Evergreen State Finally Tells Students Some of Their Actions Were Criminal

Too little, too late?

The question now is whether any of the students will be punished for their criminal actions. We’re not holding our breath.

The College Fix reported:

Evergreen State finally tells protesters–two months after melee–their actions were ‘criminal’

A memo emailed Friday from an Evergreen State College administrator to students warned them that aggressively cornering and shouting down faculty, staff and peers and blocking campus exits is actually illegal and future occurrences could result in criminal charges.

The written warning came some two months after a large cadre of campus activists stormed the halls of the progressive Washington campus in May, aggressively accusing several campus leaders of racism and apathy and demanding concessions for the alleged oppression they’ve faced.

The memo, written by Vice President for Student Affairs Wendy Endress, comes as Evergreen’s President George Bridges acknowledges the school has seen a drop in enrollment and the public institution faces pressure from state lawmakers to clean up its act.

The July 14 memo cites two specific incidents it described as the “greatest concern”:

On May 23 a sizable group approached the classroom where faculty member Bret Weinstein was leading his academic program, Hacking Human Nature. The group interrupted the program and others held in the same building, shouted for Weinstein to resign, and blocked Evergreen law enforcement officers who were responding to a call about the situation.

On May 24 some Evergreen employees working in the Library felt trapped in the building due to protestors blocking exits and office doors; some employees reported being stopped in the parking lot and on the roadway, questioned, and detained in their vehicles; and more than one individual reported being followed and their freedom of movement hindered.

Comments

Too bad the college didn’t also note that forcing white students & employees from campus, barring them from meetings and forbidding them from speaking because they are white is also a violation of the law.

No cookies and milk for two days.

“….and blocking campus exits is actually illegal and future occurrences could result in criminal charges.”
COULD.
No doubt, they must be shaking in their Uggs, while they are sipping their Starbucks,

The question now is whether any of the students will be punished for their criminal actions

This means that the answer is “no”—

is actually illegal and future occurrences could result in criminal charges.

Last time I checked, I didn’t see any coverage of this in the Puget Sound press. Typical – the progressive media tacitly support the illegal behavior of the mob at Evergreen.

I’m surprised that the school hasn’t faced a bunch of lawsuits due to the inaction of the Evergreen administration, usually there is strong protection for school faculty in their union contracts.

The obvious was not done. First, not firing the president of the college – which should have been FIRST as he is the one who allowed this event to evolve into multiple criminal events, and para-military type vigilante acts on campus (i.e. walking the campus with baseball bats to intimidate and threaten).

Second, they did NOTING to call out the blatant, criminal racist acts of the group that instigated this nightmare and failed to state in no unequivocal terms that asking anyone or any race/creed/religion, etc. to LEAVE (even “voluntarily leave”) anyplace is a criminal violation of the Civil Rights Act as well as their own so-called college policies on “inclusion” etc.
