Baylor Regents Investigation: Art Briles failed to alert police of alleged assault

There are multiple findings that Briles protected players on multiples occasions after they sexually assaulted women. It would be nice to see the NCAA ban this rape enabler from ever coaching college football ever again.

A law firm hired by Baylor University to investigate the school's handling of sexual assault and violence cases involving athletes determined that 17 women since 2011 reported incidents of sexual and domestic violence involving 19 football players, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday afternoon. Four of the cases involved alleged gang rapes.

In May, Philadelphia-based law firm Pepper Hamilton released a scathing report about Baylor's handling of sexual assault allegations. That report led to the demotion and then resignation of former university president and chancellor Kenneth Starr; the firing of football coach Art Briles; the suspension and then resignation of athletic director Ian McCaw; and the firings of multiple athletic department employees.

The Journal on Friday quoted Baylor regents who detailed some of the Pepper Hamilton findings for the first time. According to the regents, in at least one case, Briles "knew about an alleged incident and didn't alert police, the school's judicial-affairs staff or the Title IX office in charge of coordinating the school's response to sexual violence."

J. Cary Gray, a Dallas lawyer and member of the Baylor board of regents, told The Journal, "There was a cultural issue there that was putting winning football games above everything else, including our values. ... We did not have a caring community when it came to these women who reported that they were assaulted. And that is not OK."

Rule #1 for young college women - report rapes ONLY to the police. The college is not your friend.

Rulle #1 may need to be modified at many schools, they have their own police forces. So the report may need to be made to local town or city police, but be prepared for those forces to often be influenced by the college/university's presence in the community.

If you think the 'justice system' is the friend of victims of sexual assault, take a closer look. The 'real police' are often just as bad, if not worse, than kampus kops.

While that used to be true, it's no longer true; police departments will have someone trained in domestic violence situations and law in all but the smallest Podunk towns.

Given the quality of much police training I have seen, that is not something I would consider to be all that encouraging to a potential reporter. Hopefully some departments get good training, and officers who actually learn from it.

I think that sometimes only the college "police" investigate (or not) rape accusations is insane. It's almost like having the PGA investigate a killing on a golf green.

If you analyze the larger story, indications are that the Waco Police Department was not exactly helpful. Some would say that parts of the police department helped the football team. It is never a good thing when the local police or university police have a vested interest in protecting the big money machine in own.
