Same old story with a sadistic twist.

Woman goes to party. Drinks and passes out, gets raped. Finds out about the rape on social media and attempts to report it. She is punished for drinking.

“It’s like, to the academy, it never happened, and it was all brushed away,” the mother said in an interview.
Except the part where her daughter was punished for admitting she was drinking when she reported she was raped.
No charges have been filed in the case, but the Naval Criminal Investigative Service acknowledged Friday that it is looking into the incident. Academy spokesman John Schofield said the superintendent is waiting for a final report from the NCIS before deciding how to handle the case.

“We are completely and utterly committed to a full and fair investigative process,” Schofield said.

If that were the case Schofield why was the middy punished after reporting a CRIME? Why is NCIS finally being called in ages after the fact?

Not only is this cadet psychologically damaged by the academy's response to her being attacked. The academy has declared open rape season on any cadet that may stray slightly in any way.

Why is it crime victims endure so much punishment? Why do we assume someone is lying when they report rapes?

Who benefits when crime victims are punished for reporting crime?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
