  • Should Guilt and Innocence Matter On Campus? : California date rape bill creates a consent muddle.

    National Review ^ | 06/17/2014 | Spencer Case
    California politicians are aiming to entrench and expand an Obama-administration policy that has questionable implications for the rights of the accused. Senate Bill 967 would require California universities whose students are receiving financial assistance to change their sexual-misconduct policies. Colleges would be required to follow a standard of “affirmative consent” from students engaging in sexual activities and follow a “preponderance of evidence” standard for disciplinary measures. The bill, co-sponsored by California state senators Kevin De León (D., Los Angeles) and Hannah-Beth Jackson (D., Santa Barbara), is in part a reaction to the newly established White House Task Force to Protect...

    Do American young women deserve a sacred, federally-protected right to engage in reckless, irresponsible and even illegal behavior with no fear of consequences? Vice President Biden seems to think so. After a White House meeting in January to announce a new task force to curb sexual assaults on campus, the ever-effusive VEEP declared that every woman should expect such federal protection “no matter what she’s wearing, no matter whether she’s in a bar, in a dormitory, in the back seat of a car, on a street, drunk or sober.” His remarks accompanied the release of a new report by the...

    Orson Scott Card, whose science-fiction book Ender's Game is being released as a film, is a conservative Mormon with a long history of attacking gay people and their rights. He's also one of the most respected sci-fi writers of all time. This has really got sci-fi fans and gay rights activists in a moral dilemma as the momentum for the film builds up to its November 1 release. Orson Scott Card has gone far beyond opposing gay marriage. In 1990, he wrote in Mormon publication Sunstone Magazine, “Laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books, not to be indiscriminately...

    To the shock of America, Katie Couric admitted she shared an intimate evening with Larry King. Yes, the bespectacled, suspender wearing, grandfatherly TV-news journalist who is 23 years Couric’s senior. On last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Couric recounted in striking detail about the Italian dinner date she went on with King 26 years ago in Washington, DC. After dinner, King drove them back to his apartment where he tried to put the moves on her. “So we sat there and what can I say, he lunged,” Couric said (to the delight/horror of everyone watching probably.)

    Date rape has been in our lexicon for a few decades now, fact is a majority of people have become quite familiar with the lines that separate consensual and non consensual sex. However, our present attitude about rape was not always the same as it is today. There has always been warnings to girls that they should not allow themselves to be in certain situations that could lead to unwanted advances from boys. There has been many a woman who has claimed they were raped while the only defense the man had was the girl allowed things to progress...

Greenburgh detectives charged ex-cop Jose Arroyo, 46, with the November rape and kidnapping of the 31-year-old woman. Arroyo, who left the force in 2005, slipped a drug in the woman's drink while they chatted at Doyle's Pub in Throggs Neck, police said. ">Snip<"

  • Man arrested with 3 gallons of 'date-rape drug' GHB in car (on his way to a party in San FRancisco)

    A man who was stopped for speeding was arrested after three gallons of the "date-rape drug" GHB were found in his car, enough for 20,000 doses, authorities said. Daniel Gertz, 37, of Los Angeles, was taken into custody on multiple felony charges including possession and transportation of a narcotic for sale, according to the California Highway Patrol. GHB, which stands for gamma-hydroxybutyrate, creates a euphoric, drunken feeling in low doses and can knock people out in higher amounts. Authorities said Gertz was transporting the drug to a party in San Francisco when he was stopped Wednesday for driving 88 mph...

They don't remember much, just glimpses, they said: pushing the man away as they lay naked in bed, waking up and feeling as if something very bad had happened. But did Jeffrey Marsalis, 33, drug the women and force them to have sex with him, as prosecutors implied, or, as his lawyers say, were the acts consensual? A jury may get to decide. Common Pleas...

This is not a mom and pop lab.” Investigators found chemicals used to manufacture crystal...

The appeals court ruled there was a "lack of sufficient grounds and serious suspicions" to keep the restrictions on Joran van der Sloot and two Surinamese brothers, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, the Aruban prosecutor's office said. The three young men remain suspects in the May 30 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, the prosecutor's office said in a statement. Holloway,...

Thomas Miller, a 35-year-old personal trainer from Santa Rosa, remained jailed in Sonoma County this morning in lieu of $50,000 bail, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

If you're a woman born 20 years ago, you probably don't even recognize Dworkin's name. Yet, there's a good chance you've had some seriously frustrating dates with her unwitting progeny: the guy who waits until date three or four—not to grab you, throw you up against the wall and suck face—but to politely inquire, "May I kiss you?" Equal pay for equal work? It's a beautiful thing. Equal opportunity? Thrilled to have it. We women owe an enormous debt to Susan...

    More than one in four sexual assaults occur after a woman has been drugged by her assailant, according to new Canadian research. The study, published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, shows that the incidence of so-called ''date-rape drugging'' has increased dramatically in the past decade. It also reveals that the vast majority of those who are drugged, then raped, are teenagers aged 15 to 19. The study, conducted by a team led by Margaret McGregor of the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia, is believed to be the first to measure the extent of...

Ultimately, the media's treatment of this matter will result in more people going to the Internet and talk radio for their news.

His crushing victories in the Nevada and Washington DC caucuses on Saturday, have tightened his grip on the nomination. Tomorrow’s primary in Wisconsin may be the last realistic chance Senator John Edwards and Howard Dean have of stopping his march to victory.

Consider the following case from August of 2000. Two University of Denver students went on a date. Both agreed that they drank alcohol and smoked marijuana, that the woman invited the man back to her room, that they engaged in intimate physical contact, and that she allowed him to spend the night with her. Then their stories diverged. The woman claimed that, when the man attempted...

    A Kaiser Permanente anesthesiologist has admitted to ordering controlled substances over the Internet that when mixed together produces gamma hydroxibutyric acid, or GHB, better known as the "date rape drug." In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court yesterday, Dr. Peter Edward Fong told federal authorities he used the drugs to help him sleep. He claimed he thought it was legal to order the drugs. Fong, who works at the Moanalua Medical Center, was arrested yesterday for importing quantities of gamma hydroxibutyric acid lactone, or GBL, and butanediol, or BD -- both industrial solvents closely related to GHB. He was...
