marine should be transferred back out of Afghanistan but should be put right into jail. I think his trial should be held in Afghanistan so he can possibly have a more harsh punishment and hopefully get a very very long time in jail because there was no reason for him to kill the 16 people that he did.

  85. In my opinion I think that he should be transferred because he killed 16 people. It doesn’t matter if he was in the Marines, he still killed innocent people. It should be held in the United States.

  86. In my opinion i don’t think they the marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he probably didn’t know they they were unarmed civilians. I think that they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I think that his trial should be in the U.S because the Afghanistan government and people think that also had something to do with the burning of the Koran.

  87. I think that it was a good idea that they moved the U.S. marine out of there because if they didn’t he might kill more people and right now its not a good idea to make the Afghanistan people more inclined to attack the U.S. his trial should be held in Afghanistan because that’s where he did the crime and it needs to be fair to the too

  88. I don’t really know what the Marine should do. I think it should be up to the Afghanistan people. If they want to have the court case in there country then let them have it. But if they don’t want to have the Marine in there country then they should take him out. Personally I would want him out of my country but it should be up the the Afghanistan people. Also the U.S. should let Afghanistan people help decide his punishment and they should be able to know his final punishment.

  89. well i think that this war should not have been done in the frist place i dont like when we to wars were not need for the us so i think that we should move ever one out

  90. I think that the U.S. marine should be punished for his actions. Killing 16 innocent people without the consent of the government is wrong. He should be transferred out of Afghanistan and imprisoned here in the United States, being a U.S. citizen, he should also receive U.S. punishment.

  91. No, she should not be transferred out of Afghanistan. He should be held for trial where he did the crime or else it is not fair. There should be some serious charges against him.

  92. I think that that he should stay in the countrie where he commited the crimes, he did not commit them in the U.S so why should he come here? I think that he should have to stay where ever the Afghanistan government wants him to, even if its no the best place,

  93. I believe that he should be taken out of Afghanistan or have to leave if he killed 16 people he should be punished.

  94. I think that it should be held in America but i also think that people in Afghanistan should have a say in it too. I think it is right with what they do to him because that could have made them mad enough to go and start another war.

  95. I think that the Marine should be deported from Afghanistan, although, that may be what he was after. he may have been trying to go home and stay alive like a coward. I think that his trial should be held in a dessert in the middle of nowhere, after getting kidnapped and blindfolded by the military. He should pay for what he did, and as a punishment, he should not be discharged, by given a tough job that no one wants to do.

    PS, nleubwa lew xiik lbs swawecw ri vw ewaowxrws.

  96. I think they should just go to wherever they have to go. Maybe it shouldn’t be in Afghanistan.

  97. I think that they should transfer him out of Afghanistan, because if he stays there he can hurt even more people.But if he comes to the U.S. he can hurt people here to. He needs to be put in a place were he can’t escape.

  98. I think the U.S. marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because it was his decision to start the shooting so he should be held responsible.And his trial should be held in the United States since they transferred him out.

  99. The US marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan, and his trial should be held here in the united states.

  100. Yes i think that he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he killed people and in order to put a stop to it. And i think his trial should be held somewhere that will punish him for what he did.

  101. I don’t think that the Marines should be sent out to Afghanistan. We already have troops out there and I don’t think that they need to endanger anyone else by sending more people out there.

  102. I think the marine that killed 16 Afghanistan’s should be punished for what they did because we don’t want other countries to think that we have to control over our people and because it was just wrong for the marine to do that. The trail that decides what happens to him should be in America, because how we punish our men should be our business and not another countries.

  103. I think that the US mariner should not be moved out of his station because it will allow him to think about his actions. The way his fellow mariners treat him will drive home the fact that what he did was wrong and uncalled for. I think that the trial should be held somewhere outside of Afghanistan and the US that way there is no favoritism shown. It should be held in a place where it would be fair for the US mariner and the Afghanistan people

  104. I think the Marine should be transferred out. It’s thought that he had several mental problems during this incident. More than this, the Afghans are not going to want to treat him fairly. They could put him to death by stoning. We will have to have him stand to a military tribunal to determine the circumstances of the killings, and the consequences he must face.

