The sheep drinking the kool-aid, as righteous statuses now start doing the rounds on social media about those horrors of human beings who murdered the soldier in London, and how if you show any ‘support’ for Muslims across the board in any way, you will be wiped from their friend list.
Please wipe me because I am sick to death of ignorant people who cannot think for themselves.
If we had to wipe friends because somebody of their faith committed an atrocity somewhere in the world, not a soul would have friend.
I just feel despair when I read all the dumbarse comments as they jump on the bandwagon.
(Content note: military sexual trauma, rape culture, hostility to consent]
After nearly two years of requests from Stars and Stripes, the U.S . Army finally released the 28-page report of a task force convened to address the problems of sexual assault at Army installations in South Korea.
If you have the spoons, you may want to read the whole thing1, as it very thoroughly goes over the rape culture problem of the Army, many of which are familiar territory (i.e., survivors are afraid to speak out for fear of being disciplined themselves; there are insufficient numbers of female unit victim advocates, etc.)
The report particularly singles out problems in the leadership . It notes, for example, that sexual assault prevention isn’t taken seriously, but “perceived as a mandated check-the-block requirement to be quickly completed rather than training to a level of working knowledge.” In light of that, it is depressing but unsurprising that the task force’s findings also included the following (bold emphasis mine):
There is a lack of knowledge among leadership about how to handle reported sexual assaults .
The report implied that leaders, along with their subordinates, might not even be able to distinguish between consensual sex and sexual assault .
Questions remain about what constitutes consent, the draft said.
“Might not even be able to distinguish.” “Questions remain.” Sure.
And is the Army getting right on task with addressing the report’s findings ?
Well, not so much:
According to military officials at the time, the task force was initially scheduled to present its findings to the Eighth Army commander within a matter of months.
However, nearly two years later, Eighth Army officials say that the report has yet to be finalized and approved by leadership, even though some of the task force s recommendations, such as the installation of closed-circuit cameras in barracks, were enacted more than a year ago.
I have plumbed the depths of my vocabulary of profanities, and still I find no words for how contemptible this is.
Mark Cox, 22, who is appearing at court after breaking into a woman s house to steal her knickers and SEX TOYS
A police officer s son with a bizarre underwear fetish broke into a woman s house to steal her knickers and SEX TOYS, a court heard.
Mark Cox, 22, pocketed a set of house keys belonging to former school pal Emma Pinches, 21, after going to a party at her home in February.
The hospital porter then used the keys to let himself in to the property while Emma was out to pinch her underwear and DILDOS.
Magistrates heard she became suspicious when items of lingerie and sex aids started to go missing over the next few weeks.
Prosecuting Julie Costello said: The day after the party the victim noticed a set of house keys were missing.
Over the next few days she started to notice that items of her underwear were going missing as well as her sex toys.
Emma suspected Cox may be responsible when she received a text from him in March to ask whether she would be out with her boyfriend that evening.
Police then searched Cox s home and found a large quantity of women s underwear, sex toys and lubricant.
When asked why he had a large sized bra he told them it was because he was a large size .
Officers also discovered CS gas spray as well as a police helmet, handcuffs, jacket and stab vest in his bedroom.
Cox claimed he had bought the police uniform items off eBay to use for kinky role-playing sex romps with his ex-girlfriend.
At Northampton Magistrates Court on Monday Cox pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary, one count of possessing a weapon designed for the discharge of CS gas and possessing a police uniform.
Defending Alistair Evans revealed his client had taken the items at a time when he was being driven by a fetish for women s underwear.
He said his client had bought the police uniform as memorabilia because his father and grandfather were both police officers.
He added: He accepts he had taken the items of underwear from the victim s house but there was no element of vandalism and he had caused no form of damage to the woman s house.
The CS spray was bought from a garage in France.
It has never been used.
The court was told Cox has since undergone counselling in a bid to overcome his underwear addiction.
He will be sentenced at Northampton Crown Court next month.

Army Pvt. Anna Moore spotted the man approaching as she knelt on the hallway floor, scraping off a dingy layer of wax. He was a sergeant from another battery with no apparent reason for entering the empty third floor of her barracks.
Why was he there, she wondered.

