UNC Has Spent Nearly $400K Defending Confederate Statue From Protesters in Last Year

“would have covered tuition for roughly 43 in-state students or 11 out-of-state students”

Here’s a radical idea. Find out which students are causing this problem and bill them. Then make paying the bill a condition of their continued enrollment.

The Daily Caller reports:

UNC Has Spent Over $390,000 Defending Confederate Statue From Protesters

The University of North Carolina has paid police $390,000 to defend a Confederate statue from protesters between June 2017 and June 2018.

UNC spent an additional $3,000 to “clean the monument after vandalism during the fiscal year” in a report obtained by Chapelboro.com. The $393,000 spent would have covered tuition for roughly 43 in-state students or 11 out-of-state students.

A few hundred people protested the school’s Silent Sam statue in August after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., and a history Ph.D. student allegedly smeared the statue with her own blood and ink in April. The student, Maya Little, faces a fall court date.

UNC Chancellor Carol Folt wants to remove the statue, but believes that a 2015 North Carolina prohibits her from doing so.

Seventeen senior UNC faculty members threatened to tear the statue down themselves if the university did not take action.

Yes, bill them and kick them out if they deface it.

If you can’t find the perps, then add it to the tuition bill and clearly describe why the students are being charged for this.

Pocketbooks scream louder than social media freaks….

Uh OH! What do Oberlin, UNC, and Portland have in common? 🙁 Me. I’d include Balmer here as well, but their problems far exceed even my potential destructive powers. If I move somewhere else, I’ll give LI readers a heads-up so they can sell their property at that location. I did see a really cool house in Sedona with a rooftop observatory.
