Well, this certainly doesn’t look good:

(CNN) – An officer in the Air Force’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office has been arrested and charged with sexual battery, police in Virginia said.

Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, 41, was arrested just after midnight Saturday in Arlington, Virginia, and is accused of grabbing a woman’s breasts and buttocks, Arlington County police said.

I’m guessing alcohol was involved.

    Some tend to put the military on a pedestal! They appear to be able to do no wrong in the eyes of some. It’s disgusting what this guy did but he like others who may wear another kind of uniform as in cops, doctors, priest etc think they are above the law and can do what they like and get away with it.
