Seems to me that if the manhunt is targeting you, your ass is already about halfway up shiat creek. At that point, it's time to think about what curtains you wanna hang in the prison cell.

Just eat your spinach and you'll be strong to the finish.

We've had at least a half-dozen murders within the past week or so  in this region.

WTF, reality? You'e supposed to leave us alone.

He's a sailor and he committed the crime on a base against another sailor. Why would there even be a chance of this not being a military trial?

I was once stabbed by a sailor. Well, actually it was more like a sword fight.

Typically the military does 1 of 2 things.

1. Kicks him right there on the spot and turns him over to civilians for trail and prison.
2. Fark that guy, take him to jail and when you are done we get him to do it all over again. Because going to jail makes you AWOL and UCMJ violations aren't double jeopardy.

They are if it's a criminal proceeding. While captain's mast is NJP and therefore not double jeopardy, things like attempted murder trend to go to court martial.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I know what you meant, and you're right, but I wasn't a sea lawyer for nothing.

FYI:  They pinged his phone to find his location.

Just to help those paranoid conspirators and technophobes - you were right.

/just like on-star in a car - just because it was never activated does not mean they do not know where you are
//surprised they admitted it

Guess that answers the question of "what do you do with a drunken sailor?"

Your advice is shaky at best, subby.

I like the reference to a "tight white tank top". The reporter couldn't be much clearer about suspected motive.

Don't think the text message hurts that much when a dozen people seen you do it. Yes you are already screwed.

...and we're done. If they're already looking for my murdering ass, ensuring that I've left evidence of my act and my remorse isn't the worst thing to do.

The military tends to let the civilian courts do their thing separately from the military judicial system. Local state laws are still in effect on federal installations.

Fun fact: Double jeopardy doesn't apply; you can be acquitted by civilian authorities and still tried under the UCMJ for the same offense. They rarely do it; usually they just ring people up for "conduct unbecoming" or something else that isn't illegal under civilian law, like adultery.
