Sexual assault survivors criticize military culture, justice system

There are 5 comments on the Mar 14, 2013, www.stripes.com story titled Sexual assault survivors criticize military culture, justice system. In it, www.stripes.com reports that:

Rebekah Havrilla, a former Army sergeant and explosive ordnance disposal technician, told the Senate Armed Services Committee's Subcommittee on Personnel that when she sought counseling from an Army chaplain after being attacked, she was told that her rape was "God's will."

Later, after a friend found photos of Havrilla that the alleged rapist had taken during the attack and posted on the Internet, Havrilla went to Army investigators. The interview with the Criminal Investigation Command “was the most humiliating thing I’ve ever experienced.”

So, rapes happen because people are too sensative?
And our military is filled with weak pathetic kids?
Go flush your scummy head in the toilet, you America hater. Then leave; go to Switzerland, or Tanzania, or somplace far away.
That is NOT what I said. Dont twist my words to suit your agenda. Please, try to follow along... Commanders dont have the power to put Soldiers into prison.. we can only do "paper" punishment. Do some research on the UCMJ. If Commanders can lock up Soldiers and assign them hard labor, it would sent a message to the other rejects.

And asshole, Im not an America hater. If you said that to me in person, I would have slapped the shit out of you. You fake ass punk.

why can other people live an work with women without raping them?
and yes, the military certainly could "smash" offenders. they don't even bring them to trial. they have been trying to hush up this whole problem.
your world view has very little to do with reality...
WHy are the percentages higher, because the Military has a lower population than the Country you idiot..

Are you in the military? Are you speaking from first hand knowledge? NO.. I know that based off the retarded comments you just made. Guess what.. I am in the military..
