What we shouldn't learn from the Duke lacrosse hoax
Duke should be leading the way in a national reassessment of student life, campus ethics, entitlement and privilege, academic freedom, gender relations, underage alcohol use, exposure to liability for failure to provide a safe environment, and the role of over-involved parents.
Finally, the three exonerated young men need to learn from this episode. They have had a sobering look inside the criminal justice system, which should give them sympathy for the many who are unfairly accused.
"national reassessment of student life" - I call for a national reassessment of drunken, stoned stripper life
"campus ethics" - I think prosecutorial ethics are a bit of a pressing lesson
"entitlement and privilege" - maybe they 'bought' justice, but they shouldn't have had to. It is the duty of the JUSTICE system to provide it freely.
"academic freedom" - the right to accuse innocent students of grievous crimes doth not fall under the banner of academic freedom. The Duke 88 be damned.
"gender relations" - drunken and emotionally unstable strippers should do as little relatin as possible
"underage alcohol use" - yawn
"exposure to liability for failure to provide a safe environment, and the role of over-involved parents" - these two are so incoherent and ridiculous - I'll just relegate them to the 'wtf' category
"sympathy for the many who are unfairly accused" - shouldn't this lesson be directed towards the lying accusers and their enablers in the JUSTICE system?
