TO THE EDITOR:
On Monday, Alert Carolina sent an informational message about charges of false report being filed against a sexual assault survivor by the UNC Department of Public Safety.
This message shocked me, given that Alert Carolina had not made an announcement about any reported sexual assaults on or near campus in the past several days.
The message explains that there was no “imminent threat” to the Carolina community following the assault, and that an alert would have compromised the integrity of the investigation.
I question the integrity of a sexual assault investigation that turns into a case against the reporting survivor within 48 hours of its initiation.
