Duke Invites Lacrosse Players Back To Campus

The thing is, I'm sure they'd rather go to any other school.

The problem is that -- well, universities are so PC-crazy that I'm guessing they don't want the students.

Oh, they all know they're innocent as lambs. But still, they've been accused by a black woman of rape, and, innocent or not, they just don't want those sorts of people around.

I wonder if the invite comes with a required waiver of lawsuit. I bet it does. In which case they should tell them to go fuck themselves.

"As circumstances have evolved in this extraordinary case, we have attempted to balance recognition of the gravity of legal charges with the presumption of your innocence," Larry Moneta, Duke's vice president for student affairs said in a letter to Seligmann dated Tuesday.

"Now with the approach of a new term, we believe that circumstances warrant that we strike this balance differently. At this point, continued extension of the administrative leave would do unwarranted harm to your educational progress."

Duke President Richard Brodhead issued a statement Wednesday saying: "We have decided that the right and fair thing to do is to welcome back Reade Seligmann and Collin Finnerty to resume their studies at Duke for the spring semester. Although the students still face serious charges and larger issues require Duke's collective attention, the circumstances in this case have changed substantially, and it is appropriate that the students have an opportunity to continue their education."

Finnerty's attorney, Wade Smith, said his client was invited back at Duke for the spring semester but would not say for sure whether he would accept the offer.

Wbat "larger issues"? The "larger issue" of being the victim of a shakedown-artist whore, who probably just lied about rape to get off of a drunk and disorderly charge?

Thanks to Slublog.

Correction: One of the students, at least, has been attending Hofstra. Which is good and all, but few would mistake Hofstra for a top-thirty college like Duke.
