Oughta Be A Law
This is what the supposed law requires. This is not what happens. So now we have this knee and jerk off response to do what should have been done in the first place - respect the individual coming to you with this and in turn investigate all the parties involved. ALL OF THEM.
Once again we have what appears to be excessive over legislation to enforce laws and matters that were on the books and were of course ignored. Schools, public, private, K-12 or post secondary are not law enforcement and yet when an assault of any kind happens you are to contact the Administration of the school first. Well given that Cops are fuckwits of high order I can understand this sort of, kind of, not really. Maybe if they were busy doing the job they should be doing, investigating real crimes or alleged ones they might need to invent them.
Funny if a Teacher or Professor assaulted a kid there would be K-9 dogs issued, SWAT teams and no knock warrants. The evening news would be abuzz with the Teacher pervert.
As we already know with Sandusky, the Catholic Priests and apparently the entire BBC line up of television personalities in the 70s-80s, they all got a flying pass, a raise, a transfer with a wink-wink nod-nod that daddy might be a touch of the perv. Clearly that touch was more than pervvy.
And so when I read the below article I go well how is this going to change or help anyone. I have no idea.
Then I read in the New York Times about an informant who was actually recruited to ultimately rat on his classmates misconduct with regards to the Air Force Academy. The investigator who created this program and his recruit were suitably punished, the investigator is cleaning offices, the standard demotion and the kid kicked out. The kid who did rape was punished - AFTER football season. Priorities people priorities.
But the whole idea of recruiting and in turn "tattling" on those whom you are a part seems well second grade and tragic. How about teaching, as it is a military academy, civics. In that curriculum you could discuss gender issues, race issues, economics and other matters that teach young minds that respecting others means not harming people. Gosh how revelatory!
