APNEWSBREAK: MILITARY SEX ASSAULT CLAIMS UP 50 PCT [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

Overall, there were 5,061 reports of sexual abuse filed in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, compared with 3,374 in 2012, for a 50 percent gain. 

 

About 10 percent of the 2013 reports involved incidents that occurred before the victim got into the military, up from just 4 percent in 2012. 

 

 

“There is no indication that this increase in reporting constitutes an increase in crime,” said Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow, director of the Pentagon’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office.

In one lawsuit. . . 

 

In a second case. . . 

 

 

For a third woman, her return to the United States was intrusive and painful.  She was pulled from a line at an El Paso, Texas, border crossing, apparently on the suspicion that she was carrying drugs. 

 

She was handcuffed.  Over the next six hours, agents escorted her to a hospital, where they oversaw the probing of her anus and vagina, forced her to take a laxative and then watched as she moved her bowels. 

 

When no drugs were found, they ordered her to submit to an X-ray and a CT scan. 

 

When the ordeal was over, the officers asked her to sign a consent form before they allowed her to return to her home in New Mexico. 

 

When she refused, the hospital billed her thousands of dollars for the procedures.

 

 

 

 

 

US Economy Is A House Of Cards

Americans are an amazingly insouciant people.  By now any other people would have burnt Wall Street to the ground. 

 

 

Washington has unique subjects.  Americans will take endless abuse and blame some outside government for their predicament -–Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, China, Russia. 

 

 

Such an insouciant and passive people are ideal targets for looting, and their economy, hollowed-out by looting, is a house of cards.
