I'm really sick of only employees going to jail over a college's bad acts.

So there's this:


Los Angeles City Councilmember Mark Ridley-Thomas was indicted on federal charges Wednesday for his role in an alleged bribery scheme that landed his son a professorship at USC.​
Federal prosecutors alleged in a 20-count indictment that Ridley-Thomas helped direct funding and contracts to USC’s school of social work while serving on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. In exchange, his son, former state lawmaker Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, was guaranteed graduate school admission and a paid teaching position by the school's then-dean, Marilyn Louise Flynn.​
This is really the same exact behavior that went on at USC with several people involved in the College Admissions Scandal involving four different cases.

At what point do colleges start getting cut off from Federal Funds and lose their accreditation for this crap? It's clear that the colleges are simply turning a blind eye to it all in order to make money.

You can't have this many bad actors in one place without that one place being just as culpable for it all.

It's far past time for these big name colleges to start being shut down if they've gotten so big that they can no longer run their own admissions programs without blatant, wanton and rampant corruption.

Charge 1 Overt Act 9 - I was sold.

Then you read charges 4 thru 20 and I gotta say, I'm impressed - if you're going to do fraud may as well go all the way in by as many means as possible. :ROFLMAO:

Agreed. There's no way the school doesn't know this shit is going on. It's probably the school that sets shit like this up to begin with. "We'll give you the job of Dean of Admissions if you can bring us in some contracts and money from rich folks to get their kids in." Then of course when they get busted they throw them under the bus and hire somebody else telling them the same thing.

They do the same thing with sports. Hire a coach or athletic director that has a network in place for illegal recruiting to get an advantage.
