More trouble at ADFA

By johnboy 21 June 2013 23

The ABC has a story on mass suspensions at ADFA over an unspecified “off-campus incident”:

“It appears that the incident is linked to a group of male cadets and midshipmen that is operating contrary to the values and standards expected of the ADF members and of future leaders,” he said.

“As this investigation is ongoing I cannot go into any further details about the nature of the allegations except to say that if substantiated the conduct is unacceptable and it is not in keeping with the expectations of future leaders of the Australian Defence Force.

“Conduct of this nature has consequences and it will not be tolerated.”

Air Marshal Binskin says 20 cadets and midshipmen are involved from all three Defence services in all three years of ADFA training and he expects more will be suspended in coming days.

Surely its only a problem if people were forced and unwilling, which actually isnt mentioned anywhere. Or because its done in a public place. Otherwise, is it a problem cos military men dont do things to other military men?

Ahaha, Eagle Rock…was always an early warning to any female to leave the dancefloor immediately.

LOL. I remember that at my local RSL.

Rumour has it they were playing Soggy Sao or something similar.

I had to look that up to find out what it was…yuck.

Well, if I was expected to put my balls on the line to cover someone else’s arse, I’d be expecting a bit of action in return.

It doesn’t really matter what the act was. The reality is that in the current climate, and being fully aware of how unacceptable this sort of behaviour is in the light of recent events at ADFA and other parts of the ADF, these fools went ahead and did their thing, and in public at a pub to boot.

How could any group of people be simultaneously so dim and so arrogant?

We simply don’t want people this stupid to be put in positions of responsibility and given the power of life and death over other people. Heaven forbid they should be entrusted with weapons.

I see this as a self applied lack-of-intelligence test that they’ve publicly failed. They should be quietly processed through the ADF disciplinary system, and those at fault should be moved back into civilian life ASAFP, to encourage the others.

According to the CT, their actions were reported by other ADFA students, and good on those people for taking their responsibility to the ADF so seriously, and demonstrating such courage.

How ’bout that…
It turns out that “In the dark all cats are grey” isn’t the Navy’s official policy.

Maybe it was just a harmless game of grab-ass, there’s nothing sexual about that.

explains more.

Kind of… but now we’re left to wonder if its an ADF thing, or a Rugby Club thing.

From memory, this sort of ritual never happened at my old university chess club evenings. But perhaps I’m just romanticising the past.

Wow – so I am wondering if the high school/college culture that they came from has an influence on how they behave…. sure would be interesting to see THAT info.

Perhaps the brass should acquaint, or re-acquaint, themselves with the Kinsey Report, and just tell the boys to be less ostentatious about their hijinks.

I’m guessing your time at university was different to mine, in that the rugby team didn’t perform sex acts on each other. Not in public anyway.

Except ADFA isn’t just another University.

This is an institution where kids get a free education in return for service to their country and some discipline.

You clearly haven’t bothered to read up on what they’re actually accused to have done. The behaviour that has been alleged is disgusting.

Yours might be the stupidest post of the week. And with the amount of trolling dungfungus has done this week, that’s a mighty achievement.

Yeah but most uni students don’t get given a gun at the end of the degree and then are made to exercise moral judgements about life and death in highly stressful conditions. If you let these scum get away with it now, that’s precisely how you end up with Abu Ghraib type incidents, or GIs shipping drugs home in coffins.
