From the NYTs:
"According to one version of events, one of the SEALs put Sergeant Melgar in a chokehold. When the sergeant passed out, the commandos frantically tried to revive him. Failing that, they rushed him to an emergency clinic, where he was pronounced dead."

So, to me, sounds like a sparring chokehold gone wrong, and they tried to save him. So all the calls for firing squads are inappropriate until the investigation is complete.

It looks like accidental death to me, but i agree let the investigation play out.
