MILITARY BRASS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO FREE RAPISTS AND SUBVERT JUSTICE

Congress must ignore Secretary of Defense Hagel and reform how cases of rape are handled by top officers in our military.  A general should not have the power to set aside guilty verdicts and freeing rapists to rape again. A general should not be able to deny justice to the men and women who are sexually assaulted while in military service.  For decades the military has been an all boys club.  Now women serve along with the men. It’s 2013!  Victims of sexual assault should not be denied justice. RAPE IS A VIOLENT CRIME! Whether in civilian life or the military, rapists must be punished, not rewarded with other opportunities to rape again.  Our Commander-in-Chief has pledged his support to victims of sexual assault in the military.   —GoodOleWoody
