"At Yale, the Collapse of Rhodes Scholar Candidacy" by Richard Perez-Pena - NYTimes.com

This story is pretty wild and I have a feeling this will not be the last we hear of it. Obviously people heard about the Yale QB who, as was widely reported, dropped his Rhodes Scholar candidacy to play in the Yale-Harvard Game.

Turns out his intentions may have not been so noble. Turns out he was accused of sexual assault, and the school may or may not or may or may not have known about it. It's all a little confusing.

There's a lot of questions raised here. Not the least of which, is why the girl, if she was assaulted by this guy, chose to lodge an "informal" complaint. Also, why aren't the cops allowed to get involved with on campus incidents a gain? How is that even possible? I want Benson and Stabler to go in there like motherfuckers and arrest this kid at the pep rally in front of the whole adoring school, maybe even mid-speech. Instead they got Dean Wormer and his merry band of Yale geeks A. not hashing out justice, but B. ruining lives anyway. Bottom line, if you get raped,for fucks sake, call the goddam cops.
