REGARDING THE VIOLENCE

I found myself wondering today why all colleges and universities reward the truly violent students and expel those merely 'accused' of violence against women.* The protesters, the rioters, the campus vigilantes who show justice by throwing rocks through store windows, arson, or spraying graffiti never seem to feel the wrath of university administrators. But try taking a gun on campus, which is your actual civil right or try handing out copies of the Constitution [free speech] on campus, which is again, also your civil right, and the administration policy is to suspend or expel you without warning and without mercy.

Doesn't that seem odd to you? When did actual liberals rally around and support zero tolerance?

*Guilty until proven innocent is a rare approach to law in America but then we're not talking about law, we're talking about academic policy which bars the rule of law.
