  The judgement need a fair hearing. There must a reason for the pass, besides, he has the right to go for a pass. For him to shoot the officer was out of anger management, which should have been a manslaughter case rather than dead  sentence. There is always  procedural bias in any court marshal involving commissioned an non-commissioned officers in the military, the case need to be revisited.

Pass or no pass, is not an enough reason to commit murder. He is just an evil soldier. It would have been better to keep asking for the Pass with more serious reasons or use other senior officers to beg for the Pass. He killed him, the Pass he didn't get, his planned trip  never happened, he was detained and now to die by by firing squad. Is he not foolish?
