Bouhammer Poll, What is your opinion of the Marine video?

Since this is a current hot topic in the news and I was on BBC’s World Have Your Say radio show talking about this today, I figured it was time to put up a poll and get the reader’s opinions. Here is a simple question with 10 possible answers. You can check as many of the 10 you agree with. As with all polls, your opinion is anonymous and cannot be seen by anyone. This poll will be active until Jan 19th, 2012.

  1. I’ve never served, but seriously, isn’t there some code or pact like Fight Club or Vegas that says that whatever happens doesn’t go past here? I don’t understand what it’s like out there but common sense says that it was a bad idea and I’m not talking about the pissing. Someone should piss on the camera man.

    1. Yes Al, there is somewhat of an unwritten code but common sense is neccesary in order to enforce it and I think neither the cameraman nor the guys in the video had any.
