Target: Robert Neller, Marine Commandant General
A Muslim Marine was forced into a clothes dryer by a drill instructor who called him a terrorist before turning the dryer on and burning him, according to investigative documents. “You’re just waiting to kill us all, aren’t you, terrorist,” the instructor allegedly told the victim prior to burning him. The unidentified sergeant has been allowed to continue training recruits despite the multiple abuse allegations.
This isn’t the first time that this drill instructor has been accused of abusing recruits. Back in March, the instructor reportedly slapped a Marine with Pakistani roots right before the Marine was found dead. The 20-year-old Marine, Raheel Siddiqui, was running from the abusive instructor when he jumped from a stairwell landing that was nearly 40 feet high. His death was ruled a suicide, but his family believes that their son was targeted and abused.
It seems clear that this drill instructor is targeting Marines based on their race and then severely abusing and traumatizing them. This is racism and abuse, both of which should be intolerable by the Marine Corps. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that this drill instructor be fired and charged with hate crimes and abuse, if found guilty.
Dear Mr. Neller,
A Muslim Marine has reportedly been the victim of on-going abuse by a drill instructor who called him a terrorist and put him in a clothes dryer. The victim has been targeted and abused by a sergeant who has been accused of similar abuse in the past.
The unidentified sergeant has been allowed to continue working and training recruits despite repeated cases of alleged abuse. The Marine Corps must stop turning a blind eye and allowing abuse, racism, and hate crimes to continue. We demand that this sergeant be fired indefinitely and charged with hate crimes if the allegations are true.
[Your Name Here]