  105. I definitively think he should be taken out of Afghanistan and be in a high security prison.

  106. No I don’t think he should. He could be in danger or whatever.

  107. I think his trial should be local, for witnesses and I think he should be token out of afghan and to the U.S. and be watched by the military, until this thing gets settled.

  108. I think that it should be held in Afghanistan because the people want to see him get brought to justice they don’t want to hear it they want to see it and know that he got punished for what he did. The tensions are strong right now and to help it settle a little would be to give what the Afghans want.

  109. i think that they should hold the trial in afganistan becuase if he did it then he should face the music.

  110. In my opinion i think that the U.S marine should be kicked out of the marines. What he did was unprofessional and to keep in the Marines is stupid, he could do it again and they wouldn’t be able to stop. They should take away his gun and have him checked out. I don’t know where the trial should be, it should probably involve both countries though, since it happened at Afghanistan and it was done by a U.S soldier. So they should find a way that they can all put their two cents in and decide together what they should do with him.

  111. i think that it is good the U.S solider was transferred out of of Afghanistan because there would be attempts on his life, but i do think the trial should be held in Afghanistan because that’s were the crime took place.

  112. I believe that he should not be allowed in Afghanistan. What he did was obviously a bad thing, so he shouldn’t be allowed on that ground. His “trial” should be held in Afghanistan because that’s where the crime took place.

  113. I think his trial should be held in Afghanistan because that is where the alleged crime was taken place. He shouldn’t be transferred out of Afghanistan so he can await trial there.

  114. Yes, I believe he should be transferred out of Afghanistan. If he stays there, and breaks out of where he is held, he could go kill once more. He should be moved to a higher security prison where he won’t be able escape. He killed innocent people and people don’t want that happening again. So hopefully this works if they do this.

  115. I think that he should be taken out of Afghan. for trial. I believe his trial should be held in the United States.

  116. I think that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because a lot of people have died there and I don’t really know why they’re even there. I don’t know.

  117. I think that they should really think about taking him out of Afghanistan and deporting him someplace else. He is putting so many people in danger by just being there. He has also killed many innocent civilians.

  118. I think the Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. To go kill 16 people without the concent of the United States Government or Military is wrong.

  119. yes, i think the U.S. marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan for killing 16 innocent civilians. i think he should be moved to a higher quality prison so he cant escape.

  120. I believe that the U.S. soldier should be tried in Afghanistan because the crime was not committed in the U.S. If the U.S. decides to deal with this in america then a small rebellion or war could brake out.

  121. I believe that the U.S Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because what he did was wrong. I think it’s embarrassing to the people in the U.S Marine and the united states because they are going over to Afghanistan to fight for our country and to shoot innocent people for no apparent reason is ridiculous. I think his trial should be in the united states because I don’t think he should be in that country any longer and have the people there in fear.

  122. yes i think he should be sent home because that is just cruel for him to do that to them because what did they do to him. i think he should be trialed there because he would deserve what ever he gets.

  123. I don’t think he should be transferred but I think they need to teach him not to kill innocent civilians, but if he chooses to keep killing civilians, he should be transferred out and put in Alcatraz. But I think he should be in America for his trial.

  124. I think the U.S Marine that killed the 16 Afghan civilians should be punished for his actions. The 16 people were innocent and didn’t deserve to be hurt/killed. If an Afghan soldier killed 16 innocent Americans, we would all want justice. Its no different for them, and they want him to be punished for his actions, which I agree with.

  125. i think what the marine did could be right or it could be wrong. it all depends on how you look at it. if he was attacked by them then he has a right to shoot them. also another thing to look at is the mental health of the marine. when your used to being in war for years then you may be on the edge and nervous when anything small happens. and also if he is under a lot of stress he may make irrational decision. i think that his trial should be held in the united states because he is a us marine.

  126. i think that they should take him out of Afghanistan because if he killed 16 innocent people why would they let him stay. his trial should be held in Afghanistan because that is where the crime happened and they should be able to decide what happens to him because if that were to happen in the U.S from a soldier anywhere else in the world we wouldn’t let then go out of the U.S and have his trial we would have it here.

