The University of Southern California is facing a federal civil rights investigation after students filed a complaint that alleged the school ignored campus rape and failed to prosecute attackers even after they confessed.
One anonymous USC student involved in the complaint said that campus police had decided she wasn't raped because her alleged attacker did not orgasm, the Huffington Post reported Monday.
"Because he stopped, it was not rape," she was told, per the complaint. "Even though his penis penetrated your vagina, because he stopped, it was not a crime."
The campus police did not refer the student's case to the Los Angeles police department.
Another student, according to the complaint, was told by the university Department of Public Safety that women should not "go out, get drunk and expect not to get raped" when she tried to report a rape.
The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights is investigating potential violations of Title IX, the federal gender equality law that criminilizes a failure to respond to claims of sexual violence.
Reed, the lead complainant, said USC dismissed her claim that her ex-boyfriend had raped her, despite her providing audio recordings of him admitting to it. At one point, Reed said, a USC official told her the goal was to offer an "educative" process, not to "punish" the assailant.
Gotta make a careful distinction... there is ‘rape’, and then, there is ‘rape rape’.
What sports team did he play for?
Is USC in Dubai?
What a farce.
Why do these women go to the campus police anyway? same thing with the Sandusky mess. Can’t they go to the REAL police? That’s where I would go.
These campuses still need real police to enforce real laws.
Is this a Muslim college? /s
Ooops! Wrong girlfriend........ ;-)
Is it really any wonder that Vince Foster's body turned up in a place where Park Police would have jurisdiction?
My first thought also.
I read the articles. I almost feel sorry for any campus police department. Almost.
Imagine how many times a week they have to deal with sluts coming in claiming they were raped when in fact they just got drunk - had consentual sex - and then regretted it later.
Now you’re putting victims in a Salem witch trial sort of double-bind. According to Akins, it wouldn’t have been rape if she got pregnant, because would me she enjoyed or welcomed it. And, if she doesn’t get pregnant, well, by the USC standard it sounds like it wasn’t rape.
Wasn’t that Bill Clinton’s MO back in his trolling days?
Dina Mo Hummmmmmm
The Muslim brotherhood member and former Egyptian president, Morsi, is an alumnus of USC. “Fight on to victory, fight on for USC....”
What if the attacker had used a Trojan (as in USC Trojans)?
Whoopi: Yeah, that sounds about right.
