We will take a a look at a few court cases tied to MILITARY and SEXUAL ASSAULT -----then looking at how military justice compares with CIVIL COURT justice.
First, let's remember to where CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA are taking the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-----sacking and looting, raping and pillaging-----bringing sovereign US to colonial status ruled by global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS.
Below we see terms used in this process of civil unrest civil war------this being old Chinese military terms which with coincidence look just like continuous wars these several decades by global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS KNIGHTS OF MALTA---TRIBE OF JUDAH.
What I hear constantly from NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG----is that I am HOG TIED-----BRIDLED AND HALTERED inside my living space---as well as in public space.
COPING WITH INVASIONS:
'bridle and halter'
This process of continuous wars overseas to build FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES now being brought to US to do the same------takes CIVIL UNREST CIVIL WAR-------global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS see all US citizens black, white, and brown citizens as BARBARIANS. The global 1% see all new immigrants to US as BARBARIANS. The only people getting a break---FOR NOW----are those 5% freemason/Greek players being used to create this sacking and looting process.
When we say the 5% freemason/Greek players are being paid to be FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT CIVIL UNREST CIVIL WAR PLAYERS------we are saying this small percentage of US citizens black, white, and brown are indeed being paid to bring their population group into this unrest/war stance. GET THEM ANGRY.
What do I hear in FEEDBACK all the time------GET HER ANGRY---MAKE HER MAD-----
What does having a BLACK NOSY NEIGHBOR illegally surveilling and making PORN of me ----following me around city using public surveillance to SHAME AND HUMILIATE ME look like to other people? GROUP SPEAK AND CHATTER are told to say-----THEY SEE ME-----they are told to say I LIKE HER-----and these people don't even know me. They are just repeating what FEEDBACK tells them.
To people nearby hearing this makes it seem lots of people are actually involved in ILLEGAL SURVEILLANCE OF ME-------when in fact very few actually even KNOW me.
At the same time there will be a WHITE NOSY NEIGHBOR illegally surveilling a BROWN immigrant/citizen doing the same to them that is done to me.
ALL OF THIS NOSY NEIGHBOR AND THE GANG as we say often have duel goals. It makes those 5% freemason/Greek players black, white, and brown feel EMPOWERED and a MEMBER OF A SECRET SOCIETY-----but, as well it is designed to ignite that CIVIL UNREST CIVIL WAR between all population groups.
GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS see what is happening to me in BALTIMORE as USING BARBARIANS TO ATTACK BARBARIANS.
Use barbarians to attack barbarians
What is this STANFORD TOTAL PRISON MODEL which is total surveillance in PUBLIC AND PERSONAL living space------we call it DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE---but, it is simple a goal to USE BARBARIANS TO CONTROL BARBARIANS. This is the PRISONER/GUARD structure of authoritarian, militaristic, takeover of sovereign civil societies----AS IS MOVING FORWARD IN US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES.
NOSY NEIGHBORS are barbarians----I am a barbarian-----and the goal of making population groups angry at one another------is creating the need for martial structures.
Use barbarians to control barbarians
I am being told here in Baltimore I have no rights-----I am not a citizen---------and I am made to feel I must GROUP SPEAK AND CHATTER----to be melded into what is ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE being built by OLD WORLD KINGS. Rather than being ALL-AMERICAN-----I am being forced to be ONE WORLD 3000 BC HINDI-BRAHMIN.
While US citizens are what we call the NATIVE AMERICANS from last colonial period of AMERICA-----so too are the 99% of new immigrants arriving to be that SLAVE LABOR colonies always have. The pathway to making immigrants into ONE WORLD teaches these immigrants how NOT TO BE ALL-AMERICAN.
Turn barbarians into CHINESE
What will happen if we keep allowing CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA to MOVE FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE will be a total erasure of AMERICAN HISTORY---we discuss REVISIONIST HISTORY being done today all the time. MARRIAGE ALLIANCE is not only about BARBARIAN population groups intermarrying to GET ALONG----it speaks to all these GLOBAL CORPORATE MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS------the alliances between GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS and those super-duper multi-national corporations----
RECONCILIATION AND INTIMACY---MARRIAGE ALLIANCE----
Today, after these few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA our national leaders working for OLD WORLD KINGS are closer to those ASIAN GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS----closer to those ARABIC GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS----then they are to 99% US WE THE PEOPLE-----black, white, and brown citizens.
