Get Out: Australia's Army Chief Is Evidently Not Cool With Sexual Assault

Abby Zimet

With Australia's military facing its own sexual scandal, some older and some newer involving "explicit emails and photos," Chief of Army Lieutenant General David Morrison made a video to make it clear where he (at least says he) stands on the issue. It's clear.

"Those who think that it is OK to behave in a way that demeans or expIoits their colleagues have no place in this army....I will be ruthless in rooting the army of people who cannot live up to its values, and I need everyone of you to support me in achieving this. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept."
