Let some them Marines find his punishment!

Man Pleads Guilty to Robbing Dead Marine

Published: Nov 24, 2004 11:48 PM EST

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A man pleaded guilty Wednesday to ransacking the apartment of a newlywed Marine reservist killed in Iraq, breaking in while his widow was with family members planning the soldier's funeral.

Prosecutors said Kevin Selvoski, 24, and an alleged accomplice stole a computer and video games to buy heroin.
"You have an individual who paid the ultimate price for his country and they gave him a slap in the face by robbing him and his widow," said prosecutor Robert Sander.
Prosecutors said Selvoski had called the widow of Cpl. John Todd, 25, and expressed his condolences.
Selvoski, who also faces prison time for probation violations, pleaded guilty to burglary, criminal conspiracy and possession of heroin; under a plea deal, he has agreed to testify against his alleged accomplice. No sentencing date was set.
Todd's widow, Colleen, and his parents were at the hearing along with two uniformed Marines.
"I'd like to see both of them go away for an extremely long time," said Gunnery Sgt. Johnnie Walker, a public affairs officer. Family members declined to comment.

Mine clearing detail, first in house to check for booby traps, point man to draw sniper fire. All sorts of high risk jobs needing minimal training available now. RN

LORD, don't send him to Iraq! He'd get rich robbing the dead! I think he should be taken to the frozen north, put in the middle of an iceberg,stripped naked as a jaybird,and told to walk home! If he makes it (smile) we will talk about what punishment is in store for him, beginning with a blindfold and a wall....

I think sending him to a battle feild is too good for him and not good enough for his victims. Give him a job making liscene plate pay him 75 cents an hour send his paycheck to his victims. By the time he has paid at least 50,000 or so then start his sentenc to about 20 years hard labor.

I don't think ya need to waste the money sending him alla way to Iraq. Nearest military installation of ANY stripe would be happy to accomodate him.

I'd be willing to donate to the transportation fund. Be ya could make a junior fortune selling videos of it too...

Susie Q you just don't understand the military mindset. There are ways and then there are WAYS to eliminate problem children like that within the ranks.

Old Army style was: A barracks thief was punished before he ever got to the 1st Sgt.'s office. Normally he fell down the stairs getting there. WHAT you lived in a one story building? What about the one step getting out of it?

1st Sgt.'s comment usually was "Poor lad, take him to the dispensary and have the medics check him out." Then we'll discuss punishment.

I heard a discussion between a young 2Lt. and Master Sgt. one time. It seems a thief had fell down the stairs after he was caught, and 2Lt. thought the matter should be investigated. He just could not see how the young man could get hurt so bad just falling down the stairs. The Master Sgt. patiently explained that such common mishaps did not to be investaged. He did assure the young Lt. that if any of his men ever fell up the stairs he would be more than happy for the Lt. to feel free to investigate.
