Three Marines May Face Charges Related to “Hazing” in Connection With the Suicide of a Fellow Marine

Three Marines based in Hawaii are accused of beating and taunting Harry Lew hours before be killed himself in April of this year.

These Marines allegedly forced Lew to perform “excuciating excersises in his full combat gear,” poured sand on his face, kicked him, and threatened to beat him up - all because he would fall asleep while manning a guard post. Lew's father believes that allegations of his son's poor performance on the job was just an “excuse to beat him up.”

At a hearing on Sept 8, a judge will decide whether to recommend charges.
