Assault charge filed against Mizzou professor who called for ‘some muscle’

A misdemeanor assault charge was filed Monday against a University of Missouri assistant professor who received nationwide attention when she called for “some muscle” to help remove a student journalist from a campus protest in November.

Melissa Click, who works in Missouri’s communication department, faces a Class C misdemeanor simple assault charge for the incident, in which she was filmed having physical contact and berating a student journalist, according to the office of Columbia, Mo., prosecutor Steve Richey. The student was trying to conduct interviews at a site set up on the university’s quad by students protesting the treatment of African Americans by administrators.

    I was going to suggest that all Universities be shut down till it dawned on me that it’d be better to leave them standing as a testament to a failed education system replete with hate filled irrationality and grotesque ignorance. Besides, it’s much more entertaining to see these new generation progressive woglodyte’s whip themselves and their retarded associates into a epileptic fit of politically correct, self righteous rage about everything they’re to stupid to properly comprehend.
