I think this is the proper place to put this.

Those of us who have connections or friends and family in the Canadian forces are feeling a little shocked today. The Commander of the base I spect every summer on for my teenage years is charged with murder, sexual assult, forcible confinement (Kidnapping) and B&E.

I didn't know the guy, but I guess you feel that people in that level of responsibility should be ...I don't know... better? If he is guilty I hope he gets charged to the full extent of the law, but our troops did not need this right now, particularly in Trenton where we have the ceremonies for all our fallen soldiers in Afghanistan.

Anyway, I am slightly disturbed by this beyond what I think I should be.

The really disturbed ones are the people you'd never suspect.

A bit of shock, but I was talking to some of my friends on base, and they said they feel safer too. I guess it is both good and bad.

There is crazy covereage now, trying to figure out how someoone like this got promoted to such a position of responsbility.
