Pentagon: 1,700 Sex Assaults Reported (AP)

Military criminal investigators received 1,700 reports of sexual assault in 2004 involving at least one member of the military, the Pentagon said Friday.

I know he’s innocent until proven guilty but this guy needs to be thrown out of the service. I mean, even if he hasn’t committed any crime, he’s certainly not getting any work done.

    Reminds me of the joke about the statistic reported thusly (paraphrasing): “Every six minutes, a woman gives birth.”

    To which some wag — I’m thinking Johnny Carson but ICBW — said, “We need to find this woman, and stop her!”

    Everybody loves somebody sometime. I guess that somebody is him.

    Hilarious, I’ve always said ain’t nothin’ funnier than sexual assault. Except maybe when it involves children. That reminds me of a great one, stop me if you’ve heard it: So Archbishop Law, Joseph Ratzinger, Pope JPII, and an 8-year-old boy walk into a bar… We’ll, I forget how the rest goes, but the punchline is “sinecure at the Vatican and promotions all round”. Ha, ha, oh Lordy!
