Is this soldier getting railroaded?

GALESBURG, Ill. — An Illinois National Guard soldier in Afghanistan has been charged by the Army with possessing child pornography over pictures of a young relative his mother says she sent him.

Terri Miller of Galesburg says she sent her son, Spc. Billy Miller, pictures of the little girl to help him get over his homesickness.

The pictures show the child in a swimsuit playing a wading pool and sitting on a truck. In one, the girl is wearing a swim suit and part of her buttocks are exposed.

The Army says Miller will stay in Afghanistan until his court-martial. His unit came home last August. Miller faces jail time, if convicted.

Terri Miller says the pictures are innocent. She says her son is close to the girl.

How railroading works.

First they came for the communists
then they came for the trade unionists
then they came for the homosexuals
then they came for the Jews.

Once they get away with demonizing one group of people and turn it into a useful tool,
it may never stop.

Not to defend adults having sex with children, but the "war" against them has already degenerated to permanent detentions, to prosecutions for what amounts to thought crime, to jailing high school seniors for having consensual sex with sophomores, and to convictions based on nothing but wild fantasies placed in little kids minds by fanatical prosecutors.(Anybody remember where Janet Reno's "fame" came from?) Many of these people have been virtually railroaded off to the gulag.

So who are they going to load on the train next?
They are already working on the Muslims, devout Christians, the home schoolers, and the gun owners.

When will members of your group start getting booked for "trips they can't refuse?"

The tracks are clear, the locomotive has a full head of steam, the whistle is blowing shrill and sharp for all to hear, the wheels turning, but still lacking traction. The moment the train is out of the station, gaining momentum, it will be too late.

Now is the time to speak out, to stand up before it gets any further. To stand against a stationary train is easy. Who will have the courage to stand once it is moving?

oh my

What a great comment!

I Salute you patriot for speaking the Truth in such a fine way*))

We can thank

the Immorality of society for this,Our family is very aware that there are no longer any innocent pictures of our children of any kind.Even a picture of a granddaughter sitting on Grandpa's lap could be deemed as inappropriate.Reminds me of that movie"Snap Decision".
No longer can we take the proverbial"Naked Butt"picture to extort our children with when they get older.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Play with fire and you might

Play with fire and you might get burned.

For decades, the US military has been imperial in nature...thus they do immoral and illegal things. If you choose to join such an organization, (1) you had better be prepared to do immoral and illegal things; (2) you run the risk of being the victim of said organization.

It is that way when joining a corporation, a street gang, etc...heck, most families are like this.

Leave your morals behind and cover your ass.

The world is half full and half empty. The half empty part is like fire...play with it and you might get burned.

Most of us do not even know you are playing with fire. Frankly, we have to deal with the fire...the crappy part of life. At least know what you are dealing with.

The only way this guy will get out of this pickle is to play the game: buy his way out.
