Heighland Heights, KY -- A college professor at Northern Kentucky University encouraged her students to vandalize a pro-life display members of the campus Right to Life group set up to oppose abortion.
Not content with urging students to trash the memorial, Dr. Sally Jacobsen participated in the vandalism and was caught on camera by reporters from the student newspaper. Members of the Northern Right to Life, the campus pro-life group, set up hundreds of crosses on a campus lawn to memorialize the babies who have died from abortion since Roe v. Wade.
After Dr. Jacobson and NKU students destroyed the display, members of the group decided put new crosses up in their place and camp out overnight on Thursday to make sure they weren't vandalized again.
The student group also told The Northerner student newspaper it plans to press charges with local police.
"We called the police and told them that we decided to press charges," Julie Broering, treasurer for the group, said. The decision came after members of the pro-life club held a day-long meeting and vote.
Campus police reports indicate several young women destroyed about 400 crosses from the display in the grass in front of the campus center on Wednesday evening.
Meanwhile, Northern Kentucky University President James Votruba has confirmed that Dr. Sally Jacobsen encouraged students in her British literature class to "exercise their free speech" by vandalizing the display.
Jacobson's class meets on Wednesday evening and reporters from The Northerner caught her and NKU student trashing the pro-life display.
"I am very disappointed that this happened," Votruba told The Northerner. "At a university, the opposing views should be able to bump up against each other. Responding with pamphlets or speeches would have allowed the power of ideas to compete."
The student newspaper indicated about 10 students joined Jacobson in vandalizing the display. Police arrived two hours after Jacobson's class period and found the crosses in trash cans across campus.
David Tobergte, an administrative sergeant with the University Police said those involved could face felony theft charges and any students could also face university sanctions regarding the incident.
Dean of Students Kent Kelso apologized for the incident and said those involved would be punished. He indicated he would press for a full police investigation.

So nice to see that college, where one used to go to to form an opinion and debate it's merits, hasn't changed.
I thought college is a place to exchange ideas...what is going on with these professors and 'guest speakers'. Like that Latino woman Bill Oreilly had a recording of in Arizona...saying Republicans hate Latinos!! These institutions are really run by liberals and democrats... it is all coming out!
Looks like typical bull dyke feminists.
Leftist scum at it again, guaranteed she won't be fired for exercising her "free speech".
The nazis used to debate their opponents at political rallies by smashing their heads. Give the Democrats time and they will adopt that tactic as well.
Yeah. Uh huh. Sure.
Except for the "professor", who has "tenure", I'm sure.
So, by her thinking, I can exercise my free speech and go and burn an abortion clinic, right?
Could use a little exercise, couldn't they?
ROFLOL! What's a British lit class got to do with the issue of abortion or free speech? Nothing. Dr. Sally Jacobsen is just using her influence to advance a personal agenda and should be terminated.
Getting a little fast and loose with the First Amendment, aren't we? I wasn't aware that freedom of speech included the freedom to vandalize.
Murdering bitch psychopath!!!
See, for liberals, the right to protest and resist is only reserved for themselves. Conservative protest should be prosecuted.
This is the world where unrestrained liberalism takes us.....prisons for conservative protesters and re-education camps for the rest.
Another example of liberal tolerance.
College is now the place that people exchange soiled underpants......boys wearing girls' and girls wearing boys'!
Bingo! Leaving this in the hands of campus security would be a big mistake. Anyone who is the victim of a crime on campus and accepts a universities pleas to handle the matter internally is a real fool.
Murdering bitch psychopath!!!
Beyond which what can be said?
I was wondering if there was actually anything college profs can do to violate thier ewthics clause in their contract....or do they even have one any more?
Let's hope a court of inquiry on this will give her such a pranging she'll be lucky if she ends up wearing a uniform of a bloody toilet attendant.
Well, if the can't respect an unborn child's life, I certainly wouldn't expect respect for freedom of speech.
At UT-Austin the other day, there was a giant display cursing the "fools" who use religion as a crutch, calling it the "opiate of the masses". What is the point of a display like that? Supposing for a second it was even true, what would one gain from exerting time and effort to belittle someone else's personal belief? It must make them feel superior, the "opiate of the narcissists".
And she's Interim Director of Women's Studies. It's not too hard to connect the dots between Women's Studies devotees and an animus toward unborn human life.
Sure there is, they could:
1) be registered Republicans
2) Mention the American founding in a favorable way
3) Not carry a Communist manifesto with you at all times
4) Be able to think on your own
Why would they ever need an abortion. ;-)
Anyway, with all her interest in British literature, I wonder if she has ever encountered Winston Churchill's A History of the English Speaking Peoples? (Answer: Yes, she tore it up and threw it in a trashcan.)
He should exercise his free speech and send her packing.
I doubt those feminist hogs will ever have to worry about pregnancy, much less an abortion.
Group to lead Woman's Studies