By Jim Miklaszewski, Courtney Kube and Jeff Black, NBC News The head of the Army s equal opportunity and sexual assault-prevention office at Fort Campbell, Ky., has been relieved of his duties, the Pentagon said. He is the third sex-abuse prevention officer to be dismissed in the past to 10 days.
However, the Fort Campbell Army officer, whose name was not released, was dismissed over a domestic dispute with his wife, not a sexual-assault case, the Pentagon said. The Army lieutenant colonel was arrested by civilian authorities for violating a protective order that was sought by his estranged wife, according to the Pentagon . The couple are in the process of getting a divorce .
The officer was released today on a $15,000 bond.
He holds a protective order against his wife, as well. Two other cases involving sex-assault prevention officers do involve sex-abuse-related charges. On Tuesday, the Pentagon said an Army sergeant first class, assigned to III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas, is under investigation for allegedly forcing at least one subordinate into prostitution, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates .
He has been suspended from his duties pending an investigation. Sen . Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is joined by colleagues on Capitol Hill while introducing sexual assault legislation that would reform the military justice system.
On May 6, the Air Force officer in charge of that service’s sexual-assault program, Lt . Col . Jeff Krusinski, was arrested in an Arlington, Va .
parking lot1 for allegedly groping a woman. Krusinksi was charged with sexual battery and removed from his position pending an investigation. Sen .

WASHINGTON (AP) The Army‘s top officer is telling soldiers that after demonstrating courage and resilience in 12 years of war, it’s time for them to make the fight against sexual assault their primary mission.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno sent a message to the force Thursday saying that sexual assault and harassment violate the trust between soldiers and leaders and are contrary to Army values.
He told soldiers at Fort Riley, Kansas, that the increase in military sexual assaults leads people to believe that the Army is unable to police its own ranks .
He says sexual harassment and sexual assaults “eat at the very core of what we are about trust.”
Odierno and other military leaders are meeting with President Barack Obama Thursday on the escalating sexual assault crisis.
WASHINGTON A soldier assigned to coordinate a sexual assault prevention program in Texas is under investigation for abusive sexual contact and other alleged misconduct and has been suspended from his duties, the Army announced Wednesday. The announcement came just one week after an Air Force officer who headed a sexual assault prevention office was himself arrested on charges of groping a woman in a parking lot. The two cases highlight a problem that is drawing increased scrutiny in the Congress and expressions of frustration from top Pentagon leaders .
Pentagon press secretary George Little said after Wednesday s announcement that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is angry and disappointed at these troubling allegations and the breakdown in discipline and standards they imply. Sen . Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued a statement Wednesday evening saying his panel is considering a number of measures to counter the problem, including changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and will act on them next month.
Tragically, the depth of the sexual assault problem in our military was already overwhelmingly clear before this latest highly disturbing report, Levin said. The Army said a sergeant first class, whose name was not released, is accused of pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates . He is being investigated by the Army Criminal Investigation Command, but no charges have been filed, the Army said.
He had been assigned as an equal opportunity adviser and coordinator of a sexual harassment-assault prevention program at the Army s 3rd Corps headquarters at Fort Hood, Texas, when the allegation arose, the Army said. To protect the integrity of the investigative process and the rights of all persons involved, no more information will be released at this time, an Army statement said. Army Secretary John McHugh apprised Hagel on Wednesday morning of the allegations against the soldier at Fort Hood and said the Army is moving forward with Hagel s instruction to retrain, re-credential and rescreen all sexual assault prevention and response personnel and military recruiters.
The announcement comes as the Pentagon continues to struggle with what it calls a growing epidemic of sexual assaults across the military . In a report last week, the Defense Department estimated that as many as 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year, based on survey results. Of those, fewer than 3,400 reported the incident, and nearly 800 of them simply sought help but declined to file formal complaints against their alleged attackers.
The military is struggling with a variety of sexual assault scandals, including an ongoing investigation into more than 30 Air Force instructors for assaults on trainees at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, and the recent arrest of the Air Force s head of sexual assault prevention on charges of groping a woman in a Northern Virginia parking lot. A police report said that Air Force Lt . Col .
Jeffrey Krusinski was drunk and grabbed a woman s breast and buttocks . The woman fought him off and called police, the report said . A judge has set a July 18 trial date in Krusinski s case.
Congressional outrage over these incidents and two recent decisions by officers to overturn jurys guilty verdicts in sexual assault cases has prompted outrage on Capitol Hill. Air Force Lt . Gen .
Craig Franklin reversed the conviction of Lt . Col . James Wilkerson, a former inspector general at Aviano Air Base in Italy, who was found guilty last year of charges of abusive sexual contact, aggravated sexual assault and three instances of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.
And Sen . Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., is holding up the nomination of Air Force Lt . Gen .
Susan Helms, tapped to serve as vice commander of the U.S . Space Command, until McCaskill gets more information about Helms decision to overturn a jury conviction in a sexual assault case. Lawmakers are pursuing legislation that would strip officers of that power to overturn convictions .
Members of Congress also met at the White House with senior administration officials to talk about measures to encourage more victims to come forward and ensure that perpetrators face justice.
