  1. Bill Calley is still an unrepentent mass murderer. Hopefully, he will not get a taxpayer paid funeral when he kicks the bucket. I hope the ghosts of those 500+ souls he helped kill are waiting for him on the other side.

  2. Lt. William Calley was the only soldier convicted in the deaths of those 504 men, women, and children and subsequent cover-up. He served a mere 3 1/2 years of house arrest. This article has a recent picture of Calley. That article notes:

    William Calley – who has never demonstrated the slightest desire to make his peace with the Vietnamese people – was not even willing to discuss it this week. Unless, of course, he received a fat fee.

    “Meet me in the lobby of the nearest bank at opening time tomorrow, and give me a certified cheque for $25,000, then I’ll talk to you for precisely one hour,” he drawled nauseatingly.

    When we showed up at the appointed hour, armed not with a cheque but a list of pertinent questions, Calley scuttled away from the line of fire. It was an option the man who led the My Lai Massacre never afforded to his innocent victims.
