Color me dumb. I just realized the infamous SEAL trial that just wrapped up is what he was talking about. I didn't put two and two together; I was thinking Ghallager was some other inside the Pentagon story of things gone awry.There is (in and outside of the teams) a strong divide on what people believe happened . . . despite the verdict.
Really? So you think anything in the ucmj should be able to be done at NJP?Youve got a record of saying stupid things but this definitely has set the bar on that.
This is categorically untrue. Each and every sexual assault case is reviewed by NCIS and JAG as well as elevated to the O-6 SCMCA level for initial disposition. That O-6 SCMCA will receive a copy of the NCIS report and Prosecutorial Merit Review before making a decision whether to refer charges for Court Martial via Article 32 hearing, maintain disposition at their level, or drop it down to the originating Commanding Officer for their disposition.NJP for a “sexual assault” would only be done in the case that they don’t have enough evidence to convict at a courts martial.
One can reasonably assume at that point that there is a high chance that the “assault” didn’t happen.
Ergo, any NJP for a sexual assault is likely a commander covering their ass and not being accused later of neglecting an accusation.
Faith restored . . . .Comparing Gallagher to Moran is foolish. The better question is why is Moran now the one being sacrificed at the alter instead of his boss...
