Valdosta State Expulsion

FIRE has the story and of all the stories of censorship and violations of freedom of speech on college campuses, this one is by far the worst I have ever read. A student who was protesting the construction to two parking garages using student fees. T. Hayden Barnes had his mental health questioned, was followed around campus by plain clothes policemen and uniformed police.

Barnes was expelled all for peaceful protests. Raise you head and open your mouth and get slapped down.

Hopefully heads are going to roll at Valdosta State, starting with President Ronald Zaccari.
