They pay with their lives
4 January 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A really rich guy is shot down as he steps from a limousine with his teen daughter whom he is bringing to the birthday to die for. It turns out he's a defense contractor and his company is responsible for supplying the army with flak vests in Iraq.

Jesse Martin and Milla Govich find that the shooter was an Iraq war veteran that saw his buddy shot and killed from a bullet that the vest should have stopped.

Sam Waterston if he's good at anything it's going after a big target. A military contractor is just his meat. Young John Boyd pleads out and gets a reduced sentence. Waterston's target is Titus Welliver who is the real brains behind the firm.

This is so ironic in that we cut domestic spending at home to provide the military what they says they need. And when we get in a shooting war the taxpayer does not get what he paid for. Our troops then pay with their lives.

See what kind of justice is meted out here.
