I’d like to remind everyone that, while suspected felons receive due process at Ohio State, according to Senior Vice President for Administration and Planning Jay Kasey, the same right is not extended to those who speak out of turn.
That said, Kasey further distinguished himself at last week’s protest when he waited until the faculty left to dishonor his agreements. He wasted no time wildly threatening the students with arrest and expulsion once they were alone. This was the act of a bully and a liar.
Protesters must scrupulously avoid mistreating staff members. Regarding the excuse that staff felt threatened, though, very few or no workers would be in a campus building overnight, and the students were displaying no hint of violence. It reeks of what it is: pretense.
I had no awareness of this issue until Kasey and his sullen Stalinists chose to threaten my fellow students. In a mood of solidarity with my beloved classmates and defiance of a rather laughable bully, I now must ask, “So, where IS that money going?”
