The highest-ranking officer convicted so far in a colossal Navy corruption scandal began accepting a cornucopia of gifts and prostitutes from an Asian defense contractor 20 years ago and later suffered a mental breakdown when he learned authorities were making arrests in the case, new court documents allege.

Robert J. Gilbeau became the first active-duty Navy admiral ever to be convicted of a felony when he pleaded guilty last year to lying to federal investigators. He is scheduled to be sentenced next month and likely faces up to 18 months in prison.

In a plea deal last June, Gilbeau admitted to making false statements about his contacts with Leonard Glenn Francis, also known as “Fat Leonard,” a crooked defense contractor from Singapore who has pleaded guilty to bribing scores of Navy officials. At the time, Gilbeau and federal authorities revealed little about the nature and extent of his relationship with Francis.

But in documents filed last week in federal court in San Diego, prosecutors allege that Gilbeau, 56, was corrupted in 1997 when he and another Navy officer met Francis during a port visit to the Indonesian island of Bali and succumbed to the contractor’s offer of free hotel rooms, lavish dinners and paid sex.

The relationship continued on a sporadic basis until 2012, according to prosecutors, who said Francis treated Gilbeau to numerous evenings at karaoke bars and luxury restaurants in Singapore, often capped off by assignations with prostitutes.

Prosecutors allege that Gilbeau also pocketed $40,000 in cash bribes from Francis as part of a kickback scheme to overcharge the Navy for pumping wastewater from its ships.

The revelations show that the origins and scope of the scandal — already the biggest in the Navy history — stretch back seven years earlier than previously known. In cases against two dozen other defendants, prosecutors have focused on wrongdoing that began in 2004 and lasted until Francis’s arrest in 2013.

Authorities said last year that more than 200 people, including 30 admirals, were under investigation for potential crimes or ethical violations. The new evidence suggests that the roster of suspects has expanded and raises questions about how far into the past authorities will reach to hold people accountable.

Francis planned to follow the Nimitz to its next stop in Hong Kong, where he promised to entertain the two officers again. “Looking forward to some major engagement in HK bachelors pad,” he wrote them in an email.

Instead, after a last-minute schedule change, the Nimitz returned to Singapore. In an email to Francis, Gilbeau asked if the contractor could arrange to take the two officers back to the same nightclub. His friend, he explained, wanted to see a “handball player” they had met during their last time in Singapore — a woman whom prosecutors described as “a particularly memorable prostitute.”

Francis enthusiastically agreed. “The Kahuna above has heard our prayers, will be standin by to Welcome you all back home to Papa Leonard soon,” he emailed. “The handball player is waiting eagerly to play.”

During the same 2003 port visit, prosecutors allege, Francis and Gilbeau conspired to overcharge the Navy for services provided to the Nimitz. Invoices show that Francis’s firm billed the Navy for pumping about 450,000 gallons of sewage and wastewater from the Nimitz over four days — about triple the usual amount.

Prosecutors contend that in exchange for approving the invoices, Gilbeau accepted about $40,000 in cash kickbacks from Francis. (Gilbeau has previously denied receiving money from the contractor.)

Their relationship resumed in 2005 when Gilbeau returned to Singapore to help coordinate the Navy’s tsunami relief efforts in the region.
Prosecutors allege that Gilbeau, who dubbed himself “Tsunami Bob,” went to dinner with Francis and partied with him at karaoke bars on three or four occasions. In addition, they allege that Francis, who called Gilbeau “Crazy Bob” or “Casanova,” paid for him to stay at the Singapore Marriott and other hotels several times.
Francis provided prostitutes to dozens of Navy officials over the years, and kept meticulous notes about the sailors’ physical desires so he could cater to their preferences, according to court records and interviews with people familiar with his methods.

According to Marine veteran and San Diego Union-Tribune military reporter Carl Prine, the naval service’s ethics watchdog — once led by a lenient admiral who’s now the chief of naval operations — “has only one ongoing court-martial, a pair of lighter nonjudicial punishment decisions and a handful of sternly written rebukes of senior officers to show for more than three years of inquiries” related to the scandal.

Among the officers who have been disciplined by the service, punishments have been surprisingly light — a fact that some critics say highlights the easier treatment commissioned officers get from NJP and courts-martial.

“When we go to boot camp and as we’re coming up in the military, we’re told that officers and chiefs are held to a higher level, a higher standard,” Navy veteran and Truman Foundation representative Shawn VanDiver told Prine. “But time and time again, we see that that’s just not the case.”

>Britain was supposed to wake up on Friday with the political clarity, finally, to begin formal negotiations to leave the European Union, a process scheduled to start in 10 days.

>Instead, the country is staring at a hung Parliament and a deeply damaged Prime Minister Theresa May, her authority and credibility fractured by her failure to maintain her Conservative Party’s majority in Parliament.

>Ignoring demands that she resign, the prime minister said on Friday that she would cling to power by forming a minority government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland.

>Because the Conservatives won the most seats and the most votes, Mrs. May gets the first chance to form a new government, despite winning only 318 seats, 12 fewer than in 2015, and short of a formal majority of 326 in the 650-seat House of Commons. The Democratic Unionists won 10.

>But minority governments tend to be fragile and short-lived, and many expect that Mrs. May will be a lame-duck prime minister, that she may not last as long as a year and that she will not lead her party into another election.

Cargo just sails through on the French side of the channel. And probably a good amount of economic damage to the British due to embargoes and lost trade and so on.

Not to mention that the UK is only barely a naval power these days. They need to have the French fly an Atlantique out to sweep for snoopers whenever one of their SSBNs leaves for a patrol.

apart from that's not what I said.