All these global OLD WORLD KINGS think we are all BARBARIANS----especially those dastardly US 99% WE THE PEOPLE with all those BILL OF RIGHTS AND CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS.
free·men.a person who is free; a person who enjoys personal, civil, or political liberty. a person who enjoys or is entitled to citizenship, franchise, or other special privilege: a freeman of a city.
There are many voices on THE NETWORK describing who I AM-------I AM A US CITIZEN but in Maryland as these other PALATINATE US STATES------I am called a FREEMAN (WOMAN)-----I am called a FREEWILLER--------I am called a SLAVE all tied to this colonial structure and this is why I am being HIT------with no one on THE NETWORK stopping these illegal surveillance and PORN structures.
I AM A FREE WOMAN---I AM A CITIZEN IN MARYLAND ---AND MY FAMILY WAS ROYAL/LANDED IN COLONIAL MARYLAND.
According to PALATINATE laws----I am very much part of Baltimore ----having a VOICE-----having my FREEDOM ----and having a right to POLITICAL ACTIVISM.

Definition of a Palatinate:
ACCORDING to the Century Dictionary, a palatinate is the
dominion of a count palatine.
In England, an earl or count palatine had royal jurisdiction in his province;
all tenants-in-chief held of him; he had his own courts,
took proceeds of jurisdiction, and appointed his own
The bishop had admiralty rights in his province:
patrolling the coast was entrusted to him.
He also had the privilege of staying procedure, and could
suspend the execution of the law. The king checked
and limited the bishop's supremacy both in the regular
course of the law and in the exercise of the royal
The fact that the bishop's office was elective, and
therefore depended to a great extent on the king,
further limited his authority.
Palatinates were not, however, confined to the Old World:
In America, besides Maryland, there were Avalon,
Georgia, the Carolinas, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
People and Life of Colonial Maryland:
HE early settlers of Maryland were divided as follows:
the upper and middle classes,
composed of planters, farmers, and merchants,
the poor whites and freedmen, and the servile class.
PALATINATE governance is colonial and indeed some of our original 13 colonies were PALATINATE as MARYLAND. When one kills our US SOVEREIGNTY, STATE SOVEREIGNTY, LOCAL SOVEREIGNTY------one goes back to PALATINATE governance.
The difference MOVING FORWARD is that global banking 1% are KILLING THE MIDDLE-CLASS----leaving only an UPPER CLASS and that UPPER CLASS will be only the GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS.
What becomes confused when discussing terms like FREE WILLER--------the term politically means PERSON WHO IS CITIZEN. Looking at the term from a RELIGIOUS stance ---one is taken back to PROTESTANT REVOLUTION and creation of those religions separate from KINGS and POPES.
My family is tied to being ANGLICAN-----being METHODIST EPISCOPAL------and would be considered FREE WILLERS-----under these religious definitions.
QUAKERS, MENNONITES, CALVINISTS et al FELL INTO THESE CATEGORIES.
This drove the AMERICAN REVOLUTION being freed from a KING-----and MARYLAND and other PALATINATES fell under US FEDERAL SOVEREIGNTY having to shed that designation of PALATINATE.
As I look for what this term on THE NETWORK means-------SHE IS 'THEM' NOT 'US'-----this is to where I am looking next. So, I appear even under a colonial MARYLAND PALATINATE-----a CITIZEN-----a FREE-WOMAN-----and fall under ROYAL LANDOWNER.
NONE OF THESE WOULD HAVE ME BEING -----HIT-----ILLEGAL SURVEILLANCE AND VIDEO PORN BEING CALLED A SLAVE------BEING USED.
