now of course people should be innocent until guilty but this is crazy .



The sad reality is that lady justice is not blind on campuses today. This unraveling of justice is shameful, it’s wholly un-American,” DeVos said during a speech at George Mason University in Virginia . “There must be a better way forward. Every survivor of sexual misconduct must be taken seriously. Every student accused of sexual misconduct must know that guilt is not predetermined.”


Advocates of sexual assault victims quickly criticized the announcement, arguing the change will result in a reversal of recent progress. “What seems procedural is a blunt attack on survivors of sexual assault,” Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, said in a statement. “It will discourage schools from taking steps to comply with the law—just at the moment when they are finally working to get it right.”

Jess Davidson, managing director of the group End Rape on Campus, was among those who protested outside the speech on Thursday. “I have had survivors calling me hysterically in tears worried that their government is going to go back on their civil rights,” she said in a phone interview. “They’re very scared.”
