Who can ever forget the YouTube video of the two Marines tossing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq? I know this blogger won't. Outside of a video of Angelina Jolie eating with U.S. troops in Iraq, I don't think there was ever a post on this blog that drew more attention.
Scroll down to see story and video of ANGELINA JOLIE eating with U.S. troops in Iraq in February.
The video was pulled by YOUTUBE, but we have an uncut version of the puppy tossing event by the two Marines and you can view it here: http://my.break.com/content/view.aspx?ContentID=463231
However, the United States Marine Corps has now disciplined the two U.S. Marines involved in the incident and CNN is reporting the story here:
2 Marines disciplined over puppy-tossing video
Lance Cpl. David Motari faces removal; Sgt. Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion punished
Video surfaced March 3 on YouTube showing a Marine tossing a puppy over a cliff
The Marines condemned the incident, calling it "shocking and deplorable"
(CNN) -- The U.S. Marine Corps has disciplined two Marines over a videotape that showed a Marine throwing a puppy over a cliff, the military said Wednesday.
Officials did not specify the role that each man played in the incident, which received international attention after a video of it appeared on YouTube.com March 3.
Lance Cpl. David Motari is being processed for removal for his role, the Marine Corps said, and Sgt. Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion also has been punished.
The video shows someone throwing a black-and-white puppy off a rocky cliff. The dog makes a yelping sound as it flies through the air.
"That's mean. That was mean," someone off-camera is heard saying.
We, however, have a copy of the video but not from YouTube and you can view it here: http://my.break.com/content/view.aspx?ContentID=463231
The Marines were quick to condemn the video when it surfaced, calling it "shocking and deplorable."
Marine officials said the disciplinary action followed a thorough investigation, according to a statement that the Marine Corps Base Hawaii released Wednesday.
