Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher Sentenced to Reduced Rank, Partial Pay After Being Cleared of Murder



US Navy prosecutors accused decorated US Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher of premeditated murder over the stabbing of an injured 15-year-old ISIS terrorist in Mosul, Iraq in May of 2017.

Gallagher denied the charges and the entire case was turned upside down a couple weeks ago when a combat medic testified that he, not Eddie Gallagher killed the ISIS fighter.


Special Operator 1st Class Corey Scott, a SEAL Team Seven medic, testified to shocked trial observers in a Naval Base courtroom in San Diego, California that he killed the ISIS fighter by asphyxiation.

And a jury on Tuesday found Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher not guilty of war crimes.

Even though Gallagher was cleared of murder charges, the jury sentenced him to reduced rank and partial pay because he took a photo with a dead ISIS terrorist.

This is where we are at in this country.

Eddie Gallagher has served 19 years in the US Navy, 8 tours, 6 of which as an elite special forces operator — he was ranked as the top SEAL chief and his platoon ranked as the top SEAL platoon.

And because of overzealous, unethical Obama-era prosecutors, Eddie Gallagher’s rank has been reduced to an E6 paygrade which affects both his pay and benefits.

Fox News reported:

“I feel fine. It’s all right, you know? The jury came with a verdict. I trust them,” Gallagher told Fox News after his sentencing Wednesday, which stipulates his rank will be reduced to an E6 paygrade, affecting both his pay and his benefits. A jury also sentenced the SEAL to pay $2,697 per month for four months.

Prior to sentencing, Gallagher’s defense succeeded in getting the judge to reduce the potential forfeiture to 50 percent, arguing that some of Gallagher’s pre-trial confinement was tantamount to punishment based on the fact that he was denied access to a computer and some medical treatment. Even though the jury came back with a 4-month partial forfeiture of pay, it will be cut in half, resulting in 2 months partial forfeiture.

President Trump, who previously said he would intervene and pardon Eddie Gallagher, should immediately promote him back to his previous position.

1. you don't get promoted for violation of a lawful order

i'm interested in the testimony that made premeditated murder sound like a plausible charge. "fog of war," I suppose.

4. Only since I and My Peers Retired

I still work on a Navy Base and these Kids (All of Which were Promoted during Obama) know almost nothing about their Rating and their previous training was all Social Engineering Policy.

They don't even know how to service a Seat-kit Bailout Bottle and bring it to us if it is low. The Navy at Andrews lost the Civilian Contractors at the LOX Plant and didn't know how to do ABO Analysis. They came down to us to get Training on it and we told the Chief, Dude, we'll show you but we are Contractors, We are NOT Supposed to be Training you. We are Supposed to be doing Support for you.

Trump is Un-Fucking it but it will take time

5. Not sure I disagree with this. The ROE is clear.

It is not so much the action, but that he disobeyed long standing and well known ROE. Even if he was found not guilty, it will never be trusted with a leadership role again. He will finish his 20 and get out. He will return as a security contractor or maybe a set up a firearms training school of some sort.

Not being a SJW here, but when you are sent out on independent command, your bosses have to know you will follow orders and the rules. This man has clearly shown he will not. SEALs do not turn in other SEALs for no reason. This guy had to have been clearly over the top repeatedly and not just in this instance.

It will be interesting to see what happens to the medic.
