The Air Force now publishes sexual assault convictions online. Anyone can go to this website and review more than 100 sexual assault convictions from across the Air Force, to include viewing them by base.
After a few minutes of reviewing the facts of these cases, you will soon see many cases are very similar – they involve: 1) the use of alcohol 2) the absence of personal respect for the victim 3) the absence of the victims’ consent. A number of these cases involve Airmen assaulting fellow Airmen. Many times these victims were coworkers and former friends – people who trusted their assailant.
All Airmen should visit the below website and review the facts of the cases, which resulted in these Airmen being convicted of sexual offenses. Then educate and warn fellow Airmen about the consequences of committing these crimes. When you see a situation that isn’t right, be a good wingman, intervene, and insist your fellow Airman treat others with respect. You will regret being a passive bystander when a few words of intervention can forever positively change the lives of Airmen around you.
