Why Choose Civil Air Patrol: Sex Trafficking Confession

Civil Air Patrol memeMajor Mark Norton, Civil Air Patrol spokesman on why you should consider Civil Air Patrol

by AuxBeacon News Contributors

[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.

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.

    This story went NORDO until yesterday. I hope the Civil Air Patrol freak show is investigated up the wazoo.


  2. I never realized how much rape, fraud, and suicides were going on until now. Funny how they never talk about it. Thanks for enlightening me, guys.

    [Admin: We’re just getting around to processing comments from the past few days. We combined your two comments into one. In case you’ve not see the news, former Air Force pilot and Senator Martha McSally revealed that she had been raped by a superior officer in the United States Air Force.


  3. It is sad, but David L. Goldfein is delusional. In order to produce more capable and trustworthy military pilots in the United States, we need to grow more young people capable of earning a college degree and a commission.

  4. Here’s a meme CAP members created for Legislative Week.

    [link redacted]

    [Admin: This one barely squeaked through, and only because the members only get so many borderline vetoes per month.]

  5. So, the CAP scum in control of CAPTALK shut down another thread in which a member or two were expressing their horror and concern that Cadet Protection is not really working. OldGuy was no doubt aware of the comments made by. Shutting the thread down because two people trying to cover CAP ass agree to it, only leads me to expose it all here.

  6. My squadron has some influential homosexuals in control. I think their boy toys get special access and fast track promotions.

  7. You could update the story. It was Romeo and Juliet gone sour and the part about him ignoring a direct no contact order, well that’s just inside the pathetic game of bitch USAFA cadets. These f’ers are playing for keeps in the real world.


  8. 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.

    • 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.”

  9. 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.”


  10. [Redacted] No mention of CAP in this version of the story. What gives the CAP the power [redacted]


    [Editor: If you notice, that story is dated 20 February, somewhat earlier than the ones that revealed his Civil Air Patrol affiliation. While ABN (nod to CAP cadets for this TLA) does have the evidence that CAP has attempted to remove its name from negative stories in the past, this might not be the best example. If you find another, later story that omits his Civil Air Patrol membership, please do share it here.]

  11. 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 and CAP

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

    Maybe CAP needs a little Congressional, eh?

  12. This went on for over 8 years and nobody noticed it in the CAP? CAP’s lame response about their so-called cadet protection policy makes it worse. The Cover up Air Patrol. I hope the girl victim sues the hell out of the CAP.

  14. I am watching in horror as CrAP apologists are claiming that CAP is only a subset of what happens in our society, but this isn’t so. Reports have shown the stats that sexual abuse is significantly more prevalent in military and para-military organizations than in free civilian life.

    What’s more, CAP moves quickly to remove online stories of their abuses. Broken links are breadcrumbs.

    Reprisals against whistleblowers and fraudsters promoted speaks volumes about how CAP is treading water.

  15. No mention of this on CrAPTALK. They are more concerned about what medal to wear on their blouse or some stupid award rather than a cadet that was sexually abused by one of their own. Gotta love the CAP!

  16. Civil Air Patrol leadership continues to fail even after all the coaching you have provided? Seems like some kind of curse to me.
