|Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinsk, looking pretty damn rapey in my opinion.|
The Air Force, which has been rocked by a sexual abuse scandal at its major training base, suffered another embarrassment Monday with the revelation that its chief sexual assault prevention officer was arrested over the weekend for allegedly groping a woman.
Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, 41, was arrested and charged with sexual battery Sunday after he allegedly grabbed the woman's breasts and buttocks. When he attempted to grope her again, she fought him off and called police, according to the police report. The victim did not know Krusinski, said Dustin Sternbeck, an Arlington County Police spokesman.
Krusinski is the chief of the Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response branch at the Pentagon.
Krusinski has been removed from his job while his case is being investigated, said Lt. Col. John Dorrian, an Air Force spokesman. He took the post in February.
Damn! I can only imagine how this guy treated the responsibilities of his job, if he had so little respect for women that he felt it was okay to put his hands on one that clearly was not welcoming that kind of attention.
It makes me wonder just how many legitimate complaints were passed over due to this man's lack of empathy and understanding.
And don't be fooled into thinking this is not a systemic problem, even the brochure on preventing sexual assault in the Air Force places the sole reswponbility on the victim:
An Air Force brochure on sexual assault advises potential victims not to fight off their attackers.
“It may be advisable to submit [rather] than resist,” reads the brochure (.pdf), issued to airmen at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, where nearly 10,000 military and civilian personnel are assigned. “You have to make this decision based on circumstances. Be especially careful if the attacker has a weapon.”
The brochure, acquired by Danger Room, issues a series of guidances on “risk reduction” for sexual assault. Among others, it advises people under sexual attack in parking lots to “consider rolling underneath a nearby auto and scream loud. It is difficult to force anyone out from under a car.” A public affairs officer at Shaw, Sgt. Alexandria Mosness, says she believes the brochure is current.
While the brochure also explains that sexual assault is not always committed by people who “don’t look like a rapist” — attackers “tend to have hyper-masculine attitudes,” it advises — it does not offer instruction to servicemembers on not committing sexual assault. Prevention is treated as the responsibility of potential victims.
Yeah ladies, if you cannot get away, or are in fear of injury, better just lie back and enjoy the assault.
You know that is EXACTLY the kind of advice that rapists really want their victims to receive.
Just makes their job of raping you that much easier.
Jesus, I swear some of these organizations seem to be run by knuckle dragging Neanderthals who still think of women as toys or possessions and simply have little, if any, respect for them as human beings.
