The US military UU They are investigating another case of lascivious photographs of members of the women’s service shared on social networks.
Marine Corps officers have called the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) after revelations from Vice News last week that 267 images of female service members had been shared in a Dropbox folder called “Hoes Hoin.”
Most of the images in the folder show women in military clothing. Some show women’s faces, identification plates, uniforms and identification tags.
Some of the photos had previously been shared in other online groups, while others appear to be new, Vice said.
According to the spokesman of the Marine Corps, an ongoing investigation already exists and through NCIS appropriate measures have been taken. Additionally, the Pentagon is also aware of and investigating the case.
The Dropbox company for its part removed the link and the folder where the images appeared.
The army has had problems coping with the behavior of service members on social networks since last March, when it was revealed that 30,000 people had joined a now defunct Facebook group called United Marines, where on active duty and veteran marines shared nude photos of female and other service members , made derogatory comments about them and threatened some of the women.
Misbehavior in social networks of active members
The Commander of the Marine Corps, General Robert Neller, responded to the scandal in a video, telling Marines to concentrate on training to fight against adversaries, not “hiding in social networks” and participate or allow online activities that do not respect or damage your service colleagues.
Since then, the Marine Corps has cracked down on online misconduct, judging seven Marines, separating six and awarding 14 non-judicial punishments and 28 adverse administrative actions, Marine Corps officials told the Military Times.
In a video posted on Twitter last week, the Marine Corps said it has trained 200,000 Marines and investigated 131,000 images, 168 websites and 123 people, 55 of which have been punished.
“Marines are expected to intervene and report every instance of online misconduct to the extent required by law,” the video said.
