I have gone ahead and tagged this article as I am concerned about the subject's notability, as the subject appears to fail WP:SOLDIER. Furthermore, the soldier was not notable outside of a single event of that individual's life, and therefore falls under WP:BLP1E, and thus the subject should be redirected to that notable event.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 08:48, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Factually incorrect and biased
This article is factually incorrect and misleading in many regards. In particular:
- The hazing incidents, as reported in media accounts, occurred during basic training rather than during his deployment to Afghanistan. The soldiers charged in relation to his death were not present during his basic training.
- Chen was assigned "excessive guard duty" because he was judged by his superiors to be an incompetent soldier, to the point where they found him incapable of going on patrol.
- The incident that led to his death was due to negligent behavior on his part, that caused his platoon-mates to react badly. It had nothing whatsoever to do with his ethnicity.
The real villains in this case were the Army bureaucrats who sent an unprepared soldier, as a replacement for battle casualties, into an intense combat zone. Naturally, their culpability has never been brought up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:02, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
