The saga with Lt Col Jeffrey Krusinski is finally over. How? That’s a fair question. However, let me quote, for the third time, a statement by Ms. Petula Dvorak. She made it when the allegations against Krusinski surfaced and civilian authorities retained jurisdiction.
Hey, Pentagon commanders: Look beyond that 395 freeway on-ramp, just past the McDonald’s and Macy’s, and see how allegations of sexual assault ought to be dealt with. Like a potential crime.
After the initial charges, things changed further. We talked about it here.
That brings us to yesterday. Via the Washington Post:
An Air Force colonel accused of assaulting a young woman outside a Crystal City bar this past spring has been acquitted by an Arlington jury.
Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, 42, was head of the Air Force’s sexual assault prevention branch when he was arrested after the May encounter outside a Crystal City bar. The incident was swept up in an ongoing debate over whether the military is equipped to handle sexual assaults among its ranks.
Well, there you go. Done and done.
Hey, Ms. Dvorak: Look beyond that 395 freeway on-ramp, just past the McDonald’s and Macy’s, and see how allegations of sexual assault ought to be death with. With calm heads and respect for the rule of law, regardless of how loudly you bloviate.
