Following a special meeting of the University of Missouri Board of Curators, assistant communications professor Melissa Click, who went in search of “muscle” to enforce a “media free zone” set up by campus protesters, has been suspended pending further investigation.

The Mizzou journalism school’s executive committee had voted in November to remove Click’s courtesy title, and this Monday she was charged with third-degree assault, to which she pleaded not guilty on Tuesday.

FOX 4 News reports tonight that the board’s general counsel will conduct an investigation and collaborate with the city attorney in Columbia before making a final decision regarding Click’s employment at the school.

Protests at the school erupted after Dr. Dale Brigham refused to cancel an exam for students who said they feared for their lives due to online threats warning minorities not to step on campus the following day.

    Since she’s been charged, she can be suspended. They won’t be able to fire her unless she’s convicted and even then, she’ll sue for wrongful dismissal.
    You wonder why she’d be so bold to threaten someone with violence on campus and right on camera? That’s why.

    Three months and a criminal charge for recommended prosecution later — she finally gets suspended from her non-tenured courtesy appointment assistant professor position, which is literally tantamount to a Temp-Job to begin with.

    See? America’s Schools Are Tools. Clearly demonstrates just how much our institutions of higher learning actually care about the ‘physical and mental safety’ of their precious defenseless snowflake students and campus’ in general where the rubber meets the road.

    Nope – they’re actually political indoctrination and social construct brainwashing stations, and they have been for long time.

    This is whats lurking in college classrooms brainwashing our kids to reject the lessons learned in the home in the previous 18 years. Teach your children well. Teach them to identify these lib teachers when they come across them and teach them to laugh at them.

    Velma had nice cartoon cans…but I know that the dirtbag hippie had hit greasy mitts all over them, and that just ruins her for me.

    The University of Missouri, a once fine institution is now full of professors, students & administrators who ought to be institutionalized. Pathetic and I am a Missouri resident who once respected what has become a day care center for adults

    Typical progressive beauty…

  • JLM

    And that’s her good side.

    Don’t just suspend her. Fire her fiery ass, so it doesn’t happen again. I heard one of her classes was “The Fifty Shades of Grey”. Nice educational tool for college students. NOT!!!!!!!
