The staff sergeant contended the sex play was "consensual," but a military judge thought otherwise. As a result, a Beale AFB (Calif.) non-com will be going to prison for the next three years.
Staff Sgt. Tom Barlow got the book thrown at him by Lt. Col. Jeffrey Ferguson.
The 29 year-old sergeant was accused of "forcing" unwanted sexual moves on several lower-ranking enlisted women. The charges were that in August 2010, Barlow invited one of his "victims" to have lunch off-base in Linda, Calif. Investigators said the NCO drove to a nearly deserted parking lot instead, and proceeded to "touch" the woman's "breasts and genitalia."
Another female Air Force enlisted member said Barlow "came on to her" while stationed overseas when he allegedly asked the young airman to perform a sexual act best known to Monica Lewinsky.
RANK DETERMINES TYPE OF PUNISHMENT IN AIR FORCE
Tom Fiscus must be laughing out loud at his good fortune.
He is the former top legal officer for the Air Force and two-star general who eventually admitted having sex with some two dozen female officers and enlisted members.
Since the Air Force leadership has been corrupt and hypocritical for years - current leader and chief-of-staff, Gen. Norton Schwartz, is widely known as a puppet of bully-boy, four-star Gen. Gary (Jill Metzger protector) North - it's no surprise that a low-ranking NCO gets three years in prison for unwanted touching of a female, while a general - who actually had SEX with women under his command - receives a "slap-on-the-wrist" reduction in his already obscenely fat retirement pension and NO jail time, NO court martial, not even an Article 32 preliminary hearing.
Once again the extreme injustice and hypocrisy of today's Air Force is there for all to see. Does anyone care? Apparently Secretary of Defense Robert Gates doesn't. He's too busy sucking up to his boss in the White House. He also donned knee pads for George Bush.
We've said it before and we'll say it again. DIFFERENT SPANKS FOR DIFFERENT RANKS poisons morale and destroys any "respect" by the rank-in-file for so-called "leaders" who enjoy a double-standard of justice.
