At best she was a troubled girl that they gave little to no support and were slow to investigate her claims and at worst they implicitly slow played and covered up a sexual assault and engaged in a smear campaign against her to protect football players. Callous at best and criminal at worst.
It's bad any way it's sliced.
The players were never named to my knowledge as charges were never filed and that is important to note in all fairness.
Well put. I know this, but I was wondering if the poster I addressed did as well.
