    Absolutely disgusting!

    I think it is high time we figure out a punishment for sexual offenders across the board!

    Sorta reminds me of the Russel Williams thing, except this guy was just a soldier, not in command of anything. Plus, I don't think he killed any of his victims. But, it's possible he could have graduated to that if he didn't get caught.
