College protesters seeking to avoid consequences for their actions demand amnesty

Leave it to the left to always find a way to avoid being held responsible for their actions.

Amid the chaos on college campuses across America caused by antisemitic protests, students and professors are demanding amnesty as the school year comes to a close — many professors are standing with students in the Occupy-style protests.

BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA, UNITED STATES - 2024/04/25: Dozens of people are arrested by the Indiana State Police riot squad during a pro-Palestinian protest on campus. The protesters had set up a tent camp in Dunn Meadow at 11 a.m. and police told them to take down the tents, or they would clear the area by force and arrest anybody who didn't leave.

Law enforcement has taken a more aggressive approach on some campuses, arresting pro-Palestine protesters who refuse to comply with orders to end encampments. A few universities have resorted to suspending students for violating school policies. Par for the course, the radical activists want to avoid any consequences for their actions.

“For many, final exams, financial aid, and even graduation are on the line, and their plight has become a central part of the protests. Students and professors alike have demanded amnesty.” Fox News reported.

At issue is whether universities and law enforcement will clear the charges and withhold other consequences, or whether the suspensions and legal records will follow students into their adult lives.

Terms of the suspensions vary from campus to campus. What started at Columbia has turned into a nationwide showdown between students and administrators over protests and the limits of free speech. In the past 10 days, hundreds of students have been arrested, suspended, put on probation and, in rare cases, expelled from colleges including Yale University, the University of Southern California, Vanderbilt University and the University of Minnesota.

 

Citing interviews and reporting from the campus newspaper, the Associated Press reported that Barnard, a women’s liberal arts college at Columbia, suspended more than 50 students who were arrested on April 18 and evicted them from campus housing.

And now those who prevented Jewish students from attending class want a pass for their hate.