A seven-person work group will run the Women's Studies Program (WMS) at Northern Kentucky University in lieu of a department head.
Dr. Sally Jacobsen, professor of literature and language, resigned this summer as director of the WMS program. She ran the program for three years and resigned after she did not receive an increased stipend for her duties. Jacobsen will remain active in the program as a member of its Advisory Board.
Twenty-three members of the WMS Advisory Board, most of whom are teachers in the program, decided that an interdisciplinary work group would best fit the needs of the students for the 2003-2004 academic year.
Board members Nancy Hancock, professor of philosophy, and Katherine Meyer, director of Adult Learner Services, first formed a selection committee to find a replacement for Jacobsen, but were unsuccessful. There were several applicants who were either turned down or declined the position because the stipend was less than requested.
The selection committee suggested the work group concept when a suitable replacement director could not be found. The model, where a group of faculty runs a department instead of a department chair, is based on examples set by interdisciplinary programs on other campuses.
Seven members of the Advisory Board then offered to participate in the work group and handle individual elements of the director's responsibilities.
Vice Provost Dr. Paul Reichardt refused to comment on salary details, but said that Jacobsen's director stipend had "advanced considerably" since she took over the position in Fall 2000.
Reichardt added that each member of the WMS work group will receive travel funds to be used for educational development, including presenting WMS-related papers out of state and attending conferences to better the program.
"Anytime there's change, there's always some unease about how things will work out," said Ann Dollins, the Associate Dean of Nursing Administration.
The seven work group members come from a variety of areas- from Nursing and Health Care to Sociology, to the Dean of the College of Business. Most have been a part of the program for years.
"The Women's Studies program is so important to the members on the committee," said Dollins. "We will make it work."
Jacobsen said the work group was a "creative solution to the problem" and pointed out that Women's Studies "has traditionally been communal." But she said she thought it would be better to have a daily director. She was concerned that things like conferences with the lecturers and observing classes will no longer occur without a single head running the program.

Tore-up from the floor-up.
Bull Dyke Moo.
I hope that biatch does time for this...although she'd probably fit in perfectly in the cell block.
My favorite author happens to be a Brit. Do you suppose she's ever even uttered the name G. K. Chesterton in her classes or cited a G. K. quote like "I have little doubt that when St. George had killed the dragon he was heartily afraid of the princess." - (The Victorian Age in Literature)?
Here is the email I sent her:
I am glad to see your understanding of what the First Amendment protects. Now, I feel fully justified in setting your classroom on fire as a protest to your protest.
As a college professor, I would have expected you to have fully functioning reading comprehension. In case you haven't read it recently, here is the First Amendment in its entirety:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Now, where does it say that you are allowed to destroy other peoples property in the exercise of your free speech?
And I am sure the parents who are paying for their childerens education are excited to see what type of teacher they have now.
She's also a member of this mob: http://www.prout.org/index.html.
Looks like that fat old broad won't need to worry about needing an abortion any time soon. But Liberalism is a religion and abortion, feminism, socialism, and evironmentalism are its sacraments, so they are doing what fundamentalist Muslims do when challenged. They destroy, rather than debate.
Dr. Sally needs the door to her office torn down. After all it's free speech.
Vandalism is not free speech. She should be fired, prosecuted and sued.
Man-hating lesbian tub-o-lards.
Militant radical man and life-hating feminism at work.
Radical feminism is the worst thing in the world.
Indeed....it looks like she and the vast majority of her followers would have tremendous difficulty getting knocked up by anything short of a fifth of Jack and a turkey baster.
