Far too early to start pointing fingers

This case is one big, confusing mess, and there are a lot of things that remain to be discovered. For example, he was seen in Louisiana yesterday - why did SHE purchase a bus ticket to El Paso in early December? Everyone even loosely associated with this case has remarked that they remained friends after she reported the alleged rape. How did he know her PIN to use her ATM card right before Christmas? The part about her having to move off base because of harassment is likely nonsense. She was due to deliver this month, and would HAVE to move out of the barracks once that child was born. Setting up a home off base two months early is not surprising at all. I've known lots of female Marines who have done it. As far as locking him up as soon as the charges were levied, there is quite a bit required to have pre-trial confinement approved. That becomes even more complicated based upon the nature of the rape - fairly easy for forceable, violent rape. Not very likely in the case of he-said-she-said date rape. In the entire time I was a company First Sergeant, I never recall a date-rape charge even sticking. It's going to be a very long time before blame can be placed on anyone, as far as who screwed up, when, and if at all.
