Opinion by Hank Nuwer
The father of a son who was slammed with a wooden mallet as his hazing wants a court martial with, upon conviction, a reduction in rank and the guardhouse for assault by Sgt. Steven D. Carpenter.
All the good army military pronouncements failed to stop this beating of Phillip Roach or the suicide of Danny Chen.
A court martial is essential.
