    When I was in law school, one prof said, 'there's a lie in every trial.' But you rarely see anyone charged with perjury. THIS time, though, Penn State officials will have to answer for their testimony.

    I think I have said this before: Colleges try to keep campus crime out of the media. The one I taught in had a policy that forbade faculty or staff from going to police. By school policy, all crime had to be reported ONLY to the administration.

    I realize the perjury is a seriuos offense. But so is shoving this kind of dirt under the rug. I really wish this would bring out the kinds of 'policy' to which I refer and force colleges to report crimes to the police. In reality, a policy that does not allow faculty and staff to report a crime which has happened to them personally is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. I don't know how they get by with it. But we were told we didn't have tenure and we reported a student stalkng or threatening us to the police, our contracts would not be renewed at best, and we would be fired at worst. There's really something wrong with this picture.
