Deserter Gets a Year in Prison

The SSG who deserted his unit while it was in Iraq only got a year in jail. He is still claiming that this betrayal arose from his conscience - a convenient assertion after you have abandoned your fellow soldiers.

To frame this a little, here is some information about this malfunction's father:
Mejia Godoy is Nicaragua's most prominent leftist singer and songwriter.

He wrote the line "Let's fight the Yankee, enemy of humanity" into the anthem for the Sandinista National Liberation Front, which ruled Nicaragua from 1979 to 1989.
The apple appears not to have fallen far from the tree.
