I knew a kid who was in the ARMY, and whose mother called his CO to complain when he was given an "unfair punishment". I'm not even talking prison or anything like that. He mouthed off to one of the cooks and had to do extra cleaning duty in the kitchen for a week.

So his mother called. To complain. Can you imagine that?!

That poor, poor, kid. I went to military school and know almost exactly what happened to that kid as a result of that call. And it wasn't pretty. Public shaming, pressure put on his peers, extra duty, extra PT. Not a good situation to be in.
