DeVos drops Obama-era guidance on college sex crimes

Betsy DeVosU.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said on Friday her department was issuing new interim guidelines to colleges on how to handle sexual assault allegations, rescinding Obama administration rules that it said treated the accused unfairly.

Earlier in September, DeVos, a controversial advocate of school choice appointed by President Donald Trump, had called for an overhaul of the guidelines implemented under former President Barack Obama.
She said too many students had been falsely charged with sexual assault and schools were terrified about being accused of ignoring accusations.

TVNL Comment:  Sure.  Make it easier to grab a crotch. This is done to protect schools from lawsuits or loss of donors.  It just gets uglier.

US to deport teens to Central America

The Trump administration is weighing a new policy that would fast-track the deportation of thousands of Central American teenagers who arrived at the southern border, unaccompanied by adults.

According to two sources with knowledge of the developing policy proposal, the Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to avoid creating a new protected class of undocumented immigrants, given how politically difficult it has been for the administration to unwind another program – DACA, which protected young people brought by adults to the country illegally when they were children.

Jake LaMotta dies at 95

Jake LaMotta, the Bronx boxer who captured the world middleweight championship in 1949 and whose turbulent life was later the subject of the 1980 film Raging Bull, died on Tuesday because of complications from pneumonia. He was 95.

LaMotta’s longtime fiancée, Denise Baker, said the longtime professional boxer died on Tuesday at Palm Garden of Aventura nursing home in Florida.

“He had eyes that danced, all the way to the very end,” Baker told the Guardian. “I used to tell him if he was a Native American, they would have called him Eyes That Danced. He had the sharpest, most moving eyes.”

Born Giacobbe LaMotta in 1921 on the lower east side of Manhattan, he learned to box at the Coxsackie Reformatory for delinquent youths after being convicted of attempted burglary as a teenager. He went undefeated as an amateur upon release and entered the professional ranks aged 19 in 1941.
