IF anything actually comes of it.
Remember My Lai: 500 people dead, many after being repeatedly raped, and one person was convicted and spent three years under house arrest.

However, with that said, it's good that cell phone videos exist so this guy is even charged, rather than the whole thing just being hushed up.
