On today’s post-sanity, SJW-ruled American college campus, we've seen how a young man’s entire reputation and future can be ruined in the blink of an eye by the mere accusation of assault from an alleged victim.
Or even, apparently, when that "victim" says the exact opposite.
According to this, a student and football player at the University of Southern California, was kicked out of school after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend – despite the fact that his girlfriend said it never happened.
Matt Boermeester, a senior and kicker on the USC football team, was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, 22-year-old Zoe Katz, after a neighbor saw them roughhousing. The neighbor told a friend, who told the USC football coach, who told the school and launched a six-month Title IX investigation into an alleged assault.
When questioned by campus authorities, Katz said she told them Matt had never abused her, and that the alleged assault didn’t happen. But they didn’t believe her, instead insisting that she ““must be afraid of Matt,” Katz said.
“Terrible and untrue things have been said about Matt by people who don’t even know him, including apparently the third party who contacted Title IX, and these bizarre assertions have been treated as fact in this investigation,” Katz maintains.
“I have never been abused, assaulted or otherwise mistreated by Matt,” she continued. “He is an incredible person, and I am and have been 100 percent behind him. Nothing happened that warranted an investigation, much less the unfair, biased and drawn out process that we have been forced to endure quietly.”
Over the last six months, Katz and Boermeester have been hounded by investigators who insisted that something had occurred.
“I was stereotyped and was told I must be a ‘battered’ woman, and that made me feel demeaned and absurdly profiled,” Katz said in her statement, according to the L.A. Times “I understand that domestic violence is a terrible problem, but in no way does that apply to Matt and me.”
Despite having never been arrested or charged with a crime, USC suspended Boermeester, banned him from campus and prohibited him from meeting with his coaches and former teammates. Katz claims the school also barred her boyfriend from having any contact with her.
After she posted a tweet refuting USC’s claims, Katz said the school instructed her not to talk about the incident on social media.
Katz told the L.A. Times she feels “misled, harassed, threatened and discriminated against” by the school, and has now hired an attorney to try and clear her boyfriend’s name.
Shockingly, USC issued a statement Monday labeling the incident as a “student-conduct issue” and saying the school “stands by its investigation and the accounts provided by multiple witnesses.”
Just not, apparently, the account of the actual “victim.”
