Sexual assaults should be handled by the criminal justice system and not the Education Department
Sexual assaults are a crime and not a Title IX problem. By pushing educational institutions into policing sexual misconduct the Obama administration allowed kangaroo courts and Star Chamber proceedings to take over and in the process denied due process to the accused and to the alleged victim. In short, the education system is ill-equipped to deal with the situation and should be turning these cases over to the local district attorney.
The two selections for high-profile posts, both lawyers, have legal records on sexual assault that have alarmed some advocates.
