Thanks to the efforts of everyone from student activists to Vice President Joe Biden, people are slowly starting to acknowledge that rape on college campuses is an enormous problem. At Brigham Young University, however, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Students at the university claim they’ve been investigated — and, in some cases, disciplined — for violating the school’s code of conduct after filing reports of sexual assault, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. 

In interviews with Mic and the Salt Lake Tribune, students have said the school’s associate dean of students and Title IX coordinator, Sarah Westerberg, refers all reports of rape to BYU’s Honor Code office, which enforces campus-wide behavioral standards set by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to student reports, the Honor Code office has allegedly taken punitive action against rape victims for breaking school rules, effectively blaming them for “causing” their own assaults by violating the code of conduct.

Mississippi Jails Are Losing Inmates, And Local Officials Are ‘Devastated’ By The Loss Of Revenue

County officials across Mississippi are warning of job losses and deep deficits as local jails are being deprived of the state inmates needed to keep them afloat. The culprit, say local officials, is state government and private prisons, which are looking to boost their own revenue as sentencing and drug-policy reforms are sending fewer bodies into the correctional system.

In the late 1990s, as the overcrowded Mississippi prison system buckled under the weight of mass incarceration, the state asked local governments to build local correctional institutions to house state prisoners. It was billed as a win-win: The Mississippi Department of Correction would foot the bill for each prisoner, and the counties would get good jobs guarding them. The state guaranteed that the local jails would never be less than 80 percent occupied, and the locals would get a 3 percent boost in compensation each…

Ex-New Orleans Saints Star Will Smith Was Shot Seven Times in the Back

Former New Orleans Saints star Will Smith was intentionally gunned down by a “rageful” driver who ignored his wife’s pleas to leave the couple alone and then shot them over and over without remorse, the family’s lawyer said Wednesday.

The Orleans Parish coroner confirmed Wednesday that Smith suffered eight gunshot wounds — seven in the back and one in the lateral chest wall. Toxicology results aren’t expected for six to eight weeks.

Suspect Cardell Hayes “actually stood over Will Smith’s dead body as his wife, who had crawled away because she couldn’t walk, was cowering and hiding,” Peter Thomson, an attorney for the Smith family, told reporters Wednesday as he recounted his version of the slaying in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District.

The massive hunt for the “man in the hat” linked to the Brussels airport bombings appears to be over.

Belgium’s federal prosecutor said that Paris attacks suspect Mohamed Abrini had confessed to being at the scene of the blasts in Brussels on March 22.

Speculation had been mounting since Abrini’s arrest on Friday that he was the suspect pictured in surveillance video from the airport alongside two suicide bomber

That video showed a man in a light-colored jacket and dark hat pushing a luggage cart loaded with a black bag at the airport.

Two other men pictured with the man in the hat — Najim Laachraoui and Ibrahim El Bakraoui — blew themselves up in the attack, leaving Belgian authorities searching for the third suspect.

Two men are dead in a shooting at a military base in San Antonio, Texas, authorities said.

The attack at Lackland Air Force Base, a part of Joint Base San Antonio, appears to be a murder-suicide, Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokesman James Keith told MSNBC. The base said in a statement that there were no indications it was related to terrorism.

The gunfire was reported at about 8:40 a.m. local time, and when police and security officers arrived, they found the victims dead in an office in a building known as Forbes Hall, authorities said. Two Glock firearms were found at the scene.

A 17-year-old homeless “runaway” faces a murder charge in connection with the killing of a University of Texas freshman this week, Austin police said Friday.

The suspect — identified as Meechaiel Criner — was arrested Thursday and booked in the Travis County Jail, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said at a news conference.

Student Haruka Weiser, an 18-year-old dance and theater major, was last seen alive on the Austin campus Sunday night before she was reported missing the following morning. Her body was discovered near a creek on Tuesday, and investigators declared her death a homicide — setting off a manhunt on the campus of 50,000 students.
