Accused should face expulsion

Dear Editor,

I was shocked to pick up the Cincinnati Enquirer and find out that a student at Northern Kentucky University was allegedly raped. I was even more shocked to find out that the student who is charged with this vicious crime is still a student here. What in the world are the school administrators thinking?

A student charged with rape is a menace to society and ought to be expelled and put behind bars. There are a number of females on this campus, one of whom is my sister, who cannot defend themselves against men. They are at risk for assault and possibly worse.

The black students want to turn this, and every other issue, into a racial issue. According to the Enquirer, the black students on campus have complained that Michael Powell’s mug shot was posted on the cover of The Northerner. These students are attempting to turn a legitimate safety concern into a divisive, racial issue.

Every student at Northern needs to make a decision: either you stand with a scumbag or you stand with the unnamed victim and every other female on Northern’s campus. Those who stand with the females need to maintain vigilance and work hard for Powell’s expulsion.
