  • I get paid to travel. I just don't pick where.

An Australian Army captain who violated a male colleague with a beer bottle — in what his lawyer described as "tomfoolery gone wrong" during a work function— has been found guilty of rape.

Rhiley Boyson, 26, is expected to be sentenced by a court martial panel in Canberra on Wednesday.

On Tuesday the court heard the assault happened in the men's toilets during a work social event last year.

Prosecutor Sarah Robin said there had been a certain amount of low-brow humour in the toilets, which spiralled out of control.

"This was an instance of momentary penetration, a few seconds long," she said. :facepalm:

Wow. Any officer who lacks the common sense and decency to not rape a colleague with a beer bottle has no business wearing the uniform or bearing the responsibility of leadership over others. What a bloody idiot.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
