Army sexual assault prevention officer accused of running prostitution ring

I’m not sure we need all that much more than that headline, do we?

FORT HOOD, Texas – Two soldiers said Tuesday that a noncommissioned sexual-assault prevention officer at Fort Hood recruited them and other cash-strapped female soldiers to join a prostitution ring.

Still, I guess we could look on the bright side. Consensual tarting isn’t sexual assault, is it? Might even be said to reduce it.

  1. Just remember the US military has extremely prudish rules regarding sex.

    Admittedly, they are broken pretty much all of the time, but on the odd occasions that a culprit stumbles in to the laps of the CoC (possibly, in this case, quite literally), the book they throw at them is larger and heavier than anything other than tax law or US Government Procurement Regulations.

    I remember being on the kidnap bus* on Basra and being accosted by a female US Army officer because a bunch of Toms (British Army meaning not US police) had left a copy of the Daily Sport on the back seat.

    * The long route – red? – that went all the way around the airport.

  2. Seems logical. Lots of punters have a thing about uniforms.
    Was it a non-commissioned officer, or an emissioned officer?
    How many dishonourable discharges will they emit?
    Will they rename Fort Hood Fort Dutch cap?
    Questions, questions…

    Well, a few pictures might be nice…

  4. Consentual tarting isn’t sexual assault, but sexual assault is.

    Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen is facing more than 21 criminal charges filed in March that include pandering, adultery and sexual assault.

    The US Army does not take complete illiterates like the British Army does. Well it tries not to. But it does take a large proportion of the under class and unlike the British Army, it can’t do much with them. Like teach them to read.

    So we have what looks like a member of the underclass pimping out other members of the underclass. Anyone want to make a guess about the races of the people involved?

  5. What a stupid and ignorant comment about the relative educational qualifications of us and UK serviceman. You are so completely and utterly wrong. There may be lads who join up who have little formal educational qualifications but to dismiss the whole of the UK or US Army as illiterates just says so much more about your ignorance than it does about the UK/US forces.

    Umm, Stu, I didn’t dismiss any part of the UK or US Army as illiterates. I said, correctly, that the UK Army does take illiterates. That is not dismissing them. It is also the world’s most successful Adult Education service. It teaches them and teaches them well. The US Army has much higher formal education requirements, at least in theory. But it is not so successful at teaching them.

    And of course, most importantly of all, I do not equate literacy with moral worth.
