Soldier Jailed Over Hip-hop Song

Thursday, January 14, 2010

After four years of service, Spc. Marc Hall hoped he would be out of the Army by February, when his term was supposed to end. But he was told last fall that we will be kept in the military ranks for a yearlong tour in Iraq. That's when he wrote a hip-hop song blasting the Army and its "stop loss" policy and describing himself going on a shooting spree.


The military considered Hall to be a threat and jailed him. In the wake of the Fort Hood tragedy, his commanders say they are being extra cautious, and are expected to decide in the coming days about a possible military trial. Marc Hall’s civil lawyer, Jim Klimaski, joins us.

Listen to Marc Hall's song, "Stop-loss."
