The gang split into two teams to tackle two cases. Cal and Torres investigate a charge of Rape at the army whilst Dr. Foster and Loker investigate a college basketball player accused of taking a bribe. The rape case is particularly challenging because a private is accusing her sergeant of the crime and their unit is due to deploy to Iraq in 72 hours. The other case is much more straight forward but the reasons behind the crime prove to be very complex. Written by Mark Smith <>

Don't lose sight of the point
18 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The point of this episode isn't to bash on the military, it's to bring to light the fact that there are women serving in the military who are raped by their male counterparts. Don't take this as "oh, they're saying that all men rape women. Now us men are the bad guys". There are women in the military that share the same experiences as the character in this episode and their story has the right to be heard. Shindler's list wasn't meant to be an attack on the German people and this isn't meant to be an attack on the military, unless you find it offensive that bad things do happen in the military. The argument has been made that this is from the left liberal side. So does that mean brining to light some uncomfortable truths is liberal and covering them up is conservative? Also it's been 18% of rape cases are false which would mean that 72% of them are real and even more of them go unreported. It's amazing how upset people get when someone points out some uncomfortable facts. The truth is that the women in the military, or wherever, deserve better from us males. Who do you think that's raping them, other women? This episode is important because for too long the plight of women go unnoticed or slammed by those who are clearly too misogynist to know night from day. This does happen, not often, but it is a truth and I applaud this episode for brining it up. Women should not be treated as liars. The military keeps us safe. We love them. There is nothing wrong with wishing for a better tomorrow, a place where women don't need to be afraid of being raped (which they do, by the way). Women are people too.
