The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

UNC-Chapel Hill is pro-rape. Ladies, get an education elsewhere.

Written By: Bob - Feb• 26•13

For as long as I can remember, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) has been the domain of radical, unthinking political correctness. A female student who was raped has come forward to talk about the ordeal. Coming forward made her rapist uncomfortable, and now the school is looking to expel her:

A college student now faces expulsion because school administrators say that she is ‘intimidating’ her alleged rapist by publicly discussing the sexual assault.

The victim, a female sophomore at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, went through the school-sanctioned order of filing a complaint against her fellow student and ex-boyfriend raped her.

Rather than remain anonymous about her sexual assault, she has publicly released her name- Landen Gambill- spoken in many news interviews, and even talked about her own experiences in front of a variety of media representatives at a public rally pushing for the school to increase their support for victims.

In none of those instances has she named her alleged attacker.

The latest drama comes now that a school administrator told Ms Gambill said that she may have violated the school’s honor code and could be expelled herself rather than the alleged rapist.

The threat of expulsion came after she joined a group of 64 other students and teachers that filed a legal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, saying that UNC administrators pressured them to underreport cases of sexual assault on campus.

The UNC system has a strange idea of an “honor code.” My idea of an honor code is that the administrators would have public flogged the bastard who raped Ms Gambill to within an inch of his life at mid-court in the Dean Dome during halftime of a men’s basketball game as a warning to others, his bloody body dragged off the court as his sobs echoed in the rafters.

I guess I’m kind of old school like that.

As a father of daughters, I will never allow my children to attend UNC-Chapel Hill, the rapist’s refuge of the University of North Carolina system.

    While not defending UNC, did Landen Gambill file charges against the man? Allegations are meaningless. If he did the deed, file charges. What she seems to be doing is tarring him in public and not giving him a chance to defend himself.

    • Bob says:

      She never tarred anyone. She related the experience as a warning to others, and never said who he was.

      • BillC says:

        Every one of her friends know who her ex boyfriend is. She is trrying him in the court of public opinion. He has zero chance to defend himself.

        I love your blog and agree with most of your posts, but Bob, you KNOW better.

        I’m not a betting man, but I’d wager a month salary that if you went to that campus, and asked around to almost any generic student, and asked who Ms. Gambill’s rapist was they’d be able to not only tell you his name, but which dorm he lived in (or off campus), his physical description, and a whole slew of other stuff about the man.

        So – yes, she is tarring him

      • Swati says:

        I resent whomever wrote that comment, as a student who attends this university and a close friend of a few people who have filed the suit, I still do not know who her rapist is.

        She filed with honor court and was told that a criminal trial and a unc trial can not take place at the same time.

        Here are a few other things to clear it up.

        Also, way to victim-blame commenters. Check yourselves.

        Actually, I am a friend of Landen’s and I don’t know her attacker. I don’t know his name, year, anything. Neither do most people. The only people that do are her family and a few (VERY few) of her closest friends.

    What’s really is bad is that UNC is only a microcosm of education in general in our country today, you could say only higher education but where are the teachers coming from that are indoctrinating our children in our government run public education system, it is a wonder that we have as many people as we have today that know the truth and understand the lies, if we give them another generation or two; methinks it will be all over and beyond saving.

    But this is what we have going for us; the left is so intent on destroying what was once America; the home of the free that they can’t control themselves nor pace themselves to do it right, they are over reaching to the point that a collapse is imminent.

    Most people will do anything and everything to avoid conflict but when you have nothing else left to lose; our economy is shot, our constitution is worthless, your freedom is only as to what the all knowing & all powerful government allows; well that’s a horse of a different color.

    Death before slavery!

    I have to agree, if charges were not filed and evidence gathered, allegations are meaningless.

    However if proven true, the guy involved should limp and consider doing nails at a neighborhood boutique for the rest of his life.

    And the word that is being overlooked here is “alleged”.
    He should be “innocent until proven guilty” and not subject to the “discomfort” (both psychological and quite possibly physical) that will result from this allegation.
    While she has not named the alleged rapist she’s said he was an ex-boyfriend so it probably doesn’t take university level intelligence to work out who he is.

    She should press charges or shut up. This should be tried in the courts, not the media.

    • figment says:

      >She should press charges or shut up. This should be tried in the courts, not the media.

      criminal cases are charged by the DA, not victims.
      The DA decides it’s not win-able, no case.

