It was an honest mistake .

If Kyle carpenter hit me I would apologize and thank him and fix his car with my own money.

My fault for not wearing my glow belt

So, he thought the guy was injured, but he got up and walked away. Either way, he should have made contact.

It is completely. I am surprised they booked him for it. We would just give him a ticket.

If he wasn't drunk when the incident happened, no harm no foul...

if Kyle was, I'd buy him a beer...

This was a poor decision to drive away without assessing pedestrian's injuries and offering to wait for authorities if needed. That being said no one is above the law and at the same time hopefully forgiveness will be given from the injured.

A lot of places can't do it with personal injury unfortunate but it sounds like he is continuing to be the class act he has always been portrayed as and the police seems to be handling it as best they can

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an Automatic Rifleman with Company F, 2d Battalion, 9th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, 1st Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on 21 November 2010. Lance Corporal Carpenter was a member of a platoon-sized coalition force, comprised of two reinforced Marine rifle squads partnered with an Afghan National Army squad. The platoon had established Patrol Base Dakota two days earlier in a small village in the Marjah District in order to disrupt enemy activity and provide security for the local Afghan population. Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base Dakota when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved toward the grenade in an attempt to shield his fellow Marine from the deadly blast. When the grenade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine. By his undaunted courage, bold fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of almost certain death, Lance Corporal Carpenter reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service

I don't think he even thought he hit him.

Sounds like he stopped, the guy got up and walked across the street without any issue.

Franklin Miller commented on being viewed differently because he received the MOH. Everybody had their own ideas about what kind of person he should be and this behavior was an embarrassment to the medal. People thought he should have been this or that, but in the end he was just a crazy motherfucker who received the award for being a crazy hard assed motherfucker in combat, not helping little old ladies cross the street. If he fucked up, he fucked up, doesn't diminish what he did in Afghanistan.

Anything else would be an insult.

A MOH recipient has a free pass on life as far as I care.

MOH recipients are not your average police officer. I know this may come as a surprise to some of you. While there have certainly been countless heroic actions from amazing and selfless police officers this guy jumped on a fucking grenade. Typically when one does such a thing they are given the benefit of the doubt, right or wrong.

Also, marines do not enforce our laws nor do they actively perform arrests for violations of said laws. The idea they should be held to the same standard is asinine at best.

In a way, they are held to a higher standard than civilians.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.  Dude got hit, brushed himself off and got out of the road, he's fine.

Wait unitl the video is released of him fucking around on his phone as he stepped out in the street.  Colleges are full of dumb fucks mindlessly walking around fucking with their phones.

This plus 87. To say that I would give this Marine hero the shirt off my back would be an understatement. I would thank him for running me over, and probably be a better person by being vehichulary assaulted by him.

Shit happens. I'm sure it will work out fine.

I had a 10 year old boy claim I hit him with my car. Police investigated and filed no charges. His mother filed a claim the boy had 5 broken bones. I called the officer he came back out and saw the boy walking home from bus stop. My insurance denied the claim.
