I talked to a policeman at a campus visit to UNC-Charlotte in July. He was proud of talking a young woman OUT OF pressing charges of sexual assault. He said the police spoke with both students to reinforce that the consequences for the undergraduate and alleged attacker are dire. The woman decided she wasn’t absolutely sure anymore. The policeman was also proud of few if any cases prosecuted – not the same as assaults not happening. I was appalled. These sexual assaults are happening whether or not they are prosecuted.
Join us to screen and discuss “The Hunting Ground” at NC State University on August 8th. Learn what the policeman didn’t understand about sexual assaults on campus. Learn how to prepare yourself/your child/your niece/your grandchild.
Also consider a self defense class for you and yours. I am.
