    Man, I just realized how old Spike Lee is now.

    On campus rape, what I find amazing is, how many people don’t realize “let them handle it internally” is a fancy way of saying “don’t do anything”. It’s literally no different than when the Church handles child molestation cases internally.

    The story about swatting is quite detailed and really depressing. It took a lot of work to achieve very little. He’ll be out again in a few months and a person like that isn’t likely to change.

    The best news here is that next time he does it he won’t be a minor. Maybe then it’ll be easier to stop him.

      Yeah, that was a rough article to read, especially about how all the police departments had no clue what SWATing was while they happened all around.

        You’d think that after so many incidents of it happening, it would be covered pretty thoroughly in training. You’d think so, anyway.
