      from Huffington Post
      "In a statement last week, OSU said the "student in question was in attendance at Ohio State only through Dec. 12," the last day of the university's fall semester final examinations. OSU's official Twitter account on Monday tweeted "Michael Nodianos is no longer a student at The Ohio State University."

      The Huffington Post sought to clarify whether Nodianos left on his own accord or if he was expelled. OSU spokesperson Gayle Saunders would only comment that "the individual is no longer a student at The Ohio State University. As it relates to your specific question, the university is not at liberty to comment due to Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations."

      According to the Daily Beast it was Michael Nodianos who dropped out.

      Please keep this going as OSU has to repeal his scholarship as Michael clearly does not live up to OSU "Code of Conduct"

      Forward to friends, family and so OSU knows how you feel.

      Rape and gang rapes are heinous men's crimes and must be punished with the maximum penalty!

      One case of many cases:

      Woman begs for captors to kill her in rape video causing outrage in Nigeria

      Woman cries several times, assailants just laugh

      Activists claim case highlights under-reported epidemic!

      The victim was a victim of FGM too, so the rape was a cruel torture!

      A woman who has been repeatedly raped begs her captors to kill her in a shocking video that has sparked outrage in Nigeria.

      The assailants take turns to sexually abuse her in a university dormitory after promising to take her home. Each time she tries to stand up, they push her back down.

      Local authorities have dismissed the 10-minute video, which first surfaced on the internet.

      Victim: The gang rape of this woman in Nigeria was captured on video by the perpetrators who later posted it on the internet

      But Nigeria's youth minister is calling for police to prosecute the men. Some Internet users disturbed by it are even offering rewards for information.

      Activists in Nigeria say the video exposes an under-reported epidemic of rape in Africa's most populous nation, and they plan to march in the coming days to draw attention to the case.

      'The perpetrators go further to record it and circulate it. It shows for me that they're daring society to take action on it,' said Josephine Effah-Chukwuma, the executive director of a Nigerian women's rights group called Project Alert.

      'It shows that there's a high level of impunity.'

      The video had circulated for weeks around the campus of Abia State University near Nigeria's southern oil-rich delta before being posted on the Internet.

      It appears to take place in a single-room dormitory or student hostel.

      The men taking turns raping the woman who repeatedly asks to go home. 'Please just kill me,' the woman cries several times. The men laugh.

      Nigeria's Youth Minister Bolaji Abdullahi has issued a statement calling for the university and police to arrest and prosecute the men shown in the video, as well as offering assistance to the woman.

      'The attitude of these men, if indeed they are young Nigerians, does not represent the character and nature of the Nigerian youth,' the minister said.

      However, the university and state government officials have denied the video's authenticity and that it took place near or on school grounds, Effah-Chukwuma said.

      Abia state police spokesman Geoffrey Ogbonna said that no one reported the rape to university officials or to any of the state's police precincts.

      He said he searched for the video on the Internet only after hearing about it.

      'From the look of things, I don't think such a thing happened,' Ogbonna said. 'All I know is that state command is not aware of such an incident.'

      Rape is rarely reported to authorities in Nigeria — there were only 1,952 cases in 2009, according to federal police statistics posted on a website called Nigeria Police Watch.

      However, a 2006 Amnesty International report said those numbers are believed to 'be sporadic, piecemeal and inconsistent' in a nation of 150 million people.

      Nigeria's federal police force also remains largely incapable of investigating crimes, as its officers routinely harass motorists for bribes at checkpoints and arrest citizens randomly to collect so-called "bail money."

      Activists say they fear for the woman shown being attacked in the video, who now may be shunned by those who can identify her face.

      'Why should I come out and speak of my victimization when I'm going to receive secondary victimisation?' Effah-Chukwuma asked.

      'The whole society blames (the victim).'

      Rape is no fun for the victim, which is blamed in every country of the world but the fun of the rapists, because they can unpunished torture, rape and kill women, girls and childs. Thats a shame for all men worldwide!

      People like this have no rights and no place in our society. He gave up his rights when he, scoffingly, allowed the rights of another to be taken away.

      Because we need to end rape culture!

      Because he's a scum bucket. He knew a rape happened, didn't stop it or report it. All whilst wearing a University shirt. Unless all your students are rapists, probably a good point to expel this creep.
