  • Man arrested on suspicion of abusing Hickman student

    11/29/2015 10:42:48 AM PST · by Impala64ssa · 40 replies
    Columbia police on Wednesday arrested a 53-year-old man who allegedly pulled a teenage family member out of Hickman High School by her hair and slapped her. Police re-sponded at 3 p.m. Tuesday to the school, 1104 N. Providence Road, for a child abuse call, Officer Latisha Stroer said in an email. Youssif Z. Omar was at the school and noticed a 14-year-old female family member was not wearing a hijab, a traditional headscarf that some Muslim women wear. Omar became irate, Stroer said, grabbed the girl “very violently by the hair” and pulled her outside and down a flight of...

    Youssif Zaghwani Omar, an assistant professor at the University of Missouri, was arrested on suspicion of child abuse this past week for “allegedly grabbing a 14-year-old female relative by the hair and dragging her into a car after he noticed she wasn’t wearing a hijab.” Omar was at a local high school when he saw the girl without the Muslim headscarf. The Daily Mail reports: Officer Latisha Stroer told the Columbia Tribune in an email that Omar grabbed the girl ‘very violently by the hair’.

    This is a big part of what the University of Missouri and copycat racist crybully protests were about. Making racist indoctrination mandatory on campus not only provides jobs and entitlements for the crybullies, but perpetuates the cycle. They got their way at the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan has added a three-year diversity requirement to its Ross School of Business undergraduate curriculum that, among other things, will teach their students how race, gender and sexual orientation "connect to larger systems of power, privilege and oppression." The classes, which include "Identity 101" and "Entering into, Engaging with and Exiting...

    The racially charged protests that have roiled 23 universities from Yale to the University of Missouri in recent weeks reached Princeton on Wednesday. Members of the Black Justice League left their classes and occupied historic Nassau Hall, which houses the Princeton administration's offices. They demanded that officials acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson - who was president of Princeton before becoming president of the United States and expunge his name from anything named after him. They further demanded "cultural competency training" for anyone teaching at Princeton, courses on the "history of marginalized people," and a designated public space for...

    Now that the adults have cleared out of their prestigious presidencies and chancellorships at the University of Missouri, the Thought Police are coming out everywhere on campus in full array, complete with fancy titles, academic regalia and the usual meaningless catchphrases of the day. For example, Mizzou is getting its first vice chancellor for inclusion, diversity and equity, whatever those words now mean. This much is clear: They don't mean what they ostensibly say. Nor for anyone of a conservative bent who hasn't yet learned to keep his mouth shut and go along with exclusion, conformity and anything but a...

    Black Lives Matter activists are very upset about recent events in Paris, and have been taking to Twitter to voice their displeasure.They’re upset because the Islamic State succeeded in stealing the spotlight from their important movement — just as it was gaining traction.Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos captured some of the tweets, notinv that they “fell broadly into two categories of stupid” Friday night: Paris and Mizzou are equivalent: both represent “terrorism.” (This is the message from Black Lives Matter.)White people are “erasing black lives” by focusing on Paris. (This is the language of the racial grievance-fuelled campus social justice movement.) There are more tweets...

    It seems that Missouri is the state for mob rule. Last year, America witnessed a breakdown of order in Ferguson following the death of African American teenager Michael Brown. Even though the Justice Department exonerated Darren Wilson, the white police officer involved in the shooting of Brown, protesters still maintained the fiction that Brown was ruthlessly killed in a racist manner. They repeated the false mantra, "hands up, don't shoot," even though witnesses say that Brown never uttered those words. Instead, he attacked Wilson shortly after the officer asked Brown to move out of the middle of the street. Protesters...

Her poem was about racism. Similarly, in our community, the University of Colorado has a long history of discrimination against people with lived experience of recovery from mental health labels.

Donley’s claim, which was later expanded to include allegations that the swastika was drawn with human feces, ignited a racial firestorm that eventually led to the resignations of Mizzou’s top two university administrators.Unfortunately, there’s no publicly available evidence that this incident ever occurred.By all accounts, Donley, a class of 2018 undergraduate student who serves as the president of the Mizzou Residence Halls Association (RHA), was the first person...

