We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Why would any on-campus crime be handled any differently than an off-campus crime? Colleges today find themselves in a funny spot. Are they in loco parentis, or not? Do they enforce morals, or not? Do they have codes of behavior, or not? They certainly seem to have absurd speech codes. In any event, I would take them out of the criminal justice business.
Colleges are in a lose-lose situation. From Washington they get more and more regulation under Title IX. DoED and DOJ won't miss any opportunity to run anything and everything.
Activists of every persuasion arrive with lawyers after the smallest skirmish. Campus groups regard free speech is negotiable at best while trying to permit only their own. Some believe in physical attacks.
Accused or punished students can sue the colleges for denial of due process yet due process is nearly impossible to even define, let alone to conduct, w/o mistakes.
And local law enforcement itself can charge university administrators with obstruction or negligence when crimes are not promptly reported or evidence is lost or tainted.
Insummary: Faculty and administrators have almost all agreed on what they wanted for a half-century. Now they are getting it 'good and hard' as Mencken would phrase it. Worse is to come.
They may as well relax, open their legs, and dream of unicorns and butterflys and pretty clouds.
