Dale_M, thanks for that information. If they felt it could wait till the proceeding year, I doubt the university would take much action. He could easily have been suspended or punished at the end of the year.
Well for me, letting him continue, is a loss to our side. To stop him would have been a win. Those watching probably thought that King was badder because he had the guts to do what he did in the first place.
Or they thought him a fool and hypocrit for what he was doing and saying. As it was an academic campus, we can only hope that the ‘bright minds of tomorrow’ realized that the guy who seemed tough was truly the weakest of them all. The fact that he stopped once he realized he might have to pay damages show how strong his convictions were.
That just exposed our soft underbelly. That we are weak and not willing to stand up for and defend ourselves.
Or that we are stronger then those who think that we will be intimidated. Unless the group packed it up right then and there, I think they showed their perserverence to weather all types of attacks, that they will not allow any type of intimidation or harassment make them falter in their beliefs.
And the men deal with the mice, not climb on the chair. We climbed on the chair when we did nothing.
While they may not have physically intervened, they did not do nothing. They went through all the legitimate channels for the university. They obtained irrefutable evidence of the vandalism, called campus security and lodged a complaint. I also hope that they follow through with the complaint and not allow the university to let his actions go unpunished.
As the students did everything by the book, it will also make it easier for them to push for a harsh punishment. The student in question can not try to claim any type of victim status.
Perhaps they were even told beforehand to not confront anyone who attacked the display. My university’s pro-life group had campus security tell us to call them if we had any vandalism, and not to confront the vandals with force.
[quote=Edward62]You know what I agree with him. That doesn’t belong on a university campus.
If you ban one sanctioned activity at the university, you have to ban them all. If the Pro Life group cannot use their campus mall for a display, then the Car Club cannot show off their cars there, the Karate Club cannot hold exhibitions, ect…
