Back in December, a student in Costa Mesa, California caught one of his teachers on tape calling President Trump’s victory in November an “act of terrorism.”

Well now he’s been suspended. From the OC Register:

Now, this…

 

The student, Caleb O’Neil has been suspended by the University and forced to write a letter of apology. Outrageous.

The OC Register reported:

An Orange Coast College student who secretly videotaped his instructor making anti-Trump statements was suspended from school and told to write a letter of apology as well as a three-page essay about the incident.

Caleb O’Neil filed an appeal Wednesday and spoke publicly at a news conference

The college suspended Caleb O’Neil for the current semester and the summer term, saying he violated a Coast Community College District policy prohibiting recording someone on district property without that person’s consent.

“It is my hope that this experience will lead you to truly think through your actions and the consequences of those actions when making decisions in the future,” Victoria Lugo, interim dean of students, wrote in a Feb. 9 letter to O’Neil, whose video clips of instructor Olga Perez Stable Cox in December went viral.

So let’s analyze.

It’s ok for a professor who is charged with educating our young adults to insult our president and those who support him while working but it is not ok for a student to capture those comments on video?

Give me a break. If this was my kid they’d have a summons and complaint being served as we speak.
