The Army is holding the soldier who informed on his mates for allegedly killing Afghans for sport. He’s in solitary confinement. I understand the need to protect him from his psychopathic cohorts, but is it necessary to punish him for his extraordinarily honorable acts?

In any and every jail or prison in the world, if one inmate wants to hurt another, it will happen, period. Let him live his life and assign to him a cadre of escorts if necessary.
