    how you are going to have separate justice systems for "sex crimes" and all other.  DETAIL.

    I have read MANY diaries about this topic and yet NOT ONCE has anyone explained how removing commanders from the process will make them care about sexual assaults MORE.

    Please give me ONE example anywhere in life where making someone not responsible for something has made them take more responsibility for it.  Just one.  

    Please tell me how we can get rid of commanders who dont take sexual assault seriously by telling them it is no longer their responsibility.  How can we hold them accountable when your proposal will make them not accountable?

    Please tell me how we get more command emphasis for something by removing commanders from the process?

    Do you have any idea how command works?  Dont you know that if you take something away from a commander it doesnt become the lowest priority, it disappears completely.  In fact any commander who was doing and activity that was not part of his command should be relieved on the spot.  If its not his job he better not be doing it.

    Finally, please tell me how many other areas are too hard for commanders to deal with?  Do we have Rape courts and all others?  Or do we have Rape courts, racial discrimination courts, sexual discrimination courts, etc, etc, etc?

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