Free Will Baptist
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Benjamin Randall (1749–1808) was the founder of the Free Will Baptist movement in New England the late 18th Century.Free Will Baptist is a denomination and group of people that believe in free grace, free salvation and free will. The movement can be traced back to the 1600s with the development of General Baptism in England. Its formal establishment is widely linked to the English theologian, Thomas Helwys who led the Baptist movement to believe in general atonement. He was an advocate of religious liberty at a time when to hold to such views could be dangerous and punishable by death. He died in prison as a consequence of the religious persecution of Protestant dissenters under King James I.
In 1702 Paul Palmer would go on to establish the movement in North Carolina and in 1727 formed the Free Will Baptist Church of Chowan. Many Calvinists became Free Will Baptists in the 19th century. With the establishment of Free Will Baptists in the South, Benjamin Randall developed the movement in the Northeastern United States, specifically Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
One of the most defining characteristics of the movement is the notion of self-governance of local churches. The notion of free will was a systematic rejection of the Puritan movement, due to its overall religious beliefs and lack of social mobility.
Alternative Title: Rebaptizer
Anabaptist, (from Greek ana, “again”) member of a fringe, or radical, movement of the Protestant Reformation and spiritual ancestor of modern Baptists, Mennonites, and Quakers. The movement’s most distinctive tenet was adult baptism. In its first generation, converts submitted to a second baptism, which was a crime punishable by death under the legal codes of the time. Members rejected the label Anabaptist, or Rebaptizer, for they repudiated their own baptism as infants as a blasphemous formality. They considered the public confession of sin and faith, sealed by adult baptism, to be the only proper baptism. Following the Swiss Reformer Huldrych Zwingli, they held that infants are not punishable for sin until they become aware of good and evil and can exercise their own free will, repent, and accept baptism.
MARYLAND was founded by a CATHOLIC LORD CALVERT and Catholicism after the MEDIEVAL DARK AGES tended towards FREE WILL-------so, they would be categorized as FREE-WILLERS.
Below we see where Catholic discussions of FREE WILL extend from FREEMEN to FREEWOMEN.
So, in Maryland whether under US FEDERAL SOVEREIGNTY or whether one takes us back to COLONIAL MARYLAND-----I am a FREE WOMAN----I have FREE WILL----I am a CITIZEN.
WHO IS THIS 'US' AND 'THEM' WHEN THE NETWORK AND NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG SAY-----SHE IS NOT ONE OF US?
WHETHER RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL -----I AM PROTECTED FROM ACTIONS LIKE ILLEGAL SURVEILLANCE AND VIDEO PORN BY NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG.
I am dealing with an ILLEGAL BLACK MARKET CRIMINAL SEX TRADE PORN CARTEL-----and I seem not to be able to be protected and receive justice from those on THE NETWORK.
THE NETWORK is supposed to be HOMELAND SECURITY-------AKA---military and it is supposed to be local POLITICAL/INSTITUTIONAL LEADERS.

Free Will, Conscience and Moral Choice: What Catholics believe
By Archbishop George H. Niederauer *
In a recent interview with Eleanor Clift in Newsweek magazine (Dec. 21, 2009), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about her disagreements with the United States Catholic bishops concerning Church teaching. Speaker Pelosi replied, in part: “I practically mourn this difference of opinion because I feel what I was raised to believe is consistent with what I profess, and that we are all endowed with a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions. And that women should have the opportunity to exercise their free will.”
Embodied in that statement are some fundamental misconceptions about Catholic teaching on human freedom. These misconceptions are widespread both within the Catholic community and beyond. For this reason I believe it is important for me as Archbishop of San Francisco to make clear what the Catholic Church teaches about free will, conscience, and moral choice.
Catholic teaching on free will recognizes that God has given men and women the capacity to choose good or evil in their lives. The bishops at the Second Vatican Council declared that the human person, endowed with freedom, is “an outstanding manifestation of the divine image.” (Gaudium et Spes, No. 17) As the parable of the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky’s novel, The Brothers Karamazov, makes so beautifully clear, God did not want humanity to be mere automatons, but to have the dignity of freedom, even recognizing that with that freedom comes the cost of many evil choices.
However, human freedom does not legitimate bad moral choices, nor does it justify a stance that all moral choices are good if they are free: “The exercise of freedom does not imply a right to say or do everything.” (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1740) Christian belief in human freedom recognizes that we are called but not compelled by God to choose constantly the values of the Gospel—faith, hope, love, mercy, justice, forgiveness, integrity and compassion.
