Heather Mac Donald was scheduled to give a speech at Claremont College on why the police should be supported.
However, members of Black Lives Matter were determined to deny her right to free speech and the right of other students to hear her opinion.
Sure enough. On the night that Mac Donald was scheduled to speak some 250 protesters blocked those wanting to hear Ms. Mac Donald chanting “black lives matter.”
According to The Washington Post blocking buildings on a California college campus is an offense subject to arrest, but college officials decided instead to give in to the rowdy minority that prevented others from hearing Ms. Mac Donald.
We jointly concluded that any forced interventions or arrests would have created unsafe conditions for students, faculty, staff, and guests,” Claremont McKenna College President Hiram E. Chodosh said Friday in a statement. “I take full responsibility for the decision to err on the side of these overriding safety considerations.
One has to wonder why U.S. colleges have allowed themselves to be run by gangs of hoodlums.
