Univ. Prof. Arrested for Bullying Pro-life Students

Laura Curry, professor of media studies, went ballistic on the Students for Life club of the University at Buffalo (New York) who were given permission for a pro-life exhibit with graphic abortion images.  Curry was one of several professors protesting the display, but was the only one arrested for disorderly conduct, which included f-bomb swearing at the students.
“Where does it say I can't use the f**k word in public? I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.”
-- Laura Curry, to the police

-- From "Laura Curry, University At Buffalo Professor, Arrested For Profanity-Laced Tirade Over Pro-Life Display" by Will Wrigley, The Huffington Post 4/17/13

. . . When confronted by police officers over [Curry's] use of profanity, she claimed that her tirade was just as profane as the [pro-life] display . . .

Curry argued with police and claimed that her use of profane language was protected under the First Amendment.

However, after over two minutes of arguing, police put cuffs on her wrists and escorted her away from the display.

John DellaContrada, the assistant vice president for media relations at the University at Buffalo [said] . . . "it is a fundamental value of UB that all members of the campus community and their invited guests have a right to peacefully express their views and opinions," including the right of "protesters to oppose the views or opinions of others." But, he added, that did not include ways that would "limit or prevent the speaker's freedom of expression or interfere with university operations."

 From "Professors Compare Pro-Life Students to Lynch Mob" by Todd Starnes, Foxnews.com 4/17/13

The professors were outraged after the Students for Life club received permission to display a pro-life exhibit that included graphic images of abortion victims along with Holocaust victims and victims of lynching.

A half dozen history professors condemned the display in a letter to the student newspaper.

“Anti-abortion protesters appear to have a lot in common with those who supported lynching,” they wrote in the school paper. “We feel it is imperative to speak out against this crass, uninformed and dangerous misuse of history.”

“Would you let my class know I’m under arrest,” she asked as officers slapped a pair of handcuffs on the profane professor and carted her off to jail.

Pro-Life students were also targeted by their peers. Their photos were posted on signs that were labeled “Indecency, Ignorance, Intolerance.”

From "University at Buffalo Professor Arrested After Profane Rant Against Student Anti-Abortion Display" by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post Reporter 4/18/13

[Students for Life President Christian Andzel said,] "It is absolutely shameful for the paid professionals at the University at Buffalo to insinuate that anti-abortionists 'appear to have a lot in common with those who supported lynching.' As a student in the history department and President of the Pro-Life club on campus, not only am I ashamed and appalled that my professors twisted our message to suit their point of view, but I am offended due to their false characterization of our argument. We were citing the history of oppression and voicelessness of the victims who deserved human rights and justice."
