DOJ Report On Assaults At University Of Montana

Share

Department of Justice attorneys sang the University of Montana’s praises Thursday for its efforts to address problems surrounding sexual assault, even as DOJ documents painted a damning picture of how assault cases involving UM students all too often were handled.

Women at UM who reported being sexually assaulted or harassed “were unfairly belittled, disbelieved or blamed for speaking up about what had been done to them,” Roy L. Austin Jr., deputy assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, said Thursday.

There was a failure to respond to reports of sexual assault and that its policies and training related to sexual assault response are insufficient and, until recently, nonexistent.”

Among the findings listed in the letter:
• Campus police officers appeared unaware of all the resources available to victims of sexual assault, failing “to consistently offer women information about these resources.”

Women everywhere are faced with the possibility of sexual assaults at any time, any place. You would think on a college campus that is safer. Wrong! College campuses present nearly a 30% chance of a young woman being sexually assaulted in her time at school

The best way that she can avoid that is to get a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or a stun gun. We actually recommend pepper sprays, especially ones that are on a KEYCHAIN because they will be with you all the time.

In 2010, students at Sacramento State could find media releases from the Sacramento State Police Department warning students about sexual assaults that had happened on campus.

You can read the whole story HERE.

“As defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, sexual assault and abuse can be verbal, visual or anything that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or attention.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control conducted a survey with 5,000 students at more than 100 college campuses, and found out of those women surveyed, 20 percent had been forced to submit to sexual intercourse against their will.”

That number may actually be low. Several studies show that as many as 25% have been sexually assaulted. The scary part is that only one out of every 10 assaults ever gets reported.

This is a story out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, where local TV station KOAA did a story about people roaming around neighborhoods dressed as security guards, Comcast repairmen and even utility workers.

They do so to perpetrate a scam on homeowners and gain entry into their homes. The idea has been around for a long time but it seems to be gaining in popularity, especially with senior citizens who are more naïve.

What To Watch Out For

I learned this in a neighborhood watch meeting but I’ve heard it before. Never, never let anybody into your house unless you know who they are and why they are there. Just because someone is wearing a Comcast label on his shirt, doesn’t necessarily mean he works for Comcast. A man dressed as a security guard may be nothing more than a common criminal trying to rip you off.

Always ask for identification. If there is any doubt, call the company and asked for verification. Be especially suspicious of people who show up unannounced without an appointment.

No matter what your sexual orientation is the best way to defend yourself against any kind of an assault is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or pepper spray.

That is the opening paragraph in an article about sexual assaults on Egyptian women.
