Colleges should not have their own criminal justice system

NY Times:

A Majority Ruled It Rape. That Isn’t Enough at Stanford.

Stanford has an uncommonly high bar for sexual assault cases, so a football player was never punished despite two panels ruling in favor of the accuser.
Allegations of criminal acts should be referred to the local district attorney for prosecution.  They would also give the accused a better chance of getting a constitutional due process that is being denied on many campuses where these cases resemble a Star Chamber proceeding.

Using Title IX as a cudgel to force schools to become sex cops is a mistake and that portion of the law needs to be repealed.  To be fair to the alleged victims and the accused, the matter needs to be in the hands of a real prosecutor.
