Warwick is in a quite sticky situation as they will be criticised whether they choose to let the boys in, or continue to exclude them.
I personally think it is fine to let them in, but I would definitely not welcome them in with open arms. At the end of the day, giving them a second chance would be the appropiate course of action.
I'd like to see how people react to Muslims discussing a terror attack on the uni.
To change a 10 year ban (i.e. you're past your main education years) into just 2 means something's very wrong with at least one of the decisions. Either they intended to use the harsh initial verdict as publicity they take a tough stance to secretly reverse it later, or they didn't look into the case properly at the time for the 10 years.
I think booting someone off the course for something that wouldn't actually have reached the person who ended up so scared (justifiably, given what she read) is harsh. If whoever leaked it thought there really was a genuine risk, they'd have reported it to the police, and the police having seen it now would have done something. All that said, though, I think Warwick should have at the very least insisted those 'potential rapists' (for want of a better phrase) do not go anyone near the subject of their words.
There probably has to be a line somewhere with the nature of jokes, but where is tricky. However private chats should remain private.
I have said things in private chats which could be seen as dodgy .For example I once said that whoever did my timetable should be taken into a dark room and beaten. Obviously I wasn’t planning to go into the school office with a metal pipe, but that nonetheless could have been taken the wrong way.
