Navy Probes Facebook Group with Nude Photos of Female Marines
Some of the photos on the "Marines United" Facebook page sparked sexually-explicit remarks and some men encouraging each other to sexual assault or rape female Marines. The secret Facebook group, called Marines United, has almost 30,000 members. The cloud storage folder has been removed at the request of the military, the official said.
Marine officials on Sunday said the branch was looking into a number of Marines, as well as current and former service members, who shared naked and compromising photos of their female colleagues on social media through a shared drive on a Facebook group called Marines United.
The Marine Corps Times, an independent newspaper focusing on issues involving the service, first revealed the existence of the photos when it published on Saturday an internal Marine Corps communications document that detailed how the service should respond.
Brennan described some of the photos he discovered as taken from "the consensual, but private, exchange of racy images, some clearly taken by the women themselves", but others looked like the work of stalkers, taken without the women's knowledge or consent. "We are exploring what actions should be taken to best address this form of harassment in the future", Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Ryan Alvis said in a statement.
Marine Corps Times is reporting that hundreds of Marines may be caught up in the scandal.
On its Reveal website, the Center for Investigative Reporting found that since January 30, more than two dozen women, including active duty and enlisted service members had been identified by their rank, full name and military duty station in photographs posted and linked to from a private Facebook page called "Marines United". "It allowed us to take immediate action to have the explicit photos taken down and to prepare to support potential victims".
"We are thankful that Thomas Brennan, a Marine veteran, notified the Marine Corps and NCIS about what he witnessed on the "Marines United" page".
It's not clear how many active-duty Marines and other service members were involved or are under investigation.
Congressman McEachin also said, "While there may be folks that wished they were not involved in combat, women are involved in combat and need to be treated appropriately". "This behavior destroys morale, erodes trust, and degrades the individual".
The commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps is condemning the use of a secret Facebook page by some Marines to share nude photos of women, including female Marines. And there may be questions about the Marines who knew about the site, but never reported it. While War Horse, a nonprofit news organization run by Marine veteran Thomas Brennan, was the first to reveal the activity. One distinctly recalled being stalked by her surreptitious photographer.
Top brass in the U.S. Marines had denounced the online misbehavior by Marines, which included photographing and sharing photos of women recruits and veterans and making salacious comments about them. "And with some of the stuff I see them saying about women, that's just not happening".
"Degrading behavior of this kind is entirely unacceptable".
"Let me cut to the chase". The Marine Corps does not condone this sort of behavior, which undermines its core values.
