Accusing U.

 

 Accusing U.

American colleges are in the midst of a civil rights crisis that is undermining fundamental notions of fairness and justice. As Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, explains:

It took our civilization a few thousand years…to put the presumption of innocence and the right to face one’s accusers at the center of the proceedings. It has taken the higher-education establishment and the White House Task Force just a few months to figure out that all that fuss was unnecessary.

Rape StatisticsRapes have fallen dramatically in recent decades — see graph. Despite this fact, the White House claims that “one-in-five” college women are victims of sexual assault — a statistic that was shown to be wrong by a Department of Justice report. Still, campus activists are using the one-in-five number to promote the far-fetched notion that we live in a “rape culture.”

To address the problem of campus sexual assault, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments is proposing enactment of the Safety of Our Students (SOS) Act. The need for the SOS Act is revealed by a growing number of lawsuits and over 500 commentaries published in 2014 (and nearly 300 editorials published 2011 – 2013). These articles highlight widespread doubts whether rape victims are well served by campus sex panels, about the truthfulness of the one-in-five claim, regarding the removal of due process rights from the accused, and the absurdity of Affirmative Consent proposals:
