@chick_in_kiev Amazing how it glosses over the ACLU’s battles AGAINST the KKK. They identified the KKK terrorism as a critical issue in their founding documents.

@chick_in_kiev Also, the Powell article ignores the distinction between “accused” when talking about criminal trials and “accused” when talking about a college sexual harassment hearing. The process that is “due” in each is different, so being inappropriately deferential in the latter is bad.
@chick_in_kiev Which is why the ACLU sued over those provisions in 2020:

@chick_in_kiev And, you can see from their comments that their complaint about the new Title IX rules include that they “inappropriately favor the accused” by, among other things, allowing schools to use a “clear and convincing evidence” standard rather than a “preponderance of the evidence.”

@JeffreyASachs @robbysoave I'm not convinced the initial reaction by the prof was "wildly inappropriate."

In his 4chan (!) posts, Kieran provides other students' comments about his interaction at the lecture.

Notice how both of them describe him as leaving early from the lecture?
@JeffreyASachs @robbysoave He doesn't describe that in his complaint, and it doesn't come across in the audio.

In the hearing, they discuss his comments at the lecture, but also interactions with the deans and other students.
@JeffreyASachs @robbysoave We know he met with the dean who emailed him about his comments at the lecture, and also his dean about his study strategies for the upcoming USMLE. Both of these meetings were likely testy - in the hearing he reads an email about a recent failed hematology test.
