Mizzou Has Lost Its Mind -- Now the Police Are Asking Students to Report ‘Hurtful’ Speech

by David French

So, this just happened:

How generous of campus police to note that “hateful and hurtful speech are not crimes,” but — no — MU’s “Office of Student Conduct” cannot lawfully take disciplinary action against First Amendment-protected speech, even if a student or faculty member claims hurt feelings.

In times like these I sometimes wish I was still litigating First Amendment cases. The university is acting as if the law doesn’t exist — as if it can set its own revolutionary rules. It’s one lawsuit away from a rude — and expensive — awakening.

The Corner

The one and only.
