Marc Hall Jailed For Being A Conscientious Objector

Conscientious Objector, Marc Hall, finished his tour of duty in Iraq and expected to be honorably discharged from the military. Then can you blame him when he gets a tad bit upset with the information, that "No,'re not getting out like you're supposed have to go BACK TO IRAQ!" To let off a bit of steam, Marc Hall wrote a little ditty about his objections and feelings of having to have his time extended beyond the normal date, by something that's been referred to as the Stop Loss Policy. Here's Marc's Song posted at Courage to Resist Website. You take a listen and see if it warrants him being arrested and jailed.

You know what sucks is that if he's in a "deploying unit" there's tiny, tiny little clauses in their contracts that state that at anytime, the US Army may hold you past contract regardless of circumstances. My best friend is in the Army and that's another facet of the US life that needs some dire restructuring.

I just don't know what to think about all of this, it seems surreal.

Yeah. It's so sad that things like this happen. It hurts my heart. Egh.
