UC-Santa Barbara feminist professor charged in confrontation with pro-life teen
Fox News ^ | 22 Mar 2014

Posted on 03/22/2014 11:06:36 AM PDT by mandaladon

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl.

University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors.

Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older sister Joan, 21, and some other pro-life activists were holding signs and demonstrating in a free speech zone on the bucolic campus March 4 when Miller-Young, who also teaches courses on pornography, went berserk.

The sisters say they distributed nearly 1,000 informational pamphlets during the event, which was organized by the Riverside-based nonprofit Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. Things took an unexpected turn when, according to Short, Miller-Young approached the demonstrators and a group of students who had gathered.

“Before she grabbed the sign, she was mocking me and talking over me in front of the students, saying that she was twice as old as me and had three degrees, so they should listen to her and not me,” Thrin Short wrote in an email to FoxNews.com. “Then she started the chant with the students about ‘tear down the sign.’ When that died out, she grabbed the sign.”

With a graphic anti-abortion sign in hand, Miller-Young, whose faculty web page says she specializes in black cultural studies and pornography, then allegedly walked through two campus buildings as Short, her sister and two UCSB students followed closely behind.

I know there is a connection there but I am having problems visualizing it.

Question: How many academic degrees does a college professor need to have enough sense to avoid criminal charges of theft, battery and vandalism when confronted by opposing views?

Answer: Apparently more than three.

In a “free speech zone”, no less!!!

I guess we’ll have to establish another “free speech zone” within the “free speech zone”.

Or maybe she was misunderstood — she was flirting with the young lass. Yeah, that’s it. Besides, she has tenure...

Regarding the ‘graphic’ nature of the photos on the sign that the girls had, one would have to go very close to see the ‘offensive’ image. The illustrations seem to have been printed on ordinary letter-sized paper.

The offense was in the professor’s mind. Could she have been reliving and abortion or two that she had experienced?

...they distributed nearly 1,000 informational pamphlets during the event, which was organized by the Riverside-based nonprofit Survivors of the Abortion HolocaustI like it. The next time I meet a young, skull-full-of-mush college kid I may have to mention to them how lucky they are to be a Holocaust survivor.

..."You're lucky to be a Holocaust survivor"

What do you mean?

"Were you born after 1972?

"Yeah, why?"

"Then you're most definitely a Holocaust survivor", you weren't aborted""

24. Feminism was established as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.

When I went to college they didn’t teach pornography. We learned from smutty magazine racks if we were inclined to do that thing.

Feminism is a self-selected group mental illness. It asserts that women are strong and capable, yet weak and vulnerable all at once. They’re survivors/victims.

It’s nuts and it sends the wrong message to girls and young women. At its heart are a group of wealthy women who wish they were the men they hate.

I cannot believe they just took their sign and walked off with it.

This case will be dropped despite the video and her obvious guilt.

Why? Well, don't forget this is California and this occurred on University of California campus. So what the authorities will do is pull an AG of Pennsylvania gambit, declare the video too heavily features a minority person, and decline to prosecute.

http://www.delcotimes.com/general-news/20140317/pa-attorney-general-kathleen-kane-says-about-8-took-20k-in-legislative-probe

So case dismissed, Prolifers banned from campus under trespass order. It will all be so beautiful and so perfectly Liberal.

*********************************
The professor/perp is pregnant (?!!) and is awaiting the results of an amnio and other chromosonal tests to decide whether to murder this child or not... she used the word “triggered” in her statement to the police. It is unknown if she has been pregnant in the past or how those pregnancies ended , however being a california based militant black womens studies prof with expertise in commercial sex I know how I would bet if I had to.
