17 Year Old Wants To Join Army

Democrat and anti-freedom judge says no. These pro terrorist democrats sure are getting bold in public.

A California judge rejected a foster teen's request for early enlistment with the Marine Corps — and a $10,000 signing bonus — reportedly on the grounds that the judge didn't approve of the Iraq war.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Marilyn Mackel denied 17-year-old Shawn Sage's request to join the military last October, according to a report in the Los Angeles Daily News.

"The judge said she didn't support the Iraq war for any reason we're over there," Marine recruiter Sgt. Guillermo Medrano of the Simi Valley U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office told the paper.

"She just said all recruiters were the same — that they 'all tap dance and tell me what I want to hear.' She said she didn't want him to fight in it."

Can we question their patriotism yet?

This teen should definitely have an opportunity to join the military. What life is it for a teen in a foster home? Must not be too good or he would not be trying to join the military. This stupid judge is denying a young person to do something that would make him feel proud and what better way than to serve his country. Events such as this makes one wonder if the judges have too much power.

Military is the best place for any teen, especially this one.

If this judge had a brain she would certainly know that being in the military is far better than being unhappy in a foster home.
what a shame that this particular judge heard the case, maybe another judge would have used common sense.