  127. I think the criminal should stay at the scene of the crime. I also believe that because his crimes were against the Afghan people, they should be in charge of his trial.

  128. I think that he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because the shooting of civilians has to stop if we want to stay there with no troubles. If we don’t do something about it soon then we will have problems with other civilians later down the road. Having tension in Afghanistan while our soldiers are in there is not good and could be stressful on them. This soldier should be pulled from Afghanistan and should be militarily charged for his actions.

  129. I think that more investigation need to be done on the marine and why he “killed” all those people. They should do a physiological background check on him. Its just weird that a U.S. Marine would just go out and kill random people for no reason.

  130. I think that he shouldn’t be transferred out of Afghanistan he needs to face the punishment that Afghanistan gives him. In the United States if you live in Michigan I commit a crime in Ohio they don’t send him to Michigan for his trial, he faces the punishment Ohio gives him. Also I don’t worry about him being killed because again if you commit a crime in Ohio and your from Michigan Ohio has the death penalty so
    its not like this isn’t something new that has been going on.

  131. yes, because then the marines can arrest the marine for killing 16 people without a motive for it.

  132. I believe that the U.S. solider should be transferred back home and be brought for a U.S. government. The U.S. government should take care of the unfit solider that shot 16 civilians.

  133. I think the guy that shot all the people did it out of anger. but that still is a terrible think and he was just being dumb and immature. But i guess he is now going back home and will probably get tried.

  134. What the marine did was wrong and irresponsible. He should definitely be transferred out of Afghanistan because if he stays in the area where he killed the civilians they could try and get revenge. His trial should be back in america but kept silent because as Americans we don’t want to be known as the country who just attacks innocent civilians.

  135. I think his trial should be held in the United States because this is where he is from. In Afghanistan, he would be executed with no question. I just think he should be jailed for 5 years or so.

  136. i think he should be removed from Afghan because we don’t want him killing any more people. Hes trial should be tried in the U.S. because he is one of our men.

  137. i think he should be transferred out because he killed inoccent people and he might do this again

  138. I strongly believe that he should have been transferred out of Afghanistan because the people who live their would kill and torture him. his trial should be held here in the U.S. so the marine gets a fair trial and not have it staked against him.

  139. I believe he should be transferred for what he did, and a life sentence in prison. that was wrong to shoot those civilians. the afghans were very mad that the solider would do that. This loses trust and respect through Afghan civilians.

  140. I think that the US marine should have his trial in Afghansitan. If I were an afghan citizen, I would feel helpless and like I had no power but if the Marines fate relied on me I would definitely feel like I wasn’t be ran by someone else. I also think that if the trial occurs in Afghanistan, he should be held in prison there rather than in the US.

  141. Yes I think that he should be tooken out of Afghanistan and trialed in the us because he would have different punishments in the us.

  142. well i think that if we are wanted in Afghanistan we should stay. but if we are not wanted in there country then we shouldnt stay. and after the burning and the shooting i think its clear that we are not wanted to help them so why keep soldiers away from there familys.

  143. in my opinion i believe that the U.S. marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan and sent to jail for killing 16 innocent civilians.his trial should be held near Guantanamo bay. He may have caused Afghanistan to try and attack the U.S.

  144. I believe they shouldn’t be transferred out of Afghanistan because they protect our country, and keep us safe. Even though they should come home due to family issues and things like that. It should be held in the USA

  145. Yes i do think he should be transported out of Afghanistan, what he did was wrong and he should no longer be there. He should go to the strictest court there is in the U.S. Get court mashalled and found guilty.

  146. I believe that they should not leave him in Afghanistan but when his trial comes they should take him to Afghanistan to be tried.

  147. He should be trialed in the military form because he is of the military, he should also be kept out of Afghanistan in case he wants to kill more people.

  148. I think it should be held in the US because that is where the soldier is from, and in Afghanistan, he would probably be executed with no question.

  149. I think that he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because of the murder that he has done and i think that he should hold his trial in Afghanistan because they have different laws and rules unlike the United States of America.

