Air Force's sex-abuse prevention honcho charged with sexual battery

Mug shot of Air Force Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski, who headed the service's sexual-abuse prevention office until he was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in Virginia over the weekend.

NBC News reported--The Air Force official in charge of its sexual-assault prevention program was arrested for groping, authorities said Monday. Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski, 41, was removed from his position as head of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office pending an investigation, the Air Force said. 
The incident happened just after midnight Sunday when a drunken Krusinski allegedly approached the woman in a parking lot in Arlington, Va., and grabbed her breasts and buttocks, according to a police report. Police said the woman fought off her assailant and scratches can be seen on Krusinski’s face in his mug shot. He was charged with sexual battery.  
The charges are "deeply troubling," Air Force Chief of Staff General Mark Welsh said Tuesday. The Air Force has requested jurisdiction in the case, which is standard practice.
Food for thought:   And you wonder why the rape and sexually assault victim's complaints are never taken seriously!  This is just another piss poor example of how the military "fixes" its problems!

Syneeda, in a recent posting on your site someone mentioned that we haven’t heard much from Jill Loftus lately, possibly because she’s trying to remain hidden after her failure and contribution to the rising sexual assaults, at least in the Navy.
Well, Jill is back. She’s no longer trying to say that the numbers haven’t actually increased, but she’s still singing the same tune about what SHE believes, still trying to down-play her failure as Deputy Naval Inspector General where she aided in cover-ups of sexual assaults, and her current failure to actually do anything about sexual assaults and rape. She’s still done nothing to take action against the predators, as a recent article in the U-T San Diego spells out: Navy sex assault reports up 32%.
The article states “Jill Loftus, director of the Navy Department’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, said she believes the higher number of official reports may be due in part to victims feeling more comfortable coming forward. The Pentagon has taken steps in recent years, such as hiring more victim advocates and making it easier to transfer out of a unit.” That’s the same old story from Jill. She still doesn’t get the point that you actually have to take action against the perps (perpetrators) and pervs (perverts). How does hiring more advocates prevent the crime? How does transferring a person out of a unit prevent the perv from doing it to the next person?
“The fact that incidents are up and reports are up doesn’t sound like good news.” Really, Jill, it doesn’t sound like good news? Where have you been? You’re the head of the office responsible for preventing sexual assaults and all you have to say is that it doesn’t sound like good news? When are you actually going to do something but talk and spend more money conducting training that hasn’t worked because the perps and pervs know that you won’t act! It’s actually interesting that this story was in the U-T San Diego because there has been a lot of talk about San Diego. There has been some discussion on this site about a predator at a command in San Diego. If I recall, the postings were about a civilian at a Navy activity, the Navsup Fleet Logistics Center. The command paid lots of money to cover up for William H. Weinfurtner and Jill was the Deputy Naval Inspector General at the time that the tax payers were being taken for a ride to cover for the perps and pervs so they can continue. It might have even been around the same time that Jill was the Deputy Naval IG and did nothing when Syneeda was blowing the whistle on corruption and Jill did nothing.
“The Navy has tried innovative tactics. At the Navy training center in Great Lakes, Ill., it restricted free time, alcohol use, told sailors they had an obligation to intervene when witnessing bad situations and asked local merchants to keep an eye out for trouble when sailors were outside the gates. It even hired young actors to perform skits about assault prevention…” But, Jill, you haven’t said what you are going to do with the perps and pervs? Are you going to cover up like you did for slick Willy William H. Weinfurtner while he trolled for sex at the Fleet Logistics Center?
Jill, take a hint from the Commander-in-Chief’s comments after your Air Force counterpart, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, was arrested for sexual battery.
The Commander-in-Chief said “If we find out somebody’s engaging in this stuff, they’ve got to be held accountable, prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period.” Instead, in your tenure, Jill, you’ve covered up as the Deputy Naval IG, and you haven’t said a word about what you’ll do with the perps and pervs in your current position…except put on more skits, blame the victims, and express your discouragement.
