Once again, despite the express feeling of being "ashamed" about sexual assault in the military by the President, there is a new story tonight about a military arrest – it has been reported that a Lt. Col. at Ft. Campbell who is a sexual harassment prevention officer has been arrested for a sexually-related crime.
This case is distinguishable from our previous posts because his issue was with an ex-wife with mutual restraining orders, not with subordinates. He was removed fom his position by the Army while his domestic dispute is beign resolved.
In any event, the US military has a clear institutional resistance to any change. The "chain of command" model must be changed. Without a change of the culture of the military, these episodes will continue.
This is no joke – it is a serious situation of criminal behavior.
