12:46 am
times. a lot of. times. that there was. my dad my brother prior nabi in the army national guard and. when the family
12:47 am
in the foot was excited and completely just hyped up about going and all my family was proud of me. as my biggest hero. told us of your own being taken care of and i guess that's one of the hard things that i have to accept because i told her that she would be. who's in february we got a call. once who is dying and he. rubbed his hand all over my entire body and. he said our own all of this. and i was absolutely scared didn't know what to do my dad. when the 1st thing she said.
12:48 am

12:49 am
a sexual assault is fully investigated in the united states navy they didn't take care of it for a year and a half they were tracking down witnesses they had all these students that are. and they can walk them down and say hey you're only hold talking to statement and i didn't and i went through 3 investigators it was like ok i'm giving this case that's what it's sort of feel like i'm giving this case i'm going to take care of it oh well this is really want to really want to deal with it females would come up to their commanders or their and ceo's and say that they were either sexually assaulted or abused and i don't think it was taken seriously i think a lot of times a cursory investigation was done and they were basically told to just suck it up a member bring in a young service member been brutally raped and bring him to see or command and try to make sure that this girl was taken care of properly and this idiot. city in order to stop crime of course built milk on a time the credibility of the witness was called into account had the potential
12:50 am
victim had she made claims like this in the past there was a lot of witch hunting going on i was ordered to advise a victim of her rights for false statement when i knew that she wasn't lying i was asked to bring her in advise her of her rights like a criminal and interrogate her for false statement until i got the truth out of her . what we hear again and again from soldiers who have been raped is that as bad as it was being raped what was as bad if not worse was to receive professional fratelli ation in their chosen career merely because they were raped when you report something. you better be prepared for the repercussions if a man gets accused of rape it's a setup the woman's life i could choose to report it but if i wasn't if you know if
12:51 am
they found that what i was saying wasn't to be truthful than that i would be reduced in rank you could lose your rate you could lose rank you could lose your school if you file a false report 'd so. do you want to file a report. with. everything in the 1st my friend ed to make me they sound believe me i reported it to different times to my squad leader and he told me that there is nothing he can do about it doesn't have any proof they actually did charge me with adultery. i wasn't married he was they took me before make my hand the tank commander and he says you think this is funny and i said what do you mean his like a solid job like what do you mean they go see the 3rd girl report rape this week even as they all in cahoots you think is a game. ok

12:53 am
and this goes everywhere with me. you always have protection with jesus but sometimes you need just a little bit more. time to go. it was they c of course they. they ordered they ordered a back x. ray instead of that but here's the make up. we should have they should know you should know what's wrong with me like read my stuff and you'll see that's my face it's not my back it's not my legs my arms it's my may need to prove i don't even know what your case is even i don't even know why waste that the gas money the trip anything it was completely a waste of time what a good veteran's day right. it's a perfect way to spend. it. because
12:54 am
it was an isolated duty station they were in charge and we were just like cattle. it was the 1st time i was drugged and raped i was this room where some of my friends and family had like one or 2 drinks and when laying down it was like instantly i was not feeling well and came to having a pillow over my head in my friend. raping me. that went on repeatedly. most sex offenders are hunters just like any hunter they study their prey they study their movements we study the behaviors they study the environment. you have rapists that prey on other human beings they they stock them they they wait until the victim is
12:55 am
that the most vulnerable point in time to perpetrate their crimes a lot of times a victim as somebody that the suspect is very familiar with and they're very aware of what's going on most sex offenders have this hidden persona that nobody ever sees except for the victim therefore when they're caught or if somebody reports people don't tend to believe that because they don't see the typical sex offender if it's an officer it's an officer that has had a bit chilly in the past preyed on and enlisted they would do it once they get away with it and then they think wow this was pretty easy i'm going to try to get and particularly for a savvy perpetrator to work within a relatively closed system like the military it becomes a prime. a target rich environment for a predator. what
