    Can the college security guards charge someone with a crime? Shouldn’t the SMSO investigate this??

    Not reporting sexual assaults minimizes the severity of these crimes. Outside third-party involvement ensures non-biased inquiries. I hope the victim heals, and I hope the attacker is identified.

    Gee early hours in the same room and they did not know each other. Not reported to the police and happened over a week ago. Bill Cosby is well known and not able to see well enough to escape on his own so we can rule that out. One collection of people fit that collection of events that the majority of people would not find themselves in. After that brilliant comment about the flag abuse I am sure this won’t be handled any better. By the way was the flag left up over night without a light or locks on the halyard lines? If so then shame on the USPS.

    Victim and suspect do not know each other, yet at the end of the column it states no ongoing threat to the community….sounds fishy to me.

    Please tell me how St.Mary’s College thinks that it is acceptable to have 2 incidents that are so similar and yet not ask for police intervention or take measures to prevent this from happening. This is really ridiculous.

      The school will do nothing. The board and most of the staff are pretentious idiots.
