Again, just because attorneys won't take a case which looks like a financial boondoggle from a case evaluation standpoint doesn't mean it didn't happen. They'd have to prove that there was some error in the forensic analysis, and that error not just suggests, but screams a different outcome.

I have to guess a lot because the particulars of the forensics are extremely vague by all public accounts.

And speaking as an attorney, we don't decline cases like this because we think our potential client is right. We think about the resources we're going to have to put into the case vs. what we can get out of it unless we have some sort of grant money or outside backing.

That said, if you think police labs and forensics are fool-proof, and that all experts on behalf of the State tell the truth, give this a read:

The galling thing is that she didn't die in prison.

Agreed.

Conversely, just because the parents of a suicide victim claim he was the fulcrum of a vast conspiracy, doesn't mean he was.

I don't believe Sigma Chi should be shut down over incredible rumors and with no due process. Others are free to disagree.

Okay. You've belabored that point for a bit now, entertaining a non-issue as if it were an issue. Is this some sort of poor Tucker Carlson impression?

I thought we were having a discussion of mutual interest. If I misinterpreted your ongoing engagement and comments in this thread, I apologize.

There's enough to unpack here without creating new controversies from whole cloth. Will a fraternity be shuttered for potential bad behavior over a decade ago? Nope, never. Not even worth discussing.

I do find it problematic that supporters of BLM would choose an issue such as this to attach themselves to, especially when asking for such harsh action for something which happened over a decade ago.

As with anything, they ought to pick their battles. These Sigma Chi students could have been allies and now, by being attacked for something which likely didn't happen, which in no way are they connected with other than occupying the same real estate as those accused, are alienated.

And as someone who supports the aims of BLM, incidents such as this, and the apparent bent on eliminating Greek Life in general, alienate people who would otherwise be supportive.
