GREAT INJUSTICE - WEST POINT CADET GETS
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
West Point cadets may find themselves in more danger from female classmates than ISIS and the Taliban when they go to war after graduating from the U.S. Army Military Academy.
A good example is former Cadet Jacob Whisenhunt (Class of 2019), who was recently court-martialed on "sex assault" and "rape" charges after a female cadet complained the Maxwell, Nebraska native attacked her in her tent during a field training exercise in 2016.
The 20 year-old male cadet contended the sex - which took place in the "victim's" tent at Camp Buckner - was "consensual." The six-member court-martial panel (made up of West Point faculty and staff, who knew what was expected of them) disagreed and slammed Whisenhunt with a behind-bars sentence more severe than some convicted murderers get in the civilian world.
A "RUSH TO JUDGMENT"
Apparently, the then-cadet's fate was sealed as soon as he was accused. It's an unwritten rule these days, that males charged with crimes in the military like rape and assault, are always "guilty." Ask yourself, dear reader, when was the last time you heard of such a person being found "innocent" and acquitted? Even if the fact was, they were indeed innocent. People like Sen. Gillibrand (D-New York) can raise plenty of hell with the Pentagon if displeased.
MilitaryCorruption.com investigators suspect a "rush to judgment" with Whisenhunt sacrificed on the bloody altar of "political correctness." We wonder why - if the "victim" was "violently raped" in her tent - none of the many other cadets in that field with tents very close by - didn't hear any cries for help? If the female had been assaulted, as she said, she certainly could have summoned assistance in the matter of a moment?. If the sex was indeed consensual, however, that would explain the low level of noise.
Is it possible that the accuser knew she might short-circuit her West Point standing by breaking the rules, engaging in intimate relations with a classmate? Things have changed so much lately in the U.S. military, that perhaps same-sex relations would have been excused with a wink and a nod. It might be better, in her estimation, to yell "rape" and be certain that none of the fallout from the violation of rules would touch her.
AN ACCUSATION IS AS GOOD
"This case is just another example of the 'guilty until proven innocent' culture which now exists in our armed forces," said Kit Martin, a member of the board of directors at SAVE OUR HEROES PROJECT.ORG.
"Any male accused of sexual assault in the military is finished the moment the charge is made. If he's lucky, only his career is destroyed, but more than likely, he's going to prison for a very long time, and if he gets out, he'll be a felon and registered sex offender for life.
"There's a huge benefits package for 'victims,' essentially financial incentive to make false accusations," Martin told an MCC reporter. "This is often instigated by the JAG and investigative units like CID, OSI and NCIS."
