    Senior chief's horseplay crossed line, sailors say..

    Does "consensual horseplay" between a senior chief petty officer and lower-ranking sailors violate Navy regulations?

    If junior sailors begin treating their senior chief the way he treated them - with verbal insults and physical abuse - does that let the senior chief off the hook for his actions?

    The Navy's prosecution of Senior Chief Petty Officer Kevin M. Curtis may hinge on the answers to those questions. Curtis faces more than 15 counts of physically abusing younger masters-at-arms who worked for him in the security division of the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush. If he is convicted of all the charges against him, he could face more than 50 years in prison.

    Wow. Horseplay has it's place, but that senior chief not only stepped over the bounds, he took a running leap over them. Spastically violent and unstable people like that don't belong in the service.

    I agree. How did he last at leat 14 years? Somebody goofed. Or he has some sort of latent mental problems that have now surfaced.

    While horse play is a part of military life. Seems quite a bit of what he suppsedly did went well above what most would consider horseplay.
