Because he is a Brigadier General?

This is a sad day for the military

They can’t even be counted on to curb rampant sexual harassment in the military!

The recent trial and sentencing of Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair is a kick in the teeth to all efforts of the military to curb harassment in the military. This isn’t any ordinary soldier. This is a Brigadier General! Not some ordinary soldier.

The charges you ask?

 Sinclair, 51, pleaded guilty to having “maltreated” his mistress, disobeying orders not to contact her and misusing his government credit card. The Army agreed to drop charges that he forced her to perform oral sex and threatened to kill her and her family. He had previously pleaded guilty to committing adultery (a crime in the military), possessing pornography on his computer (a violation of orders in socially conservative Afghanistan), pressuring other female officers to send him nude pictures and impeding the investigation by deleting some explicit photographs from his computer.

And what did he get?

No jail time and was reprimanded and fined a total of $20,000 for “inappropriate” relationships with three subordinates. This predator got out of being required to register as a sex offender by pleading out some charges. Why? Could it be the military justice system gave him preferential treatment? I think so.

And his response?

“The system worked. I’ve always been proud of my Army,” Sinclair told reporters after the sentence was imposed. “All I want to do now is go north and hug my kids and my wife.” Read MORE

This, coming from a guy who just got a sweet deal from the military justice system. Arrogant asshat!

And at a time that the military machine is under duress for the ever increasing problem of harassment in the military. To cheese weinie out of giving him what I believe he truly deserves. But he instead got a “Get Out of Jail Free” card because of his rank. In my opinion.

And even an attempt by Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, to alter the rules of military justice in order to keep this kind of prejudice out of the military system was defeated. So life goes on as usual in the military justice system.

Until they , the military, get a grip on this problem of sexual harassment it ain’t gonna get no better!

Just one mans opinion. What do you say?

  1. If you’ve been reading as of late,even Chief Petty Officiers get JAIL-TIME, Booted Out with a Less than HONORABLE discharge, FINED and DEMOTED. Your ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, this guy got off “scott free”. What’s wrong with the system is: It’s good for some but not for others. Hasn’t changed much from your Navy days has it? There will be alot of angry people about this case,maybe it will help change, what once was a great system,back to that. PM

    1. You would think that the pressure that the US military complex is under would want to clean up it’s act. I hope that they do some time soon. I can only hope BzeroB
