Bernie Sanders: The Police Should Handle Campus Rape Cases, Not Schools

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) broke with his party on Monday, when he said that police departments, not campus tribunals, should be the ones who deal with sexual assault allegations.

From The Hill:

"Rape and assault is rape or assault whether it takes place on a campus or a dark street," he said Monday at the Black and Brown Presidential Forum in Iowa.

"If a student rapes another student it has got to be understood as a very serious crime, it has to get outside of the school and have a police investigation and that has to take place."

He added that too many schools are treating it as a "student issue" instead of referring accusations to law enforcement, and added that victims shouldn't have to be in classes with their rapists.

Sanders is exactly right on this issue. Rape is a serious crime, not a petty student offense, and rape should be treated as a serious crime by people who are trained to investigate these types of crimes.

I guess it's true that broken clocks can be right twice a day.