It is entirely incompatible with Catholic teaching to conclude that our freedom of will justifies choices that are radically contrary to the Gospel—racism, infidelity, abortion, theft. Freedom of will is the capacity to act with moral responsibility; it is not the ability to determine arbitrarily what constitutes moral right.
What, then, is to guide the children of God in the use of their freedom? Again, the bishops at the Council provide the answer—conscience: “Deep within his conscience man discovers a law which he has not laid upon himself but which he must obey. Its voice, ever calling him to love and to do what is good and to avoid evil, sounds in his heart at the right moment . . . . For man has in his heart a law inscribed by God . . . . His conscience is man’s most secret core and his sanctuary. There he is alone with God whose voice echoes in his depths.” (GS, No. 16) Conscience, then, is the judgment of reason whereby the human person, guided by God’s grace, recognizes the moral quality of a concrete act. In all we say and do, we are obliged to follow faithfully what we know to be just and right.
How do we form and guide our consciences? While the Church teaches that each of us is called to judge and direct his or her own actions, it also teaches that, like any good judge, each conscience masters the law and listens to expert testimony about the law. This process is called the education and formation of conscience.
Catholics believe that “the education of conscience is a lifelong task.” (CCC, No. 1784) Where do we go for this education of our consciences? Our living tradition teaches us that “In the formation of conscience the Word of God is the light for our path; we must assimilate it in faith and prayer and put it into practice. We must also examine our conscience before the Lord’s Cross. We are assisted by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, aided by the witness or advice of others and guided by the authoritative teaching of the Church.” (CCC, No. 1785)
Our Catholic beliefs about free will, conscience and moral choice are rooted in the Good News of Jesus Christ’s teaching and his redemptive life, death and resurrection: “For freedom Christ has set us free” (Gal. 5:1); “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2Cor. 3:17); we glory “in the liberty of the children of God.” (Rom. 8:17). Common caricatures of Christian morality portray believers as living in fear of punishment or concerned only with an eternal reward. Long ago, however, St. Basil the Great, a fourth-century bishop and theologian, taught that the Christian, in living a moral life according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, “does not stand before God as a slave in servile fear, nor a mercenary looking for wages, but obeys for the sake of the good itself and out of love for God as his child.” (CCC, No. 1828)
As participants in the life of the civil community, we Catholic citizens try to follow our consciences, guided, as described above, by reason and the grace of God. While we deeply respect the freedom of our fellow citizens, we nevertheless are profoundly convinced that free will cannot be cited as justification for society to allow moral choices that strike at the most fundamental rights of others. Such a choice is abortion, which constitutes the taking of innocent human life, and cannot be justified by any Catholic notion of freedom. Because of these convictions we commit ourselves to a continuing witness to, and dialogue about, the Gospel values that underlie our understanding of freedom, conscience, and moral choice.
Even in colonial PALATINATE MARYLAND the court system was built and recognized OLD WORLD COMMON LAW as its foundation. A citizen as FREE MAN and woman was entitled to access to justice.
'As the Maryland judicial structure evolved into separate courts, the jurisdiction of each became more defined. The county courts handled three types of cases—-criminal, civil, and equity.
proceedings involved actions committed or omitted in violation of the law. Civil actions dealt with the recovery of private rights or compensation for their infraction, such as nonpayment of debts or damages caused to persons or property. Equity cases involved matters requiring an equitable solution, such as estate settlements, title to land, and divorce'.
Now, I will bring this discussion back to US COURT public policy bringing in NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG running around town on public surveillance telling everyone I am a SLAVE----I have been seen naked by every man in the city and need to STAY INSIDE MY HOUSE. My case involves SEXUAL ASSAULT AND NON-CONTRACT RAPE by illegal surveillance and video PORN ------and yet, openly on THE NETWORK I am told anyone can HIT ME. I believe those on THE NETWORK saying this are members of THIS GANG----HOSTING SERVER NOSY NEIGHBORS et al.
