DR DEATH

I HAVE TWO REASONS TO DOUBT THE ACCOUNTS OF "SCOTT THOMAS". FIRSTLY, I ALWAYS HAVE MY DOUBTS OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD WRITE AN ACCOUNT OF THEIR OWN WRONGDOING IN THE CONTEXT THAT THEY KNOW IT IS WRONGDOING AND WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW IT. IT IS JUST UNUSUAL FOR A PERSON TO ANONYMOUSLY WANT TO GIVE A PUBLIC CONFESSION LIKE THAT. THE SECOND THING IS HIS DESCRIPTION OF HIS FELLOW SOLDIER WHO WOULD RUN OVER DOGS WITH A BRADLEY. "THOMAS" DESCRIBES HOW HE WOULD TRY TO CATCH ONE OF THE DOGS LEGS IN THE TRACKS AND THAT THE DOG WOULD THEN BE DRAGGED ALONG NEXT TO THE VEHICLE FOR A WHILE. I THINK THIS WOULD BE HARD TO ACCOMPLISH. FIRST IT WOULD BE AWFULLY HARD TO JUST RUN OVER THE DOGS LEG WITHOUT CRUSHING THE ANIMAL. SECOND, IF YOU WERE TO RUN OVER JUST A LIMB, IT WOULD MOST LIKELY EITHER BE JUST CRUSHED TO A PULP OR AMPUTATED EITHER BETWEEN THE TRACK AND THE GROUND OR BETWEEN THE ROAD WHEEL AND THE TRACK/CENTER GUIDE. THIRD, IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT LIMB ACTUALLY GOT "CAUGHT" IN THE TRACK (AS IN STUCK IN THE TINY SPACE BETWEEN TWO TRACK PADS) THE ANIMAL WOULD NOT BE DRAGGED. INSTEAD THE ANIMAL WOULD BE STUCK TO THE TRACK, STATIONARY IN RELATION TO THE GROUND, UNTIL THE TRACK REACHED THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE (WHERE I THINK THE IDLER WHEEL IS IN A BRADLEY SINCE I THINK THE DRIVE SPROCKET IS IN THE FRONT) THEN AS THE TRACK ASCENDED TO THE IDLER ON THE UPPER PART OF THE VEHICLE TO RUN BACK TO THE FRONT ON THE RETURN ROLLERS THE ANIMAL WOULD BE WHIPPED INTO THE AIR. IF THE ANIMAL WHERE TO SOMEHOW REMAIN ATTACHED TO THE TRACK AFTER IT PASSED OVER THE IDLER WHEEL THE LIMB WOULD SURELY BE AMPUTATED BEFORE THE ANIMAL COULD BE CARRIED DOWN THE ROAD BY THE VEHICLE AS THE BRADLEY HAS AN ARMORED SHEILD THAT EXTENDS DOWN OVER THE RETURNING PART OF THE TRACK, COVERING THE RETURN ROLLERS. IN SHORT, THE DESCRIPTION OF AN ANIMAL BEING STRUCK AND THEN DRAGGED NEXT TO A BRADLEY IS ESSENTIALLY IMPOSSIBLE AND HENCE IS BS.
