Accused! Tell the DED to End Campus Kangaroo Courts

    1. Petition by

      STOP ABUSIVE AND VIOLENT ENVIRONMENTS

The Dept. of Education’s Sex Assault Directive turns campus disciplinary panels into Kangaroo Courts that strip the accused of the right to legal counsel and potentially make every student guilty of sexual harassment.

Sweeping definitions of rape and sexual harassment, along with relaxed evidentiary standards, make false allegations incredibly easy to make! That makes it harder for real victims to be believed.

The American Association of University Professors and 12 other organizations -- and over 100 editorials -- have come out against this unconstitutional policy: http://www.saveservices.org/falsely-accused/sex-assault/accusing-u

HELP US STOP THE TYRANNY OF GOOD INTENTIONS. Call on Dept. of Ed Secretary Arne Duncan to remove its harmful Sexual Assault Directive and bring an end to campus Kangaroo Courts!

      I was accused of improprieties as a public school teacher which were payback for disciplining students or giving low grades. The power wielded in claiming sexual assault or similar accusations is one of severe gravity which, unfortunately, can be difficult to resist for those without scruples. Being accused in such a way is very traumatic as the stigma of guilt is almost impossible to disprove.
