So roughly 90% of the US population is going to prison for life, i.e. about twice the number of voters in the last election. You can't make this shit up. (Well, unless you are Mr Pillow).

 

Just when you thought you had a whack job defined. a new definition arises.

Interview with attorney for leader of the Oathkeepers.

This interviewer is good!

 

TBF he is on a road to nowhere trying to defend these traitors. I guess he'll be getting his fees in advance. Would the military be able to recall the exservice members for courts martial, on top of the DOJ charges?

Every accused is entitled to a vigorous legal defense. It's one on the pillars of our legal system.
I don't begrudge even the most evil of these fascist, racist pigs a good mouthpiece.

And yes, that lawyer will be paid in advance.

As far as former military go, it's a bit complicated.

Retirees (drawing a pension) are subject to military law & prosecution (UCMJ). It's a rare occurrence, but it's an option.
Most 'regular' military end up in the reserves for a number of years after the regular enlistment is over. Those reservists are subject to UCMJ.


For veterans who didn't reach 'retirement' status (20 years of service), have been discharged and completed the reserve commitment, they are 'free and clear'.
They cannot be charged in a military court for any civilian crimes.

(Usual disclaimer: This is how I understand it. I may be wrong. If someone knows better, I welcome correction.)

Hi Joe,

Disclaimer:  Things may/probably have changed since I got out of the military.

After I was separated from active duty ( 3 yrs 10 mos 24 days ) I was req'd to go to my local draft board & inform them* of some things such as were I lived, etc.  Don't really remember those details.  However, I do remember that once my active duty ended, I was classified 5A.  This meant that I had completed my active duty ( the 5 ) & was physically able ( the A ) to serve.

IMO of the opinion ( I'll be glad to be corrected ) that anyone can be drafted at anytime should the nation need you.  

Keith, what can you tell us?

Jerry Baumchen

* The draft board had no idea of what I was talking about.  I actually had to show them the regulation regarding this.

Hi Jerry, 

It would take an act of Congress to reinstate the draft. Once that happens, there are age limitations on who can be drafted.

All people 18-26 are required to register, although there's no actual draft right now.

Both you and I are too old to be drafted, although I was registered when I was the appropriate age.

This is all available on the Selective Service site.