  150. I think what the U.S. marine did was wrong. It embarrasses the United States, those actions are not like us at all. I think that he should be tried in Afghanistan or wherever the Afghans want. If a foreign soldier did that to our civilians we’d probably go into war or have a big problem and debate about it. To prevent further problems we should bring the soldier back after being tried. I personally think he should receive a life-time sentence in prison. That’s what happens when you murder someone in the United States. A murder is a murder, no matter what ethnicity, race, religious beliefs or anything like that. He murdered 16 innocent civilians, so I believe he should receive a fair punishment.

  151. The U.S Marine should have his court ruling in the U.S if it took place over seas. The Marine should be charged as a soldier to, not as a civilian.

  152. I think that the U.S should be transferred out of Afghanistan. The U.S is suppose to be there to improve the living of Afghan people. When he is trialed, he should be trialed in Afghanistan. He took sixteen lives for no reason. It would be no different if a terrorist here were to kill sixteen people and trialed here; which is what the U.S does.

  153. In my opinion I don’t think the U.S marines should be transferred out of Afghanistan but the guy who shot the 16 people should be transferred out and severely punished because that was wrong and uncalled for. His trail should be in the United States where they can actually like punish him or even put him in jail!!

    yeaaahhhh budddyyyyy<3

  154. I strongly believe that he should have been transferred out of Afghanistan because the people who live their would kill and torture him. his trial should be held here in the U.S. because i herd from another source he had a head injury after his Humvee tipped over causing brain damage, and afghans would not understand, they would just want him dead.

  155. I think the marine should be tried away from Afghanistan because if the case was in Afghanistan, it would cause more tension. People might be unhappy with the judgement, and that might anger the Taliban into more violence. I think the marine should be tried before a military tribune and not a civilian court. The trial should be held in a secure location, like a U.S. embassy or military base. The crime was unnecessary murder of innocent civilians and should be punished to the full extent of the law.

  156. yes they should move him out of Afghanistan because the US has higher security and if he escapes he will just go out and kill some more people.

  157. I think the soldier should be transfered out to be trialed in court, all we know is that he killed the civilians,not why, it could have been provoked or maybe he just shot them, and in that case he should be trialed and charged if the judge/jury believe he should be.

  158. I think that the soldier should be transferred out and be trialed in court. But we need to take into consideration that he could have been defending himself or he was being antagonized and he lost it and shot them. I think he should be trialed in court.

  159. I don’t think that the marine should be transferred because it was a crime he committed in the afghans country, so they should have the right to see the trial. The people of Afghanistan wouldn’t want a man who spilled Innocent blood on their home land to go run away to his.

  160. I think the trial should be in the united states so there is no unfair punishments. the marine should be taken back to the united states so he doesnt do anything else. he is a danger to the afghans and to his fellow marines. he is an unreliable soldier and should be treated accordingly.

  161. I think the soldier should be transferred out of Afghanistan until they find out the reason why he killed the 26 people. If he is transferred out then he won’t have the opportunity to go out and hurt more people. Although i think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan i do think that the trail should be held there. It the trial is held in Afghanistan then they also need to make sure that it is fair in both Afghanistan and the US.

  162. I think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan back to the U.S were he is less of a threat to the people and to try and put this event behind the people in Afghanistan. He is a U.S citizen and he should be charged with U.S charges and be charged by the military. We need to get him out of there and stop talking about this stuff to try and put it behind us so we can build a better relationship with the Afgan people.

  163. I think that he should be transferred out because he went on a rampage and killed 16 people. Its murder. I think charges should be held in Afghanistan because that is where the crime was committed and it was against afghans. He should be kicked out of the military.

  164. i do believe that the U.S. marine that allegedly killed 16 Afghan civilians should be tried and transferred. in the U.S. because he is in the U.S. marines and was technically supposed to live under the laws of the U.S. and possibly the afghan trial might be unfair compared to a U.S. trial.

  165. I think that the marine should not be transferred, and he should be tried for his crime in Afghanistan. I feel this way because if an Afghan troop had done this in America, we would certainly try him here so he gets what he deserves. It is only fair that Afghanistan does the same thing. It is their people that got killed, not ours. Also, I don’t think that a marine would just go on a killing spree, so I feel that there must have been some secret reason. Possible it was an undercover job or something. I would need to know more to be 100% about my opinion, and I think that Afghanistan needs to find out more before they try him.

