This article would get a fail as an essay by a 16 year old. We don't know whether the 'acts' were criminal' or just 'immodest' Halachically, and therefore we don't know if the atorney general was right not to pursue a case that didn't exist. What if theoretically the students were legally consenting adults ? Could not that be why the students refused to involve the police ? If these acts were as obvious as is claimed why did no other students know about it? This sort of gossip moves very quickly in narrow circles. Having a body of senior Rabbis looking into allegations of improper behaviour is actually a gigantic step forward from the previous position of denial and accusing the media of being anti-religious.
