Military Jury Finds Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher Not Guilty

 In Military

Tuesday, a military jury found Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher not guilty on six of the charges against him, which included murder and attempted murder. He was found guilty of “posing for a photo with a casualty,” which only carries a sentence of 4 months. He’s been incarcerated since September, so he received time served for that charge. He no longer needs a Trump pardon.

Finally. The military jury found Eddie Gallagher not guilty of murdering a teenage ISIS fighter. They also found him not guilty of “willfully discharging a firearm to endanger human life, retaliation against members of his platoon for reporting his alleged actions, obstruction of justice, and the attempted murders of two noncombatants.”

The military jury consisted of 5 US Marines and 2 Sailors for charges that were extremely strange from the very beginning. The prosecution went rogue at the start, twisting the “war crimes” narrative and putting the Gallagher family through hell. He was treated like garbage from the beginning, not receiving proper medical treatment for his TBI, not getting enough food, until the family reached out to Rep Dan Crenshaw and several other representatives as well as the President and he was moved to a different facility.

Then the prosecution even tried spying on the defense…which resulted in removal of the prosecutor. Then another SEAL testified that he killed the ISIS fighter, not Eddie Gallagher. It’s been a tangled web of confusion throughout the trial.

Several members of his platoon testified against him. Did the jury see through the bitterness in their testimony? Gallagher’s family fought long and hard to bring his case to the attention of the media and the people who really matter. Now the jury finds Eddie Gallagher not guilty on all of the major counts. He walked out of the court a free man. Justice served.
