    Crying Rape - Mike Adams - Townhall Conservative

    Wow. Should college students be afforded the same due process as other citizens? This is unbelievable.

    I always think it's amusing-cum-instructive to see liberal values clashing with each other: due process vs. women's rights.

    What does this apply to? After reading the article it sounds as though this has to do with some sort of school-run courts and not any actual legal ramifications.

    It doesn't make this good, I just want to be clear on what's at play.

    Good question. I know campus police investigate burglaries and whatnot, but I would think that the real police and the real courts would deal with something as serious as rape. I'm not sure but I'm guessing this standard will be used for expulsion, not necessarily prosecution. I'll dig a little deeper later on.

    Does anyone know if they have criminal trials at schools?

    'Women's rights' don't exist. There is no such thing.

    What it would probably apply to is enrollment in the university. This will mean they can expel students who are accused of sexual assualt even if the charges are dropped.
