    WHY am I not surprised? Toomany people take NO pride in their jobs, regardless of what they may be....It's not just sad, it's an INSULT!
    Someone, needs to be held acountable, but today we seldom see that sort of thing...The people that made the decision to do this will more than likely be promoted! There oughta be a law!

    The dumper did what he was supposed to do with stuff that is labeled "medical waste." Looks like somebody put the wrong tags on the bags deliberately. Time for a head to roll.

    There should be some common since ,these were soldiers not garbage .

    What were they thinking???

    Stupid is as stupid does....I agree with Ghrit....some idiot functionary needs to be buried in the landfill instead of the veteran's remains.....maybe then the message might get through.

    edit: A clear case of the sum of the parts being deemed less in a hole...for OH&S reasons body parts should be clearly identified as a biohazard for those charged with the responsibility of handling them, but human remains whether complete or incomplete ought not be treated like slaughterhouse offal. Clearly some policy, procedural and personnel changes are in order to prevent a recurrence.

    This should be a huge tell to all our boys and girls fighting. It's more of a Freudian slip than anything.

    When the government is done with you, you are no longer any use to them. They are nothing more than garbage, refuse.

    Off to the land fill.

    Only problem is they got caught following SOP.

    Ahhh, the great meat grinder exposed. How do you solve economic downturns and so called overpopulation? If you can't control the birth rate, control the death rate.

    So is this where the "lost" body parts reported in the news a month ago ended up?

    On a serious note - absolute and total disgrace and someone up tops head should roll - wouldn't surprise me if the very top knew about it....

    Yep that was my feeling as well. How can they treat our brothers this way. They give everything in service this is how they are repaid. There are just no words to describe the dishonor of this.

    The dishonor started before they were killed....using our military to fight corporate wars of plunder around the globe. THAT is what folks ought to be really PO'ed about.

    Time for a fair trial. I volunteer to be judge, jury and executioner. Sentence of public hanging to be carried out PDQ. Treason should not be tolerated.
