Because a player hasn't come forward to fink on the rest of the team doesn't mean anybody has acted outside the bounds of their legal rights.
that's probably the attitude that's rubbing some folks the wrong way--it's not "finking" to report a brutal crime: sportsmanship be damned
Some folks, yes, but it shouldn't rub future lawyers the wrong way. We should know that it is their right to stay silent. Honorable, maybe not. But legal, absolutely.
We all understand they have rights. This thread isn't a stage for aspiring lawyers to floss their criminal law chops and the OP wasn't asking for such a discourse either. Back to the original question: Has the school acted in way that should make minorities feel welcome. The answer is no.
And part of your argument that Duke has not acted in a way that makes minorites feel welcome was that they didn't "compel" the students to cooperate with the police. And I'm saying that they have cooperated in every legal way. So there really isn't anything else Duke can do here, and thus, they haven't acted in a way that should make minorities more or less welcome than any other school.
Excuse me for using a legal defense on a LAW SCHOOL discussion board.
