Male Sergeants sexually abusing subordinates get punished?

For those saying the punishment doesn't fit the crime:
Fraternization is a VERY serious offense in the military. The element of possible intimidation or sexual harassment is a factor, but a lesser concern than perceived favoritism. The higher you get up the chain of command, the more serious it becomes.
Really she got off easy. They kick people out for this.

An E-5 with four rows of ribbons. Go Air Force.


Hey, it's possible if you can be in the right places at the right times and impress the right people. I was an Army E-5 with four rows. It would have been five if I'd actually bothered to add the medals from Desert Storm.

But anyway...That female MTI knew the rules, and didn't bother to follow them ala "don't fool around with the trainees." Plus, if Air Force post-boot camp school is anything like Army, it's an environment of  teens and young 20 somethings who've finally gotten permission to socialize with each other after 8 or more weeks of "no nookie for anybody" in basic training. We used to call those romances "AIT Love."

When will women realize the over-plucked-pencil-thin-drawn-on eyebrows (or "Sharpies") look stupid and extremely lower-class.  Like insanely lower-class and ignorant of what actual style is all about.

That goes for Kelly Ripa, too.  Imagine how beautiful she would be with normal brows.

Hoblit: Two consenting adults and only one gets jail time.


It's only against the rules for one.


Like a high school teacher banging an 18 year old senior.

According to the article,

Allen was the 19th MTI to be court-martialed and the only woman implicated in a scandal that has ensnared at least 32 former trainees in less than two years. All but one of the trials has ended in a conviction. Six of the former MTIs were sentenced to bad-conduct or dishonorable discharges.

I think we need a sample size of more than one to determine whether gender-based discrimination occurred here, subby.

Just saying....hard to see from that photo
From bottom right to top left, in order of precedence:
Basic Training Ribbon
NCO PME School ribbon
AF Longevity Service (4 years service)
Long Tour Overseas
Short Tour Overseas
Something I can't tell but maybe Basic Training Insturctor
National Defense Service
Can't quite tell AF Recognition Ribbon
AF Outstanding Unit Award
Joint Service Maybe
AF Commendation Medal.


Totally reasonable if she was High Speed enough to be a training instructor

Yeah, maybe...and you know, women can't consent when it's the male in charge, that's rape every time.

All snarkiness aside, this is a stupid rule and I don't understand why there would be 'time' in a sentencing of this nature. (Unless of course it was actually rape.)

I understand why there is a rule, I just think the punishment isn't appropriate for the 'crime'. Two consenting adults and only one gets jail time.

Dumb.
