Demoted and fired: an American sergeant convicted of the destruction of equipment


“The military tribunal found 29-year-old sergeant John Skipper guilty of throwing parachute straps when throwing cars with a parachute during an exercise in Germany. As a result, three all-terrain vehicles costing more than 200 thousand dollars crashed and were written off. No one was hurt, ”says the publication.

This incident, which occurred in April 2016-th, was on the video, which is actively discussed throughout the world.

The vehicles were dropped from C-130 military transport aircraft during the Saber Junction exercise in the south of Germany.

The sergeant was threatened with up to 10 years in prison and a large fine. But in the end he got off with a demotion to the rank-and-file and dismissal from the army with the wording "for inappropriate behavior."

John Skipper became the second soldier who was punished for the incident. The first received a penalty (reprimand) sergeant who swore obscenely and laughed behind the scenes video.

          Let’s think you’ve got fired ... BUT WHAT ARE STILL FRAMES !!!
          In general, the story smells bad. There is doubt that this sergeant generally exists in nature. Note - the Hamers crashed from three different aircraft. So the design flaw is more likely, and this performance with the recognition of the sergeant is nothing more than the words "we have good parachutes, it was only a diversion." Yes, and two years later, to solve the crime - any trail would be able to find cropped slings on the same day, at the military base everywhere, cameras, so that the circle of suspects who could cut, immediately becomes short. And then stab (plus a lie detector), they know how. For a couple of days, the crime would have been solved.

                In total this year on the railways of the Soviet Union happened 43 015 crashes and accidents.

        It doesn't seem to me to be a sergeant either. Well, it's stupid to cut slings. Well, the boy was 18 years old. And so, he has a track record already. This means that the pension has been accumulated. Nafik it to him?

              It’s direct that it blows to relatives. good
              The company commander asked to bring cement, and so we brought. On guard Shishiga, the springs were already arched. In the morning, the company commander called us boobies and ordered us to unload everything in the guard training camp. He needed a handful of cement - to cover the toilet drain at home. As a punishment, I drove a multi-ton Mercedes with a solution into the guardhouse and we flooded the parade ground on the lip and the guardhouse yard. Then we had no problems with cement and concrete - the Germans reconstructed the take-off and concrete had to be done somewhere. Here we have a "bonus" and flew. lol

    The military tribunal found the 29-year-old Sergeant John Skipper guilty of deliberately cutting parachute slings when dropping cars with a parachute during exercises in Germany. As a result, three all-terrain vehicles worth more than 200 thousand dollars crashed and were decommissioned.

    We found the switchman to cover up his technical insolvency!
    Is there anyone from the Airborne Forces who was involved in mooring and dropping equipment from an airplane?
    How many times is moored equipment checked on the ground and before being thrown out?
    How many people are on the plane during the throw?
    As a former sergeant of the Airborne Forces and the platoon squadron, who received 5 points each for the BMD-1 mooring, I can say - Crap! He would have been wetted on the plane and this despite the fact that you still need to get to the lines ... they do not hang there with a web!

      More than once I watched the release of containers from Hercules (karnaf izr). Technicians serving the drop are usually 2-3 and everyone checks each other. Even if one sabotaged the rest, they should have noticed it.

    There was a similar case, only with containers (200 liters) of water, parachuted.
    Long-term storage, possibly in inappropriate conditions, rotted slings (cotton 4 cm wide) securing the cargo. The approach, discharge of 3 cargoes, the domes are filled and immediately go out, and 3 barrels whistle against the ground.

    Why they did not conduct an investigation right away when they broke off the slings. For so many years they have been looking for the switchman. The NATO command of corrupt partners, rotted slipped. We must somehow save ourselves, they found a sergeant, he will answer for all. They didn’t tear at the ejection, but when they descended, something was amiss.