NOT EVERYONE ON THE NETWORK LIKES WHAT THESE BLACK MARKET SEX TRADE VIDEO PORN NETWORKS ARE DOING.
We are looking at MILITARY COURTS and this trial below is an example of how a STATE OF MARYLAND thinks about SEXUAL ASSAULT inside a military setting.
'Around the same time a sex scandal at an Army training base in Aberdeen, Maryland, in which twelve officers were accused of assaulting female trainees, sparked public concern about assault in the military'.
There are tons of reasons that MARYLAND is primed for justice from SEXUAL ASSAULT. Whether religious---whether military code of HONOR AND ACCOUNTABILITY TO RULE OF LAW-----
20 Years Ago, an Army Veteran Reported a Sexual Assault.
She’s Still Waiting for Justice.
Congress continues to debate changes to the military justice system after decades of scandals, investigatory panels and trials have failed to stem the sexual assault epidemic.
By Zoë Carpenter
February 24, 2014
When Brenda Hoster publicly accused the sergeant major of the Army of sexually assaulting her, it nearly destroyed her life. She thought it would be worth it.
“I felt like what I did was the right thing, the ethical thing, not just for me but for all military men and women,” Hoster, a retired sergeant major and public affairs specialist, said in one of two phone conversations. Her complaints against the Army’s top enlisted soldier were part of a wave of sex scandals that rocked the military in the 1990s. Today, Congress is still debating how to best reform the military justice system.
“Nothing’s changed. Why is that?” asked Hoster. “I feel like my journey was for nothing.”
It’s been nearly two decades since Hoster spoke out against Sergeant Major Gene McKinney, who was her boss. She’d stayed quiet for months after the alleged assault, which she said occurred in a Honolulu hotel room in 1996. Hoster said her superiors at the Pentagon told her to resolve her issues with McKinney (who was later acquitted) on her own, and later refused her requests to transfer. Feeling powerless and alone, Hoster chose to end her twenty-two-year career. “There was very little confidence back then about being a whistleblower,” she said. “It was fight or flight, and I flew.”
Around the same time a sex scandal at an Army training base in Aberdeen, Maryland, in which twelve officers were accused of assaulting female trainees, sparked public concern about assault in the military.
Aberdeen came on the heels of the 1991 Navy Tailhook scandal, in which more than 100 officers were accused of assault or harassment. In response to the Aberdeen incident, the Army commissioned a panel to investigate its sexual harassment policies.
One of the appointees was McKinney. “I said, ‘Oh, hell no,’” remembered Hoster. In February of 1997 she decided to go public and filed a formal complaint with the Army. Five other women came forward to accuse McKinney for separate incidents. “It was about the ethics of it—nobody would do anything to help me, and now this guy was going to be on this panel investigating sexual harassment. To me, it was like nobody cared. I cared, and I spoke. And I paid dearly for it,” said Hoster.
After decades of scandals, investigatory panels and trials, the military still has not stemmed the sexual assault epidemic. Nor has it found a way to assure service members like Hoster that they will be heard and protected if they report crimes against them. Only two in ten service members who suffered “unwanted sexual contact” in 2012 reported the incidents. As the system is set up now they must do so through their commanding officer, who then decides whether the accusations warrant a trial by court martial.
“I think nothing’s changed because of the way that these things are brought to justice—or not to justice. I think a lot of it has to do with antiquated, non-functioning military justice system,” Hoster said.
Congress reached a similar conclusion last year after a series of hearings, and passed a number of reforms to the military justice system along with the annual defense spending bill. The new legislation bars commanders from overturning jury convictions, criminalizes retaliation against people who report sexual assault, mandates dishonorable discharge for anyone convicted of sex crimes, and removes the statute of limitations for such cases.
But Congress has not yet voted on the most significant and controversial reform proposed—Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Military Justice Improvement Act, which would put military lawyers, rather than commanding officers, in charge of sexual assault prosecutions. Victims’ advocates, veterans and some active duty officers argue that forcing victims to report to commanders exposes them to conflicts of interest and retaliation, and disadvantages accused and accuser alike by putting legal decisions in the hands of officers without legal training. Fifty-four senators—including nine Republicans—support Gillibrand’s bill, which the chamber will take up some time in March. The military’s top brass and two key Democrats on the Armed Services Committee, chairman Carl Levin and Claire McCaskill, oppose the measure, saying it would undermine commanders’ ability to enforce order and discipline in the ranks.
