Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Many colleges are failing to follow the most basic practices for responding to and preventing sexual assaults on campus, according to a first-of-its kind national survey released by Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, a former sex-crimes prosecutor. Among the findings: Twenty percent of schools provide no sexual-assault awareness training for faculty and staff; 31 percent provide no training for students. Also, many campuses do not follow recommended practices for adjudicating complaints of sexual assault. Just over one-quarter have students participating on disciplinary boards, which experts say can create privacy concerns and conflicts of interest. More than 20 percent give the athletic department oversight in cases involving athletes.

Why would they do anything about reporting crime on campus when it hurts profits and bonuses for the typically connected CEO that they work for?

My guess is that it is a race sex baiting politician who wants to play the women vs men game for votes, instead of recognizing the reality which are the elites of the Chamber of Commerce and Wall St and elsewhere versus society.

They are trying to get more women to vote for hillary despite the fact that her views are even more fascist then obamas.

There is rape in which a woman (or man) is grabbed & drug into the bushes (or wherever) and violated, and there is rape in which a person has gotten too drunk and doesn't have a friend around who has their back (as opposed to being drugged with roofies or whatever).

Both are rape, but the victim in the second instance is the less sympathetic of the two (less so depending on the amount of encouragement / "yes" signals the victim has given the assailant).

When my crowd was tripping, in the early days, there was a monitor who kept the situation non-dangerous, non-exposed to hostiles. While using hard drugs, it's always advisable to have a monitor.

The woman beside me / is holding my hand
I point at the ceiling / she smiles so kind ~ human kindness

Yes, a non-sociopath would certainly prefer the latter method to an unwilling, terrified, restrained partner.

Why is the school involved in the investigation and punishment of these crimes anyway? Can't that be the police's job?

#7 The local police department is getting plenty of free tickets to games to let the athletic department cover up the rapes.

Ever since the 'I was drunk when I gave consent' rape accusations started being taken seriously, I've taken such statements by universities with a large grain of salt.

If being drunk makes it rape even with consent, then every man who got consensually laid while under the effect beer-goggles was raped (and if the women was drunk too it was MUTUAL rape).
