In my opinion, based on what I've read from a few law experts here there needs to be more clairty on this. I think it's going to require students who are expelled for non-threatening comments that others find offensive being taken through the courts.

It seems odd that there is a moving target for what is allowed, and we've seen tweets/SM posts by liberal students and teachers actually calling for violence and far worse than this bad joke and nothing happens to them.

Well, that's just absurd.

George Floyd was a scumbag home invader and addict. That's a fact. Stating facts is never wrong.

Depends on if they can construe it to be against the college's code of ethics.


Regardless, its a dumb kid repeating a meme... Give him a warning and discuss how in this day and age, what you say on social media can have real life consequence.

Boom... learning experience.

I remember when the Challenger blew up and the NASA Need Another Seven Astronauts joke was the rage. That was elementary school. Crazy to think college age kids today are so soft and mentally ill. They should in no way be catered to

lol...old joke.  I've actually made that joke before in a different context.

I was playing a gig a couple of weeks after Amy Winehouse died.  Someone in the crowd sent the band a round of drinks so between songs I thanked the people who sent the drinks up and said "here's a toast to Amy Winehouse.......congratulations on two weeks of sobriety!!....................  what.....too soon?"

He was bound to die by someone else’s hand and it should have been sooner. 
 

After learning what type of person he was, I think that cop should have crushed his skull.

A lot of schools have "outside of campus" code of conduct policies, but I wonder how they would stick if challenged in court, especially for a public university.

Im no lawyer so I have a question...if they drum up some reason to kick the kid out—say they decide what he said is “against their code of conduct”—wouldn’t that put them on the hook to explain why every student who ever said anything offensive online didn’t also get kicked out?  Seems to me like they’re stuck...if they boot him they’re opening themselves up to a huge lawsuit.
