    are taken in civilian courts v. military courts?

    What are the respective conviction rates?

    What are the percentages of claims made that go to trial in each system?

    What are the average sentences per type of offense in each system?

    How likely is it do you think that a civilian prosecutor will take to trial a "date rape" with alcohol allegation versus a military jurisdiction?

    These are all questions one would think would need to be answered to properly assess both whether there is a problem with the military way of doing this, or if there is an overall societal problem (which I think there is) how more or less "bad" is the military vis-a-vis the civilian sector in handling this.
