Green Beret Sergeant Charles Martland has been acquitted and reinstated to duty after he was suspended for his attempt to protect Afghani children from rape at the hands of Afghani authorities. The American Center for Law and Justice collected 300,000 signatures calling for Sgt. Martland’s reinstatement. Senior counsel Matthew Clark told The World View that this demonstrates the power of petition in seeking justice for the afflicted: “The unquestionably number one factor in his reinstatement back into the military was the fact that the American people spoke out.

According to Newsweek, the Marines were told to treat the Afghani child rape problem as a cultural practice, and U.S. military personnel have been discouraged from interfering with brutal pedophiles if they are considered U.S. allies.
