How Bad can Reporting Be? - Pretty Bad

Here's the story - a University professor gives out an assignment, and tells the students to work on it individually - do NOT share answers.

A student solicits other students to share answers to the questions on the assignment.

The professor accuses the student of cheating and there are actually people who defend him! What sort of world is this?

Utterly astonishing to me, or would be if it came from other than the leader of a union:

"Chris in our view is still innocent, so it is still too bad that he got zero for that 10 per cent," Loreto said.

Innocent. In what possible universe?

There has been a lot of nonsense because the cheating was carried out using Facebook but cheating it manifestly was. I give the professor credit for catching it - Facebook made documenting that a lot easier.

Another sensible perspective on this.

The student made a mistake hiring a lawyer.
He should have gone to the Human Rights Commission.
No doubt he would have got a big settlement.

Well, he can now put his lawyer on the HRC path.

This world seems at times to get sillier and sillier.
