Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation requires that felonies committed on college and university campuses be promptly reported to law enforcement agencies. This ensures that felony charges are investigated and prosecuted by our judicial system rather than higher education bureaucracies. It ensures due process to defendants and the American system of justice for victims.
