A Sea Change in Jurisprudence?

For John, BLUFDown the road to Fascism.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

We seem to have traveled a long ways from when, in 1765, there was published "Blackstone's ratio":
It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.
Today, the Boston University Student Newspaper, The Daily Free Press, says:
We would rather see someone falsely accused than see someone avoid coming forward for fear of retribution for wrongly accusing someone.
The InstaPundit published the names of the Editorial Board.  Maybe shame will help these students learn.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  This, of course, applies to campus sexual assaults.  For now.
