man attacked his girlfriend for voting Kerry

kiss your military dream goodbye

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...home-headlines

WEST PALM BEACH An 18-year-old Marine recruit remained in jail on Wednesday, charged with threatening to stab his girlfriend over her choice for president, news partner NewsChannel 5 reported in its noon broadcast.

The enlistee, Steven Scott Soper, of Lake Worth, became enraged Tuesday night when his 18-year-old girlfriend said she was leaving him -- and voting for John Kerry for president.

Soper, who will enter the Marines as soon as he passes the GED test, solidly supports Bush. He allegedly told girlfriend Stacey Silheira, "You'll never live to see the election."

Palm Beach Sheriff's Office deputies called to the home in Lake Worth said they had to use a Taser an electronic stun gun to subdue Soper. They described Soper as enraged and said he was holding Silheira captive. He was armed with a screwdriver and threatening to stab her in the neck, they said. When Silheira eventually broke free a deputy fired the Taser, shocking him into submission.

Charged with aggravated assault, Soper remains in jail without bond until he undergoes a psychiatric exam, NewsChannel 5 reported.

Something tells me this story would be the same if "his 18-year-old girlfriend said she was leaving him -- and watching a rerun of <i>Trading Spaces</i> instead of the World Series."

The specific instance that sets off a domestic dispute is rarely the source of the problem.

Still, it's fucked up.

How about a psychiatric test as well or is this not important for joining the Marines?

He has just the kind of "enthusiasm" the Marines need over there too.

These people are useful in combat, but now you understand why we are so freaky about 'posse comitatus."

Why do I get the feeling that this story has nothing to do with who they both want as president, but more on the fact that she was dumping him and he was upset about it?

The double edged sword, if a Marine does something good or bad, "Marine" is in the story, even with this putz, who was just a wannabe not even in yet. Way to give us a bad name.

That's what I suspected so I guess it's a good time to remind everyone about the rule regarding generalizations.

And if he fails the exam, the Marines will waive the GED requirement for him.

You mean that the poster is instantly suspended until after the election?

<i>Mod edit: unfortunately from now until the election "jokes" of that kind are probably better left unstated as it is difficult to tell in print what is sarcastic and what is not. Additionally if we let the "jokes" slip by I suspect this will become a very "funny" place between now and then...

Hopefully that makes sense and everyone agrees.

Thanks

(And for those who need the obvious stated: Yes, that was a joke)

So since he's locked up, does that mean he doesn't get to vote?

No, only convicted felons are not allowed to vote. Here, being locked up (but not convicted) is one of the acceptable reasons for an absentee ballot. Really.
