Well, this is dumb:
We must reform how colleges handle sexual assault cases but requiring survivors to report their assaults to police is the wrong approach.

Is it, Senator? Is it?
.@sengillibrand Exactly right. Accused rapists are best judged by a revolutionary tribunal of women's studies professors.

FTR, if I'm ever murdered on a college campus, I want the student council to handle it instead of the police.

Good Lord, but Sen. Gillibrand is a dolt.

Why do you want to shield criminals who sexually assault people from the police? @SenGillibrand
— Choke on This (@Dr_2A) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand When it comes to investigating and prosecuting crime, college administrators are worse than rank amateurs.
— Taxpayer1234 (@Taxpayers1234) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Gonna be crazy here and suggest that, if you want crime punished, you should report it to the criminal justice system.

@SenGillibrand A pathetic attempt to expand the definition of sexual assault beyond the law, while lowering the standard of proof.Well done!
— Destiny Trueheart (@DestinTrueheart) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand This is completely ridiculous. What do you think the police are for? What message are you sending? Are you a child?
— Booclay (@bo_xin_ni) November 17, 2015
@SenGillibrand Sexual assualt is a crime. Crimes get reported to the police. This isn't that hard, Senator.

@SenGillibrand Sexual assault is a crime. Not reporting it as such does nothing to empower the victim.
— Jacque (@Jajngn) November 16, 2015
Just stop @SenGillibrand You are suggesting that survivors report to someone who is NOT TRAINED to handle it. POLICE ARE TRAINED FOR THIS!
— cybernetic『snake』 (@moist_apple) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Why is involving the police in felony sexual assault wrong? Who is better equipped to handle such crimes?
— DaveConlon (@DaveCC_MI) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand it seems that reporting the crime to police that have the training and are equipped for cases like this is the smart thing.

@SenGillibrand Why is going to the police the wrong approach when reporting a crime?
— Cameron Frye (@anarchohindu) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand No, reporting crimes to the police is the right approach. Your advice is going to get people killed.

@SenGillibrand College administrators in law enforcement roles — are you serious?
— Doug Sheridan (@dougsheridan) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Why on earth would you ever go to the police. It's not like they are equipped to handle investigations and such.

Who needs evidence and law enforcement? Kangaroo courts work just fine! https://t.co/6KQkitGR6O
— Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) November 17, 2015
@SenGillibrand better to keep it in kangaroo courts of the universities? that makes no sense.
— Uncle Lancey (@unclelancey) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Why not just ban all men from campus? Draw names from a hat? Trial by combat? Let accusers be judges? All equally fair!
— Brian (@settheray2brian) November 16, 2015
Seriously. How could Gillibrand possibly think what she wrote makes any sense?
@SenGillibrand ??? There should always be due process. Why report it to the college but not the authorities?
— Ridley Riddleson PhD (@infomaniac8126) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand yep, better the accused have to suffer a kangaroo court with the burden of guilt hanging over his head. (sarcasm)
— Amico di una tigre (@spacemanspiff76) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Because due process is just such a hassle. Better to let untrained admins handle it.
— Here in the dark (@ArtemisBug) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand Yeah, we wouldn't want due process to get in the way of convicting people. It's not like it's a *right* or anything.
— Dr. Strangelove (@DrStrangeLove22) November 16, 2015
.@SenGillibrand I see someone who doesn't believe in due process and puts their faith in with hunts. What you're proposing IS the problem
— Alternative Roo (@Alternative_Roo) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand my only question is how have you not deleted this and claimed you were hacked yet?
— Steven Braunstein (@SWFLRugby) November 16, 2015
@SenGillibrand OMG!! So we don't let the professionals handle criminal investigations?pass the bong,lady you've had enough

@SenGillibrand This is seriously one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

Give her some time. We’re sure she’ll find a way to top herself soon enough.
