  1. This doesn’t seem to make any sense. A student was “sexually assaulted” in broad daylight at 1 P.M. on Thursday while classes were in session between Ellington and the U.C. (well populated areas). She waited until well into the next morning around 3 A.M. to notify police. Most likely, someone said something to her or came onto her and being an immature individual–she blew things out of proportion. This is a waste of time and resources requiring the police to investigate.

    • And comments like these are the reason why sexual assault goes underreported. When someone tries to report a crime like this and is met with “This is a lie and you are immature,” all their hesitations that caused them to wait from 1 p.m. to 3 a.m. come to life.
