You think kids should be expelled for turning their back on a speaker and chanting?
Incidents like the one referenced, and perhaps more on point in a thread and forum discussing violence on campus, the recent clash at Berkley, make me fear we are entering a stage where that is no longer the case.
In a statement Thursday, police acknowledged that video of the incident, captured by onlookers and posted on social media, helped them identify Clanton as the suspect behind “several violent assaults” that happened April 15 during the demonstration at Civic Center Park on Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
Police confirmed Clanton can be seen in videos hitting people in the head with a U-shaped bicycle lock. Three people received “significant injuries” because of the beatings, police said. Homicide detectives handled the investigation because of the seriousness of the assaults, police said. Investigators served warrants Wednesday at unspecified addresses in San Leandro and Oakland, the latter of which is where authorities took Clanton into custody.

Middlebury College announced on Tuesday that it has completed the process of sanctioning students who participated in the disruptions of Charles Murray's lecture. According to the school, 67 students have been disciplined for their roles in the protest that obstructed Murray's speech, but the police department failed to identify any specific individuals responsible for putting a professor in a neck brace.....
The punishments were characterized by former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, an alumnus of Middlebury, as a slap on the wrist. "Middlebury slaps everybody on the wrist. A letter in the files. No one IDd who engaged in violence. The mob wins," he tweeted in response to the news. Given the severity of the disruption, which put Professor Allison Stanger in the hospital with a neck brace, many observers hoped those responsible would, at the very least, face harsher punishments such as suspensions or expulsions.
