Similarity noted

ABC TV’s Lateline last night revealed a hitherto suppressed government report detailing “a decades-old culture of sexual and physical abuse in the Defence Force.”

The report describes a culture where victims are discouraged from reporting, perpetrators face no adverse consequences and a “... chain of command structure in defence (which) lends itself to superiors abusing juniors with impunity.”

Ignore the word ‘defence’ in that paragraph, and you might think you were reading about the Roman church.
