Reporting A Crime Is As Bad As Committing It

Another fun story I have is from MOS school. I am a generator mechanic, so I went to Courthouse Bay for MOS school. Courthouse Bay is kind of known as a haven for alcoholic junior Marines, so it really sucked being there. My class was full of idiots who got drunk every Wednesday night (seriously, who the fuck gets drunk on a Wednesday?), even though students are not allowed to drink on weekdays, especially in the barracks. They would go around every Wednesday night (Thursday morning, technically) around 0200 and bang on everyone’s doors. They did this to my room way more often than any other room because they knew it bothered me. After this went on for a couple months, I told them that if they did it again, I would report them to the AOD. They thought I was just bullshitting them because I was known as the wet blanket of the class.

Well, they decided to do the same shit the next week. I sat there in bed listening to them smack on the door and yell for a good ten minutes before I opened the door and bitched them out. I gave them one final ultimatum: go away, and I won’t tell the AOD. They didn’t go away. So, I marched my ass down to the duty hut, called the AOD, and had them all reported. Now, because my training company had gotten in so much trouble recently with underage drinking and drinking in the barracks, the AOD worked with our company CO to keep this under wraps. Our CO decided that a fair punishment for these idiots would be a week of duty and restriction for all of them. Oh, but here’s the kicker, I also got the same punishment. Why did I get punished, you ask? Because I “snitched” on my fellow Marines, which decreases unit morale. Yeah, that’s right. Apparently I decreased unit morale by reporting a bunch of underage drinking jackasses who were violating the UCMJ. That’s what’s wrong with the Marine Corps. You have a bunch of rank chasing higher ups who really don’t give a shit about unit morale, or anything like that, but are only concerned with their own fitness reports.

    That’s some fucking bullshit

    Idiots like you is what made being in the Marines suck balls.

      Care to elaborate on this opinion?

      • Sgt Slaughter

        Yes. When I joined the Marines I was under the false belief that it was a bunch of extreme badasses, not a bunch of whiny snitches.

        When I was in Millington TN in 1988 I slapped the hell out of a punk snitch in the hallway of our barracks. Instead of fighting back like a man he went and tried to rat me out to the barracks NCO. Fortunately Cpl. N. told him to grow up and stop being such a whiny little cunt.

        This sentence: “They did this to my room way more often than any other room because they knew it bothered me” is very telling. The fact that he thinks a little drunken rowdiness is a “crime” and the fact that he would write “even though students are not allowed to drink on weekdays, especially in the barracks” is even more evidence that this post was written by a momma’s boy sissy.

        I agree with the basic premise of this site (i.e., that the Marine Corps sucks ass) but the reason it sucks ass is because of little fairy snitches who get all butthurt if other people don’t follow the rules. Boo hoo hoo bitch.

          I don’t think that he would say that “drunken rowdiness” was the crime. They actually have three crimes under their belts 1) It’s MOS school so 90% of them were drunk underage, 2) Regardless of their age, they were drunk when it was specifically not authorized, and 3) They’re doing drunken antics at 0200, when they have to be up at 0600 to get breakfast and go to class; that means that they were all drunk on duty on a weekly basis.

          Meanwhile, the Author’s main crime is that he wanted to get some sleep. Realistically, he didn’t report them for drinking, he reported them for drinking and then being pricks about it. Had they wanted to get drunk in the barracks and stay in their rooms and play xbox, I don’t think he would’ve cared about what the rules were. But the combination of breaking the rules and being pricks about it was what got them busted.

          On top of this, a large number of students were running around and banging on doors, and it was just him telling them to leave him alone and let him sleep. I think that ruled out the idea of “slapping the hell” out of them, and made reporting them his best option.

          Lastly, something to consider: If it’s ok to ignore orders that you find inconvenient (i.e. assault, underage drinking, etc) does that mean it would be ok for any Pvt. or PFC to ignore any orders that you gave them if they found that your orders were inconvenient to them?

            I know that if I had was my NCO, I wouldn’t do what he told me, ever. And if he tried to punish me for it, I would bring up some dirt I have on him and punish him back.

            In the MC, you always make sure you have dirt on corrupt NCO’s. You have to protect yourself.

            I despise the concept of giving or receiving orders, which is one reason (of many) why I got out when my contract was up. I ignored more orders than I followed during my time in the Suck so it would be rather hypocritical of me to object to others doing the same. Fuck the Suck and fuck snitches too, as they are tools of the Suck.

          If you are so uptight about Marines being Marines, What about Honor, Courage and Commitment? is it being a bitch if a Marine reported a wrongdoing of another Marine?

          I say he did his job to make USMC better. he stood up for what is right. People like Sgt Slaughter needs to get out from USMC because he is the reason why we got so many hypocrites these days

    i feel bad for you man

  • Da_Grind_on_My_Mind

    How about the fact he knew this was going on before and didn’t say anything? You damn right you got duty. So snitch when it’s convenient for you right??? If I was a CO I would have locked your whole class down until it was time for you to hit the fleet. You for being a snitching whiney bitch and the other guys for being annoying assholes. Further more, I would have told the class WHY you assholes are on lockdown. Just be happy he didn’t bust all of you little turds down in rank.


      Let me see if I have this straight: Because he decided to give the other marines in his unit a chance to correct themselves before reporting them to the CO, he’s the bad guy too? Call me crazy, but I have a strange suspicion that – had he gone to his CO right away – you’d still be here calling him a “snitch”.

      Do you really mean to tell me that, in all of your years in the marines, you’ve never given anyone a break? You’ve never said “Look, I’m gonna let this go, ONCE. Fix it, and if it happens again it’s getting run up the chain.”? Really, there are so many minor infractions that happen every day in the corps that either you’ve done this, or you’ve singlehandedly ruined the careers of entire battalions worth of marines. I’m reasonably certain that the latter is not the case. So doesn’t that make you no better than the “whiney little snitch” you so despise?

      By the way, on our home page, we have 4 basic rules for posting here. I’d suggest that – if you return – you start abiding by them (especially #1).
