Mattis is considering whether to cut short the prison terms for Pennington and Hutchins, Marine spokesman Lt. Col. Sean Gibson said Tuesday.

As a reminder, the North County Times put out a poll with the question, "Do you support the murder conviction of squad leader Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins in the Hamdania case?" just after his conviction. Final Results were:

Yes 37 Votes(14%)
No, too strong 219 Votes(84%)
No, too lenient 6 Votes(2%)


So....I'm not suggesting Lt. Gen. Mattis do what's popular, but he wouldn't be "unpopular" if he reduced Hutchin's sentence. (Pennington, too!)
