Today's USC Lesson: Alleviation By Multiplication

The Upper St. Clair School District has released a letter designed to "alleviate some of the concerns parents might have" with respect to an alleged rape in an alleged school stairwell (whose alleged victim claims she was being used as "bait" by an alleged school principal the second time she was raped, and whose alleged perpetrator has pled guilty).

The district's explanation is described as an attempt to "somewhat respond to the reports" of the incident, in which another student alleges she was raped.

The district also indicated it believes the lawsuit filed by the "bait" victim should be dismissed . . . as should the lawsuit filed with respect to a third (and related) rape alleged to have occurred on school property.

(The district apparently is not offering current comment concerning a fourth student's allegation that she was sexually assaulted in a school hallway.)

The Upper St. Clair School District -- which wants everyone to understand that it ""remains committed, first and foremost, to the safety and well-being of its students" -- appears to have an exceptional amount of alleviating to do.

This is hard to believe but you do provide the backup on it so what in hell is going on in Upper Saint Clair???? Kinda hope not true a principle would use a young girl for bait and even so, how could you let her out of your sight for ONE SECOND?? Are the school board who wanted honors classes tossed out the same ones working on keeping the lid on four rapes??

I know, lotsa question marks

Response from the school board:
"There are no rapes here. Rapes are a problem only in dirty city schools, just like drugs, which we also don't have in our homogenized suburban utopia"

Here's my take on this:
The boy was 14, and these are only considered "Sexaul Assaults" because the girls he was doing it with were slightly younger than him.
These were not forcible rapes, rather this was consentual sex - just that the younger girls were not old enough to legally consent. If the boy was still 13, no criminal issue here.
The school officials were trying to figure out if students were having consentual sex - that sex is considered illegal because of the fact that the boy was 14 and not 13.

did you read the first girl's story? not the first one written about here, the first one who tried to warn the school before the others happened. doesn't sound consensual to me
