GOOD NEWS! US War Hero – Army Sgt. Derrick Miller – To Be Released from Leavenworth Prison
For several years The Gateway Pundit has reported on the plight of Sgt. Derrick Miller who sits in prison for life in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Today we are pleased to announce that Sgt. Miller will soon be released from prison!
U.S. Army National Guardsman Sgt. Derrick Miller,an American hero, from Hagerstown, Maryland, was convicted in July of 2011 for the pre-meditated murder of an Afghan man in 2010.
Sgt. Miller is father of two little girls. At the time of the shooting of the Afghan man, Sgt. Miller was assigned to a unit within the Connecticut National Guard and was attached to the 101st Airborne Division. Following his joining of the National Guard in 2006, Miller experienced three combat deployments and had been recently promoted.
Sgt. Miller is currently serving life in prison with the opportunity for parole in 2020.
Sgt. Miller shot and killed an Afghan civilian following the civilian attempting to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon during a period of intense questioning. The Afghan civilian was a suspected insurgent that was walking through Sgt. Miller’s “platoon defensive perimeter observing their defensive positions”.
Following the shooting, Sgt. Miller’s unit was attacked horrifically on all sides and the Afghan National Army fighters that were assigned to stay with the platoon disappeared prior to the onset of the firefight. They hid behind a building.
Sgt. Miller was embroiled in a firefight the night he killed the Afghan man. The Afghan man was an insurgent and yet no one in the military wants to say this and directly confront the duplicitous Afghanis. The firefight was not instigated by American soldiers; the firefight was meant to kill American soldiers, and Afghan National Army fighters were nowhere to be found.
As far as the case goes, the witnesses opposing Sgt. Miller are suspicious on two accounts. The first witness was a soldier that originally backed up the claims made by Sgt. Miller regarding the event, but when threatened with being named as an accessory and “being placed on legal hold so he could not de-mobilize”, he changed his story. The other witness was an Afghan translator that was promised citizenship in the U.S. in exchange for testimony.
This man was brought to the U.S. in January of 2011 and lived on Fort Campbell in a hotel on the base at $630 per month with a van dedicated to his transportation wherever he wanted to go – all of this was on the taxpayer dime. Morality is void in this case, save for the morality of Sgt. Miller.
Patriots gathered in Washington DC in September 2016 to protest for Sgt. Miller’s release.
It was at this time that Congressman Louie Gohmert and Congressman Brian Babin, both Texas Congressmen, became aware of Sgt. Miller’s incarceration. From that point forward, they fought for Derrick’s release and we are beholden to them for all they did for this American Son.
