Georgie F. Brizendine: A general shame

March 23, 2014 

Regarding the March 21 news article “ U.S. general spared prison time”: Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair gets a slight tap on the wrist for his adulterous behavior, his wife writes a pleading letter to the judge and the captain gets no justice. Would an enlisted person be given the same leniency? The “penalty” in this case is just ludicrous!
