I appreciate you bringing that additional side of the story to look at. Indeed, there are always two sides to a story and sometimes more than that.
That's absolutely true when a case is off to the wilds of a courtroom as this one is.
It strikes me as patently absurd and outrageous though that, as the court filing indicates, they did have a history of problems at this location Now
in the case of the victim in this case, to say she was treated poorly and with about as much compassion as a roach on a clean floor might be
Doe says the resident assistant at her dorm, a Wesleyan employee, was notified about her rape on Oct. 31, 2011, but the RA "did not notify the
police, campus safety, or the administration."
Because the student health services office was closed on Sunday, Oct. 31, Doe says, she did not receive medical attention until Monday. "When she
was finally able to seek treatment and report the rape, Wesleyan advised that she could go to the hospital but offered neither transportation nor
accompaniment," the complaint states. "Wesleyan did not offer any services or other academic help to Jane Doe, not advising or even allowing her to
lessen her course load or withdraw from classes without penalty."
It goes on and it got worse here...
The complaint continues: "After these rapes, Wesleyan again warned the campus community about the risks of attending events at Beta house, and
prohibited students from living at Beta House or using it for social and academic events. This spurred campus-wide 'Free Beta' protests and rallies
organized by members of Beta, including Beta House residents. Through no fault of her own, Jane Doe's identity had become known to certain Beta and Mu
As much as I really try and see both sides of the story, the court side of this makes clear the administration of the school saw such a problem
existing at this place to not just warn the Student Body once...but officially send out warnings on TWO different occasions.
It seems to me....if Universities and Schools in general stopped trying so hard to manage everything "in-house" and cover their precious stats by
avoiding Law Enforcement on almost ANYTHING they can avoid it for....problems like this would have a police solution far sooner than this civil case
is coming to do something about it.
As a side note, I saw evil crap like this happen at Clearfield Job Corps center too. The victims were damn sure real and among my friends. The
federally run center was not "open" to the Jurisdiction of local law enforcement unless invited..and only as LONG as invited to remain. They didn't
GET invited for a petty little thing like forcible rape of a teenager..as I saw. So, it touches a pretty raw nerve to hear about this being done in
other settings with even less rationale for it.
