Hemler escapes from Germany, still alive. This is big news

He planned to stay in Sweden for a week and ended up with a wife and three kids 28 years later. That's some planning!
 
2012-06-17 01:43:18 PM
He deserted from the Air Force? What, was he mad they forgot to leave a mint on his pillow?

/I keed, I keed.

But seriously. I was in the Air Force and if he couldn't stick it out for four years he's the giantest pussy that ever pussed.

Dagens Nyheter said David Hemler had deserted aged 21 while serving at a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, after getting involved with a pacifist church and becoming disillusioned with the policies of former President Ronald Reagan.



I can see that.

The president is nice and all, but just because someone's elected doesn't mean they're worth your life. No wars going on, no desire to kill strangers, no leader you respect in the Oval Office. I can see why he left.

What brought him back?

"My dream scenario is that the responsible authorities realize I have already been punished quite severely for my actions ... I have been living 28 years in lies," Hemler said.

My dream scenario is they send him to Afghanistan for poop duty. Literally poop duty.

He went to Sweden.... And married a Thai? Dumbass tag indeed.

"My dream scenario is that the responsible authorities realize I have already been punished quite severely for my actions ... I have been living 28 years in lies," Hemler said.

My dream scenario is that people hear this and ask, "If it was so terrible, and such a punishment, why did you do it for 28 years?", and then extradite him to the US to face trial for his crime. Let him explain it to the courts.

"My crime IS my punishment! it's been so awful, living here in Sweden, with my Thai hoochie-mama and my free health care and my government job! You should let me stay in this briar patch as punishment!"

Basically, he wants it both ways - deserter, cushy life, no punishment, and gets to have his old life back, too. Doesn't work that way for most of us - you make your decisions and live with them.

Send him back to the military as a basic slave for the prescribed time.

No clearance, no weapons, and a minder. Sleeps locked up. Does what it's told or it gets the hose again.

A year or so of that should be punishment enough. If it's not, the military trains its soldiers different than it used to.

Served in that time period, nothing tuff about it.

Exactly what is the term for a USAF prison? USMC, USN and USCG get brigs, and the USA gets stockades.

What a selfish jerk, to put his family through that kind of torture. Not knowing the fate of a loved one is horrible - you can't even grieve and move on.

Dumbass indeed. Who joins the military and doesn't want to be part of the military??? A retard that's who. He disappeared from the "6913th Electronic Security Squadron" not the Marines. He wasn't engaging in hand-to-hand combat and mowing down gooks with a M60. Fark this cry baby!

It isn't a job. He didn't work fast food, he was supposed to defend a country. Maybe if he had been there, he would've stopped some 3rd world POS "soldier" from killing a couple of kids. So yeah, I take it back, THAT was his job. Stopping the bad guys. Instead, he dropped the ball.

Exactly. He was a signals analyst with the air force in germany. The only thing he was killing was his liver with all the beer he was drinking on the weekends.

Sgt Otter is currently serving.

Last I checked.

Anyways, FTFA: after getting involved with a pacifist church and becoming disillusioned with the policies of former President Ronald Reagan.

Religion is a helluva drug.

After his desertion, he became one of the U.S. Air Force's eight most wanted fugitives, according to the newspaper, and had expected at any time to be arrested by military police with both Interpol and Europol looking for him.

Do they just not have many fugitives? Or what? I mean fundamentally all the guy did was run out, and while that's a crime, it doesn't seem like hunting the man down would be cost-effective if all he's doing is hiding from you.

You don't really believe that "stopping the bad guys" is the job of the military or of this particular guy, do you? Because that would be military grade stupid and childish.

I was at a bar up here in Sweden a couple years ago, met a congenial Norwegian fellow. We got to talking and drinking and after a couple hours he tells me he's a fellow American. Or was, at any rate. He dodged the draft way back when and moved to Norway, where his parents were from. Had lived there ever since.

Yeah, there's that whole "Oath of Office" thing, signatures on contracts, and multiple IRL versions of the "Are you sure you want to perform this operation?" thing.

First, you don't have to be in the military to blast a guy who signs up THEN pusses out.

Second, Look at how many congressmans' sons never sign up, and get back to us on the equality of duty among citizens.

Third, not every military role is either combat or in danger. Are you saying those men are any less patriotic or necessary? The troops are nothing without logistics, and logistics are nothing without the troops. But they're both damn well serving their country.

Fourth, without saying anything about YOUR military experience, you're just going meta in terms of being an internet tough guy calling other internet tough guys by the same feather..
