An American soldier charged with abuse that led to the suicide of a 19-year-old fellow soldier in Afghanistan is facing a preliminary hearing Sunday January 15, 2012, the U.S. military said. Spc. Ryan J. Offutt is charged with offenses including maltreatment, assault, involuntary manslaughter and negligent homicide in the death of Pvt. Danny Chen. Offutt is one of eight infantrymen charged in connection with the suicide. Chen shot himself in a guardhouse Oct. 3 in Afghanistan after weeks of racial slurs, humiliation and physical abuse.

On the day of his death, Chen had reported to the guard tower without his helmet or adequate water and was forced to crawl about 100 yards (100 meters) across gravel carrying his equipment as his comrades threw rocks at him, a family representative has quoted investigators as saying.

The hearing is being held at Kandahar Air Field, the sprawling base for U.S. and NATO operations in the south. Chen's family and Chinese community members in New York have called for legal proceedings related to his death to be held in the United States, so they could witness them. Their repeated requests are ignored by the US authority.

This is strictly a military disciplinary matter.

If one goes back to the Japanese Imperial Army,  ...

I think you know the incidents involving minorities over the recent US wars. Do you remember the black who bombed his own unit?

Racism is wrong. Your clear race-line and Christian Sinophobia are severely harmful to the United States. The US must learn to live with diversity.

Will it turn out to be racial blackmail within the military as the cause or is it just the stress of war?
