Could you imagine if hospitals got to have their own courts? Their own judge, jury, and executioners?

[edit]

JESUS CHRIST, read the insane leaps of faith in this article.

Universities also fill in for a criminal justice system that often fails to sufficiently punish perpetrators of sexual assault.

Universities do it because the justice system is flawed? So instead of reforming the justice system, you make your own?

"Nationally, police arrest a suspect in only half of the sexual assault complaints they receive," Marianne Mollman, a Human Rights Watch attorney, noted in a 2o11 Los Angeles Times editorial. "Most of those arrested are prosecuted, but fewer than two-thirds of those prosecuted are convicted."

So you're assuming all sexual assault complaints are valid, and all rejected claims are because of evil men with their evil corrupt penises of death? And that a COLLEGE somehow employs better investigators and police officers than the POLICE DEPARTMENT? That'd be like expecting Wal-Mart to hand out fair trials.

Unlike prosecutors and police, colleges must respond to students' complaints.

Lies.

And colleges have an easier time determining guilt than the courts: University disciplinary procedures only require "a preponderance of evidence" to determine guilt, while courts are held to a much higher standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt."

Lies and slander. These fuckers really believe that the cure to sexual assaults is a lower level of evidence required to prove a crime?

In other words, colleges must be 51% sure someone is guilty, while courts must be 99% sure.

Also a fucking lie if you're talking about a civil case. And if you have the truth on your side, why the fuck would you care what percentage of truth you have? If I have a text from a guy that says "I'm going to butt rape you, if you don't do my homework for me." TA DA. 100% evidence for any good lawyer.

Assault victims may also prefer for colleges to take charge: The lower burden of truth and diminished publicity may be more attractive than criminal proceedings that both embarrass and intimidate.

What. The. Fuck.

That statistic is particularly troubling given that around one in five female students will experience some form of sexual misconduct during college.

1 in 5 articles are founded by morons who can't fact check.

These laws, will remove minorities from schools, and the work force.

If you can afford a lawyer, then you can fight this, and get it fixed. But if you cannot.... you are ruined forever.

This is by far the most insidious law ever, and it will be abused, if it isn't already.

I'm curious why you refer to poor people as 'minorities'. Or does the word 'minority' these days actually refer to poor or 'underprivileged' people rather than literal minorities?

(Not disagreeing with your point, I've just noticed this trend with the wording and I was curious.)

It appears that even with a lawyer, you're fucked. This is NOT a race issue, this is a feminist issue. It really irks me when people make something racial when it's not. Please stop race baiting or provide valid stats to back up your accusations.

It makes perfect sense when you're operating on a presumption of guilt and reacting to the concept of the presumption of innocence.
