Kind of like this?Anyone who has been in the US military, especially an officer, knows that "conduct unbecoming of an officer" was the blanket rule they could get you on for basically anything.

Canadian Forces charges reservist who spoke at rally about ‘killer vaccine’ - National | Globalnews.caOfficer Cadet Ladislas Kenderesi has been charged with 'endeavoring to persuade another person to join in a mutiny.'globalnews.ca
Refusing to administer a government sanctioned poison is conduct unbecoming of an officer and apparently mutiny. My guess is that if some fat queer organized a strike against morning PT, however, he would be celebrated as a conscientious objector.
Cahill will sentence Chauvin on Friday, about two months after he oversaw the trial that ended in his conviction on charges of second- and third-degree murder, as well as second-degree manslaughter. Cahill has paved the way for Chauvin's punishment to be up to double the 15 years at the top of the range recommended under state guidelines, having ruled in May that there were four aggravating factors in Floyd's death.
In court documents filed this month, prosecutors asked that Cahill sentence Chauvin to 30 years. Chauvin's attorney, Eric Nelson, requested a downward departure from sentencing guidelines or a sentence of probation with time served.
"I think Judge Cahill is well aware that he isn't just punishing Derek Chauvin, but he's squarely in the middle of a larger conversation about whether the criminal court can be just in these types of cases," Gordon said. "I don't think anyone would be surprised if he follows the prosecution's recommendation and sentences Chauvin to 360 months. I wouldn't be."
Under sentencing guidelines, Chauvin could get a federal penalty ranging from 27 years to more than 33 years in prison, with credit for taking responsibility, Osler said. But the guidelines are not mandatory, and Osler estimated Chauvin would be sentenced toward the lower end of the range.
According to evidence in the state case against Chauvin, Kueng and Lane helped restrain the 46-year-old Floyd as he was on the ground — Kueng knelt on Floyd’s back and Lane held down Floyd’s legs. Thao held back bystanders and kept them from intervening during the 9 1/2-minute restraint.
Polling shows that before George Floyd and the nation-wide BLM riots of 2020, that support for BLM among Americans was over 50%. After these events, it dropped drastically. I would have to search to find these polls now. But there is no doubt that Floyd and the 2020 riots hurt BLM image greatly.It looks like two of the other cops involved rejected plea deals for three years. What do you guys think? I notice that on almost any MSM article about George Floyd that allows comments, most of them seem to be from people who realize Floyd was a common criminal in the course of committing yet another crime while also intoxicated, and that the cops couldn't have been expected to do anything significantly different in the situation. I don't watch Tucker, but a lot of people do and my understanding is that he's openly called Chauvin an innocent man who everyone knows is innocent, but who we have to pretend is guilty.
Do you think the tide is turning on this whole case, in the sense of how it is perceived? It often seems like even normies are pretty close to openly acknowledging the truth about it. Obviously the MSM never will, but maybe they'll at least stop holding up George Floyd as some kind of saint and martyr and stop talking about his "murder," which is the most you could expect from them.
It's a huge risk these two ex-cops are taking. The article says "The State is ready for trial" and that they'll seek longer sentences than the standard 12 years or more if they get convictions.
People will only go so far.Do you think the tide is turning on this whole case, in the sense of how it is perceived?
