    Maybe you should refrain from making comments about Sgt. Neigel until you know the whole story! Once the investigators release the details of the case, then you will know that Sgt. Neigel is NOT "another soldier gone mad or to the dark side" as you stated!!!

    Another soldier gone mad or to the dark side. We already know his defense. Insane due to disorder syndrome or whatever it is called. He still needs to do time. Maybe even life in jail.

    It says he was released to Ft. Bragg...I bet that is why it is an unsecured bond.
