From the website of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education:
ST. PAUL, Minn., October 10, 2007—Hamline University has suspended a student after he sent an e-mail suggesting that the Virginia Tech massacre might have been stopped if students had been allowed to carry concealed weapons on campus. Student Troy Scheffler is now required to undergo a mandatory "mental health evaluation" before being allowed to return to school. Scheffler, who was suspended without due process just two days after sending the e-mail, has turned to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.
"Hamline’s punishment of Troy Scheffler is severe, unfair, and apparently unwarranted," FIRE President Greg Lukianoff said. "Peacefully advocating for students’ ability to carry a concealed weapon as a response to the Virginia Tech shootings may be controversial, but it simply does not justify ordering a mandatory psychological evaluation."
Freedom of expression and academic freedom are phrases that ring hollow on American college campuses any more, it seems.
