University of Virginia: “The Rape School”?

Update: Lending credence to charges of a systemic problem — although "rape and murder laboratory aimed at young women" seems extreme — UVA chose a former member of the fraternity accused of gang rape as its "independent counsel" to investigate this matter last night. The Virginia Attorney General announced today that a different counsel will in fact be chosen. Amazing, and a further reminder — if any was needed after Penn State — that universities require oversight. - promoted by Bob_Neer
