A Green Beret is about to be kicked out of the Army for beating up an Afghan police commander who used a young boy as a sex slave.
The Blaze reports Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland and his team leader confronted the police commander. He said the commander admitted to repeatedly raping the child and laughed it off.
Martland said he body-slammed the man to the ground several times and kicked him in the ribs. The beating lasted about five minutes until the man ran away.
Now, Martland faces military justice and involuntary separation from the Army.
Retired Army Gen. Jerry Boykin said Martland is a hero and any soldier who does not defend a child from a rapist should be brought up on charges.
He spoke to CBN News about this case.
