Last month, I posted about Laura Dickinson, an Eastern Michigan University student whose rape and murder were covered up by the school to protect their reputation. Even her own family buried her thinking she had died of natural causes, and her fellow classmates had no idea that there was a rapist and murderer on campus.
Well, via Kathy at Birmingham Blues, I see that the president of Eastern Michigan University has been fired after an independent law firm investigation and a U.S. Department of Education report both found that the public university “violated the federal Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to disclose campus security information.”
But erstwhile EMU President John Fallon isn’t sorry; he’s disappointed: “As a citizen, I am disappointed in this hastily called meeting, without any opportunity to be present or to respond. I have a story to tell and intend to tell it.”
As Kathy says, “Dude, if you can come up with a justification for this, I’d sure like to hear it. It better involve having your brain snatched by pod people.” Profoundly misogynist and criminally apathetic pod people, at that.