Meh, that's one way to look at it. We are a net importer from the EU, so hurting the UK is as detrimental to them as it is to us. The only sector that dominates in the EU is the city and even then the clamp down on salaries and the fact the UK has said it could become a tax haven off the EU coast should really out the kaibosh on the relocation of firms to Frankfurt.

There is fuck all Brussels could do to get it's grubby mitts on money per-say but it would scupper any possibility of a free trade agreement. Which as 972 said would cost everyone lots and lots of money.

Second rate naval power, there's the UK and (arguably) the French who can operate extended long range missions (other than the Naval hegemon that is the USA). Anglo-French Naval treaties go both ways my dude, its a con to save the cash they would spend maintaining two separate fully capable navies when they can just borrow bits here and there to plug the gaps.

>U.S. and Japanese vessels and aircraft searched Saturday for seven American sailors who were missing after their Navy destroyer collided before dawn with a container ship four times its size off the coast of Japan.

>The USS Fitzgerald was back at its home port in Yokosuka Naval Base south of Tokyo by sunset Saturday, its crew lined up on deck. The Philippine-flagged container ship was berthed at Tokyo's Oi wharf, where officials began questioning crew members about the cause of the nighttime crash.
>The U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement that the crash damaged two berthing spaces, a machinery room and the radio room. Most of the more than 200 sailors aboard would have been asleep in their berths at the time of the pre-dawn crash.

>Water was being pumped out of flooded areas and it was unclear how long it would take to get into the crushed mid-right side of the ship once it was at the pier in Yokosuka, the statement said.
>The Japanese coast guard said it received an emergency call from the container ship, the ACX Crystal, reporting the collision at around 2:20 a.m. (1720 GMT Friday). It was questioning crew members of the ACX Crystal, which is operated by the Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen K.K., and was treating the incident as a case of possible professional negligence, said Masayuki Obara, a regional coast guard official.

>The ACX Crystal weighs 29,060 tons and is 222 meters (730 feet) long, the coast guard said, much larger than the 8,315-ton Navy destroyer. The container ship's left bow was dented and scraped, but it did not appear to have sustained any major structural damage.

>Nippon Yusen said all of the ACX Crystal's 20-member Filipino crew members were safe.

>Preliminary findings in the investigation into the collision between the USS Fitzgerald and a Philippine cargo ship off the coast of Japan in June suggest the accident was caused by multiple errors by the Fitzgerald's crew and a failure to take action in the minutes leading to the collision, according to two defense officials.

>"They did nothing until the last second," one official said. "A slew of things went wrong." A second official said the crash "will wind up being our (the US Navy's) fault."

>The initial findings are just the first stage in what is expected to be a lengthy inquiry. Both officials said the initial investigation found that the Fitzgerald crew failed to understand and acknowledge the cargo ship was approaching and failed to take any action necessary to avoid the collision. It's also not clear if the crew ever called the commanding officer to come to the bridge.

>The officials say investigators are also looking at the possibility that the ship was traveling at a higher speed than expected to reach a location it was due to arrive at the next day.

A Washington judge on Friday ordered a retrial in the case of an activist who was arrested after laughing during Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s Senate confirmation hearing in January.

Desiree Fairooz’s arrest and conviction had sparked outrage from those who felt that it set “a dangerous precedent” for cracking down on political protests.

In a statement, Fairooz called the retrial a waste of time and taxpayer money.

Judge Robert E. Morin, the chief judge of the D.C. Superior Court, threw out a previous conviction for Fairooz, 61, who in May was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges of unlawful conduct on Capitol grounds and faced up to six months in jail.

She had attended Sessions’s Jan. 10 confirmation hearing along with about two dozen other members from Code Pink, a progressive activist group that regularly protests at Congress.

In the middle of the hearing — just after Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) stated that Sessions’s record of “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well-documented” — Fairooz laughed audibly.

  Nearly a week after being struck in the head with a bullet that fell out of the sky in Hammond, Indiana, 13-year-old Noah Inman died this weekend, the Hammond Police Department announced on Sunday.

According to the Hammond Police, the boy was outside playing basketball with a group of children around 9:30 p.m. July 1 when he suddenly fell. Witnesses believed the boy was having a seizure and immediately called for an ambulance.

At the hospital, doctors found the boy was struck from a falling bullet.

"The Hammond Police Department would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the Inman family. We wish you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts," Hammond Police Chief John Doughty said. "Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow. When reason fails, pray for peace. We will be praying with you."

It is believed that the gunfire came as part of a pre-July 4 weekend celebration.

"Unfortunately, this is a common action by many people who own guns in our city and they need to know this action has consequences and will be dealt with severely by the Hammond Police Department," the department said in a statement. "If you own a firearm, it is not to be used as part of a celebration."

A Go Fund Me page has been started to help the family with medical and burial expenses. Nearly $20,000 has been raised as of Sunday afternoon.

The boy's injury is not an uncommon one. On Jan. 1, a Texas legislator was hospitalized after being wounded by a falling bullet just after midnight. The bullet fractured Armando Martinez's skull, forcing doctors to perform a risky procedure to remove the bullet.

The idea is if you are able to stop then you aren't in immediate danger anymore, thus there is no more reason to fire anymore.

A decent defense lawyer might be able to spin it in your favor but a douche prosecutor and judge can still fuck you like a underprivileged youth in a Penn State shower. Again, a grey area legally, too much is relying on chance and luck.

Empty your entire load in one go removes the grey area usually, you fired until you literally could not fire anymore and even with a 6 shot revolver you put enough rounds in your target where even a lol 9mm could kill someone, save maybe a Democrat Senator. You make sure the threat is gone thus making sure any future possible legal threats are greatly diminished to the point of being nearer to impoosible.

It is a sad reality that yeah you can be fucked hard because you defended yourself, even in a relatively or entirely legal manner because its just your word backing you up.
