    US Air Force Rape Scandal

    A drill instructor accused of raping and sexually assaulting 10 female trainees at Lackland Air Force Base was sentenced on Saturday to 20 years in prison, the stiffest jail term handed down yet in the biggest sex scandal to hit the U.S. military since the 1990s. Staff Sergeant Luis Walker, found guilty by a military jury on Friday of 28 charges
    Walker is the first of seven instructors at Lackland referred for court-martial.

    Five others at the Texas base are formally under investigation, and 35 more have been taken off active duty while officials look into accusations.

    As a former Staff Sergeant/Drill Instructor it's hard for me to find words for how disgusting I find this behavior. As a Drill Instructor, you have a trenendous amount of power and influence over the young people in your charge. To abuse this power is despicable beyond belief. I hope he does the full 20.

    Lack of leadership from the top eventually filters down.
    Obama's got a lot to answer for.

    Whoa!

    Ray!

    Couldn't you have found another explosive news story about some American contract worker getting his head removed (justifiably in your opinion) by some upset jhiadist?

    There will also be other NCO's of the same rank that were fully aware of what was going on but did nothing. I hope they hang their heads in shame.

    According to the article, five more are under investigation, and an additional thirty-five have been removed from duty while the investigation proceeds. It's a start.

    Well, that's certainly relevant in a thread about sexual abuse at Lackland AFB, Texas.

    Couldn't you think of a better deflection?
