Brazilian prostitute collar bone broken when 3 U.S. marines threw her out of a moving Embassy car

Probe found four Obama officials hired prostitutes in Brasilia nightclub.

The three marines on a U.S. Embassy security team, and an Embassy staff member, were pulled out of the country before police were able to press charges, according to Brazil's Jornal Nacional programme.

This latest incident, which happened in November last year, came to light after U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in Brazil during a Latin American tour, was questioned about it by a Brazilian reporter during a press conference.

According to a Brazilian police investigation, the four U.S. Embassy officials had visited a nightclub in the centre of Brasilia where they had hired a group of prostitutes.

One of the Americans and at least one woman left the club by taxi, but Ms Ferreira and another women got into an official U.S. Embassy van with the other three men.

As they pulled away there was a discussion about how much the women were to be paid, and one of the marines pushed Ms Ferreira out of the car, where she ended up being run over by the vehicle.

...Romilda said she tried to hold on to the door but was dragged under the wheels.

She said: 'I tried to get up and grabbed the doorknob. That was when they told the driver to go. Then I felt my leg burning. I let go and fell underneath the van. I hit my head and passed out.'

The Americans then allegedly drove away without offering assistance.

Police investigating the incident requested the arrest of the driver of the van and one of the marines for bodily injury and failure to rescue.

But U.S. authorities removed the four men from the country before they could be charged with the crimes

“Knuckleheads” throwing perfectly good whores under the bus (van).

Where in the world would they ever get such an idea?

If true, it sure IS a CIC cover-up.

I don’t think this is really something to make jokes about. Just because she is a prostitute, she does not deserve to be tossed out of a car and run over. These Marines should be investigated and punished for this lack of respect for human lives.

I don’t have a problem with the U.S. wisking them out of the country to serve their punishment in a U.S. prison, and I think that is what will happen, but I really don’t think it is proper for Free Republic folks to make jokes like this.

Nothing restores respect for America in these countries like encouraging the local hooker trade and then throwing live women from moving cars. /sarc

Apparently they had their ranks reduced. Seems like a slap on the wrist for attempted murder...

LOL! I remember when I was in high school I went to a rock concert with these guys from school. After the concert, some of the guys picked up these tatooed girls with language that could make a sailor blush.

While driving home, at about 2 in the morning we stopped the van at this gas station so the girls could use the bathroom. I remember I was going to get out to use the bathroom too, but then Corey, the driver said “if you want a ride home, don’t get out.” Then he took off leaving the goth girls behind!

Excuse me?? I made NO joke of this...in fact I agree with the poster who DOES take this seriously. As the CIC, the PRESIDENT is where the buck stops on these *directly* CIC-related thuggish and criminal activities (if true.)

Perhaps you misdirected your scoldings to the wrong FReeper??? If not, you're just plain nuts. Read my post.

When I was in high school, we also had a place where you could go cruising to meet those types of girls. It was the same Pittsburgh neighborhood where Dick Morris' toe-sucking woman grew up.

Sorry, I was not directing my comments at you. You were just the last comment prior to my adding my comments. I was not attacking you. I was just using the last message to respond. Don’t be upset. I am a bit crazy though.

Hey, no problem. But posting using your method will have you making plenty of other false accusations. I think I get it now--you may have been treating this as a live-show thread.

And I'm known to misbehave :-) every now and then, also.

Any military types know what whould have happened to to less high-profile marines involved in something like this at other foreign postings - say in Germany or Iraq?

Are you subject to local jurisdiction as well as the UCMJ?

Marine Security Guards usually carry Diplomatic Passports. If the embassy believes that they were guilty, they’d be flown out the next morning to the Security Guard Battalion HQS at Quantico. I don’t think non-judicial punishment would be meted out; rather, I believe, they’d be reduced in grade and either discharged with prejudice or if it were serious enough, they could end up on the rock hockey team. I’m sure that the leadership of the battalion would not be amused by the Marines’ misconduct, and bringing their outstanding record into disrepute.

I tried to get up and grabbed the doorknob.

What kind of van has a doorknob, anyway?

Of course not, but to see it reported - that's unusual.

“You don’t really believe that none of this stuff ever happened prior to Obama getting elected, do you?”

Nope, but why was it important NOW to release these after-incident reports?

You must not have been paying attention to all the reports of the rape allegations against Marines stationed in Okinawa in the 90s and the first decade of the 21st century.

We can thank 24/7 cable news, tweets, high-speed communications, 4G, the internet, etc. for this new way to learn things...

Perhaps to show a pattern or it just came out in the investigation?

No, they’re going to continue to dig up all incidents, in order to convince us it was at least as bad, probably even worse, since before Hussein ascended to power.

Problem is, they have to balance that with, “Then why didn’t the messiah put an end to it earlier?”

Probably the same reason no other administration put an end to this sort of behavior.

“...they’d be flown out the next morning to the Security Guard Battalion HQS at Quantico.”

So what has happened so far is pretty standard for incidents such as this?

I imagine all branches of the military deal with prostitute issues on a fairly regular basis.
