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 universitys 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.
Shorts 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.
Watch a video of the alleged assault:
I guess they couldn't read the sign...................
We used to call this being 'bossy'.
From the looks of those ‘women’ they will never, ever have need of an abortion......................
The 16 year old girl has more guts than most of our elected officials...combined
Miller-Young is a real piece of work, an associate prof of porn.

Liberals don’t like truth. It makes them look bad.
Professor Miller-Young is pregnant.
Imagine that, how unusual...
I kind of thought this teacher would be getting some sort of a reward.
So if you have a disagreement with this "professor," you can physically confront her and she's ok with it.
Liberals preach tolerance but when they are in power they have none.
Looks like YouTube pulled the video, or the Gubmint which apparently now has the right to pull down video it deems offensive.
Since the attack involved an under-age victim, why wasn’t the professor charged with felony child abuse?
Must have been invitro.................
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?
Truth is an affront to the “father” of their ideology.
She’s getting the obligatory ‘wrist slap’......................
Wanna bet the screaming fang-tooth feminazi never us convicted?
She could win a Roseanne Barr look-a-like contest..................
I dunno. Might go to a yiffer meet as an elephant seal.
The confrontation took place in the universitys designated free speech area.
The whole country is a “free speech area”. Damn them and their pathetic little school.
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.
Everyone should be just so proud. Three debits to academia in one.
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.
Don’t despair, we’re going to give control to the UN - so that’ll fix everything.
This lady makes 124,750.04 in 2012 per this website.
“A Taste for Brown Sugar: The History of Black Women in American Pornography.”
I’m currently trying to develop a study intent for Ph.D research. Being a middle-aged white guy, I have to come up with a dissertation topic that’s actually useful.
What kind of porn is she associated with? Pornography for the blind?
Typical liberal 'Blame-the-victim' mentality...................
Associate professor of porn.... Remind me again why the UCal tuition rates keep going up?
....or of the 'Just till they need glasses' type..................
“Typical liberal ‘Blame-the-victim’ mentality...................”
Also typical liberal academic curtailing critical thought.
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.
Make that school rue the day they hired that commie bitch!
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.
Little wonder that graduates have trouble finding jobs, especially in liberal arts fields.
She’s pregnant?Alcohol makes things like that happen.
Free speech for me, but not for thee...................
Yeah, those drunk turkey basters will go after anything...
These pro life kids should pack a few cans of bear spray for protection against beasts like this whore and her minions. It comes in a large can, shoots a burst up to 30 feet and will put a grizzer on the run.
hope the university fires her b/c of the seriousness of the charges. /nosarc
there will be both.
Don’t yhou find it more than slightly ironic that a university would restrict free speech to a specific area? I thought only Fascists and Communists did that. . Hmmmm
These rules are putin (sic) place by the same people who used ‘free speech’ to get where they are today on College campuses...............
LOL.. Red, you are prophetic, but with nefarious intents, with you use of double entendre.. I love it.. :)
I used to think that too,then I saw that Honey Boo-Boo show.
~Little wonder that graduates have trouble finding jobs, especially in liberal arts fields.~
But it makes them ‘intellectuals’.
"Feminist Studies" - now there's a degree and field of study that can take you places!
Empirical proof that primates can impregnate humans?
