    Was reading in my Arizona paper today about a VP who killed himself in Atlanta.He was accused of raping a Indiana student.He claimed it was consensual and was out on bond. He was 50 and been with UPS 15 years.

    What's with shaming the uniform on his way out? Pretty bizarre.

    A real marine would not wear his uniform in a situation like this for that very reason.

  6. He was probably inspired by the movie : A Few Good Men" No originality!

    The character in that movie used his service revolver like a man.

    My thoughts and prayers to the destroyed family.

    As to the marines, I have found that you can take the uniform off the real marine, and still have a marine. Known a lot of good ones over the years, worked for several great ones. Never knew one that was a bad apple, I know there are a few, but never met one.

    Right you? Are you a former Marine? I asked everyone at work last night if they knew whose birthday it was? Hardly anyone knew. I can say too much though. My math was wrong and I said they were 233 years old.

    Don't forget the bag over the head, it's like some trifecta of shame.

    You don't kill yourself over consensual sex. He did the right thing...... except for the uniform.

    might be, sometimes being accused is as bad as being guilty. I'm sure ups was not too thrilled to have a vp getting such press.

    Conspiracy theory? Are you suggesting Corporate had him killed and made it look like a suicide???
