Another in a series of people using the internet to victimize underage children to satisfy their sick desires. As a parent, this is a flashing neon sign screaming to be heard about monitoring your kids' use of the internet.

I found it particularly scorn-worthy that he contacted the Chinese offering military secrets in exchange for a jailbreak. THAT little item ought to be of interest for a second trial under UCMJ, considering the article only indicates conviction on the sexual counts.
He isn't getting out of jail, ever.

Isn't getting out of jail ever because I hope he gets "accidentally" mixed in general population, gets raped, and dies of internal bleeding of the ass.

Obviously a disconnect somewhere in his brain. But it does not mitigate what he did.

I think this article is extremely important because it points out that a servicemember can be perceived as exceptional by their command, but lead a completely different life. If more leaders were open to that fact that these types of people exist we may be able to identify them sooner and prevent this type of behavior from escalating.

I completely agree with you. There are signs... If it's too good to be true, it probably is..

You are so right. I faced similar admiration from my ex-husband ' s CoC when we were divorcing due to him domestically abusing me. They just couldn't see him in that light. He wore 2 masks. One for work and one for home.

ENS Jeremy Medlen It's not about casting doubt on their work performance. In the Army, part of our NCO creed is "I will know my soldiers and always place their needs above my own." If a soldier was doing this type of stuff in his off-duty time, his first-line leader should be paying attention to know something isn't right. I said the same thing to one of my AF Officer friends this past weekend when he was called in to deal with a suicide. If we extend the effort to know those under our command, we can see and recognize the signs. It's not about doubting their performance at work, but being open-minded to the idea that they might not be so perfect as we would like to think.

His own wife was unaware. His closest family members were unaware. I don't see how members of his CoC would be reasonably expected to know that he had this type of issue, when his most intimate circle did not. I have never reached a level with any of my junior soldiers where I know more about their personal lives than their own spouse. I consider myself a caring and involved leader, but this is not something that could have been discovered unless I were accessing his personal home computer.

Sorry I'm kind of picky about quotes and credit due. Though I have no doubt Andy Griffith did say this at some point.

CPL Brendan Hayes beat me to it. This is from Canto VI, 17 of "Marmion" by Walter Scott.
One of my favorite periods of literature, that particular line is quoted frequently enough that it is attributed to many famous people, but Scott penned it in 1808.
