Failure of the System

I think, and I am know there are many others out there, that there is a severe lack of punishment for sexual offenders. After following this story about on Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, it is quite disheartening to see that he is not getting jail time.  It just seems like another story of a person in power taking advantage of those subordinate to him. Assaulting anyone is terrible, and assaulting those that you have power over makes you even more terrible.  

The fact that he was given a deal and in that deal his assaults were labeled “adultery” is reprehensible.  It undermines what happened to those women, and that harm and pain he caused them. It is also insulting to his own family. 

His camp claims that the “system” worked in this case, but I see a seriously flawed system that keep failing the survivors of these attacks.
