Seargent major is a good man that made a mistake. I know this becuz he's my jrotc instructor. Well, WAS. He's a great guy. Now does that mean he should e let off the hok? No. He was wrong and justice has to be served. But, he does not deserve the ''bad man'' or ''horrible influence'' title.

If he was a retired SGM then he is a disgrace to the uniform he wore. He had students and he took advantage of that situation. Maybe the female was enjoying the relationship but he is the adult. He should of been usin the head between his shoulders instead of the one between his legs.

I know the girl and its very sad... He prayed on a girl who had a crazy home life. Her mom and aunt are trashy and ignored her most if the time to prowl for older rich men... Not great role models.

If he is such a great guy then why didn't he think with the head between his shoulders and not the one in between his legs? How is he being a good influence by sleeping with students? That does not sound like a good influence to me. His job was to teach the students how to be good leaders. Sleeping with a student is NOT effective leadership.

In my opinion he was a terrible man he was my ROTC instructor as well. He was a very unorganized and disgusting man. He used to check out the female students, curse us out, and all he taught us was to be disrespectful.
I remember and this is no joke, one of my fellow students joking called him a pediphile and he said and I quote "Yup, I f**** kids all day" at the time we all thought it was a disgusting joke, but as it turn out it was not.

In her first story she the 'vitcim' said it was consensual and we pursued each other' meaning she wanted him too. Especially since the relationship lasted three years. Excuse me that makes her well over 18. So before you go talking shit please know your story. Yes Kirby was wrong and he has already got his sentence and he and the 'vitcim' are moving forward with their lives. And trust me she is doing very well for herself and she doesn't have and damage done. She's happy with her life. So back off their shit!
you're sick

In the fall of 2010 she was a 17 year old little high school girl. He was a 42 year old PERVERT old enough to be her father! Disgusting!

Once again you didn't see her first story. I'm not excusing the actions of this man. But you were 17 once. You are well enough educated on sex and feelings at that time. She technically was 3 months away from being 18. She stated several times that she wanted the relationship with this man and she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. She and he both took this action upon themselves. You see it all the time you could be 18 and sleep with a 17 or 16 year old and once the relationship ended they tell and boom you're arrested and in jail for a relationship. IF he was really a pervert he would have raped her not had a consensual relationship with her for two years! She even said 'we pursued each other' IF she really wanted justice she would have told when it first happened! Not when they BOTH agreed to end the relationship years later! I'm not excusing this mans actions he should have known better!
