  •  For the embarrassment to be a factor (0+ / 0-)

    they would have to actually have some shame.

    •  not really (0+ / 0-)

      the embarassment factor works on institutions when it draws unneccessary and unwanted attention to their actions.  When they can no longer bury the wrongdoing because they have become so flagrantly public in ways that make the institution look stupid, actions frequently result.   They aren't ashamed, merely protecting their bureaucracies.  Catholic Church and the priest scandal,  it took years, huge public outcry, and some change,  we'll see if it is enough change to see the pedophiles thrown out and prosecuted instead of protected at the highest levels.  The military may have to start paying attention to the predatory violence practised on the troops instead of giving it a wink and a nod.
