Senior leaders in the Corps vowed to punish those involved and to root out a culture of misogyny revealed by the scandal. William Brangham reports on what’s happened since then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAiNUdeYLsg Marines - Sexual Harassment in the Marines and Hazing Tailhook Convention 1991 Air Force Times 2019/03/24    Why McSally is right and wrong about military sexual assaults.  By Paula Coughlin https //www airforcetimes com/opinion/commentary/2019/03/24/why-mcsally-is-right-and-wrong-about- military-sexual-assaults/ Excerpt:  Rape in the armed forces has been in the limelight before, dating back to my own public complaint of sexual assault at the infamous 1991 Tailhook Convention, which painfully ended my naval career. In the Pentagon’s most recent annual report, nearly 15,000 service members report having been sexually assaulted. Horrifically, most victims were assaulted more than once, bringing total assaults to over 41,000 per year, or 112 per day. Put into perspective, we are losing a battalion a week to this crisis. These statistics sabotage enlistment and re-enlistment of qualified members. Mission-ready manpower is diminished when the threat of assault in the military is far greater than the civilian world, with little or no recourse. You can’t sue your commanding officer for rape. In fact, you might be tried for adultery. Vox 2017/07/12   I was a Marine.

The friend also informed detectives that Pierce-Morris had been trying to avoid Rather and had recently began dating another man. The friend and Pierce-Morris’ mother had become concerned that Rather was “obsessed with Jasmine,” the charging documents read.  The friend, who lives several states away, was distraught when she learned of Pierce-Morris’ death and told investigators that Pierce-Morris had stopped sharing her location data with the friend at roughly 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The friend informed police that the young man “Chris,” with whom Pierce-Morris was supposed to have met prior to her death, lived on E.
