On April 12, Sally Jacobsen, a tenured professor at Northern Kentucky University, gathered a handful of her graduate students during a break in her lecture to demolish a pro-life display on campus. Miss Jacobsen was angered when the newly formed Northern Right to Life group created a campus-approved exhibit which included approximately 400 small white crosses meant to represent a cemetery for aborted fetuses. The exhibit was accompanied by a sign explaining the demonstration. Miss Jacobsen was photographed stomping on and destroying that sign, and she, along with the students whom she incited to destruction of property, ripped up, destroyed and threw away each cross.

But it does send a msg to those who are not close to getting to retire or can't afford to retire !!!!
Isn't that a crime to destroy property like she did. And if it's an approved exhibit, shouldn't the school do more to punish her for her criminal act?
Seems like a good attorney could have a field-day against this liberal twit of a professor and the university that employed her.
It's a factual contest for damages, IMHO.
The way I read this, officially there was NO PUNISHMENT.
This all started with giving them the right to vote and own property.
According to a cached version of the "professor's" former webpage, this is her e-mail address if you want to tell her how you feel about her destroying the project: firstname.lastname@example.org
Whoever decided this was the new fashion has a pretty sick sense of humor. I'd seen them before in bad dreams and horror movies in which sinister circus characters were doing the Devil's work.
Someone needs to tell the emperor and empress that their new shoes look freaking ridiculous!
I like girls in boots...
