Was the victim shot as a consequence of his military service or as a consequence of his actions as a private citizen?

Did the victim represent himself in uniform, as a marine? If so he violated the UCMJ because he cannot legally represent the USMC at a political event without command authority. Is it your suggestion that his command authorized it? If not, then he did not represent himself as a Marine.

You posed your question as a consequence of action, not a legality of action.
You are wrong, again. and doubly so, because the marine was not dressed in uniform.

Lets see, you are in a riot, facing a guy with a tear gas gun, be told what to do by police with bullhorns. What DO YOU THINK is going to happen? Those guys disgraced their uniforms (not talking about the cops)

Who was in uniform, besides the cops?
It's the right and duty of citizens to disobey unreasonable orders from anyone. The same goes for those in uniform, or so was said at the Nuremberg trials.

The wounded marine is pictured dressed in a t-shirt and jeans.
The fascists are really coming out of the wood work on this issue.

I don't think he is a current member of the Marines, is he?

"Once a Marine, Always a Marine: This truism is now the official motto of the Marine Corps League. The origin of the statement is credited to a gung-ho Marine Corps master sergeant, Paul Woyshner. During a barroom argument he shouted, "Once a Marine, always a Marine!" MSgt. Woyshner was right. Once the title "U.S. Marine" has been earned, it is retained. There are no ex-Marines or former-Marines. There are (1) active duty Marines, (2) retired Marines, (3) reserve Marines, and (4) Marine veterans. Nonetheless, once one has earned the title, he remains a Marine for life."

USMC Slogans

That is correct, although there are no former Marines.
I have no idea why or how some idiots think he was in uniform.
