    One of the advantages to living in civil society is that we can expect people to behave in a relatively civil manner in public.
    How was she being uncivil?

    Awesome! What a foul mouth. She deserved to be arrested. She continued cursing after they asked her not to. I only wish she would have resisted arrest or punched one of the LEO's in the face. Would have loved to see her slammed face first into the concrete with a knee in her back while being cuffed. Now that would have been truely awesome.

    I agree. Not really representative of the Academy.

    Curry made a point of saying for the cameras to tell her class that she was being arrested, so there's that. Maybe her time might have been better spent preparing for that class instead of standing around acting like a jerk.

    I mean, I watched the vid. She's just having her little tantrum, and so what? From what I've read, she was arrested for disorderly conduct, that apparently being defined as repeatedly dropping the f-bomb. Don't know state/local/university rules, but I am guessing that the cops wouldn't have arrested her if she hadn't violated the law.

    Whether that law is "smart" or "good" isn't necessarily relevant to her arrest. Did she break the law? Will Curry become a folk-heroine? Who knows. All that matters is whether she broke the law. If she did, tough noogies.

    And if according to the officer's judgment you are guilty you will be allowed to present your case in court.

    With laws set as they deem and the insistence that jury nullification is not legal.

    Who said anything about christians? I just like seeing liberals getting their faces slammed into concrete. And their heads busted with batons too. I'm very disappointed that she didn't attack the cops.

    Furthermore, a folk-heroine to who? My suspicion would be an incredibly small minority at the campus itself, and an even smaller number on the internet.

    For all of the pretensions of whether or not someone is liberal, conservative, pro-choice, pro-life, and civilly disobedient, so on and so forth, the greater problem is one of professional behavior. An abortion display, approved by the college, comes and goes. No need to make a fuss. Being respected by the college or university you are teaching at? That's worth a whole lot more than some silly display.

    And I thinks it's completely appropriate for Christians to be showered with profanity anytime, anywhere......................
