TO THE EDITOR:
In the wake of allegations of mishandling sexual assault reports on campus, I am angered and saddened by UNC’s recent decision to send out the Alert Carolina message, “Police File Charges for False Report of Recent Sexual Assault.”
The message states that it was “a non-UNC student” and that “no Alert Carolina notification was made in the wake of the (original) alleged incident.”
So why send out a notification of false reporting charges?
The original incident didn’t warrant a message. The person involved was not a student.
