No Criminal Conduct Found In Posed Air Force Casket Photo

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Air Force officials in Texas say no criminal conduct has been found over a staged photo of personnel around a live airman in an open casket with a noose around his neck.

Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio on Monday said undisclosed administrative action has been taken against the individuals and the investigation is over. Lackland spokesman Gerry
Proctor says no one has been discharged.

The photo was taken in August at Fort Lee, Va., where airmen with the 345th Training Squadron took a transportation course. The photo later landed on Facebook and drew criticism for being insensitive.

An Air Force review found the photo was meant to remind students that they could be killed if they did not pay attention while loading and unloading aircraft.
