So the story continues in the mishandle UNC rape case. The university made a decision… of some sort (aka CYA):
“For several weeks, the University has grappled with how best to respond to a public claim of retaliation against the university while maintaining the autonomy and integrity of our Honor Court proceedings and the privacy of the individuals involved,” UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp wrote in a message to students, faculty and staff. “Recognizing the potential conflicts that may exist by allowing both processes to continue, we have asked the student attorney general to suspend the Honor Court proceeding pending an external review of these allegations of retaliation”.

Is this justice? Yes we know the rape was ‘alleged’, but she was still a victim, then you retaliate against her because you did not like that she talked about her experience, and then you ‘suspend’ the case not close it, without an apology. Guess what? She still needs compassion and help!
Sexual assault on college campus needs to be stopped and now. Why is this such a difficult concept to understand? Keep our students safe!
