Deborah Scroggin, a reader from Florida writes this, and more:
“I believe asking the military chain of command to police itself with regard to sexual assaults is just as ridiculous as a CPA firm performing its own audit. There has to be an unbiased third party and/or panel that can investigate and prosecute so there is no internal sphere of influence.
It’s only fair, for someone who volunteers to serve for our country, that they receive the same personal safety rights that any U.S. citizen receives! It’s just plain sad that military personnel would turn on each other in the first place, especially when they are supposed to have each others’ backs.”