  166. The marine was either trying to make himself feel good about himself, or sickly out of his mind, and should be sent out as planned, and put in jail for a while, to think deeply of how sick it is to think about harming and killing innocent people.

  167. He should be charged in Afghanistan, no he should not be transferred out, then he will be able to kill other people in America. He may not, I think it was retaliation of the Afghan people. Then after the charges bring him to America for a higher security prison.

  168. I believe the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he could try to go out and kill more people if he stays there. I honestly think his trial should be held in Afghanistan BUT with U.S. jury on the premises to make sure it is fair to both countries.

  169. I do believe that he should be transferred out just for safety reasons. Iraq and United States are trying to patch up a war that has droughted the two countries for several years and if they create another argument over this it will ruin a lot of the progress. I believe that if trials are held it would be fair to have him face trials in Afghan, but i believe the rulings may be unfair to this marine because of what country he is in.

  170. I do believe the marine should be taken out of Afghanistan because he could cause greater problems and make the Afghanistan’s even more mad at the Americans. I don’t believe he should be charged with anything if it was accidental but i just believe he should never go back to Afghanistan again.

  171. In my opinion I think he should be transferred, at least until everything cools down. It wouldn’t be an insult to him, just there are a lot of arguments around it and the group is threatening Americans lives. I think the trial should be held here in America because he was a U.S. troop.

  172. Recently, A U.S. Sergeant stationed in Afghanistan killed 16 civilians of the country allegedly. This man was recently transferred out of the country back to the U.S. I think it is good that he was transferred out of the country because it’s hard to say whether or not this was the only one of plans to kill Afghan citizens. Since the crime was against Afghans, but the man was from America, I think the ideal situation would be a trial involving both countries. However, since that is not realistic, I think the trial should be held in Afghanistan because it was a crime against their citizens. I also hope this event doesn’t cause worse relations between the U.S. and Afghanistan.

  173. I think that he should be transferred out because it is too dangerous to do the trial in Afghanistan, he should do the trial in the U.S. where it is a lot safer.

  174. I don’t think the soldier should be shipped out of Afghan for his crime. If an Afghan soldier had done this in america we’d want to be the ones who tried him and gave him his punishment, I believe that Afghan should be given this same right. I believe that he should be kept in Afghan and tried there.

  175. I think that he should be transferred out because the afghans might want to kill him. I think that his trial should be held in the us.

  176. I think that he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he murdered 16 civilians and his trial should be held well it doesnt matter unless there is a trial held. And he should be charged for murder. There was no need to kill 16 civilians.

  177. A U.S. military solider had shot 16 afghan civilians some days ago. We are not sure what the reasons were but no matter what, I think this solider should be shipped out of Afghanistan and be charged with murder in the U.S. The military does not need this nonsense.

  178. I think he hould be flew to the u.s and set on trial for what he has done.

  179. i think that he should not be transferred and should stay where he is and i think that he should have his trial in Afghanistan.

  180. I also think he should be sent somewhere they will need to go because he should had a bit of punishment

  181. In my opinion the soldier should be transferred out of Afghanistan, because he killed civilians in their country, and just because it is an enemy country there are still regular people there who don’t deserve to die for mo reason. I think that he should be brought back to the US and have his trial here, because there he might have a worse punishment because they are very angry at him because he killed people there

  182. I do think he should have been transferred out of Afghanistan because your not just suppose to kill harmless civilians. I don’t think they were doing anything to harm anyone else so i think he should have been transferred. I think his trial should be here in the US and i think he should be kicked out of the Marines as his punishment.

  183. i believe he should be tried by both countries, so it is fair to both sides. and yes he should be tfransfered out of afganistan, but not out of the middle east. at the very least we must recognize that taking him out of the middle east could be seen as an act of defending him.

  184. Well i would say that it depends on if he actually did kill them. His trial should be held in Afghanistan. He should be taken out of Afghanistan and have a trial. Allegedly doesn’t mean he did do it.

