We were hoping we wouldn't have to write about another scandal at ethics-challenged Carlisle Barracks for a while, but the latest incident to rock the once-respected Army installation is a real doozy.
The director of the DA Support Branch at the Center for Strategic Leadership has been arrested on child porn charges.
Investigators discovered over 10,000 kiddies sex images on COL Robert J. Rice's laptop computer.
Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com it was the colonel's wife who turned him in.
DIDN'T MAKE BAIL
Rice, 55, who lived off post, is being held in the Cumberland County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail
The chubby colonel (weight standards don't always apply to the inner circle) is facing 120 counts of possessing child pornography.
A preliminary hearing has been set for Tuesday, April 9 before District Court Judge Paula P, Correal.
Carlisle Barracks Commandant, GEN Tony Cucolo issued a statement in which he said; "The allegations, if true, are very serious . . . (Rice) is innocent until proven guilty. He and his family will receive appropriate support."
That's very nice, even charitable.
But would the general have said the same thing if the person arrested had been a staff sergeant or junior officer? We wonder.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: We've been online since 2000 and get up to six million hits a month - a real nightmare for the cover-up artists and brass hats in the Pentagon.
Read about Carlisle Barracks over the years in our popular series CARLISLE BARRACKS CAPERS. Get to know past characters there, like now-retired COL Mike (NO COMBAT) Colpo, the "chairBORNE" Ranger and West Point grad (Class of 1978) who, despite his Infantry branch insignia, managed to avoid combat or even overseas duty for 30 straight years.
Or how about GEN. David "Hapless" Huntoon, soon to be exposed on MCC regarding an IG investigation on him at West Point. The widow of Gen. Omar Bradley's aide, Charles Honeycutt, doesn't exactly have fond memories of when Huntoon ran Carlisle Barracks.
