“The culture of mass incarceration has warped our psyches into thinking that lengthy jail or prison terms are always the answer to criminal behaviors like sexual assault,” Sajid Khan San Jose public defender. “They’re not.” The media are treating Turner’s jail time as the sum total of his sentence. But it’s not six months and he’s off scot free…other attorneys maintain that Turner’s punishment of jail time, probation, a felony conviction, and the lifetime requirement to register as a sex offender is “being mis-characterized as a slap on the wrist,”

“Baylor is trying to rid itself of anyone who has had an allegation made against him, true or not…The circumstances of Faulk’s departure from the team and school are unclear: Faulk provided an email from Baylor stating that his withdrawal had been finalized, but Faulk said he never asked to withdraw from the school. “No one’s given me a reason why I’ve been released,” Faulk said. “If I just leave, it will look like I’m guilty, and I didn’t do anything.”

Here is the truth that the Left will never acknowledge- the hook-up culture they celebrate and defend is the greatest petri dish for enabling rape and sexual assault imaginable. It does women no favors to tell them that the way they drink is irrelevant.

Using Yale’s own data, the complaint very plausibly alleges that Yale’s Title IX bureaucrats manipulated a female student. If the complaint can survive a motion to dismiss, the internal communications from Yale’s Title IX office could make for very revealing reading. The case has been assigned to a Bush I appointee…it was critical for Montague to avoid the district’s chief judge, Janet Hall, who wrote a pioneering decision that dramatically expanded the rights of accusers and provided some of the intellectual heft for the Obama administration’s efforts to eviscerate due process for accused students.

Another day, another dubious study shared without critical thought throughout a media desperate to prove rape and sexism are everywhere.

The Education and Justice Departments have already gone far to subvert the norm that students accused of sexual assault retain individual rights. Under new standards promulgated this spring, students can be punished before any disciplinary hearing has been held, and sometimes after anonymous allegations. In other words, students should have their academic careers or economic futures derailed before any adult has examined the evidence, assessed the credibility of the witnesses, or provided a fair and impartial inquiry… False accusations are not unknown, especially among immature or unstable young people.
