Sailor Punished for Vandalizing His Own Bunk With Racist Graffiti

A Navy seaman assigned to the carrier USS George H.W. Bush has been disciplined and counseled by his unit after officials determined he staged the vandalism of his own bunk with racist graffiti and then posted about it on Facebook.

Naval Criminal Investigative Service and command officials have been investigating the claim that the sailor was targeted because of his race ever since he posted photos on Facebook on Nov. 15. The investigation wrapped up a few days ago, Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Cmdr. Dave Hecht told Military.com.

“After a thorough investigation was conducted with the assistance of NCIS, several indicators supported the conclusion that the incident was staged,” Hecht said, adding there were inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s statements.

Navy Times, which first reported on the matter, identified the sailor as 27-year-old Marquie Little, an African-American. Photos published in Little’s Facebook post, which has since been deleted, show a pillow ripped open and pieces of corrugated cardboard and other garbage stacked in Little’s rack aboard the Bush. The N-word appears to be written on the wall of the bunk in black marker.

He crapped in his own bunk.

    Who would have thought that just a couple of generations after Martin Luther King, blacks would be desperate to not be judged on the content of their character.

    His name is…. Marquie Little. If that name is not one born to fail I can’t imagine another.

    A fake hate crime. Unpossible.

    It is not his bunk. He may use it, but it belongs to Uncle Sam.

      And the vernacular must have changed, they were called racks when I was in. They may find that on his next deployment he will try to steal more anchor chain than he can swim with……..
