More military sexual assault news May 15, 2013

I actually find this quite depressing. There are so many fine people who serve in the U.S military. Why does this continue to happen?

“Investigators in Fort Hood, Texas, are looking into allegations that an Army sergeant sexually assaulted three female soldiers and forced one into prostitution”.

“Just a week after an Air Force lieutenant colonel working in its sexual-assault prevention office was arrested and accused of sexual battery, a second U.S. service member assigned to a military sexual assault program is being investigated for various forms of sexual misconduct, officials revealed Tuesday”.

“A U.S. Army sergeant first class, assigned to III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas, is now under investigation for pandering — a prostitution solicitation charge — abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates, the Pentagon said”.

“A Defense Department source told NBC News the publicly unidentified soldier allegedly forced at least one subordinate soldier into prostitution and sexually assaulted two others”.


You know, this article speaks for itself. Let me put a question out there: what can we educators do to help solve this problem?

Solution time folks!  It is getting worse.