“From my experience, victims—and I hate that word, but can’t think of anything else—the victims don’t have someone they can trust to go to,” Hoster said. “How the hell would they have confidence in the chain of command right now? How could anyone have confidence, with all this stuff happening for years?”
In 1997, after what Hoster described as a “nasty” trial, McKinney was acquitted of all but one count of obstructing justice. Hoster struggled to keep her life together in El Paso, Texas, where she lived “like a recluse.” She had devoted her life to the Army: it gave her a ticket out of small-town Pennsylvania, and she loved the culture of discipline. Without it, she drifted. It took about ten years for the alienation and defensiveness to fade. Now she works for the Veterans Administration in San Antonio, which she considers an extension of her service in the Army. She describes her life largely in positive terms, but acknowledged that occasionally something rekindles her memory of the assault and its drawn-out aftermath.
‘I am a lot better after all these years, but when I start talking about it…” Hoster began to cry, softly. “It never goes away. You just need to learn how to deal with it better. It will always feel bad.”
What makes Hoster angry now is not what she says happened to her; it’s that speaking out didn’t make more of a difference for others in the military. In her work Hoster frequently encounters other veterans struggling with military sexual trauma. “It just disgusts me that it’s still happening,” Hoster said.
Gillibrand’s bill is likely to draw a filibuster, and both sides are contending for a handful of undecided votes. Opponents say the reforms that passed in December are sufficient correctives, and they should be given time to work before imposing deeper change.
Hoster is tired of the military asking for more time. “I fell on my sword for something back then,” she said when asked why the debate still mattered to her. “I’m not gonna turn my back on it.”
Below we see the same conditions as with MCKINNEY trial----and the result the same. The sexual predator was forced to retire but no court precedence tied to protecting victims of SEXUAL ASSAULT/RAPE.
Here in Baltimore the mindset with NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG is this: this illegal surveillance and video PORN structure is considered part of SACKING AND LOOTING----RAPING AND PILLAGING which is seen in continuous wars overseas. The mindset is tied to WAR AND PILLAGING from PRE-CHRISTIAN NERO/CATO/SENECA times.
'Jobo was forced to retire and demoted one rank, to lieutenant colonel. Because the military keeps most disciplinary actions secret, the case was hidden from public view.
There would be no trial, no publicity and no public record — the same for thousands of other sexual assault investigations each year in the armed forces'.
This is why our US MILITARY will not take a court stance on these SEXUAL CRIMES cases.
How does that play out when MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD is installing a global private military corporation structure with the intent of US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES being COLONIAL AND DARK AGES?
NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG feel they can SEXUALLY ASSAULT AND NON-CONTACT RAPE continuously because of this military mentality in Baltimore. This is why we have SATURATED NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG with huge PORN NETWORKS in each community.
How the military handles sexual assault cases behind closed doors
By Craig Whitlock
September 30, 2017
As part of a sexual harassment and assault case, Air Force investigators recovered hundreds of text messages that Col. Ronald S. Jobo, left, sent to a female subordinate in 2015. (Photo by Mickey Welsh /The Advertiser; texts obtained by The Washington Post)
For the U.S. Air Force, the case of alleged sexual harassment and assault by a senior officer was exactly the type of misconduct Pentagon leaders had promised Congress and the public they would no longer tolerate.
The victim at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base in Alabama reported in September 2015 that her married boss, a colonel, had repeatedly said he wanted to have sex with her, tracked her movements and sent her recordings of him masturbating in the shower, documents show. She said that she told him to back off but that he would not stop: Twice, she alleges, he trapped her in the office, grabbed her arms and forcibly tried to kiss her.
Air Force investigators quickly confirmed much of her account, aided by hundreds of messages that the officer had texted the woman and by his admission that he had sent the masturbation recordings, the documents show.
