A former Garden Grove police officer was arraigned Thursday on charges that, while on duty, he forced four women to expose themselves by threatening to arrest them on drug charges if they did not cooperate. Geoffery A. Lynch, 26, of Chino Hills resigned from the department on Nov. 30, less than a month after a woman's complaint sparked an investigation by the Garden Grove Police Department and the Orange County district attorney's office.

The Navy's acting secretary said Wednesday that a "handful of junior officers" had sexually abused women at the Tailhook convention and that too many people "have been tarred with a brush they really don't deserve." Sean O'Keefe, in his first extensive comments on the scandal, said the service's morale "has been battered" as a result of the incidents at the 1991 aviators' convention in Las Vegas.

QUESTION: My friend recently signed a rental agreement she thought was month to month, but in fact is a one-year lease. Because she does not speak English, the landlord spoke with her in Spanish. The landlord showed the unit to my friend, asked her to sign a rental agreement that was written in English, and had her pay a deposit. My friend feels that the landlord misled her, and wants to terminate her tenancy with a 30-day notice. What can she do?

Regarding your criticism of my opposition to the military's facilitation of the sale of vile Hustler-type pornography ("Smut-Busters Purify the Military," editorial, May 6): Pornography is prima facie sexual harassment of women. Is that what our military is to stand for? Is that what The Times is seeking to protect within our best and most noble public institution of sacrifice? I was never so proud of The Times as when you dumped the pornography advertising of X-rated films, videos and slimy smut salons.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's largest retailer, is being sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over allegations of sexual harassment of female workers in Alabama. The lawsuit alleges the retailer violated a federal civil rights law when it failed to prevent the sexual harassment of women by a co-worker at the company's Mobile store. The EEOC has filed more than a dozen lawsuits against Wal-Mart, many for alleged violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act.

In a recent letter (Nov. 30) Margaret Mayotte of Glendale writes about the sexual harassment women have suffered at the Los Angeles Police Department. At the end of the letter she states "We don't need such people (i.e. 'juvenile, insensitive macho creatures') representing our LAPD. Let them find a job where their jokes and digs may be appreciated--digging ditches in Iceland." This statement reflects a similar kind of ignorance and prejudice that Mayotte is accusing these "macho creatures" for holding.

Re "U.S. Army Sex Scandal Grows in Germany," Feb. 21: Well, well, alas and alack, so now the feminists and liberal faction in Congress want to abate the alleged sexual harassment of women in the U.S. Army by increasing the recruitment of women to dilute the "old warrior" culture. The article notes that the Army now has 14% women. I always believed that to meet its obligations to defend the nation the U.S. Army was designed to be an organization of "warriors" old and new. Was I wrong?
