US Navy sexual assault reports rise 50%
BBC ^ | September 11, 2013

Posted on 09/12/2013 3:50:52 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The number of sexual assaults reported to the US Navy rose dramatically over the last year, officials have said.

The Navy puts the rise down to sailors' growing comfort reporting incidents of sexual assault and to their belief that authorities will take action.

The Navy says about 1,100 assaults were reported in the year ending this month, an increase of 50% from 726 last year.

And this is a surprise why?

When you unleash the hounds of sexual deviancy, this will be the result, and no amount of threatened legal action against the guilty parties will deter them.

Homosexuality is a sin is a sin is a sin, and when the floodgates to sexual sin are opened, it's most likely impossible to stop outside of the power of atonement through the Blood of Christ.

The Navy, and indeed all of the armed forces, have dug themselves into a hole they may not be able to dig themselves out of.

The commies threatened to AND DID destroy the morality of our people..
We are marching toward Gomorrah in a forced march..
Forced by the penetration of our school system by the commies(progressives)..

A multi-decade on “the parents” morality has produced several generations of ragamuffins.
Slowly by degrees simple honest ethics have leaked out..

Progressive teachers have STOPPED teaching civics and american history..
With obvious mandatory results.. not with all BUT with MOST..
It’s totally NOT ABOUT RELIGION..

Back in the 90s I was in charge of parts for my division. I would have to go to the submarine tender once a week or so. You took your career in your hands every time you set foot on a ship full of women. Don't smile at anything, put on a blank face, and don't say anything that wasn't straight out of the regulations.

I can't imagine what it is like know.

I'd love for the Navy to publish the stats on how many women successfully complete their first enlistment.

So many senior officers both retired and active foresaw this happening that it is almost criminal that “leadership” allowed women in the armed services. Add the homosexuals to the mix and we now find male assaults. I love it when liberal democrats get it turned around into their a*s over idiotic ‘visions’ such as these.

I'm going to ask a silly question:

If someone files a sexual assault claim do they then receive monetary compensation from the service?

If so, how much, and/or for how long?

You don’t have to be a Senior Officer to know that when you put men and women together , or men and faggots together there is going to be sex, invitations to have sex, and sexual innuendo’s, and unhappy campers when offers are made or turned down.

It’s called Nature.

I disagree; sailors aren't more comfortable with reporting incidents, the military is lacking leadership at the higher levels, and it is now manifesting itself at lower levels in the form of bad conduct Also, the moral standards that used to be upheld by society in general, and the in the military in particular (in the form of recruiting standards and UCMJ rules) have been so eroded in recent years that there is a larger amount of bad apples than in the past.

Assault is not a sexual relationship.

This is terrible! We need to fix this!

Let’s try this, it should work, let’s put people who are sexually attracted to each other in confined spaces for long periods of time and......errrr...wait...nevermind.

Let the Gays and the women and the trannies have the entire military.

What clear headed straight guy would want to be part of that mess, go out and risk life and limb and sanity in hopeless, distant wars (and training exercises against their own countrymen), with only the return to broken marriages, unemployment, and the insult of the VA system to look forward to?

Of course, but it is the senior officers who say Yes or No to the CIC, They had no backbone and/or retired because of it and so we see the situation we have that even a blind man could have foreseen.

reported by the Brits.

Reported by the BBC, which was apparently staffed exclusively by sexual deviants and perverts ( paid by the British taxpayers) in the last half of the 20th century. ( See Jimmy Saville etc etc)

While I agree that this sort of information should be reported in the US press there may be an element of "pointing the finger elsewhere" to this report.

One idiot said that this a good thing because allowing gays to be open is means more people fee free to report sexual assaults.

I bring up your point to the sexual assault officials every chance I get. They claim the assaults were the same as before. Based on their reasoning every single women in the military was sexually assaulted and most didn’t bother reporting it.

I call BS because in my experience some women will file a complaint against you for stupid stuff so I can’t see them just ignoring an assault.
