    The incidence of rape in the military is horrific, but it is seemingly condoned by the government. As Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison experiment showed, when there are no consequences for actions, people will often behave in out-of-control ways when there are no limits to what they can do. In order for there to be a safe and respectful society within the military, and really in society as a whole, there need to be specific punishments that are carried out every time a rape or sexual assault occurs. If the potential cost of behaving this way outweighs any potential benefit, whether that benefit be sexual gratification or a sense of holding power over another, then and only then will the crimes stop.
