Having worked as a department head for a liberal arts college (Director of Student Health) I cannot even imagine that the college did not make the local law enforcement aware of all that had been reported.

The college where I worked had “security officers” and any violation of any LAW was immediately reported to the CITY POLICE which responded I think appropriately.

I can’t even imagine a college administration so stupid that the reports and the evaluations would not have resulted in immediate termination. A college professor having sex with students is a real “no no” so there should have been something done immediately by the college.

There was just WAY TOO MUCH SMOKE for there to have NOT BEEN SOME FIRE.

I hope the parents of this girl take action against this school, and I doubt not that they will do so. I hope the administrators responsible for these NON DECISIONS to protect the students (all students) from this disordered man, and I think he is most likely psychopathic as well as bi-polar (the two often times are co-diagnoses), are pilloried and and FIRED at the very least and held individually responsible.

This makes my blood boil!
