Evergreen College in Washington state used thousands of dollars of public school funds to bus people 178 miles to terrorize a farm that had an employee die. The “college” (environmental terrorist) wrongly claimed that a farm’s working conditions caused the death, later determined to be natural. The college now wishes to offer an apology to the public from which it stole the money and to the farm that had to deal with terrorizing demonstrations. In any other situation, jail would be appropriate and jail should be the remedy here along with restitution. The college, who knew at the time of the demonstrations that they were illegally using public money, wants us to trust that they handled the situation internally. After all, the faculty thieves were given a strong “reprimand.” A strong “don’t do it again, oh no, the theft was okay, but don’t get caught again.”
The liberal intellectually superior collegiate ilk feel that their superiority should bar them from the same rules that we mortals must live by. If this was a conservative institution it would be demanded that people lose their jobs and people go to jail. The money must be paid back.
