7. That is the real tragedy of a country that holds a clas of people above the law

Those that commit atrocities pay no price for their sadism, the innocent soldiers that are captured later will face revenge for those actions instead.

I would rather a torturing maniac face his crime than an honorable soldier face the consequences instead.
It just sucks on so many levels.

I wish we could be a country that follows a rule of law that no prince or profiteer would be considered exempt from.

Why should anyone be above the law? Our country was not founded on well connected princes and military disgraces being above the law, I have read all of our founding documents and nothing in them supports a class that is above the law.

Why then, do "constitutional scholars" somehow claim that there are indeed men above the law, why then also do our courts not straighten policy makers out on this fact?
