Navy Decides NOT to Charge Officer Who Defended Others from Jihadists With His Own Gun

On Saturday, I reported that Lt. Commander Timothy White was in the crosshairs of the US Navy for “illegally discharging” his gun on federal property as he attempted to save lives during the Islamic jihad that was waged in Chattanooga by Mohammad Abdulazeez. Now, it’s being reported that the Navy has confirmed that it will not charge Lt. Commander White in the matter.

Stars and Stripes reports:

WASHINGTON — Lt. Cmdr. Tim White, the Navy officer who fired a sidearm in defense during the attack on Navy Operational Support Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., will not face charges, an official familiar with the investigation told Stars and Stripes on Wednesday.

White was reported to be one of two servicemembers carrying sidearms at the time of the attack, which could have led to charges. The Department of Defense prohibits all military personnel other than security forces from carrying arms while on base unless they are in a combat zone.
