You and your squad are out on patrol in [insert warzone here] when a member of your squad takes the chance to kill an unnarmed civilian that posed no threat to your patrol because "that fucking [insert racist slang here] was better off dead anyway".

The other members of your patrol don't seem bothered by this at all and a couple of them join in and make racist jokes about how he had it coming.

What do you do?

Same question, but your squad grabs you and tries to make you pose with them for a commeration photo of them doing something stupid like pissing on his body.

Offer to take the picture, and don't say a fucking word to anyone.

Report them when we get back from patrol.

Refuse, then report them when we get back from patrol.

If there was a reason to believe I'd be in danger if I didn't participate, I'd do it and then report them after anyway. Some faggy photo doesn't make you complicit if you posed under duress.

Report them

Was thinking the same thing. Killing innocents is one of the few things that makes my stomach drop, but I'm not gonna get my shit pushed in for not posing with a dead body

As it should, since it's clear-cut murder. Killing an unarmed civilian in theater is no different than going outside on the street and shooting someone in the face. Anyone who condones this is a sociopath or a tryhard edgelord on the internet.

Report the shit out of them.

Civilians getting killed as unavoidable collateral is acceptable. Killing insurgents who were unarmed is usually illegal, and sometimes dumb; but it's not morally evil.

Whacking innocents just because? Fuckem, court martial those dudes and hang em high.

It may be practically unavoidable, but innocent people getting killed as collateral damage is never acceptable. What kind of perverse ethical theory do you follow?

Just war theory m8.

If you can't handle the fire stay out the kitchen.

Is it "good" that civilians get killed? Nah. Is it acceptable? Indeed, by definition even.
>>
>>28486071
Take his money and possessions, then kill more of the locals. Continue until the area's supply is depleted, then move on to another area.

I'm sure the loot barely pays for the ammunition and time expended, but eliminating potential local resistance will make it easier and safer for white settlers moving into the area.

You aren't thinking straight. Acceptable is a word, you don't get to change the meaning just because you didn't read books growing up. It does not mean good or desirable.

Act as enthusiastically as I can manage to, pose for the picture, maybe make some racist jokes of my own.

Go report the shit out of them as soon as I'm sure I'll be able to safely. What they did was wrong, and they deserve to be punished, but I'm not going to open myself up to potentially being killed by my squad. It would be different if I had a chance of stopping the murder from occurring, but in the scenario the civilian is dead before I can react.

If, following my report, command seemed to be ignoring the incident, I might consider taking a more public stand.

Then put on my Commissar hat and make sure the civilians who saw know that their lives are still worthless but that our resolve and discipline is total

What if that innocent civilian was likely to run back and give away your position Murphy?

What if there was already a strong civilian insurgency with popular support?

I guess my answer would depend but for sure I wouldn't be in any pictures and if I choose to be complicit, then I'm going to smash that camera on a rock or something to keep everyone out of trouble. Life has taught me the weak will try to drag others down with them and anyone taking pictures is weak, weak and stupid.

By my squad, do you mean I'm Squad Leader?

If the answer is yes, the next time I'm alone with that guy, I'll take a rifle off a head insurgent and shoot him in the head.

I mean, killing civilians is wrong and whatever, but the important thing is that having somebody that stupid is a danger to the squad.

Both because he clearly can't follow orders, and he's stupid enough to take pictures of it. I wouldn't want to bring down CID on our asses, because that would probably just make things worse and harm the war effort, but I definitely want that guy dead.

>tfw already had to deal with this situation

13 "insurgents" "ambushed" our patrol from a little shack on the side of the road, including a young girl. A grenade through an open window killed them all. Several weapons were "recovered" before the shack was torched.

The encounter was reported exactly as it occurred and life went on as per normal.
>>
>>28488377
So you worked with a psycho who blew up 13 innocent people with a grenade, and did nothing about it?
>>
>>28488488
What could I do? It would have been just as easy to report that I got shot in the firefight. The base CO knew exactly what happened and said, and did nothing. Nobody wanted to know. Making it public would get more of our people killed and just make things worse, if I even got that far and didn't have an unfortunate accident. And now it's just a piece of paper in an office somewhere.

What exactly would you have me do.
