Justin Dillon and Matt Kaiser write in The Washington Post:
University discipline is often unreliable; we don’t mean to suggest that the conclusions the school reached were correct. But what’s described in that report — whether or not it happened — is deeply troubling.
The details of what happened cannot be printed here. But what appears to have started out as a consensual encounter, and was found to be so by Minnesota’s Title IX office, eventually degenerated into something far worse. We will leave it to others to discuss whether what happened in this case is yet another example of the influence of porn on the behavior of young men. But what these students are alleged to have done is horrible.
Given how much media attention this case has received, that could be very bad for due process on campus.
