    Professor Called Police After Student Presentation
    http://therecorderonline.net/2009/02/24/professor-called-police-after-student-presentation/?wtf

    For CCSU student John Wahlberg, a class presentation on campus violence turned into a confrontation with the campus police due to a complaint by the professor.

    On October 3, 2008, Wahlberg and two other classmates prepared to give an oral presentation for a Communication 140 class that was required to discuss a “relevant issue in the media”. Wahlberg and his group chose to discuss school violence due to recent events such as the Virginia Tech shootings that occurred in 2007.

    Shortly after his professor, Paula Anderson, filed a complaint with the CCSU Police against her student. During the presentation Wahlberg made the point that if students were permitted to conceal carry guns on campus, the violence could have been stopped earlier in many of these cases. He also touched on the controversial idea of free gun zones on college campuses.

    That night at work, Wahlberg received a message stating that the campus police “requested his presence”. Upon entering the police station, the officers began to list off firearms that were registered under his name, and questioned him about where he kept them.

    They told Wahlberg that they had received a complaint from his professor that his presentation was making students feel “scared and uncomfortable”.

    “I was a bit nervous when I walked into the police station,” Wahlberg said, “but I felt a general sense of disbelief once the officer actually began to list the firearms registered in my name. I was never worried however, because as a law-abiding gun owner, I have a thorough understanding of state gun laws as well as unwavering safety practices.”

    Professor Anderson refused to comment directly on the situation and deferred further comment.

    “It is also my responsibility as a teacher to protect the well being of our students, and the campus community at all times,” she wrote in a statement submitted to The Recorder. “As such, when deemed necessary because of any perceived risks, I seek guidance and consultation from the Chair of my Department, the Dean and any relevant University officials.”

    Wahlberg believes that her complaint was filed without good reason.

    “I don’t think that Professor Anderson was justified in calling the CCSU police over a clearly nonthreatening matter. Although the topic of discussion may have made a few individuals uncomfortable, there was no need to label me as a threat,” Wahlberg said in response. “The actions of Professor Anderson made me so uncomfortable, that I didn’t attend several classes. The only appropriate action taken by the Professor was to excuse my absences.”

    The university police were unavailable for comment.

    “If you can’t talk about the Second Amendment, what happened to the First Amendment?” asked Sara Adler, president of the Riflery and Marksmanship club on campus. “After all, a university campus is a place for the free and open exchange of ideas.”

    I believe some states have registered firearms. Don't hold me to this, though.

    Oh, and :ugh:

    Free gun zones? Where can I find one of these?

    Not all colleges have flunky mall ninja police, some actually have a real sworn police force. For example I've been pulled over off campus by campus police. They are actually nicer guys than the local cops too.


    I'll admit these cops sound like tards though ;)

    just a case of an anti covering her professional ass, and also knowingly making a spot of trouble/harassment for someone she personally disagrees with.

    no ethical integrity, but then I don't expect any from college professors anymore

    I think he should file a civil rights lawsuit against them. Not to gain money, but to send a clear message that they kind of nonsense will not be tolerated.

    yep, right back at ya prof.
    starts with a formal complaint to the University Senate and the Faculty Dean.

    and then a 1A lawsuit. Harassment works both ways.

    Perhaps the university will think twice about granting tenure to such a known troublemaker.



    hopefully this wont just go away quietly for this turd of a prof:

    The Art of Liberal Communication

    We have all seen the steps a Liberal uses to communicate a point:

    1. Make an unfounded statement.
    2. When challenged with facts on that statement, change the subject.
    3. When the subject can't be changed, insult the person counter arguing.
    4. If that fails, attempt to get the Police or Authorities involved, or stamp off in a huff.

    Formal complaint with the university, followed by retaining a lawyer and a civil rights lawsuit to follow for restriction of 1st Amendment rights.

    All this provided, of course, that the teacher didn't say he should avoid shit like that in his speech.
