    a higher standard of evidence because of their serious implications and consequences.

    A university tribunal, acting in a function similar to a civil court in that it is imposing institutional civil penalties,

    Campus SaVE does not require that colleges and universities impose institutional civil penalties. The implications and consequences may be of the college’s or university’s own [...]

    Colleges do not now, and will not under Campus SaVE, have a right to function as civil courts.

    the standard that civil courts were actually forced not to follow in Boyd v. US.

    Campus SaVE will not require colleges to follow a standard that Boyd v. US decided against.

    Then why does the act mandate the “preponderance of evidence” standard?

    To require that college campuses respond to reports of sexual violence in a responsible manner.

    This is not to say colleges ought not have honor codes, but these honor codes should be created to cover areas not covered by criminal and civil courts.

    Campus SaVE does not require that colleges pursue punitive measures. Many colleges currently carry out punitive measures of their own selection.

    Colleges should not function as, nor are they equipped to function as, civil courts

    Colleges do not now, and will not under Campus SaVE, function as civil courts.

    they should not be pursuing punitive measures in these regards.

    The preponderance of evidence standard may be used in a civil court of law where the violation at hand is tantamount to a criminal action. A civil court of law may not levy criminal charges, effectively or ineffectively. A college campus, now and after the passing of the campus SaVE act may not levy criminal [...]

    “cry rape” … which is an inappropriate way to describe … the accusation of a criminal act

    cry means to shout out. Shouting out a witnessed crime is appropriate social behavior.

    What compelling reason does a college have to use the preponderance standard in cases where a violation is tantamount to a criminal action?

    A civil court of law may use a preponderance standard in cases where a violation is tantamount to a criminal action. A college, like a civil court of law, is not a criminal [...]

    it would be best to allow the criminal justice system to handle criminal acts

    The criminal justice system is always allowed to handle criminal acts.

    and then impose additional institutional penalties based on the findings of the criminal justice system.

    What you have just described is the civil claims court system. Victims of crime may seek civil [...]

    “colleges” are not a court of law.

    Facebook is still a private company. I wouldn’t place blame for not taking this down on anyone but Mark Zuckerberg.

    If I tell my male friends that men/masculinity are to blame for rape

    Your statement is not feminist, it is sexist.

    Rapists are to blame for rape.

    To “cry rape” is not synonymous with “false rape accusation.”

    To report a rape is no lark.

    Reports of criminal actions made to institutes of higher education are not “criminal charges.”

  • Logic commented on the blog post Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act earns more sponsors   3 years ago · View

    Reports of criminal actions made to institutes of higher education are not “criminal charges.” The Higher Education Act of 1965 will be amended to include:

    (v) Procedures for institutional disciplinary action in cases of an alleged incident of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, which shall include a clear statement that– (I) such proceedings [...]

    Most sexual assaults are not reported. Sexual assaults reported to campus security are rarely reported to the police. Colleges are left to investigate and respond according to their own, often lenient or ill-defined, standards. Victims of unreported sexual assault rarely receive appropriate post-trauma care. The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act would require that college campuses respond to [...]