In their report, the investigators compiled extensive evidence that the colonel, Ronald S. Jobo, had committed abusive sexual contact against the woman, a civilian in her 30s. Under military law, the charge would have automatically resulted in a court-martial, a proceeding open to the public. The crime carried a sentence of up to seven years in prison and a requirement to register as a sex offender.
The decision on what to do next rested with a three-star general 600 miles away at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. In the military-justice system, commanders — not uniformed prosecutors — have the power to dictate how and whether criminal cases should be pursued.
In March 2016, Lt. Gen. John F. Thompson, the senior officer in Jobo’s chain of command, decided against charging Jobo with abusive sexual contact, or any crime at all. Instead, Thompson imposed what the military calls nonjudicial punishment, or discipline for minor offenses.
Lt. Gen. John F. Thompson, the senior officer in Jobo’s chain of command, decided against charging the colonel with abusive sexual contact, or any crime at all. (U.S. Air Force)Jobo was forced to retire and demoted one rank, to lieutenant colonel. Because the military keeps most disciplinary actions secret, the case was hidden from public view.
There would be no trial, no publicity and no public record — the same for thousands of other sexual assault investigations each year in the armed forces.
MCKINNEY was not an exception-----but, he went into this trial to face very serious and numerous accusations of SEXUAL ASSAULTS AND RAPE assured he would not be held accountable---and he was. This article doesn't say---but, MCKINNEY was demoted but did end up leaving the military no doubt from pressures. His case ended with a CONVICTION on one account----of course that was not the SEXUAL crime. The importance in any LAWSUIT tied to SEXUAL CRIMES is to create a BROAD SET OF CHARGES---do not focus only on being a victim of SEX TRADE PORN MULES.
ABU GHRAIB brought the convictions it did because of global SENSATIONALISM. MCKINNEY was a US public military member---ABU GHRAIB staff private global security corporation.
BALTIMORE is steeped in global military corporations-----before we even started with DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE ----we have to take a LAWSUIT against this black market criminal sex trade cartel to a COURT not so heavily tied to a militaristic state.
I tie religious public policy with this military-style criminal activity because THE NETWORK is filled with people tied to both.
When I think WHO IS 'US' AND WHO IS 'THEM' ------is this a military fraternity/sorority -----Hmmmmm, I don't think this SODOM AND GOMORRAH was happening in CALVERT'S COLONIAL GOVERNMENT.
Here is where my being called a SLAVE is very important------our colonial slaves of course where not PROTECTED ---and indeed faced grave crimes against humanity.
In Maryland today I can be called a SLAVE-----I can be USED with no access to justice---------BECAUSE...............I am still thinking about it.
Top Army Sergeant Was Secretly Taped In Sex Investigation
By Elaine Sciolino
- June 28, 1997

Machine—view over 150 years of New York Times journalism, as it originally appeared.

The Army secretly recorded its top enlisted soldier while investigating him for sexual misconduct, and at a hearing today played a tape of a telephone conversation in which he tried to tell one of his four female accusers what she should say to investigators.
In the conversation, Sgt. Maj. Gene C. McKinney, the Sergeant Major of the Army, told the 26-year-old staff sergeant to describe their relationship as strictly professional and their conversations as advice about her career development.
In a later telephone conversation, the woman testified today, the sergeant major instructed her to tell people that Army investigators had forced her to say things against her will. She said that at other times he intimated he could hurt her career if she told anyone that he had sexually harassed her.
What Sergeant Major McKinney did not know was that the woman was already cooperating with investigators, who had installed a recording device on her telephone shortly after another woman, his one-time aide, accused him of sexually mistreating her last February and the Army began investigating.
Testifying under oath today, the female sergeant, whose identity is being withheld at the request of the Army, portrayed Sergeant Major McKinney as someone who intimidated her by repeatedly reminding her of his lofty rank and pressuring her to have sex -- from their first meeting during a convention at the Washington Sheraton Hotel in October 1994 to an encounter on a bicycle path along the Potomac River in August 1996.
The woman said she had been terrorized with threatening calls and actions since she came forward to accuse the sergeant major. She has been placed in the Army's witness protection program.
