WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN PROVOST MARSHAL
CORRUPT? - ANSWER: NEXT TO NOTHING - AS
LONG AS "SHERIFF" DOES GENERAL'S BIDDING
PROTECTS CRONIES AND TARGETS OFFICERS
"OUT-OF-FAVOR" WITH HARASSMENT - LETS
GENERAL'S DRUNKEN WIFE GET AWAY WITH
DUI - HE IS "BULLET PROOF" - SECOND MOST
POWERFUL MAN ON POST - ONLY WHEN PMO
LIKE FORT DRUM'S CAUGHT WITH CHILD PORN
DOES TOP COP LOSE ABILITY TO TERRORIZE
FORMER LTC CHRIS BUTLER NOW DOING SIX
YEARS IN SLAMMER - "FAST-TRACKER" FINISHED

LTC Chris Butler seemed to have the world by the tail. The "fast-track" light colonel was a multi-tour combat veteran of the 10th Mountain Division and provost marshal at Fort Drum, N.Y. Could promotion to full colonel be far down the road?
But like so many perverts who fly just beneath the radar, Butler got caught not only looking at child porn, but distributing it to fellow degenerates. Obviously he thought being "top cop" at the sprawling Army post entitled him to break the law with no fear of punishment.
Butler will have a while to think about his mistakes and lost pension. He's serving six years in the slammer. That is, if he survives his incarceration. Even the most-hardened criminals are daddies and love their children. They don't look kindly on former military police who get their kicks from child pornography.
This 44 year-old former PMO is an exception to the rule, however.
SOME PMO'S OPERATE LIKE A MAFIA ENFORCER
While Butler was nabbed and is doing hard time, many other corrupt provost marshals here and overseas still get away with crimes that mock the concept of justice and equality under the law.
We recall a particular PMO at Carlisle Barracks, way back when, who fit the category of a "sheriff" clearly out-of-control.
This punk liked to drink at the O-Club, where he made passes at the waitress and hinted broadly that his teen-age son needed a summer job - and it would be a "good idea" if he got one.
The arrogant military cop" was more than happy to protect the general's cronies, let the CG's drunken wife get away with DUI on post, and harass and torment any target of the Command's ire. It was almost as good as being a Mafia enforcer.
However, the light colonel's personality was so obnoxious, even fellow dirt bags disdained him.
Finally, after promotion to colonel and a transfer away from Carlisle Barracks, the "bully boy" tripped up at the same time MilitaryCorruption.com dropped a dime on his head. Frightened he might face court martial, the MP officer put in his retirement papers and went out an 0-5, he was in such a hurry to become a civilian again.
That's one story that happens to have a happy ending. Most do not.
A LAW UNTO THEMSELVES
PMO's are about as impervious to oversight as one can be. They serve at the pleasure of the commanding general and do back-flips to keep their boss happy.
The best way to derail one of them is to gather evidence he (or she) is a pervert. Homosexuality doesn't work anymore as a certain career killer, not since Obama (can you spell man servant Reggie L-O-V-E?) finally came through for one of his most well-heeled constituencies with the end of DADT ("Don't ask - Don't tell") in the armed forces.
Child porn will always be a strict "no-no," along with religious and ethnic bigotry, in today's Army.
If you have a bad PMO, keep close tabs on him ( or her) and if there's anything you can hang on them in the way of child pornography or molesting kids. THAT is the unforgivable sin. Get proof of that on a hated provost marshal, and you'll have the hammer that brings them down.
