We all need to remember, that surrounding all of this is a young woman who may have been violated and may not have been treated with the due process she deserves. This is a terrible thing and justice must be served. I don't look at this with glee, only pity for the victim here..lets all keep this in perspective. It's about how Iowa is treating a college coed.
KF is the head man and deserves to go.
Sobering stat: Only 6% of college sexual assaults are reported, and of those convictions are tough to get. Worst case senario is letting the athletic department investigate as apparently has happened in Iowa City.
below from a Vermont case:
School Favors Football Players
While a student at Virginia Tech in September 1994, Christy Brzonkala reported she was raped by two football players. In an academic disciplinary hearing, the university found one athlete not guilty; the other was found guilty and suspended for two semesters. But the school later reversed its decisionójust in time for him to rejoin the football team for its fall opening game and regain a full athletic scholarship. Once the school exonerated both players, Brzonkala sued the athletes and the school for violating her civil rights under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Brzonkala's suit also sought to prevent Virginia Tech from ever again privately adjudicating felonious sexual assault and argued that the preferential treatment given to male athletes was a violation of Title IX.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes for more info to come out.
Info? What info? Nothing to see here, folks, just keep moving along.....:skeptical:
I wonder if they are going to double the rape victim's criminal penalty for reporting it to I.C. police, ala Saudi Arabia.
