Literal 'Jody' Sentenced To 15 Years For Living In Deployed Soldier's Home, Stealing His Stuff
"Jody" is an actual dude who exists and he briefly lived in a deployed service member's house and stole some of his shit, according to The Montana Standard.
"I was not out to harm a man that served our country," Hunt said in court, according to The Standard.
Though he didn't steal anyone's girlfriend, 39-year-old Erik Hunt was sentenced to 15 years for squatting in a soldier's home, stealing and selling his stuff, and going on a crime spree after that for good measure.
The literal Jody tried to explain that he and his girlfriend were homeless and just needed a place "to get warm," according to AP. However, he stayed warm for about two to three weeks all while simultaneously pulling a royal dick move by selling off the televisions and tools of a guy half a world away in Iraq, completely oblivious.
After his initial arrest Hunt worked out a plea deal for five years in jail, but that went down the toilet after he was released from jail and a couple weeks later decided to steal a truck and items from the local Kmart, Walmart, and Universal Athletic — all while carrying around meth.
On a positive note, at least Hunt is no longer homeless.

On Feb. 19, 1945, more than 70,000 U.S. Marines conducted an amphibious assault to take the Island of Iwo Jima from fortified Japanese forces. Over the next 36 days nearly 7,000 Marines would be killed during the battle, which is regarded as one of the bloodiest of World War II, as they faced hidden enemy artillery, machine guns, vast bunker systems and underground tunnels. Of the 82 Marines who earned the Medal of Honor during all of World War II, 22 medals were earned for actions on Iwo Jima.
Now, 75 years later, 28 Marines and Sailors who fought on Iwo Jima gathered to remember the battle at the 75th and final commemoration sunset ceremony Feb. 15, 2020, at the Pacific Views Event Center on Camp Pendleton, California.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), has long been seen as an apologist for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, whom she met during a secret trip to Damascus in January 2017.
Most recently, a video was posted on Twitter shows Gabbard evading a question about whether Assad is a war criminal.
Since Gabbard is the only actively serving member of the military who is running for president — she is a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard — Task & Purpose sought to clarify whether she believes Assad has used chlorine gas and chemical weapons to kill his own people.
