Sexual encounter chat room why interracial dating is bad
Speedy, who was the first person Reyes told about the incident and who advised her to report it at the time, said the investigators' conclusion "shows exactly how a sexual assault is dismissed in the military" -- particularly cases involving decorated soldiers.
"Based on the bruising around Sarah's throat and the fact that she was sobbing, fearful of all touch and was found on the floor in the fetal position, rocking back and forth in a dark exam room, coupled with her statements about what happened, I can say with a 99% certainty that a sexual assault occurred," she told CNN."People who engage in consensual sex do not present with those symptoms.
Facts are misrepresented by investigators and attorneys," Speedy added.""The truth is that the scourge of sexual assault in the military remains status quo," Sen.Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, said about the 2017 Pentagon report."(It) disappointingly shows a flat overall reporting rate and a retaliation rate against survivors that remains at an unacceptable 6 out of 10 for a third year in a row."Reyes is one of several former and current service members who told CNN that the military failed to properly address their reports of sexual assault, despite implementing programs like SHARP, or Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention.CNN talked to five women who said they were assaulted while serving in the military, and data says 1 in 4 women are assaulted by someone in their chain of command -- numbers that have led the Pentagon to target what it calls a pervasive issue of sexual assault within its ranks.
