I think this is a sad situation because this man did fight for our freedom, however it does not give him the right to violate the rights of any one else. The soldier is held to a high caliber especially him having so much rank and years in service, more is expected of him. In the army everything is moral standards, and being a role model for subordinates beneath you and this type of behavior is not setting the proper example for the soldiers he lead. He should receive a punishment that fits his criminal behavior.

Unfortunately, it's a common failing in people. If he said what he's accused of saying, it's still so true that the gods hate "hubris"....

Morgan Molosso's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:30 PM

The reason I picked this article is because it talks about the people that cause the gender inequality.  These offenders say why they believe they can get away with the unreasonable social problem.  This relates to half the skys because the men are getting to treat women badly and the police just act like it's not going on.  The police are turning their back on gender inequality which is making it worse in countries like Egypt.

Peace Officer Vs. Police Officer | Casida 2012

Peace Officer Vs. Police Officer | Casida 2012 | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
Here's an interesting perspective that we don't see much in Alaska, but is common in the Western States of the Lower 48. Is this a potential solution to racial profiling? The Wren case essentially allows pre-text stops for minor violations even though the officer may subjectively really intend to use the stop to uncover another crime (e.g. drugs, weapons, etc.), thus officers use minor traffic violations to stop people who "look" like criminals. By shifting minor offences to a traffic force, would we eliminate the actual or threat of racial profiling?