  185. I think the us marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because they could try to kill him because he kill there people. I think that the trial should be held in the U.S. because he should be brought out of that country. And our government should back him up because they sent him over there and if they turned against him it would be bad.

  186. I do think they should have been transferred out of Afghanistan. You don’t go into someones country and go kill people? Like what if Afghanistan came into our country and started killing some of our people? They are people, with their own rights too. Just like we are. We should not be going over there killing them. Its not our job. And its not right.

  187. I don’t think so, they didn’t say of the civilians were a threat so something could of happened and he needed to shoot them to protect his life. I really don’t care what happens to him or where is trail is taken place.

  188. In my opinion I think the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he has murdered 16 people. Trials, I think should be held in Afghanistan because that is where the incident happened.

  189. I think he should be transferred out of Afghanistan. 16 people is a lot of people to kill by yourself and should be charged.

  190. I think that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because of what he did. But i think he should be able to go back because he is servings our country. I think that he should take some time off. If he dose get charge with this his trail should be in Washington just because that is were the White House is. And that’s were they are most strong at.

  191. Yes, the marine should be transferred if the people he killed were civilians and not Afghan troops. He should be tried in either Afghanistan or America for 16 counts of murder. It doesn’t matter if he was a marine or if the people he killed were Afghans. He killed them and they were not the ones he was sent to kill.

    • Do you think it makes a different where he is tried? Should he have the option of a trial in America? Would a foreign military person in America have the option to be sent home?

  192. He should be transferred out and sent to jail immediately so he doesn’t kill anyone over here. His trial should be in Afghanistan so when he comes here he can go to jail sooner.

  193. I think that the Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he did kill 16 insistent people and before he hurts anyone else.

  194. I think that the Marine who had shot 16 civilians should be severely punished. These people are civilians and they should be treated with some if not full respect. Just because these people are from a different country doesn’t mean that they are not people. A Marine is a very powerful respected person, however when they go out and do something like this they should pay. Not only does that make Marines look bad, but when they just say he can come back, that makes all of the U.S. look bad. This disappoints me that this Marine can just go around shooting innocent civilians and then walk out and go home. I think they should have to be punished in a severe way and maybe have to stay and help the families there or something. I respect Marines, but only the ones that fight for our country, not make it look bad.

  195. i think that the U.S Military should be transferred out of Afghanistan because they killed 16 civilians and that number can still go up if the Military is still their i Afghanistan.I think the Trial should be held in Afghanistan so the people that killed the civilians can have a harder punishment.

  196. I think that he should get transferred out of Afghanistan because he killed 16 civilians, but at the same time i don’t think he should be transferred out. I think that his trial should be held in the United States because hes from the United States.

  197. Yes i do think the solider should get transferred out of Afghanistan, If your going to kill 16 people just because you felt like it, Then yeah you should get transferred out of Afghanistan. his trial should be held in Afghanistan because it is where the incident occurred.

  198. Yes he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because Taliban might try to attack and that would kill U.S officials. The trial should be held in Afghanistan because that were they are and they shouldn’t hold the trial until the figure everything out

  199. I think the soldier should be transferred out of Afghanistan because one: If I was a citizen there, i would want to kill him, and two: He needs to be put on an immediate trial. The trial should be held in the U.S. because here, there is no one to threaten him while a punishment is being decided. I definitely think he should get a dishonorable discharge, for his crimes in Afghanistan.

  200. Yes, I do think the U.S Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he killed 16 innocent people and they don’t want it happening again. It also make Americans look bad because one person did that they might think were all like that. I think his trial will be held in the U.S sepreme court, so they can decide his fate for what he did.

  201. I think he should be brought back to the United States, because he has murdered many Innocent civilians and deserves to be pressed charges. His trial should be in the United States not Afghanistan.

  202. I beleive that he should have been transferred out of Afghanistan. i think where his trial is being held is just fine every one has to face their problems once and awhile.

  203. It depends on if the civilians started it or not and he was forced to fight back but if the soldier just opened fire on them then he should be taken out of Afghanistan. His trial should be held in supreme court.

  204. I think that the u.s marine should be brought back. He has already been over there for so long, and if 16 people already died for apparently no reason why should we let him stay there and kill more people? I don’t know where the trial should be held but it should be dealt with severely.

