Army Soldier Marc Hall: Jailed Over Rap Song, HipHop Lyrics! (Photos, Footage)
Army soldier specialist Marc Hall based at Fort Stewart, Georgia has been jailed after being accused of threatening his fellow soldiers in a rap song!
Iraq war veteran Marc Hall has been in custody since December for allegedly writing a rap song against the Armyâ€™s controversial stop loss policy and mailing it to the Pentagon. The stop loss policy makes it legal for the army to extend a soldierâ€™s deployment or service beyond their designated time in the military. Hall posted the song on the Internet and in the lyrics he threatened to kill Colonels, Captainâ€™s, Kernels, E-7â€™s and above, using his M4 assault rifle if he was sent off for another tour in Iraq.
Army officials have charged Hall for conduct prejudicial to the good order, discipline of the Armed Forces, and threatening violence on multiple occasions.
Marc Hall’s lawyer says lyrics should not be taken literally.
