How bad is the epidemic of sexual assault in the military? This bad: Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Krusinskil , 41, was arrested Sunday and charged with sexual battery after drunkenly accosting a woman in a suburban Arlington parking lot. Until that happened, Krusinski was chief of the Air Force’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program, which “reinforces the Air Force’s commitment to eliminate incidents of sexual assault.” His arrest comes about a week after a report that the military has been handing out breath mints, lip balm and other freebies in hopes they would promote good behavior among the military’s evidently many sexual predators and “spread the message of respect” to their victims. It also comes a day before the Pentagon releases its  annual report on the epidemic of sexual assault in the military that Krusinski was supposed to be combatting, but, it seems, wasn’t.

“How many more reasons do we need to take cases of rape and sexual assault out of the chain of command?” – Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.)
