War Veteran Jailed for Writing a Protest Song

Iraq War veteran Marc Hall wrote a rap song to express his opposition to the stop-loss policy that allows the Army to keep soldiers in the military after the end of their contracts. Hall was put in jail in December 2009 for threatening military officers because of the song.

In the song, he shows how stop-loss is a trap: “If I do drugs, I’ll get kicked out, but if my time is up I can’t get out.” Many of Hall’s supporters are protesting the Army’s recent decision to send Hall back to Iraq to face a military court.
