The Army has an out for some people accused of violent crimes

Increasingly, Army personnel accused of violent crimes are not going to trial at all but are instead being discharged. Vianna Davila is a reporter with the ProPublica-Texas Tribune Investigative Initiative, and she joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the 900 soldiers dishonorably discharged, which allowed them to return to civilian life without having to face their alleged crimes in a courtroom. Her article, co-authored with Lexi Churchill, is “The Army Increasingly Allows Soldiers Charged With Violent Crimes to Leave the Military Rather Than Face Trial.” It appeared in the Texas Tribune and was co-published with ProPublica.