    COLUMBIA, MO. - Melissa Click shut herself in her university office on Tuesday afternoon, and sobbing could be heard through the door.A day earlier, the assistant communications professor at the University of Missouri had helped lead a multitude of activists forming a circle encompassing hundreds of yards to block reporters from an encampment on Mizzou’s Carnahan Quadrangle, following the resignation of University of Missouri System President Timothy M. Wolfe.A video that went viral Monday evening showed Click calling out for "muscle" to help remove a student journalist from the area. The video sparked a national wave of criticism against Click...

    I can't even bring myself to pretend anymore; progressives are simply wastes of human flesh. They're spoiled rotten scum, and I mean that with all due respect. And by all due respect I mean none, since they are worthy of none. The bed-wetters currently drum-circling and camping in the quad at the University of Missouri should be expelled. The football players who threatened not to play their game this weekend should have their scholarships revoked. The coaches who supported them should be fired. The faculty who aided these mutants should be unemployable for the rest of their lives. This childish...

    An innocent man lost his job. Racial tensions are at an all time high. Faculty members refuse to acknowledge students' First Amendment rights. Campus authorities are policing speech. This is my reality as a student at the University of Missouri. I believe in liberty for all people, but the current climate on campus runs counter to that. Some friends tell me they are afraid to voice their opinions lest they come under fire from the administration or peers - or the police. The University of Missouri police department sent an email urging students to report offensive or hurtful speech -...

    To Create "Hostile" Atmosphere Brenda Smith-Lezama, vice president of the Missouri Students Association, appeared on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon to express her disdain at people using their First Amendment rights to create a "hostile" and "unsafe" learning environment. Smith-Lezama advocated for a safe space for "healing" rather than "experiencing a lot of hate." MSNBC host Thomas Roberts asked Smith-Lezama to respond to a professor who "complained" universities are becoming intolerant of opposing views. "One professor complained universities are becoming places of prohibition," Roberts said. "What's your feeling? Do you believe that's a place we are heading for American campuses now? "...

    Much like the lie known as “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” rumors and unsubstantiated allegations continue to flow freely on the University of Missouri campus, with some of the worst of it coming from student body president Payton Head. Head, who had previously claimed he was called the “n-word” from a passing pickup truck — one of the actions that led to the school’s president, Tim Wolfe, resigning on Monday — was at it again on Tuesday. This time, he took to social media to warn students about the KKK being on campus, according to Twitchy.com: There’s only one small problem...

    COLUMBIA-- MU faculty member Melissa Click and MU staff member Janna Basler have apologized. And Tuesday night, Click resigned her courtesy appointment with the Missouri School of Journalism. Click was caught up in an incident Monday between a freelance photographer and protesters near the Concerned Student 1950 camp on Mel Carnahan Quadrangle. "Yesterday was an historic day at MU -- full of emotion and confusion. I have reviewed and reflected upon the video of me that is circulating, and have written this statement to offer both apology and context for my actions," Click, an assistant professor in the Department of...

    Free speech advocates are expressing concern that instructions from University of Missouri police on how students should report "hateful and/or hurtful" speech could stifle legitimate differences of opinion. [...] The university's student conduct code prohibits harassment, which it defines as "unwelcome verbal or physical conduct" against "actual or perceived membership in a protected class ... that creates a hostile environment." The conduct code also forbids bullying, retaliation and threatening or intimidating behaviors. The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri responded with a statement calling for the university to not compromise the right to free expression in its efforts to fight...

    Via Campus Reform, Melissa Click somehow remains a faculty member in good standing while Dale Brigham is packing his bags.Which makes sense, come to think of it. Who’s more in tune with the zeitgeist at Mizzou, Click or this guy? Dr. Dale Brigham, considered one of the most beloved professors at the University of Missouri, has been forced to resign after initially refusing to cancel an exam for students who claimed to feel “unsafe.”"If you don't feel safe coming to class, then don’t come to class," Dr. Brigham told his students. "I will be there, and there will be...

    No evidence has yet surfaced that a Nazi symbol made of human feces was left on campus at Missouri, less still that it was a racially-charged statement.It seems more likely that the swastika is a hoax, just as – whisper it – so many other high-profile black victims on American campuses celebrated endlessly by progressive journalists turn out to be mendacious frauds.But “facts” haven’t stopped students, and even some idiotic professors, from hurling themselves into grievance-fuelled hysteria on campuses all over the country, even at Yale. Such are the levels of hysteria following this fecal fabrication that Mizzou students hallucinated the KKK into existence yesterday.Missouri’s poop swastika...
