The disconnect

Murad Hanif is not likely to come back from Egypt to face rape charges.

If you think he will perhaps there's a good land offer out there for you.

This DAs office doesn't hesitate to hold charges against students involved in riots or streaks for months, and when a hearing comes the case often goes away.

However, in this case, the DA's office couldn't hold rape charges against Hanif for a week? Instead they were dropped to be refiled ... and along came a trip to Egypt.

There's an enormous disconnect here, and the blame for this mess should go right to the DA's office.
