Data, anyone?

So it looks like Indiana will be amending its state Code of Military Justice so that National Guard and Air National Guard courts-martial can be convened by the adjutant general as well as the governor, and the state's military personnel will no longer be able to reject nonjudicial punishment. One problem this report suggests is that no one seems to have any data. The reader cannot tell how big an issue any of this is, either as to the apparently paltry number of cases in the Indiana military justice system over time, the frequency of Article 15 refusals, or, for that matter, how many crimes committed by Indiana's military personnel wind up in the state's civilian courts.
