This is disgusting ...
Baylor University officials actively discouraged possible sexual assault victims from reporting incidents against athletes -- and in one case RETALIATED against a woman who did.
It's all part of an investigation by a law firm hired by Baylor to look into alleged misconduct by school officials regarding SEVERAL violent allegations against student athletes, primarily football players.
The report states clear as day ... investigators say University administrators directly discouraged complainants from reporting or participating in student conduct processes ... contributing to a hostile environment.
"In one instance, those actions constituted retaliation against a complainant for reporting sexual assault."
The report does not specify how they retaliated.
Investigators also say school officials failed to "identify and respond to a pattern of sexual violence by a football player, to take action in response to reports of a sexual assault by multiple football players, and to take action in response to a report of dating violence."
As a result of the investigation, Baylor fired head football coach Art Briles, demoted Baylor president Ken Starr and axed several members of the administration and the athletic dept.
