Ban kangaroo courts in corporate HR and University Title IX departments

Universities, protected by law and compelled by a directive from the Obama Department of Education, have established a kangaroo campus court system in which young men regularly face life-changing quasi-judicial proceedings based on accusations of sexual misconduct at which they have little due process protection.

Both at universities and in corporate HR, there is an entirely separate non-democratic legal system, without any due process or standards for evidence. Men are routinely found guilty without a trial and either expelled or fired.

This is a gross injustice. If a crime has been committed, require the courts to handle it. If no crime has been committed, there should be no punishment.

Kangaroo Court
[Slang of U.S. origin.] An unfair, biased, or hasty judicial proceeding that ends in a harsh punishment; an unauthorized trial conducted by individuals who have taken the law into their own hands, such as those put on by vigilantes or prison inmates; a proceeding and its leaders who are considered sham, corrupt, and without regard for the law.

Confine Colleges and Universities to plagarism and other scholastic offenses.

Educational Institutions that receive even $1 of Federal or State funding should not have the legal right to expel or discipline students over suspected acts that would be considered felonies. They must wait until a conviction is reached by a proper court.

Women's Studies Professors and Sociology Majors are not qualified to run a court judging felonies, especially since many allow the accuser not to testify.
