Cal Poly frat suspended after alleged sexual assault

April 6, 2016

Cal Poly LargeUniversity administrators suspended a Cal Poly fraternity after a woman reported being sexually assaulted at a party connected to the frat. The alleged sexual assault occurred less than a month after an attempted sexual assault allegedly took place at the same fraternity’s frat house.

Cal Poly officials say a woman said she was forced to consume alcohol and was sexually assaulted by a male at a party last Thursday. The party took place at an off-campus location, and it was associated with the Delta Chi fraternity.

San Luis Obispo police are investigating the incident. They have not announced an arrest or a suspect in the case.

Shortly after midnight on March 6, a male allegedly attempted a sexual assault at the Delta Chi fraternity house on Monte Vista Place. The attacker allegedly held down the female victim and tried to sexually assault her.

The victim fought off the attacker and managed to escape. She chose not to report the incident to police.

University officials placed Delta Chi on social probation following the March 6 incident. The university suspended all of the fraternity’s activities after the alleged sexual assault on March 31.

    Such a double standard at universities these days. Free speech is under assault with greater fervor than sexual battery.

    In every initial report, the female is the victim and the man is the culprit.
    When an actual investigation is done, I have observed that 25 to 30% of the cases the female drew it upon herself or exaggerated the report.

    I would never hire anybody that put a fraternity association on a resume.

    If they are just going to “allege” these things and not report them to the police, the media should ignore them. I also don’t understand how the university can suspend an entire fraternity on the word of someone who isn’t willing to report the crime. Grow a pair lady! You might be saving the next woman.

    I can hear Delta’s defense now……
    Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests – we did.
    But you can’t hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn’t we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn’t this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, isn’t this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!