  205. Yes I think the U.S Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because he killed 16 Afghans and should be removed ASAP. I also think the trial should be held in the U.S because they cant punish hi as bad in Afghanistan.

  206. I agree that this U.S. marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. I think he should be transferred because it wouldn’t be safe for him in Afghanistan and could be killed while awaiting trial. I think his trial should be held in the U.S. even though that happened in Afghanistan.

  207. I think that they should be transferred out of Afghanistan the reason is that they shouldn’t be killing people that live there it is really wrong. And I know that they were trying to send people back with there family’s anyways. We had more die in the past 16 years. His trial should be held in Afghanistan. That is were it happened.

  208. i think that he might have had a reason to shooting civilians. he might have bean in danger and i don’t think he should be triad and if he is he should be triad on the us soil because he is one of the many how is fight to give people their rights

  209. yes he should be transferred out of Afghanistan because the Taliban might try to attack the man and kill many u.s officials. the trails should be held in Afghanistan but not until they get this whole thing figured out

  210. I do not believe that the U.S. Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. The site may have killed a few people, but in all, we have had more people die than just 16 in these past few years. His trial should be in Afghanistan, when everything has happened.

  211. I Think maybe they should take better repercussions to make sure this never happens again and then it should save life’s. He should be tried in america and be sentenced to life in prison

  212. I think he should be transferred out because the risk is to great for it to happen again. I think his trail should be held in Afghanistan though, because he killed afghans.

  213. In my opinion i think that the U.S. Marine should not be transferred out of Afghanistan because that’s where he killed the civilians. I think his trial should be held there because it was Afghan people that he killed and in Afghanistan.

  214. I think that the Marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. There is no reason for him to stay there, unless the Afghans want to have his trial there since it happened on their soil. He needs to be held accountable for what he did, his trial should be in the U.S. Even though the conflict occurred overseas the Marine is a soldier and he needs to be punished by the United States government.

  215. Yes, i do think this marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan. He killed innocent people and people don’t want that happening again. so I think he needs to leave Afghanistan. I would think his trial would be brought to the US supreme court to decide what his consequence should be. what other court would be able to handle a case that is so big?

  216. no i do not believe he should be transferd out because if somebody else in america killed someone they wouldnt be able to go to another country they would be running from the law so thats the same thing just because hes in the army doesnt mean he can shoot innocent people when he feels like it. he shouldnt be transferd because he would be running from the afgan law he has charges their so thats ware he should stay.

  217. NO i don’t think that the U.S. marine should be transferred out of Afghanistan because life could be at danger. His trial should be in a closed room around none hes a danger and threat to people. the fact of the matter is there 16 people murdered and i wouldn’t step foot away from my house if that happened.

  218. i think that no, the U.S. troops should not be transferred out of Afghanistan, because we need the troops to stay there to keep the country safe.

  219. I think that he should because that is a bit over board and i don’t think that they really needed to go that much over i can see if it was only 2 or 3

  220. The u.s marine should be brought back. They should just send him home and leave him there he was not able to deal with war.

  221. No I think that he should have his trial in the place where he killed the other people. His trial should be held in the heart of Afghanistan.

  222. I think that he should be brought back to the United States because even if we are fighting against them you should not shoot and children. When he shot the children that was the bi issue. His trial should be in the United States and where ever his home town or state is.

  223. yeah i think that he should leave because if he killed 16 civilians then he should be punished and have charges against him.

  224. I don’t think he should. Mistakes happen, especially when it’s in the hands of a gun. Maybe a brief suspension of some sort?

  225. No, Why should he have to be brought to another country to be an even more harm. He already killed 16 people and there is no reason for him to come to say the u.s. and kill maybe more than 16 people.

  226. Yes, I believe he should be transferred out of Afghanistan. If he stays there, and breaks out of where he is held, he could go kill once more. He should be moved to a higher security prison where he won’t be able escape.

  227. I think the troops should go where ever they need to because it is their job too.

  228. I think that they should stay because he might continue what he is doing and they need to stay there and stop him from hurting anyone else.
