Air Force's Sex Assault Prevention Chief Charged With Sex Assault

In "Isn't It Ironic" news of the day, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, the head of the Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response unit, was charged with groping a woman in a parking lot early Sunday morning. It's like rain on your wedding day. (If said rain also molested you.)

The police report states that Krusinski grabbed the woman's breast and buttocks at a bar in Arlington, VA. Thankfully, the woman was able to fight him off (see above mug shot) and call the cops. Krusinski — which I keep wanting to type as "Krustyinski" — didn't know the woman; she just had the lousy luck of being in the same bar at the same time.

Considering the Air Force has a cozy relationship with sex abuse scandals — and an awkward time actually confronting sexual assault — this is far from surprising. Still, wouldn't it be an amazing opportunity for the United States Armed Forces to open up their fucking eyes and actually deal with the issue? There's no shortage of people who are asking them to do and be better — maybe this will serve as a desperately belated wake-up call?

Kursinski was released later on Sunday on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond. An arraignment is scheduled for Thursday.
