According to the Washington Post, Don Ayala was on patrol in Afghanistan when a female colleague was mortally burned when doused with flaming gasoline. Ayala soon after shot the detained Afghan culprit in the head, killing him instantly. Ayala has now copped to a plea of manslaughter and faces a possible 15 years in jail. Wapo commenters overwhelmingly think Ayala should not be punished. Giving the guy a medal and sending him on his way ain't gonna happen. Shame.
