Mmm. First thoughts: 1. Pressure not to elect for Court Martial. I am aware of numerous occasions on which soldiers have been coerced or pressured in to accepting Summary Hearings, not proper, open Courts Martial. I believe that Summary Hearings are fundamentally unsafe. They are not magistrates' courts - but we have a system that is (broadly) fair - courts martial: why not ditch Summary Hearing, and use existing, fair Courts Martial. 2. Service Complaints. Service Complaints are glacially-slow, and while I've never made a complaint myself, I have seen people victimised by the chain of command for having done so. Personally, I don't trust the Army to mark its own homework. 3. Military "justice" in untrained commanders. I trust the civilian courts system - I do not trust military officers (like me), to sit as trial judge, prosecutor, jury, sentencing judge, as well as Commanding Officer/OC. If commanders are following ALS legal advice, why don't we just dispense with the commanders? If they're not following that advice, WTF are the doing, and why? What about everyone out there - what are your experiences?
