In a The Hill piece entitled "Military commanders shouldn't have prosecution authority," we have another take on some of the arguments in favor of maintaining the status quo on disposition authority.
Schlueter and Schenck’s defense of the status quo boils down to their assertion that sexual assaults and rape are worse in civilian society, military members are more likely to be prosecuted than civilians and that commanders make reasonable decisions when determining who should be prosecuted.
Editor's note. Surely (yes, DMLHS, surely), the argument is not about whether the civilian or military justice system deal with the situation better, but about who in the military system could or would do it better.
