Sick Fuck Soldier Who Killed Handcuffed Iraqi Is Freed

Dayton Paper: Soldier Who Killed Handcuffed Iraqi Is Freed:

An American soldier convicted in the fatal shooting of a handcuffed Iraqi cow herder in 2004 was freed from a military prison in Oklahoma on Friday, more than a year before his sentence was up, the Dayton Daily News reported today.

Army Spec. Edward Richmond Jr., 22, of Gonzales, La., was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced in August 2004 to three years in prison for the April 28, 2004, shooting death of Muhamad Husain Kadir in the village of Taal Al Jal, which is about 40 miles southwest of Kirkuk.

Richmond was released on parole, his attorney said Friday.

'He told me this morning it feels good to be free,' said Richmond's father, Edward Richmond Sr.

The shooting was one of two of Iraqi civilians during a 10-day period by members of the same Hawaii-based platoon, the HHC 1/27th Mortar platoon.
