The Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA): a flawed response to an exaggerated problem

Posted in Sexual Abuse

Avoiceformalestudents.com 8/11/2014

"... The Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA), spearheaded by Senator Claire McCaskill and sponsored by numerous others, is the next well-intended but ultimately misguided piece of legislation purporting to address sexual assault on campus. Prior to the formulation of this bill, Senator McCaskill hosted three “roundtable” discussions on how to proceed, but only Feminists, and advocates and education administrators of similar mind (Title IX Coordinators, Deans of Students, and so forth) were allowed to take part. Absolutely no one who had demonstrated a concern for due process and the wrongly accused was allowed to sit on this “round table” discussion. ..."

College Sex Assaults Should Be Handled By The Police

Posted in Sexual Abuse

Washingtonpost.com 8/11/2014

"... None of the stories on the mishandling of assaults on campus has explained why an attack on a campus, whether private or public, is investigated, handled and adjudicated by the school’s personnel. Schools have a conflict of interest. It is in their best interest to convince prospective students and their parents that their campuses are safe. A complete and thorough investigation is called for by impartial local law enforcement; it has training and more experience in dealing with violence of this nature. Would a private business have the luxury of handling such an attack on its own? ..."
