One of these guys is a Marine? What shame he has brought to the Corps. He will be immediately dishonorably discharged as well as prosecuted.

That is sick. What kind of thrill do you get from killing innocent animals? Yeah, I'm sure the Corps will be anxious to give this loser some military justice.

Oh and Dan Bunz played during the 49ers early 80's dynasty.

I think this whole situation is really sad. Why? Why would these people do such a thing? It really doesn't make sense... Were they on drugs?

Send them to the front! Why discharge a Marine? Just make him an Army grunt and send him to where he can drive and shoot legally. He was probably just practicing.

look. I knew Collin personally, and sometimes good people do bad things and everything happens for a reason. Im not saying that the incident that occured was right by any means, but I am confident that he regrets that decision now. To those who suffered a loss of their pets my sympathy to goes out to you as well as the family members of these boys.Praying for you Lovejoy.

From the article it seems like these Bozos did this repeatedly...it wasn't just some single case of getting a little high on on occasion. Which would be bad enough. But to go out and hunt people's farm animals (not pets, dude) for kicks indicates that this guy isn't gonna handle Rules of Engagement unless there is someone bird-dogging him.

It's probably a good thing that he showed this "propensity" before he got into combat and started killing Iraqi civilians without provacation...like he did with these "dangerous animals".

From what I understand this guy was a Churchgoing Christian kid in High School. Now, looking at his web page he's a sex crazy idiot. And listen to the girls who visit his web site. Party...party...party...He didn't seem to well prepared to go out into the world as an adult.

Some kids get discipline in the Marines...this one clearly didn't. Or maybe the training has changed since I served in the Corps.

And who is this other guy? Both guys have skinhead cuts...expected in a Marine...but is this other dude a USMC wannabee? Or is he a skinhead? Not sure if either is someone that a Marine should be running with, though I know it happens.

Lastly, I'm a little concerned about the .221 slug retrieved. Certainly could be a civilian issue Colt or Remington...but it's also used in AR-15's issued to Marines. If it turns out to be THAT...well this kid is in a lot more trouble than it appears he is in NOW!

I had a horse shot and killed a little over three years ago in the general vicinity where this happened. The perpetrator was never caught since there was, to our knowledge, any effort put forth in the investigation.
It was very lucky for whoever did it that I didn't catch them in the act otherwise he would never be able to do it again.
By the way, it was also a couple of Marines that shot those wild horses in Nevada a few years back but please don't blame the Corps, these are just total idiots which should be put in the pasture and shot at.
