Insufficient information in the article to make a useful comment. The right to a job upon return is not absolute. For example, if the prosecutor's office downsized the amount of lawyers they have (and Baltimore has been doing some layoffs, exactly where I don't know), it is quite possible that his position no longer exists regardless of his military service. As someone with under a year's seniority, it seems quite likely he'd be one of the people facing the chop in a downsizing.
He's a lawyer. It's a far greater injustice that he wasn't drowned at birth, then this wouldn't have happened. It's his parents' fault, they made him homosexual as well. No wonder he yearned to kill babies, why else did he join up?
Bloody journos, they never get a story right, do they?
