Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen: The Sexual Assault Prevention Officer ‘Who Was A Pimp’
THIS looks like a nice little piece of multi-tasking. There was a non-commissioned officer in the US Army who was tasked with making sure that the number of sexual assaults was kept to the minimum possible (obviously, preferably none). And he decided to do this by asking some of the more hard up female soldiers whether they’d like to do a bit of escort work, a bit of prostitution, on the side.
Well done that man:
Testimony was to resume at the military court hearing of a Fort Hood sergeant accused of setting up a prostitution ring with cash-strapped female soldiers.
Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen is facing more than 21 criminal charges filed in March that include pandering, adultery and sexual assault.
Military prosecutors were scheduled Wednesday to resume presenting witnesses at McQueen’s Article 32 hearing, which in the military system is similar to a grand jury proceeding.
The hearing will determine if McQueen, who was a noncommissioned sexual-assault prevention officer, will face a military court-martial.
During the hearing’s first day on Tuesday, two soldiers testified that McQueen recruited them and others to join the prostitution ring.
One female private testified McQueen arranged for her to have sex with a male soldier for $100.
You might think it odd that I say well done. But if a soldier is going to get decently and voluntarily laid for the bargain price of $100 then there’s going to be at least one person around less likely to go around on a rampage of violence in order to get a jump, isn’t there?
Sadly it’s unlikely that the US military justice system is going to see it that way but perhaps they should. For he really did reduce the amount of potential sexual violence out there.
