Why do we even have islamonazis prisoners? Unless they are there to be tortured for information that leads to more of them being killed, they shouldn’t be alive to begin with.

Military JAG & CID can bury you under the Jail so to speak for any and all indescrepencies. Big or small. One thing I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

Chief Gallagher has been accused of a number of offenses during his final deployment to Iraq and during the Battle for Mosul. The most prominent accusation and the best-attested to is the murder of a prisoner of war, a war crime.[4] A captured young Islamic State (also known as ISIL, ISIS, and Daesh) fighter was being treated by a medic. According to two SEAL witnesses, Gallagher allegedly said over the radio "he's mine", walked up to the medic and prisoner without saying a word, and murdered the prisoner via stabbing him repeatedly with his hunting knife. Gallagher and his commanding officer, Lieutenant Jake Portier, then posed for photos of them standing triumphantly over the body with some other nearby SEALs. Gallagher then text messaged a fellow SEAL a picture of the dead captive with the explanation "Good story behind this, got him with my hunting knife.”[4]

Another accusation has been 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;[1] according to testimony, the other snipers in the platoon did not consider him a good sniper, and he took "random shots" into buildings.[7] Other snipers directly witnessed Gallagher taking at least two militarily pointless shots, shooting 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.[7] Gallagher also was known for indiscriminately spraying neighborhoods with rockets and machine gun fire with no known enemy force in the region.[4]

A charge of obstruction of justice was brought against Gallagher for alleged witness intimidation. Gallagher allegedly threatened to kill fellow SEALs if they reported his actions.[1] The Navy cited his text messages as attempting to undermine the investigation, with messages sent to "pass the word on those traitors" against cooperating witnesses and get them blacklisted within the special warfare community.[4][7] 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.[1]

Gallagher has also been charged with "nearly a dozen" lesser offenses.[1]

According to Navy prosecutor Chris Czaplak, "Chief Gallagher decided to act like the monster the terrorists accuse us of being. He handed ISIS propaganda manna from heaven. His actions are everything ISIS says we are."[2][1]
