It's far too early to blame the Marine Corps

This is a tragedy, but every single story cites the fact that the victim and her murderer obviously had some kind of relationship after the alleged rape and despite the protective order. There are also aspects of this story that raise red flags to those of us who spent a lot of time in the Corps. Was she being harassed, or did her leaders simply question why she was pressing charges against this man she evidently still had a friendship with? Her uncle claiming that harassment drove her to move off base may be totally false, for she was due to deliver her child this month, and would HAVE to had moved off base once that child was born. Getting a household set up two months early would certainly not be unusual, and I have known many female Marines who have done just that. Let the investigation take its course and let all the facts emerge before we start throwing stones at the Corps.
