Arlington police have charged Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski with sexual battery after a woman reported he grabbed her breasts and buttocks in a parking lot in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 5, before fighting him off.
Stars and Stripes reported Monday that Krusinski had been removed from his position as head of the Air Force’s sexual assault prevention and response branch. He will be arraigned on Thursday, where an Arlington judge will determine under whose jurisdiction he will be tried. The Air Force has requested jurisdiction over the case.
If these charges are proved to be true, maybe that’s why the Air Force’s brochure on sexual assault contains this: “It may be advisable to submit than to resist.” Aside from the odd grammatical construction of that sentence it’s odd for the armed forces of the United States to be advising its female members to be submissive to a sexual attacker. As a defensive firearms trainer my advice is simple: Never submit, never give up, develop the mindset that no matter what you are going to prevail. If you do that, if that is your mindset, your chances of prevailing will be greatly enhanced.
