    Your diatribe throws me back to the bad old days when women who accused men of sexual assault were asked what they did to lead the man on.

    And one really important fact you completely failed to acknowledge is that this guy was not some "fly boy" misreading signals.  This was a man who was responsible for overseeing the sexual assault prevention unit.

      position misjudged his aptitudes.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

        The Air Force has some serious problems on this particular front and have had these problems a long time.  It would not be surprising to find out that he was picked because he tended to be sympathetic to accused attackers.

        26,000 assaults were anonymously reported in 2012.  Look at that number.  Now imagine how many people serving in the military would be expelled were each and every one of those reports of attacks found to be legitimate.

        There is a real problem here that needs to be addressed, but there are a lot of reasons why the commanders probably do not want to address the problem.
