ADFA cadet charged over shower video

By johnboy - 26 August 2011 111

A 21-year-old male cadet has been arrested following an incident at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) last night (Thursday, August 25).

Police will allege that a 21-year-old female cadet found a mobile phone hidden in a vent above a shower at her accommodation block at ADFA. The phone was recording video while the woman was showering.

ADFA staff located the owner of the phone and contacted ACT Policing.

Police attended ADFA around 11.50pm, and seized the mobile phone, laptop and a USB memory stick from the man’s room.

The man was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with an Act of Indecency without Consent.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning, where bail will be opposed.

“ADFA cadet in hot water”

It’s nice to see the defining characteristics of those entrusted with the defence of this nation proudly on display. Sexism, misogyny and stupidity. Doesn’t it just give a warm fuzzy feeling?

After all that has happened, how dumb must this bloke be?

It is an international cadet, apparently.

This can go with the 1000+ complaints they have recieved as part of the inquiry into standards at ADFA…..

Time for a full clean out I reckon.

It all started in the early 90’s with the ‘woofering’ incident and continued on from there.

A seminal moment…

Not really surprised when you get a thousand 18 year olds all together in one big venue. Primarily men, all sex deprived with hormones flowing. They’re not out drinking in first year (perhaps a good thing?) and have thought of other ways to entertain themselves. After the last event, i’m sure everyone is aware what they can’t do with women, perhaps there needs to be some serious examples made of these people, or events sorted out to fill in their time.

From what i’ve seen from college, you need to remove the “organisers” of the shenanigans, and anyone who encourages this behaviour. Particularly those in senior roles who don’t actively discourage these things.

I watched Revenge of the Nerds and I thought this kind of thing was good harmless fun that went on at all universities?

I doubt the woman thought it was ‘good harmless fun’.

Was it in Revenge of the Nerds? I was thinking Porky’s & Ms Ballbreaker……

How did this noob get past the officer testing board?

Lift your game ADFA.

ADFA is a bunch of losers, brought up on remote farms, prior to joining ADFA they only film their cousins’ having showers.

Is the blokes last name Carney??

And you know they’re going to absolutely crucify this dude. After all the sh1t that went down last time, they really are going to make an example of him.

Hot on the heels of the skype-sex malarkey. Suggests to me that this sort of behaviour is deeply ingrained at ADFA. Troubling. And yet, it’s probably always been this way at such institutions.