      • Survival Skvez says:

        So the DA thinks there is insufficient evidence to bring to trial and the school wants her to shut up.
        Bob, perhaps you’re on the wrong side of this one.

    I’m of two minds on this – I have seen legitimate rape victims who were scarred for life, but I have also seen the kangaroo “court” system most schools have implemented in regards to any allegation of sexual misconduct, sexual harrasment, or sexual assault.

    ***If he’s guilty:***

    Miss Gambill has to realize that if she makes these allegations without filing charges then she’s engaging in character assassination of the first order. There is just about nothing more socially, legally, and economically lethal than being accused of being either a rapist or a child molestor. If he’s guilty: GOOD! But, Miss Gambill has to realize that in order to take the man (a term I use loosely in the case of a sexual predator) down she needs to use the right channels. Simply going around and calling him a rapist isn’t something you can (nor should be able to do) willy nilly. And while she has not named him in the press “officially” I can say with a certainty that everyone on campus well knows his name.

    Miss Gambill has every right to make whatever choice she is most comfortable with – she’s the victim. If she wants to put this behind her, that’s her right. As a unit Victim’s Advocate in the Army I would strongly counsel the victim (I hate that word and prefer survivor) to step forward. If later she hears that he has raped ANOTHER woman it will haunt her. Also I would counsel stepping forward with formal charges because it’s been shown that the anger, the feelings of helplessness, resentment, unfulfilled injustice, and pure rage will affect her for years (maybe decades) to come.

    @#@#@#@##@#@@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@

    ***If He’s innocent: ***

    If the man is innocent then what Miss Gambill is doing is called violence by proxy. Stereotypically women commit their violence differently than men. While, stereotypically men commit violence in a direct and directly violent manner, women, (again) stereotypically, commit their violence by proxy. Proxy of the parents (“Mom, Jimmy hit me – punish him”), proxy of the state (“He hit me – lock him up”), or proxy of authority (to boss or school offical: “he hit me – fire him/ expell him”).

    While we educate about how / why (mostly) men commit sexual assault, we, in our PC Society, do not discuss female violence by proxy. It’s minimized, marginalized, and dismissed as “not that serious” – to which I say bullsh!t.

    If Pablo the drug czar sends Ivan to beat you, Pablo, is the initiator of, and is equally responsible for any damage done to you. If Jane yells fire in a crowded theatre and John gets trampled, we know that Jane is held responsible for the damage done to John. Same goes for violence by proxy done with a false allegation.

    If you are false accused of rape or child molestation – you become a social, economic, academic, and political second hand citizen *FOR LIFE*.

    A person who commits this crime needs to be locked up for an equal amount of time a rapist would be locked up – it’s called a deterrent.

    Proof: Crystal Mangum, the Duke Lacross false accuser had been using false allegations and the victim card for years – and since no one was willing to prosecute her she escalated and kept using the same tried and true method.

    She is currently facing murder charges for stabbing her boyfriend. Had she been imprisoned in 2006, that man may be alive today.

    @#@#@#@#@#@#@@#@#@#@#

    I have no idea who is telling the truth. I wrote longer on the false allegation portion because while we have come a long way in educating the public about sexual assault (and still have a ways to go), we rarely have educated the populace about false allegations. Largely when I speak of it I get silly and ill-informed stereotypes and ideas based on ignorance.

    In the same way we now know that most sexual assualts are not committed by “the man in the bushes” – in the area of false allegations such damaging and false stereotypes still are held as truth when it comes to false allegations.

    I hope I have added to the discussion.

    If she isn’t naming the guy she claims raped her, or giving any hints as to his identity, then what exactly is she doing wrong?

  8. MunDane says:

    Why are there no police involved? Something smells fishy…

    Oh, is that you, Sandra?

  9. fubar says:

    what does this mean?

    “The victim, a female sophomore at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, went through the school-sanctioned order of filing a complaint against her fellow student and ex-boyfriend raped her.”.

    SO was this HER fault the police were not involved? or the college’s? (Sandusky comes to mind) Were they involved at all?

    Rape is a felony. Rape should be reported to the police first, college maybe second.
    Why are college administrators being INFORMED of criminal offenses and given responsibility of informing proper authorities as if laws do not apply to campus property or campus personnel or students?

    “filing a complaint” what is the accused going to get a sternly worded letter? this is why we have a judicial system, to see Justice.
