and we had a conversation about this topic this morning.......and he agrees with Trump....including his following statement about how only 240 +/- cases were actually prosecuted because it's a military case and those cases are so backlogged and take so long to bring to a tribunal that most cases are rarely able to be heard before people leave or are mustered out anyhow. He wants that process sped up in order to get justice for the thousands that never make it to court. I don't know if you remember this particular case back in 1991, but it was an continues to be a huge scandal that actually brought a light to what was happening in all branches of the military. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tailhook_scandal
Positions of power will always have the black cloud of superiority and the attitude of "I'm the boss and can do as I please" surrounding that power....whether you are in the military or in a civilian position (look at Ailes, and many government levels in local, State, and Federal government, including the President). Nobody is immune to it and it's been the downfall of many through the years.
As long as anybody believes they are in positions that can influence or intimidate others, you will continue to have these situations come up, but the justice system in the military especially needs to be overhauled to make it abundantly clear that justice will be swift for the victims and stop protecting and mollycoddling the perpetrator instead (thanks to liberal bleeding hearts). I'm a firm believer that we need to have tiered court systems.....minor crimes such as shoplifting etc need to be in a court that only handles those types of crimes and major crimes such as rape and murder need to have their own tier so justice comes rapidly instead of two or three years before they are brought to a backlogged roster. The same has to be done in the military tribunal system.
