I'm just checking for opinions here. I recently read about a man who was expelled from Washington and Lee University because he was accused of raping a girl (not proven) and now he is suing the University because of it.
I read a lot of commentary about the case on reddit, but of course, the commentary is following typical reddit fashion and pulling out the "this is why there needs to be a way to stop false accusations" focus.
But does anyone know anything about this case? Reading the article I'm inclined to believe the guy here (it seems like the girl simply got jealous of him moving on from her, and then said that she had been raped even though she had originally consented to sex).
Still, I don't like to blindly believe these things and the majority seems to be doing so....anyone else have any thoughts about the case?
Either way, the main takeaway for me here is that schools should not be playing a part in deciding the guilt of someone in cases like this. They should play a role in taking action IF the person is proven guilty, and also taking action to prevent sexual assault, but they should not responsible for the trial. We've seen too many times how that can go badly.
