Expect the college to be sued by each student.
Not excusing the men for having group sex with the woman, but she’s a slut. No moral high ground on either side.
If she was indeed raped, she should have been truthful about the location.
Seriously? Please. Must we have conspiracy theories everywhere?
Anyway ... looks like some very sloppy investigation. One thing I loved about my office is that our investigators were very thorough.
but one of the accused said he wants his dignity back... haha...
How is this possible? I was told that women, particularly college women, simply don’t make up accusations of rape and thus due process and a fair hearing is not necessary. And yet so many of these cases get dismissed in this way once evidence comes to light. Something is amiss. . .
It’s not a conspiracy theory. The federal government under Obama has required universities to reduce the burden of proof for sexual assault cases, under threat of losing federal funding, and this is documented:
“Sexual violence was not only a crime that could land a perpetrator in jail, the Office for Civil Rights in the Education Department told schools in April 2011. It was also a form of harassment prohibited by federal anti-discrimination law, a declaration that required colleges to take vigorous steps to prevent sexual violence and provide a prompt and equitable response whenever cases arose.”
“They also expressed concerns about the federal government’s 2011 directive to apply a lower burden of proof “preponderance of evidence” in these sexual misconduct hearings, instead of the higher standard of “clear and convincing evidence” that some campuses had been using.
That directive by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights also gave both parties the right to appeal a decision, which critics argue amounts to “double jeopardy” for the accused student who was cleared once.
“I think there has been a significant amount of pressure on universities to treat all of those accused of sexual misconduct with a presumption of guilt,” said Robert Shibley, senior vice president of the Philadelphia-based Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, a leading voice for free speech and due process rights at colleges and universities.”
“In April of 2011, the U.S. Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a Dear Colleague letter (the Letter) to all institutions under its purview, addressing sexual violence in educational
programs and activities. The Letter is OCRs first publication focusing primarily on instances of student-against-student rape and sexual assault in school settings; among other innovations, it lays out specific procedures educators must now follow in investigating and resolving these claims.
By way of background, the Letter represents the latest interpretation of Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972.
Like any statutory right, Title IX is only as effective as the remedy it provides for a schools noncompliance. Title IX has a dual enforcement scheme: someone who claims to have been a victim of sex discrimination, i.e., a complainant, can both sue his or her educational institution directly in civil court and also file a complaint with OCR, a federal executive agency with the power to terminate the federal funding of any institution that violates the statute.”
I suppose the amount of dignity he lost depends on the attractiveness of the woman. ;-)
I suspect a woman who engages in group sex is not very attractive.
I am confused... Isn’t homophobia a term used by child molesters to accused the raped child of a hate crime?
seems like they are talking from both sides of their mouthes.
if all you say is true, then he is not able to recover his dignity...
I’m not sure what you are talking about, maybe you can quote what you are referring to?
I read somewhere that up to 60% of rape accusations are false; it has been shown that women will lie about rape because they do not want their father, husband or boyfriend to know that they have been screwing around so they will accuse some poor guy they don’t know or barely know of rape.
He had none to begin with, so there can be no loss of dignity. It merely got exposed along with hers.
Out of curiosity, was the woman black, white, or some other race? Cops may have handles the case differently if the alleged “victim” was white as opposed to being black.
