MetroSpirit.com: Reefer resister (video and story) — PFC Ryan Jackson, now in the brig, has been called a hero by peace groups after smoking marijuana and going AWOL for more than three months (thanks to UCMJDefense.blogspot.com for alerting me to this story)
Also be sure and watch the accompanying video from the story that was posted to Youtube
This is an interesting story. On the positive, the reporter dug deep and actually took the time to try to understand the court-martial process and Ryan’s case in some level of refreshing detail.
On the negative, the author definitely chose to emphasize minor elements of the case (i.e. the marijuana issue) in an effort to undermine Ryan’s credibility.
Still it’s worth reading.
