    Yes, but the rules are bull****. Assault for words? Disorderly conduct for words? Just bull**** excuses by the authority to police and arrest more of its citizens in order to keep us all under thumb.

    I would like to see her charges and possibly her rant. People should be arrested for free speech or saying a curse word in public.

    Although if you have to swear and insult those who disagree with you that's definitely a problem and from my experience an indicator of personal maturity. She was definitely out of line and if such comments were directed at students I think she should be fired.

    I didn't see anything she should have been arrested for by any stretch.

    I do find it ironic, though, that she was trying to shut down the display.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    There must be, surely, more to this than what we see here. Something isn't right. Who called 911? Why did officers respond?

    Caller: Please send someone quickly. A professor is saying f*ck and I don't like it. She needs to be arrested. Send someone now, I'm offended. We need the government to shut her the hell up.

    911 Call Center: What? The "you know what word"? In public? At a university? Remain calm, armed representatives of the government are on the way now.


    There has to be more to this than we know.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    I watched the video. I found it funny that she called the display profane, upheld her right to free speech to say ****, but was attempting (from what I understand) to shot down the display and prevent them from exercising their rights too. She just comes off as a hypocritical, immature person.

    It's also funny that she kept calling the display "profane" and that it was "swearing to her."

    A profanity laced rant against another person or group of people can be considered threatening conduct or even an assault. There are limits to public conduct when others are involved.

    I think she was pointing out the hypocrisy of calling her exercise of free speech profane while apparently condoning the display of giant pictures of dead and mutilated fetuses.

    Yeah you'll likely get about $50 plus costs in my hood for your first offense, so freedom ain't free

    It all depends on what went down. If she was verbally assaulting or attacking others over the image that's one thing. If she was ranting and swearing like an immature child (which should be legal) that's another thing.
