Skip to comments.House Republican moves to protect rape whistleblowers in military
Posted on 03/02/2016 11:52:01 AM PST by jazusamo
In a response to the case of a Green Beret whom the Army wants to boot for confronting an accused child abuser in Afghanistan, a House war veteran lawmaker is introducing a bill that would make such rape illegal on a military base.
The move by Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, comes as the Army put off a final decision on the career of Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland.
Now a hero to pro-defense and social conservatives, Sgt. Martland and his supervising officer roughed up an Afghan police officer immediately after they learned he was accused of raping a boy.
Somehow the Department of defense doesnt have a policy that forbids pedophilia and child rape on U.S. installations, said Mr. Hunter, explaining why his bill is needed. They refuse to do the right thing in this case.
My bill makes it illegal to have child rape on a military base, said Mr. Hunter, a former Marine Corps officer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Youre not allowed to rape children on U.S. installations. Its that simple.

Maybe they can protect rape-whistle blowers at the same time ;)
AFIK, rape has always been illegal on military bases.
Is there a separate set of rules for gay rape now that Obama has worked his magic on the military?
Are you familiar with SFC Martland’s case?
Our military higher ups seem to look the other way on our military bases in Muslim countries.
>>> Are you familiar with SFC Martlands case? <<<
Yes, but is that a special unique case or is it throughout the entire US military?
There was a report within the last year that gay rape was becoming common in the military.
This bill by Duncan Hunter is in response specifically to child rape on our bases in foreign countries where it’s accepted by those animals.
I’d bet the farm if any US military member was caught raping a child or another US military member they’d be court-martialed and be in Leavenworth for a long time and if a whistle blower was involved he’d be fully protected.
You’re right, I’ve read that gay rape has increased in the military since the turkey in the WH forced the acceptance of openly gay people in the ranks and they should be busted hard. The social experiments will not work, in my view.
What does everyone think about a Trump/Hunter ticket? I saw him on Fox this morning (or early afternoon) and I was impressed by him.
I like Duncan Hunter and like his Dad as well, both good people.
Haven’t heard anything about him as far as a possible VP pick.
That is not a special unique case.
Just a case in the public eye.
It’s a very sick world when we are even discussing a Marine having his life ruined for reporting a child rape.
Again. If Trump and Cruz weren’t winning the primaries, this would just quietly go away because it really ruffles the feathers of the elites who like that Middle East money and are so willing to look the other way regarding their ‘culture’.
