One Lane Road Podcast host, Lucas, is joined by former Army soldier, Nick Slatten.
Slatten was the recipient of a Presidential Pardon from former U.S. President, Donald Trump.
Unfortunately, the story of how Nick went from an honorable serviceman to a life sentence is almost unbelievable, but sadly, it is not entirely uncommon.
In the video below, Lucas and Nick go in depth on the overall issues plaguing the Military Justice system, and the case of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs.
On November 10, 2011, a military jury convicted SSG Calvin Gibbs of multiple charges including murder. The military jury sentenced SSG Gibbs to life in prison with eligibility for parole after 20 years despite the following facts:
- GIBBS PLEADED NOT GUILTY: Gibbs testified in his own defense and denied planning, conspiring, or killing any non-combatants.
- THERE WAS EXONERATING EVIDENCE: A Soldier who did NOT testify at Gibbs’ trial, later testified he & Gibbs lawfully engaged one of the three Gibbs was convicted of “murdering”
- GIBBS WAS NOT PRESENT: Gibbs was not even at the scene for two of the three “murders.”
- THE LYING MURDERERS COLLUDED: There was no forensic evidence to support the allegations, only testimony from junior Soldiers the Court referred to as, “…drug users, liars, and murderers… who had both a motive to fabricate and the opportunity to collude.”
- PLEA DEALS: In return for testifying against Gibbs, Soldiers who pleaded guilty to murdering civilians received extremely lenient punishment, instead of the death penalty.
While terrorists that are guilty of exponentially more severe crimes are being set free, you can help to free American Warriors like SSG Calvin Gibbs by making a tax-exempt donation to United American Patriots (UAP, Inc.) today in support of the legal fees he is accruing, and by contacting your state representatives and the U.S. Congressional Justice For Warriors Caucus to urge them to demand that our nation’s Warriors be released.
