    I don't know. People lie all the time. Ask her. Although an educated guess would be that it's unwise for a Chancellor to admit to being afraid of her students.

    Why assume she is crying because she is scared of the protesters and not because she is upset with herself and the fact that her career is now on the ropes (rightfully or not)?

    She didn't leave the building for two hours before because she was afraid of her students.

    Because she said she wasn't and we both agree that the crowd was about as non-threatening as it gets.

    Yeah, I know and it looks pretty bad. It's even worse to admit it which is why I said, "Although an educated guess would be that it's unwise for a Chancellor to admit to being afraid of her students."

    Because she said she wasn't and we both agree that the crowd was about as non-threatening as it gets.
    And her body language in addition to her previous behavior suggests otherwise.

    PlayDrive said it best. Most animals can read body language. And I'm an animal, too. They were both afraid. Unless you're an anomoly, you can read it as well. And do as much every day.

    No, it was not because of actions she had taken against the student body. Who do you think you are?? Who do they think they are?? She didn't pepper spray them. Didn't order them pepper sprayed. LEOs did it as their method of crowd control. These protesters are not in charge....as much as it seems others acquiesce to them, they're not.[

    She was scared because they sought to intimidate her. And they succeeded. As to it being peaceful assembly and protest. I agree with you.

    Well, darn, doesn't it suck to be an "anomaly". I agree they look shaken, but that's not the claim. It's not that they are scared or upset, it's that they are scared of the protesters themselves! How anyone is able to pretend to know that fact, considering it was one of the most nonviolent protests ever captured on video and she said she wasn't scared of them, is beyond me.

    But you are all entitled to your opinion and I'll just keep being an anomaly I suppose.

    from what I understand , the crowd was loud and rowdy while she was inside... and went back to being loud and rowdy after she left.

    the silent treatment was pretty cool though... kids generally aren't disciplined enough to shut up , so i'm half impressed.

    Intimidation or not, they are free to do as they did. It was a good use of protest. She was the one that called in the cops, yes? The cops which acted in such a manner against the student body, yes? There is anger directed at her for her role and response, yes? That anger being a result of her actions, yes?
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Dragon, I don't believe it would require shooting more than one or two of them before the rest would run like scared sheep.
