This is not a murder this is a mutiny, Parlatore charged. This is a group of young disgruntled sailors that didnt like being told that they were cowards and so they decided they conspired to take down the chief. They made up a story and thats why were here. On Friday, SEAL Team 7s Dalton Tolbert testified that he fired a warning shot at an old man during their 2017 tour and afterwards the man was hit by another shot. He claimed he later heard a voice on radio say you guys missed him but I got him and it sounded like Gallagher. But he replied to the defense that he didnt know where the shot came from. Regarding the stabbing of the ISIS militant, Tolbert said he arrived after the prisoner had died but he later heard Gallagher say something to the effect of: I thought you guys were cool with it. One of the SEALs told the court on Tuesday that hed seen Gallagher shoot at an elderly Iraqi man and group of women as they collected water from a river.  This is a group of young disgruntled sailors that didnt like being told that they were cowards, the lawyer said and added they made the story up.

Brian John, Capt. Rugh on Thursday. Scott claims he was one who killed the ISIS militant boy However Tolberts testimony could be affected by group texts he sent regarding the trial, which he claims were sent in frustration. He wrote: Im going to burn this mother asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk g courthouse to the ground, the defense team claims one read. Tolbert is also said to have messaged other SEALs: Somebody fire this p asterisk asterisk asterisk y a asterisk asterisk f asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk g judge and This legal process is a joke. Navy SEAL, Joshua Vriens testified Friday that he saw one girl in a group of 12 to 14 year olds clutch her stomach and fall. But he didnt see Gallagher shoot her. On Thursday, SEAL medic Corey Scott shockingly testified that he was the one who killed the boy and not Gallagher.    Another group of SEALs radioed Gallaghers men to tell them they had him and other witnesses testified that the Chief said leave him, hes all mine.   A SEAL says he thinks he heard Gallagher pictured say: You guys missed him but I got him after an old man was shot in Iraq He stabbed the boy in his neck and in his side, they testified. The boy had a collapsed lung and couldnt breathe so Gallagher opened his throat to insert a breathing tube, he testified.  One SEAL claimed that he tried to justify it by calling him just an ISIS dirtbag once he had died.  Scott told the court he covered the hole because he thought the boy would be killed by Iraqi forces anyway and he didnt want him to be tortured. Scott said Gallagher did stab the boy in the side. Gallagher has claimed he only tried to give him help. Photos shown to the court also showed him posing with the boy, holding him up by the head.   Hes got a wife and family, Scott added on the stand about Gallagher. I dont think he should spend the rest of his life in prison.    But Navy prosecutor, Lt. Brian John, hit back: You can stand up there, and you can lie about how you killed the ISIS prisoner so Chief Gallagher does not have to go to jail.    Scott may now face perjury charges and the prosecution plans to continue with the case. Court will resume on Monday and the case will rest Tuesday or Wednesday.  Gallagher, who has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder stemming from his 2017 tour of duty in Iraq By posting your comment you agree to our .
