A new Pentagon policy targeting harassment includes a crackdown on "offensive jokes" and "put-downs."
The 23-page set of regulations, Department of Defense Instruction 1020.03: “Harassment Prevention and Response in the Armed Forces," was released by the Pentagon on Thursday. The document outlines a "comprehensive, DoD-wide military harassment prevention and response program."
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis claims the new rule is a product of the times and will not affect military camaraderie.
“You have to adapt to your times,” Mattis said. “There’s a rough, good humor among soldiers. We all know that. But I have never seen rough good humor countenance or in any way frame something that’s disgusting, repellent or something like that.”
