On May 1 University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Student Government Association Senator Roderick King was caught on tape vandalizing a pro-life display of crosses commemorating children killed by abortion.
UWSP administration had given Pointers for Life authorization to display the exhibit. This didn’t deter King from destroying it, nor did knock-kneed campus police….
6 days later the UWSP administration issued a statement that “[u]niversity procedures are being followed” for discipline but it couldn’t say what. And what about King’s leadership position on UWSP’s SGA? How could the SGA possibly retain him when he defied not only university policy but the rule of law against destroying property? When I wrote my 1st post on this disgrace on May 7, the UWSP SGA had not disciplined or removed King – almost a week after the spectacle.
Today reader Marc sent me the following email exchange he had with SGA Senator Claire Smith that gives a good idea of the “discipline” SGA meted King – likely an “adda boy.”
Smith has a high threshhold for violence, considering King’s actions of pulling and throwing crosses from the ground nonviolent.
Smith also considered King “in the right” and PFL at fault for King’s temper tantrum due to an unnamed “technicality.”
So I expect SGA members to be meeting up at some local bar tonight to celebrate King’s boorish behavior. What punks… some of whom wouldn’t even be here today if not for pro-lifers. And what a school. Click to enlarge:
