Army Specialist Kamisha Block died last summer in what the Army officially characterized as a non-combat incident and told her family was a case of "friendly fire." Well, if by "friendly" they meant "deliberately killed by a fellow soldier that had been abusing her without punishment to date" and by "fire" they meant "shot her five times and then killed himself," then it was an honest assessment of the situation. Otherwise, they just straight out lied to cover up the fact that the Army failed to protect one of its soldiers from domestic abuse and then lied to cover up the end result of their not-benign neglect.

@lolacat(ΩΜ): Yup. And that's not even bringing up the multiple cases of women dying from dehydration because they were too afraid of being sexually assaulted to go outside alone at night, even for water. If the military wants to instill order anywhere, they need to look closer to home first.
