We covered this in an earlier post. How is this acceptable behavior for a professor?

Prof convicted of vandalizing home of NRA lobbyist

University of Nebraska, Lincoln professor Patricia Hill has been convicted of spraying fake blood on the home of NRA lobbyist Chris Cox and ordered to pay a $500 fine.

Hill, a research assistant professor in UNL’s Department of Sociology, and Amanda Gailey, an associate professor in the English Department, staged separate protests outside Cox’s Alexandria, Virginia home last month. Cox, a long-time NRA lobbyist, currently serves as the NRA’s chief political strategist and the Executive Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.

This is not the first time that Gailey made headlines over her political activism. In August of last year, the academic was involved in protesting a UNL student who was attempting to recruit new members for a conservative organization Turning Point USA.

According to The Washington Post, Gailey, along with former College of William and Mary visiting professor Catherine Koebel, carried provocative signs and distributed flyers outside of Cox’s home and his wife’s business in April, shortly after an anonymous group created a fake website for the business featuring photographs of dead bodies.

Gailey and Koebel insist that they were very careful to ensure that their protest actions stayed within the law, but Hill took the opposite approach, allegedly spraying Cox’s home with fake blood in October and then repeating the act of vandalism in January. The Cox family’s lawyer also reportedly claims that she attached stickers to their home.
