In defense of Lt. Cmdr. Rebecca Dickinson…April 11th, 2008 - 11:30 pm ICT by amritpal
A Navy officer Lt. Cmdr. Rebecca Dickinson has testified that she had sex for money while working for an escort service. She also informed the court she had serviced clients for D.C. Madam Deborah Jeane-Palfrey at rates of $250-$300 per hour. This incident has come to light now and has made her a bad girl in no time, who has otherwise had a good career profile. Dickinson had two Navy/Marine Corps Commendation medals and four Navy/Marine Corps Achievement medals, say sources.
Shaken? So what do we want from her now? Confession? she has already done it. Dickinson’s civilian lawyer said she understands her career is over. Dickinson was fired from her position as an instructor at Naval Supply Corps School.
She also said “It was getting harder for me to do,” Dickinson testified. “I had other responsibilities. I didn’t like it.” She added, “I quit for many reasons. . . . Partly because of other commitments.”
She has testified it all and she is not the only woman in this “D.C. Madam Deborah Jeane-Palfrey” case. There are a lot of others like her, then she is only being singled out? Just because she happened to be in navy?
The real culprit is Madam Deborah Jeane-Palfrey. She is the one who is the director of this mega opera. With 13 years of experience and millions of dollars under her belt, she is playing the game very cleverly.More than a dozen former escorts and customers of Palfrey’s Pamela Martin & Associates escort service have testified against her. As a mark of shrewdness, Palfrey has maintained she ran a legal “adult fantasy” business, in which escorts signed contracts pledging they wouldn’t get caught doing anything illegal.
Then the other culprits are the people who pay for sex. They will never be nabbed and there will be more dickinsons who will be fall prey to these people’s demands and their own circumstances. Let Rebecca Dickinson be left alone to think and act in peace. Let law and life take their course while we try not to be judgmental.
