I’ve read ESPN.com’s article over and over, I watched the “Outside the Lines” program on Sunday and read each of the University of Missouri’s statements that they’ve released. In the 16-months that ESPN investigated this story of Sasha Menu Courey, did they do a fair job in reporting the facts?
The athletic department feels the story was “skewed and unfair.”
I’m not a lawyer, a health care provider, or expert on mental health. However, I am a father and in those simplest terms, the main point I keep going back to in my mind over this entire story is why didn’t the parents of Menu Courey reach out to officials at Missouri, if they felt that football players at the school may have been involved in a rape of their daughter?
They weren’t satisfied with the way they were treated at memorial services for their daughter. They felt there was a lack of initiative on the part of the university in contacting them about whether or not an investigation should be opened and apparently never responded.
That’s what doesn’t add up in this story for me? As a parent, I would want answers and if I was truly not pleased with follow up from the university you can bet I’d be calling, knocking on doors and getting in front of any university official I could demanding answers.
