When the Univeristy of the Pacific gets it wrong

May 31, 2009

…they really get it wrong:

 A woman identified in court papers as Jane Doe claimed in a March lawsuit that two basketball players raped her at a May 2008 party at Townhouses, campus housing on Pershing Avenue, and that a third player came into the room where she was and assaulted her as the first two players were leaving.

 Pacific spokesman Richard Rojo said Thursday that the school does not consider the incident to be a rape.

 “We would call it date rape,” he said.

 Rojo said the university considers “outright rape” and date rape to be different, in that date rape does not involve “a rapist jumping out of bushes and attacking people randomly.”

 He said, “These are people who knew each other. … It’s a social situation and unfortunately an all-too common problem at universities.
