Lots of speculation and very little information in that article.

Prayers up for his family

Weird story. Hope his family gets to know what really happened and that the person(s) responsible are held accountable.

Makes some sense, but I would of thought it would take at least 3 or 4 Seals to kill a Special Forces Soldier. But I guess Team 6 is their crème de la crème so they were able to strangle him to death with just 4 hands.

Story makes it sound like maybe it wasnt really an intentional killing.

I know there have been guys we have rolled with who flat out wouldnt tap. I never like going with those guys because I'm not at the point of my life that I want a broken arm or ankle or to pass out. And I dont want to be put in a position to do that to someone else.

Hate that this happened. Terrible loss no matter how it happened.

Here’s an update. Not surprising given the history of unprofessional behaviour that has plagued that community for a while now. If this turns out to be true and that’s what started the altercation. They need to be hung or face a firing squad. RIP and thank you for what you’ve done for this country Staff Sgt. Melgar.

Well, all that I can say is that I hope it isn't true, but, if it is, death penalty.

If ST6 wanted to take out a GB, then no one would have known it was them. Im sure they could have covered it up good enough

Not these days. See Bergdahl.

I'd be interested to see the FACTS if the case. As for this particular article, it appears to be nearly all speculation. In any case, it's a bad deal.

????? I don't think the organization as a whole wanted him taken out. It sounds like 2 of their people were up to no good, were discovered and were covering loose ends. We already know for sure they lied about him being drunk.

We would have known anyways because there's probably a subsequent movie deal in the works.

Saw in on my news feed today... everybody picking it up. Curious if we'll hear the full story. Sad situation and hope some justice prevails... whatever that looks like.
