Something happened Saturday. We're not sure what, but it was reported Tuesday. When we called the spokeswoman, it went to voicemail. We don't know anything else, but if you do, call the U-M DPS.

Pretty useless story with a lot of assumptions by the reply voters.

I question the fact that it took 3 days to report the incident. It would have taken me 3 minutes to call 911 or security. It certainly doesn't help police in their investigation.

Maybe because it's shocking, you don't know if you'll be believed, you don't know if you'll get fired, you don't know if the abuser will get a lawyer who will help turn things around and blame the victim....
