After an incident like this, what is a university to do but turn over the students for prosecution and mourn the dead? But there is more that needs to be done -- repair of the school's reputation. There is little a university can do to control its students, but the actions of its students can brand the school. That is what happened to Rutgers. It will take the school a long time to live down stupidity the two students who broadcasted another student's private moments. Parents are right to ask about the kind of student accepted to the school and whether they risk sending their young men and women there. Rutgers will need to overcome this, and it will take time to undo the damage.
