The University of Virginia should lift its suspension of fraternity and sorority activities now that Rolling Stone has acknowledged mistakes in its reporting of an alleged gang rape on campus, three organizations said in a statement.Bonus points for the recognition that a "rush to judgment on campus all too often turns out to be wrong, especially when applied at the organizational level." This can only be interpreted as a veiled reference to the seemingly never ending progression of campus "hate crimes" which inevitably turn out to be "hoax crimes."
The Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee, the National Panhellenic Conference and the North-American Interfraternity Conference also said the university should apologize for a "rush to judgment" that damaged the reputation of Greek organizations and students...
"We believe universities must demonstrate more respect for the fundamental rights to due process and freedom of association for students and student organizations when allegations of misconduct are lodged," they said. "A rush to judgment on campus all too often turns out to be wrong, especially when applied at the organizational level."
