Marine seems to hurl puppy off cliff in video

This is very disturbing

Marine Seems to throw puppy off cliff

This is one of the most terribly, heart stabbing things I have ever seen.
This person and the people with him should be punished for that. Even if the puppy was dead, like some say - they should still be punished - its just something you don't do and to be laughing about it. . . .



Some people should be punished for things they do - but if this person/people gets away with this. . . .

that made me sick to my stomach watching that. How could anyone do something like that and have the balls to laugh. They need to get their heads examined.

You really don't want to know my thoughts right now! I think I'd get banned just for expressing them. Not to go against you, but you know, sometimes it's better to just not see/share those kinds of videos...they bring way too much hurt!

Looks like the USMC is indeed looking into it, as they should be.

It's amazing how one or two can tarnish the image of so many....

I hope the USMC takes this seriously.

That's terrible. I can only hope that the video was faked. Why on earth would anyone ever want to, or have to heart to do such a thing?

Still, faking it isn't much better...

I love all my little darlings!

If it turns out to be real that is just so horrific and they will not get away with it.

If it is fake it still is so terrible. Just someone having that kind of thought in their sick head and thinking it is somehow a joke and then to go post it is just sickening to know there are people like that out there.

Earlier Tuesday, the base's public affairs director issued a statement denouncing the vignette.
"The video is shocking and deplorable and is contrary to the high standards we expect of every Marine," said Major Chris Perrine. "This video came to our attention this morning, and we have initiated an investigation. We do not tolerate this type of behavior and will take appropriate action."
Quote:
Perrine said it appears that the man in the video is a lance corporal based with a unit in the Hawaiian islands. His actions weren't characteristic of those of most men and women who serve, the spokesman said.
"The vast majority of Marines conduct their duties in an honorable manner that brings great credit upon the Marine Corps and the United States," said Perrine. "There have been numerous stories of Marines adopting pets and bringing them home from Iraq or helping to arrange life-saving medical care for Iraqi children.
"Those are the stories that exemplify what we stand for and how most Marines behave."
Quote:
"Certainly there's a lot of outrage and a lot of people are upset about it. I think every Marine is upset about this video," Perrine said. “We will investigate and take appropriate action and make sure our Marine is safe as well.
"That is mistreatment of a puppy. That is a violation of anybody's standards, and the Marine Corps sets extremely high standards."

I have no doubt the Marine Corps will take appropriate action here. Just like any group, there are always bad apples. I hope they check the LCpl out for combat related stress, too.

Definitely check them for combat related stress. People do unexpected things after having to fight for things they shouldn't be fighting for. PTS is on the rise and will continue to be.

I saw it and whether or not it was real or faked the marines present in the video need A LOT of help. They need to be dishonerably discharged and get help. Irregardless, we do not need the likes of them representing us.