Army lawyers played the tape of the phone call, which Sergeant Major McKinney had initiated, in an austere makeshift hearing room here on the military base at Fort McNair as part of a hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to try him by court-martial. The witness today is the second of the sergeant major's accusers to testify.
''I'm just all confused,'' she said in the tape of the phone call he made to her apartment last February.
''All you have to do is tell them we talked a lot,'' the sergeant major replied. ''You called the office and we talked about career development stuff. That's all they need to know.''
''Well, O.K.,'' the woman said.
''That's it. Period. We just talked about career development.''
At another point in the conversation, he said that she should tell investigators that there had been ''no inappropriateness at all, just that we talked.'' He also told her to say that the only time they had ever seen each other was one day when she unexpectedly encountered him raking leaves in his yard on Fort Myer, Va., where they both lived, and that he had introduced her to his wife.
And he branded Brenda L. Hoster, the retired sergeant major who had once been his personal aide and had publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her, as someone ''who outright hates my guts'' and who ''couldn't live up to the standards'' of the Army. The conversation did not include any sexual overtone.
It is not unusual for the military to monitor and record telephone conversations of people it is investigating when there is a possiblity that a crime may be committed through telephone conversations.
There are 10 preliminary charges against the sergeant major involving the sergeant who testified today: maltreatment of a subordinate, solicitation to commit adultery, making threats, indecent assault and obstruction of justice -- each on two occasions.
He has denied her charges as well as those of his other three accusers.
In recent months, the female sergeant said today, she had received threatening phone calls telling her to keep quiet and not to trust Army investigators, she said.
She testified that ''someone carved, 'Bitch, die,''' on her apartment door. She said that her apartment was broken into, her papers relating to the case were stolen from her kitchen table and the head of one of her stuffed animals was ripped off.
A six-and-a-half year Army veteran, she has since been detached from the Old Guard, a prestigious ceremonial infantry unit at Fort Myer.
She also testified that the sergeant major had urged her to lie about the way Army investigators treated her.
''He said anything I said, I could say the CID was making me say it, that they forced me to say things,'' she said of the Army's investigative command. ''I said I couldn't do it.''
Sergeant Major McKinney appeared relaxed throughout the hearing today, leaning back in his chair, joking with his defense team, munching on cookies and drinking a ginger ale. He never looked at his wife, Wilhemina, who stared vacantly at her husband's accuser, and frowned from time to time.
The sergeant, who testified for more than two hours despite suffering from laryngitis, said that the sergeant major had asked her for sex on their first meeting at an Army convention when he made an obsence remark, told her she had a ''nice little body'' and invited her repeatedly to his hotel room.
''I'm a man, you're what I need,'' she quoted him as saying. ''Men, women, we have needs. We can take care of them.''
She said that he offered her a job helping with his travel arrangements, the same type of job he is said to have offered the 26-year-old sergeant who testified against him earlier this week. The sergeant said she did not want to upset him because ''he said he made things happen, good and bad,'' and ''I didn't want anything bad to happen to me.''
After that, she said, he called her repeatedly, often asking her to meet him. She added that she had repeatedly refused. If she was not home, he said that ''Jeff'' or ''Mr. Smith'' had called and asked her to call him back, she testified. She added that the only times she ever called him were to return his calls.
On one occasion, she said, she accompanied him to his office at the Pentagon, where he hugged her ''real tight,'' telling her that she had aroused him sexually and that she would ''have to fix the problem.''
''You know I can have you if I really want you,'' she quoted him as saying.
''I wasn't interested in having sex with him and he couldn't understand why,'' she said today. ''He said I was abnormal.''
He became more needy, she said, after his 18-year-old son, Zuberi, was killed in an automobile accident, at one point last July demanding that she meet him near the Lincoln Memorial, where she said he grabbed her and kissed her.
The last incident occurred on a Saturday morning in August, she said, when she went on a regular bicycle ride along the Potomac River and he appeared and rode alongside her. After urging her to give him the chance to satisfy her sexually, she testified, he began talking about his son again and started to cry.
He ''asked if I was going to comfort him in his time of need,'' she said. ''I said 'No.' ''
