WASHINGTON — When President Obama proclaimed that those who commit sexual assault in the military should be “prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged,” it had an effect he did not intend: muddying legal cases across the country.
In at least a dozen sexual assault cases since the president’s remarks at the White House in May, judges and defense lawyers have said that Mr. Obama’s words as commander in chief amounted to “unlawful command influence,” tainting trials as a result. Military law experts said that those cases were only the beginning and that the president’s remarks were certain to complicate almost all prosecutions for sexual assault.
“Unlawful command influence” refers to actions of commanders that could be interpreted by jurors as an attempt to influence a court-martial, in effect ordering a specific outcome. Mr. Obama, as commander in chief of the armed forces, is considered the most powerful person to wield such influence.
The president’s remarks might have seemed innocuous to civilians, but military law experts say defense lawyers will seize on the president’s call for an automatic dishonorable discharge, the most severe discharge available in a court-martial, arguing that his words will affect their cases.
“His remarks were more specific than I’ve ever heard a commander in chief get,” said Thomas J. Romig, a former judge advocate general of the Army and the dean of the Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kan.“When the commander in chief says they will be dishonorably discharged, that’s a pretty specific message. Every military defense counsel will make a motion about this.”
At Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina last month, a judge dismissed charges of sexual assault against an Army officer, noting the command influence issue. At Fort Bragg in North Carolina last month, lawyers cited the president’s words in a motion to dismiss the court-martial against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, who is accused of forcing a lower-ranking officer to perform oral sex on him, among other charges.
In Hawaii, a Navy judge ruled last month that two defendants in sexual assault cases, if found guilty, could not be punitively discharged because of Mr. Obama’s remarks. In Texas, a juror was dismissed from a military panel on a sexual assault case after admitting knowledge of the president’s words. In Alexandria, Va., Eric S. Montalvo, a former defense counsel in the Marine Corps who is now in private practice, has cited the president’s words in motions to dismiss two sexual assault cases, one against an Army sergeant and the other against a Navy seaman.
“Because the president is the commander in chief, it’s going to come up in basically every imaginable context in sexual assault cases,” said Eugene R. Fidell, who teaches military justice at Yale Law School.
Mr. Obama’s comments come at a time of intense scrutiny of sexual assault in the military. A recent Pentagon survey found that an estimated 26,000 men and women in the military were sexually assaulted last year, up from 19,000 in 2010. At the end of the last fiscal year, Sept. 30, there were roughly 1,600 sexual assault cases in the military either awaiting action from commanders or the completion of a criminal investigation.
This is military justice--this is crap social justice as in liberalism, entering the military. I am sure when one of these women are caught by a moslem they will be able to file a sexual harassment case, huh? What a bunch of whatevers. No longer the brave I guess.

NBC and DemoKrats Portraying Zimmerman as a 'Racist and Predatory Villain... George Zimmerman has Sued NBC for Portraying Him as a 'Racist and Predatory Villain'

WRONG.
Zimmerman stated he couldn't tell for certain, while on the phone with the POLICE.
See how WRONG! Wrong wrong wrong!!
Perhaps Neighborhood councils should now instill friendly question agendas...Identify yourself please, for the safety of ALL, not just some...as "do you have a problem" is NOT exactly respectful OR "fearful of" speak towards others either.
Personally, I wished the kid had called where he was staying. It would've made FAR, far more sense to.
Bullsh!t! He stalked a black child and when things turned bad he shot him.

I REALLY really hope if anything good can come out of all this--it will be maybe HOW neighborhood watch programs are handled...especially those plagued by crime.

Perhaps some Identify yourself PEACEFULLY and respectfully, or answer to the LAW. Initiate violence and threatening behavior towards others, then expect it in return.
COMMON SENSE and CIVILITY...NOT gangbanging and thuggery.

Funny how Democrat sheep worship government until six people (likely also Democrat), under the direction of government, contradict what the Democrat Machine has told them they "should believe".

Now they are up in arms, with at least one case of the Obama Zombie Crowd burning the American Flag.

What I fear is how the left wants to deny "all people" their rights, like the did with the IRS Scandal and this.

They want they system to work "more fairly" for what they and their "mob mentality" want.

So you agree Zimmerman when too far. He was the instigator to the entire event.

In 2000, Big Oil, including Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell, spent more money to get fellow oilmen Bush and Cheney into office than they had spent on any previous election. Just over a week into Bush's first term, their efforts paid off when the National Energy Policy Development Group, chaired by Cheney, was formed, bringing the administration and the oil companies together to plot our collective energy future. In March, the task force reviewed lists and maps outlining Iraq's entire oil productive capacity.
Planning for a military invasion was soon under way. Bush's first Treasury secretary, Paul O'Neill, said in 2004, "Already by February (2001), the talk was mostly about logistics. Not the why (to invade Iraq), but the how and how quickly."
In its final report in May 2001 (PDF), the task force argued that Middle Eastern countries should be urged "to open up areas of their energy sectors to foreign investment." This is precisely what has been achieved in Iraq.
http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/19/opinion/iraq-wa...
Before the invasion, there were just two things standing in the way of Western oil companies operating in Iraq: Saddam Hussein and the nation's legal system. The invasion dealt handily with Hussein.
CNN? It's easy to blame the oil companies and feel good about yourself. Blame the "Nazis" or the "Communists". Blame "al Qaeda" or "Hamas". Wake the fûçk up... You're safer watching "Fox News".

SPECULATION Homer...but as far as SPECULATION goes, if Zimmerman was out looking/watching for trouble, SADLY-he found some.

Trouble found trouble, and it made for double trouble.
