“Students and maintenance employees washed away the chalkings”
This happened at Western Washington University. Will the employees who participated be disciplined?
The College Fix reports:
Students and university employees tag-team to vandalize pro-life messages by students
Western Washington University assured a campus pro-life group that it’s free to chalk messages on campus – as long as they don’t constitute “hate speech.”
The confusing message from a campus official, which included a reference to “triggering” chalkings, followed the vandalism of Students for Life’s scrawled messages in Red Square earlier this month.
Students and maintenance employees washed away the chalkings, which included messages such as “Pregnant? Need help?” and “Love them both,” on two separate occasions less than a day apart, Students for Life of America said Wedneesday.
The university did not respond to College Fix email and phone queries Thursday about its knowledge of the students who first erased the chalkings, why it directed university staff to erase them later, whether the chalking violates the Student Conduct Code, how much it knew about the content of the chalking, how it responds to complaints about chalking in general, and how its action squares with the First Amendment.
Though SFLA told The Fix it gave its video footage to campus police several days ago, campus police told The Fix they could not find any standing investigation within the last month regarding pro-life chalk messages.
