    The dismissal from the Academy was only to be expected. But only 45 days confinement? Air Force Academy cadets are supposed to be held to higher standards and, as such, they should be subject to matching sentences if found guilty of a crime. This sentence is a mere slap on the wrist, and seems indicative of the inequitable way the military administers justice. It’s barely better than just sweeping it under the rug.
