A reported threat by a senior Army officer to "Taser" another officer on trial for challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president could be a serious "command influence" issue that could taint the case, according to an expert.
A former Captain in the Judge Advocate General’s office sent a letter to Lt. Col. Lakin’s Commanding Officer calling for an investigation after the Army threatened to taser him once the hearing was over. . . .
Hemenway told the Gazette “We posted on our website rules for proper decorum in the courtroom for supporters of Lt. Col. Lakin to observe; apparently we should have sent a copy of the rules to the prosecution as well.”
