no no – I’m very sorry for not being more responsible with the way I was talking about him. I threw that young man into the mix because my imagination has been wondering about the trickle-down effects of power on the boys who did this to Jackie and to others. I made it a question of whether he was involved, but then placed those comments too close to my ponderings about power players in frats. I’m throwing into the mix an idea that there are rapists who are hazed, and that this is part of the social stigma of going against the cool thing to do (like Jackie’s friends who were afraid to report her story for fear of being socially ostracized). What those boys experience should be brought to light as part of a full and fair discussion of this issue.
