"I'm One of Those Statistics" - Sexual Assault in the Military by vocalo published on 2013-06-12T16:10:52Z "Even if you know what's about to happen is so so wrong, you don't want to be that guy, because tomorrow morning or next week when you're down range and you're on the line, that guy you complained about is the guy with the M16 standing next to you." -Mikki Kendall An amendment to the defense appropriations bill would have taken away the decision making process about whether to prosecute a sexual assault away from military commanders. But last minute, Sen. Carl Levin removed the amendment, meaning for now we must still rely on military authority to sort out the 26,000 sexual assaults a year in our armed services. Hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon talk to friends of the show Veronica Arreola and Mikki Kendall. Mikki's experience serving in the US Army adds some very personal insight to the conversation.
