    “On Capitol Hill to testify on the defense budget, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that the Air Force has requested jurisdiction in the Krusinski case from prosecutors in Arlington, where he will be arraigned on one count of sexual battery. A decision on jurisdiction should be made at that time, Welsh said.

    ‘We have requested jurisdiction, which is standard procedure in cases like these,’ Welsh said.”

    Yes, but we don’t want the standard response. Too many times it doesn’t really get prosecuted. I think that they should prosecute in the civilian courts.
