    BAD: "Trust" Court-Martial Set To Start

    There are idiots every where, including in the Air FOrce I served in for a long time.

    An airman accused of killing one of his best friends during a game of dare will face a court-martial next week at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.

    Airman 1st Class Corey Hernandez, voice network apprentice with the 55th Communications Squadron, is charged with the Dec. 10 death of Senior Airman Michael Garcia. The trial begins July 19 and is expected to last five days.

    The airmen, according to officials, were playing “Trust” when the shooting occurred at Garcia’s off-base apartment. In the game, one player aims a gun at another and pulls the trigger. The target “trusts” the shooter to unload the weapon before they play.

    Hernandez, then 21, pulled the trigger of the .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun and the pistol fired, police said, hitting the Garcia, 23, in the head.

    Hernandez's lawyer, James Martin Davis, has called the shooting an accident. The airmen played the game often and took turns as the shooter, he told Air Force Times in December.

    Someone needs to be in jail for this stunt, and there's only one guy left......pretty dumb stunt which may cost him decades in the slammer.

    Or paintball! I've got some airmen who go shoot at a paintball range - I've gone and it's a lot of fun, but I'm getting too old for that stuff! - or some of us get together and go to a shooting range. You get the thrill of shooting people at the former and the trust (and a bit of a rush, if only for me) of making sure your friends/co-workers won't shoot you.

    So sad. One airman is dead and another's career is over, plus he's going to get some jail time.

    Sadly, this "game" has been well documented among the armed forces since the Gulf conflict began. I had previously only heard about Marines doing it, but...

    I guess the game of "Trust" is the next level after Roshambo.

    The phrase "throw away the key" comes to mind...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
