Quote of the day

"I am deeply worried by today’s data showing no increase in the prosecution and conviction rates compared to overall reporting. More reporting is not the end game. Justice and removing recidivist predators from the military so they can not commit more crimes to arrest the problem is the end game. More people coming forward and not receiving justice only further erodes trust in the system. These shocking numbers should spur Congress to act and finally put these cases in the hands of trained legal professionals to fix a system that is failing our brave men and women in uniform."
The foregoing quote is from the May 1, 2014 statement of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-NY), Chair of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel, on the Department of Defense's Fiscal Year 2013 Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military.
