Your 2 Cents: Former Army Lt. Michael Behenna Parole

Posted: Updated:

I'm glad to hear former Army Lt. Michael Behenna from Edmond will be paroled after serving five years for killing an Iraqi civilian he thought was involved in an IED attack on his platoon. Here's what you had to say.

Ron first: "Lt. Behenna should not even be in prison."

Mary asks: "Can you just imagine what kind of idiots had the audacity to charge him? Every active military person should have decided to resign in protest."

But Cherokee says: "Just because he is (was) in the military doesn't make him any better than anyone else."

From Patrick: "This man is imprisoned for doing what he thought was the right thing in defense of himself and his unit."

Marlene in the Village writes: "He was told to take the man home and he didn't do it. He disobeyed direct orders."

Robert from Harrah says: "No one that has not been there would understand what they have seen unless you were there. And I can tell you I would not wish that on anyone."

David in Blanchard: "If I was President, Lt. Michael Behenna would have gotten a full pardon and an Honorable Discharge if he wanted it."

Deanna in Edmond: "My two cents from a Marine mom. Our God is good!"

Finally, Pamela from Mustang asks: "Since when are the soldiers, who are trained to kill the enemy, getting punished for killing the enemy?"

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
