Third Marine Charged In Triple Shooting

A third Camp Lejeune Marine has been charged in this past weekend's shooting outside a Jacksonville restaurant.

Lance Corporal Robert Goense is charged with the shooting of Enation Roney.

Roney, and two other men, were shot outside the Las Maracas early Sunday morning after police say the three got into a argument with other customers of the restaurant.

The Marine Corps says Goense is a rifleman, assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines. They say he entered the Marines in July 2008 and was promoted to his current rank on June 1, 2009.

Earlier this week police charged Lance Corporal Erwin Rodriguez, Jr. with the shooting of Jonni Aidoo, while Sergeant Michael Haridat was charged with shooting Christian Onate.

    I believe that anyone with a violent past, even if it was minor should not be allowed to join the military service. i am sorry but they are pretty much trained killers and i believe that by allowing someone with a violent history into the military only makes things worse!

    Unfortunately this kid was probably a thug before he joined. Three months of boot camp isn't going to change a kid if he doesn't believe in what the Marine Corps is trying to teach him.

    In some cases prisones who are released have to go to a halfway house before they are allowed to return to life without a leash. I think the same concept should be posed upon military men and woman groomed to kill. Pyschologically speaking, they need to be reprogrammed.

    Fine with me. I'd gladly leave this country. At least France does not wage wars on third world nations under false pretenses. The only comeback that you and all of the neo-conservative zealots that post on here can come up with is "leave the country". Better yet, "American Love It or Leave It". Well, sir, I do not love this country. I tolerate it. And I do not bow to you or any of our so-called "heroes", as we are expected to do in this state.

    Wow hurt me with a come back about grammar! I am impressed. Speaking of grammar why would you capitalize basic grammar? Judging by your typing, I can see you are a bleeding heart liberal. I like how you avoided all of my previous points. I agree you need a to live in a country with leader that does not have a patriotic military. Again try France!!!

    My suggestion to you, USMC MSGT, is to first take a course in Basic Grammar. Judging by your typing, I can see why you are a marine (notice I did not capitalize the word "marine"). What we need are leaders, not miliataristic neanderthals ranting about patriotism and brainwashed into the absurd mindset of "My country, right or wrong".

    To: The voice of reason!!!! First off maybe you should learn to read!! I never said N.J. was south of here. I was quoting a post left by Mountainside N.J. My post was To: Mountainside NJ. I assure you I know how to read a map!! Second what this country needs is a waving flag in every ones face. You say you pay my salary! Here is a solution for you, quit your job and move to Cananda!! Or better yet France!! I am sure I will still get paid!! Do not forget I pay taxes to. If your not a satisfied customer I suggest you vote your elected officials out of office. Or bettter yet why don't you pick up a M-16 and stand on a post if you think you can do a better job.

    First off, USMC MSGT, New Jersey is NORTH of here, not south. If you were not blinded by the waving the flag in everyone's face, you would realize that. Secondly, I pay your salary, and I am not a satisfied customer. So, Captain America, lay off of the Frank Burns rhetoric for a while.

    To: mountainside nj!!! who cares about some rinky dink town down south anyway?? That rinky dink town just happens to be a huge Marine Corps community that has about 45,000 american heros in it that call it home! It is not just some rinky dink town. If your town is so great keep all these trouble making thugs in it. We don't need these thugs here. We need MEN that serve with honor!
