you'd better pass this on; seems Obama & Co. and a lot of universities really don't like that 'innocent until proven guilty' thing, at least when a man is accused by a woman.
School officials are also encouraged to substitute a “single
investigator” model for a hearing process, which seems a prescription
for injustice. As the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
points out, pursuant to this model, “a sole administrator would be
empowered to serve as detective, judge and jury, affording the accused
no chance to challenge his or her accuser’s testimony.”
These “reforms” exacerbate an already dangerously unreliable approach to
evaluating charges of assault. In 2011, the Department of Education
requiring colleges and universities to employ a minimal “preponderance
of evidence” standard in cases involving allegations of harassment or
violence. This is the lowest possible standard of proof, which merely
requires discerning a 50.01 percent chance that a charge is more likely
than not to be true. It facilitates findings of guilt, which will be
merited in some cases, and not others. For students wrongly accused, the
consequences of a guilty finding can be as dire as a not guilty finding
for students actually victimized.
More here; add this to the reasons some guys don't want to go to college.
This sounds good:
As gun-control proponents work to expand background checks on private
sales of firearms, a House member angling for the Senate has introduced
an expansion of excluded weapons to be classified as antique firearms.
Rep. Bill Cassidy’s (R-La.) bill would strike the year 1898 from U.S.
Code and instead make the cutoff for an antique firearm 1913.
