    Innocent people pay the price for Sanctuary Cities!

    "stymieindurham....that's a great idea."

    Not a phrase one should ever utter.

    It's called sarcasm, people. Look up the stats on sex crimes committed by illegal aliens. Many of the victims are underage.

    Wow. I wonder where he is from? I guess our NC Legislature should feel great about their recent vote overriding the governor's veto.

  • Serendipity5 Sep 17, 4:31 p.m.

    Can't believe his bail is only $40,000. I hope he goes away for a very long time. Life won't be enough!

    Why would you say that? If he was staying at that facility, he has a very sick family member.

    trader said it because this article currently does not say he was staying there, just that the alleged crime took place there

    678devilish: I was being sarcastic. It seems every bad thing in the news gets blamed on the President.

    Will UNC make it more safer for families staying at the facility?

  • mm23 Sep 17, 1:40 p.m.

    If they are staying at that facility, they are dealing with a serious family member's illness. Outrageous and my heart goes out to the victim and their family. At least they got the guy and he will likely be incarcerated. I think it is a low bond as well considering the nature of the crime.

  • Nauti-dog Sep 17, 1:40 p.m.

    bond to low...

    **************************************

    And why do you say this? Should it be a million dollars? Two million? Bond.....is.......not.......meant.......to.......be......pun

    ishment.

    It is to ensure a court appearance so that he can get the trial he's entitled to. If convicted, then he'll be punished. If you don't know the details of the alleged crime, his past record (or lack thereof) or the risk of his flight, then you have no idea what his bond should be.

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again03 Sep 17, 1:31 p.m.

    I like letting each guy apologize lovingly, although letting it endure never satisfies.

  • 678devilish Sep 17, 1:20 p.m.

    Shocking! He did not care and I hope the courts and jury will give this man at least 60 years in prison. I do hope the victim will be OK in time with counseling.

    If we passed legislation for an immediate death penalty for those obviously guilty of rape, this heinous perpetration would drop off the crime stats.

    very few in Orange Co. where he will be tried have the intestinal fortitude to that.... unfortunately

    ""UNC Hospitals housing facility" implies that this rape occurred at a UNC owned and operated facility. That is incorrect. The SECU Family House is owned and operated by the State Employees Credit Union Foundation. Yes, the reason for the facility's location is to help families of those hospitalized at UNC Hospitals." - GoHeels1969

    you beat me to it.

    "UNC Hospitals housing facility" implies that this rape occurred at a UNC owned and operated facility. That is incorrect. The SECU Family House is owned and operated by the State Employees Credit Union Foundation. Yes, the reason for the facility's location is to help families of those hospitalized at UNC Hospitals. I guess this is just another lame attempt by wral to cast dispersions about UNC.

    what? no one's blamed President Obama for this? *gasp*

    stymieindurham....that's a great idea. Let the victims choose the punishment.

  • NC Reader Sep 17, 10:58 a.m.

    Whiskey4one -- The Honor Court doesn't supplant criminal investigations. Any rape victim should call the police. However, some people alleging rape choose not to go to the police or the prosecutor won't take the case because there is no physical evidence and it would be nearly impossible to prove in court. In the past, some students have decided to pursue Honor Code violations against alleged rapists in Honor Court. The jurisdiction of the Honor Court should never have included this kind of case, and it no longer does. The Honor Court was not equipped to handle, nor did it ever want to handle, rape cases. You are talking about apples and oranges.

  • stymieindurham Sep 17, 10:51 a.m.

    Let the family determine the sentence (if guilty). Bet you he wouldn't do it again.

  • sorosbot Sep 17, 10:42 a.m.

    Good grief .... put this guy away a long time... we are not safe anywhere anymore..
