Bullying in elementary, junior high and high school is one thing but this right here does not make any sense. You would think as adults bullying would stop knowing the severity of it and what it could lead too. To make matters worse it’s those who protect and defend the freedom of our country.
Danny Chen, an American-Chinese NYC resident, committed suicide in Afghanistan due to hazing by fellow soldiers. The family has been told by investigators that soldiers taunted him with racial remarks and even threw rocks at Chen. He was also forced to wear a green helmet and shout orders in Chinese, to a battalion that had no other Chinese- American soldiers.
Sad thing is officers in charge of the company were aware of the cruel treatment to Private Danny Chen. His body was found in a guard tower, of what a military statement called “an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound” to the head.
The Army has charged eight members of Chen’s battalion in connection with his death.
