Army Sexual Assault Coordinator Accused Of Abusive Sexual Conduct

Well, here we go going:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army says the coordinator of a sexual assault prevention program at Fort Hood, Texas, is under investigation for “abusive sexual contact” and other alleged misconduct. He has been suspended from all duties.

The announcement Wednesday evening came just days after the arrest of the Air Force’s head of sexual assault prevention on charges of groping a woman in a northern Virginia parking lot.

The Army said a sergeant first class, whose name was not released, is accused of pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates.

This comes less than a week after an Air Force officer  in a similar position was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in Virginia.

    Er…Doug I think you might mean “Sexual Assault Prevention Coordinator” or else they really have quite the bureaucracy in the military.

  2. John Peabody says:

    Yes, let’s be sure to coordinate out sexual assaults…

    Considering how rapid and orchestrated the response has been since the story of Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski broken last week, I suspect activist coordiation and planning.

    I suspect that activist had military sexual harassment media/social network campaign already planned and were just waiting for an incident to put it into motion.

    However, it is hard to figure out what the agenda of the activist is. Does it have to do with women in combat? Does it have to do with lowering the publics opinion of the military to help with future budget cuts?

  4. @superdestroyer: Right, because sexual assault isn’t wrong, shouldn’t be widely condemned, and isn’t rampant in the United States military.

    I’m sure that, some how, you will find a way that black and/or brown people are behind this. I don’t know how, but but your track record suggests you’ll come up with something.

    I am shocked… SHOCKED I tell you, the the Army’s Sexual Assault Coordinator is accused of abusive sexual conduct.

    I know I am piling on but when I read that title that was the 2nd thing to pop into my head. The 1st thing was that Doug is going to get it for this one.

    @superdestroyer: Why don’t you just blame Obama? I do.

    @OzarkHillbilly:

    Really, he’s just working hard to live up to the title the Army has seen fit to give him.

  9. Apparently even sexual assault prevention suffers from regulatory capture problems.
