[Editor’s Note: Multiple comments and contact submissions have come in this evening about the arrest of yet another Civil Air Patrol officer in a teen sex abuse story. Air Force Chief of Staff David L. Goldfein may be lamenting his pilot shortage, but any hope he places in Civil Air Patrol is ill-advised. Thank you for your contributions.]

AuxBeaconeers, this story is just breaking.

A high profile Civil Air Patrol Commander from Stanwood, Washington has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking his teen babysitter.

CAP Major Mark Norton reportedly met his alleged victim in 2007, when he was 33 years old. She was a 16-year-old cadet in the Paine Field Squadron of Washington Wing Civil Air Patrol. In 2008, he asked her to babysit his children and soon began grooming her. He was able to cajole the young cadet into having sex with him and moved her into his basement. His spouse uncovered the relationship in 2009 and divorced him.

Detectives revealed that Major Norton led his cadet to prostitution with “clients” found online, keeping the money for himself. The girl was even led to marry his immigrant barber, who was in need of a green card.

[Editor’s note: Major Norton gained minor celebrity in Civil Air Patrol for his work in a recruiting video that disgusted former members of Civil Air Patrol have captured and sent to us. He most recently served as deputy commander of the Washington Wing’s Northwest Group.]

In response to this event and AuxBeacon’s continued reporting, Civil Air Patrol has issued a statement saying Norton — a major who most recently served as deputy commander of the Washington Wing’s Northwest Group — was immediately suspended from its membership. (Each state is considered a “wing.”) The statement says all members must undergo an FBI background check and Norton was most recently cleared for membership in October 2017. All senior members also undergo training in accordance with the Patrol’s cadet-protection policy, the statement says.

Updates

Because this Civil Air Patrol major has confessed to what he has done, a cadet suggested replacement of the word “allegations” in the title with “confession”.

Another helpful AB reader points out that the news this month is “just horrible” for Civil Air Patrol. With:
1. two sex cases,
2. right wing radicalization and grooming of teens,
3. members making/selling fully auto weapons
4. alcohol
5. service members with hit lists on US elected leaders

All of this is coming out right before legislative week too so that Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be sure to find out where their future opposition is being indoctrinated.

    You seem busy. So, maybe use my graphic or this link to ballotpedia to show that Civil Air Patrol Commander-in-Pimp Mark L. Norton tried to get into public office with a position of authority over children.

    I will post this here and on your Mark L. Norton story in hopes it don’t get lost.

    This story went NORDO until yesterday. I hope the freaks are investigated up the wazoo.

  3. I’m a CAP cadet. What’s sad is that I never realized how much rape, fraud, and suicides (I could list so many more things wrong with CAP but I’ll end the list there) were going on until now. Funny how they never talk about it. Thanks for enlightening me, guys.

  4. Cadet protection policy (CPPT) is meaningless. CPPT origin is with CAP’s insurance to lessen litigation settlements. It provides little to no protection. The CAP has made no statement about an internal investigation.

    “The Patrol issued a statement Wednesday, saying Norton — a major who most recently served as deputy commander of the Washington Wing’s Northwest Group — was immediately suspended from its membership. (Each state is considered a “wing.”) The statement says all members must undergo an FBI background check and Norton was most recently cleared for membership in October 2017. All senior members also undergo training in accordance with the Patrol’s cadet-protection policy, the statement says.”

  5. That’s true, Civil Air Patrol members have been threatened for pressing on with a complaint. But there’s more to it. When all a member’s friends and value are tied-up in Civil Air Patrol, the shunning can lead to heavy drinking or attempting to commit suicide down by the river.

    I’ve seen testimony and heard audio evidence of CAP investigators and inspectors using these past outcomes to their bosses advantage by suggesting to a complainant that they should drop their case or things “won’t end well for you” because of counter dirt collected and fabricated during the investigation.

    Remember what Roy Moore was reported to have said:

    “You’re just a child. I am the district attorney of Etowah County and if you tell anyone about this no one will ever believe you.”

  6. This individual had Civil Air Patrol command authority over his victim. Civil Air Patrol members have been terminated in the past for insubordination or insubordinate attitudes. CAP’s mouthpieces are suggesting that Civil Air Patrol should be left out of the headline and that King County Metro should somehow take the hit for this instead? Well, that’s just pathetic.

  7. The Seattle Post Intelligencer included the Civil Air Patrol relationship in the story, but not in the headline.

    “Norton had met the alleged victim while the two of them were in the Civil Air Patrol, in 2007, according to probable cause documents. He was a major, and she had recently joined as a cadet.”

  8. Time for CAP and the Vatican to get together and have a lil come to Geeezus meeting.

    Preeettttyy embarrassing to see these clowns in uniform when many of us served properly in the US military.

    How’s that CPPT wuuuuurkin out for ya CAP??

    Maybe CAP needs a little Congressional, eh?

    The news coming out this month is just horrible. We have:
    1. two sex cases,
    2. right wing radicalization and grooming of teens,
    3. members making/selling fully auto weapons
    4. alcohol
    5. service members with hit lists on US elected leaders

    All of this is coming out right before legislative week too so that Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be sure to find out where their future opposition is being bred.

  10. This went on for over 8 years and nobody noticed it in the CAP….Come on, nobody knew??? I find that hard to believe. And CAP’s lame response about their so-called cadet protection policy is an outrage. This organization should be shut down.

  11. I think the thing that bothers me above all else is that the CAP is aggressively trying to recruit youth while covering up and hiding sexual abuse (and abuse of other kinds).

    Any large youth organization is going to have some sexual predators. ANY. But the attention to removing stories on the abuse from online quickly, the fact that whistleblowers are suppressed and punished, crooks rewarded, that speaks volumes about the CAP while Congress looks the other way. It disgusts me.

  12. No mention of this on CAPTALK. They are more concerned about what medal to wear on their blouse or some trivial award rather than a cadet that was sexually abused by one of their own.

  13. He will be reinstated A-la “Hold-em” [Jonathan Holder] was. 😀 nothing to see here.
