Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.
Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.
If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.
Reblogging for signal boost, and to add TW
This guy was actually on my ship when this happened. He’s a real dirt bag. But anyway after this went viral he went UA, but the rumor is two chiefs tracked him down and brought him back. We’re underway at the moment and he missed ships movement. So he has already violated three huge rules in the uniform code of military justice. Our commanding officer and executive officer are not ones to let things like this slip. He’s going to be first sent to captain’s mast then if deemed necessary he will be court martialed.
Bottom line is this guy is definitely getting discharged
Getting discharged from the navy for other reasons via UCMJ isn’t the same thing as getting punished for making rape threats though. Hope the Navy makes that clear and actually takes care of this.
I miss you.
