    *** kind of law is that? If you are charged with that, are the arresting officers wearing jackboots and/or screaming about your "papers"?

    So the Oregon police are authorized to confiscate fashion accessories? :what:
    And who decides what a "fashion accessory" is? :scrutiny:

    I went to a boarding school about 10 years ago and routinely kept spent shell casings on my desk as decoration. Never had anyone say a word.

    Sounds like this schol in Colorado needs a multi-million dollar lesson in respecting people's right to free speech.

    What ever happenned to college being an open "marketplace of ideas?" I get hammered down consistently when I try to impart some logical rationality into my more liberal classrooms where I go to school. Apparently now I can expect to be arrested when I have a dissenting or otherwise different view...

    That is insane.
    Not agreeing with this fellow's comments/sympathy's but still.
    Next thing you know they will start arresting the few pro gunners there are on campus when during the course of the same VT discussions we refuse to blame the guns or disagree with the majority/liberal professor.


    Perhaps in this instance all that was needed as a referal to a counselor. To arrest him is quite the overreaction even in light of VT.

    He is just being an asshat with stupid comment. Last time I checked, stupidity isn't a crime, although it should be, but IT IS NOT!!!!
