Police at Bridgewater State University are looking for a woman who allegedly punched a student journalist in the face for her pro-gay marriage editorial.
Meanwhile, the school is rallying behind the writer, Destinie Mogg-Barkalow, and is planning a rally on campus on Tuesday.
Mogg-Barkalow has been writing for the student newspaper, The Comment, since September. She penned a piece for this weeks edition titled Prop 8 generates more hate, in which she called out supporters of a ban on gay marriage in California as intolerant and bigoted. On Feb. 8, a federal appeals court declared the ban unconstitutional, saying it was a violation of the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples.
Mogg-Barkalow told police that she was walking in a campus parking lot shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday when she was approached by a tall man and a shorter woman with red hair who appeared to be fellow students.
The two asked Mogg-Barkalow, who was wearing a Comment sweatshirt at the time, if she wrote for the newspaper and if she wrote the pro-gay marriage editorial, campus police said. When she said yes, the woman punched her in the face, leaving a bruise, university spokesman Bryan Baldwin said.
Mogg-Barkalow, who is a lesbian, wrote in the editorial: I know how to run my life and I can love whomever I want.

“I know how to run my life and I can love whomever I want”
Good for you. Don’t expect us to destroy ancient traditions because of it.
Is there any difference between Brigewater State Collge and Bridgewater State Hospital?
The assault kinda proved her point.
Why of course she expects everybody to.
That’s my guess,too.....
She should save her punches for a really big fish.
We made her do it by ignoring her.
Probably a fraud.
“The assault kinda proved her point.”
If she is telling the truth about being assaulted-—and most of these recent types of “assaults” turn out to be self-inflicted. And if she did not bring the assault upon herself by intolerably obnoxious behavior on her part, she is still wrong because she uses the plural, supporters, when sh2 was struck by one individual.
I think that is supposed to be Messtinie Dogg-Barkalot.
I find it hard to believe that there were only 3 people on the grounds of the State School at the time. No one else saw the alleged “assault”. Leo’s should first look at the doorknob in her dorm room for dna evidence.
Apparently not a whole lot.
Yeah, it’s always fun when these so-called “victims” get hit with a False Reports charge.
Grab the popcorn.
Bridgeton police sketch artists have released the following physical description and advise that the suspect be approached with caution.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
