Marines United

Prof. Rachel VanLandingham
Global Military Justice Reform contributor Prof. (and retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel) Rachel VanLandingham has written a strong op-ed about the unfolding "Marines United" social media scandal. Her lede:
U.S. Marine Corps Commandant General Robert Neller should be immediately relieved of his command. As the senior leader of the Marine Corps, he is ultimately responsible for the good order and discipline of the Corps, and his willful ignorance of his Marines’ escalating abuse of female Marines on social media has allowed both to seriously degrade. 
Not only does Neller’s dereliction of duty warrant his firing, subordinate Marine Corps leaders need such an unequivocal signal that failure to exercise their command to safeguard their female members will not be tolerated.
