I'm curious why this has happened.The military isn't isolated from the civilian world. In the U.S. civilian world, wealth has been re-distributed upward more and more over recent decades. With wealth goes power and the ability to be above the law. How many banking executives are going to jail for all the bank fraud of recent years?In short, the same thing that is happening with high-ranking civilian executives is happening with high-ranking military officers. And there is no reason to think it will do anything other than parallel it in the future as well. IMO, if you want to have high-ranking officers (civilian and military) to be less above the law, you need to reduce the U.S. gini coefficient for wealth.
