Update: Feminist Professor Who Attacked Pro-Life Student Charged With Criminal Battery
The College Fix ^ | March 24, 2014 | Nathan Harden

Posted on 03/24/2014 9:01:11 AM PDT by grundle

The University of California-Santa Barbara professor who allegedly assaulted a pro-life student on campus has been charged with criminal battery.

The College Fix reported on March 12 that department of feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young, whose research emphasis is black studies, pornography, and sex work, had been caught on camera assaulting a 16-year-old student, Thrin Short.

Miller-Young led a small mob that approached a group of pro-life demonstrators who were holding signs. The mob chanted “tear down the sign.” Miller-Young then grabbed one of the signs and stormed off with it, eventually engaging in a physical altercation with 16-year-old Short, one of the pro-life demonstrators, when Short tried to retrieve the stolen sign.

The confrontation took place in the university’s designated “free speech area.”

The 3 by 5 foot sign contained graphic images of aborted fetuses as well as statistics and facts about abortion. The scuffle left the 16-year-old Short with visible scars and scratches on her arms.

Even though she injured the teenager, Miller-Young defended her actions and told police she felt morally justified. She told police that images of aborted fetuses “triggered” her to act the way she did, and that she felt she had set a good example for her students by physically confronting the teenage demonstrator.

Nevertheless, authorities warned that her actions constituted vandalism, battery, and robbery.

Late last week, Santa Barbara officials announced that Miller-Young is being prosecuted for misdemeanor theft, battery, and vandalism in connection with her assault on Ms. Short.

Short says Miller-Young pushed her at least three times, stole her sign, then grabbed and attempted to restrain her while others made off with the sign.

Short’s father told Fox News that he hopes the prosecution of Miller-Young will serve as a lesson for those who seek to halt free speech on campus. “She was free to engage in a rational dialogue with them,” Mr. Short said. “Instead, she chose to bully them, steal and destroy their property, and hit and scratch my daughter.”

“I think the goal of this prosecution should be to set a good example for her students, one that will not only deter her from repeating this conduct, but will also deter those who approve of her actions from imitating her appalling behavior,” Mr. Short added.

The mainstream media has chosen to ignore this true story, because it would rather make up false stories about tea party activists.

We used to call this being 'bossy'.

Miller-Young is a real piece of work, an associate prof of porn.

So if you have a disagreement with this "professor," you can physically confront her and she's ok with it.

Since the attack involved an under-age victim, why wasn’t the professor charged with felony child abuse?

The fact that this low IQ piece of excrement is a professor of anything is itself a crime.

Just remember the “college” that lowered its standards enough to allow professorship to someone who’d flunk a high school civics test. (That is, an old high school civics test...she’d get a 100 on a Common-rotten to the-Core test.)

Wanna bet she believes in glow-bull warming?

I read elsewhere that the professor in question was pregnant at the time of the assault. I wonder if she will still be pregnant at the time of her court appearance, or if that inconvenience will have been terminated.

I missed that the victim was 16. At least one of the two following this is coming to this benighted land:

1) Civil war

2) Overt totalitarian control.

The Father should sue the college and the prof for battery on a minor, child endangerment, false imprisonment, anything and everything a lawyer can dream up.

The judge will probably fine her a $100. The victim should sue for $10,000. In Portland, Oregon, a cop was successfully sued for “shoving” a lib protester out of a meeting. Time to return the favor.
