Nope, you are not reading. I provided specific data regarding military vs civilian sexual assaults.

Extrapolating from Capt. Rodman's date (sic), there were 2,936 reported sexual assaults of women in the armed services in 2012 (including civilian victims), indicating a prevalence rate among the military's 146,000 women that may be twice as high as the civilian sector.
How Prevalent Is Sexual Assault in the Armed Forces?

This statement was made in refuting a report by Capt. Rodman entitled The Pentagon's Bad Math on Sexual Assault.

Further evidence of the "good old boy" network protecting men accused of sexual assault in the military is in today's news.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair — who struck a plea deal after being accused of sexually assaulting his former lover — was sentenced Thursday to pay $24,100 in fines and restitution, but not jailed or demoted.

The most serious charges against Sinclair, 51, were dropped as part of the deal he made midway through his high-profile court martial, but he still could have faced prison time.

Instead, a military judge gave him a reprimand, ordered him to pay $5,000 a month for four months, plus $4,100 for improper use of his official credit card, NBC affiliate WNCN reported from Fort Bragg, N.C.

His rank was not reduced, but if it's unclear of his pension will be intact.

Earlier this week, Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., who has spearheaded efforts to curb military sexual assault, predicted Sinclair would get a slap on the wrist.

It's easy for outsiders to predict what will most likely happen with military sexual assault cases that are brought before a military court.

So hike up those breeches a little bit more if you think it will help you ignore the evidence slapping you in the face.

There was a nude photo scandal of female marines on facebook. It was exposed earlier this year. One marine was booted out due to taking a female cpl nude pic without her consent (so she says).
