ABC News reports:

Universities provide mental health support to students during Derek Chauvin trial

Several universities and colleges across the country reached out to students to provide campus support and resources while deliberations were still ongoing in the Derek Chauvin trial.

Princeton University, Penn State, Syracuse, Boston University, Northwestern University, Grinnell College, Binghamton University and Columbia College Chicago are among the universities that have reached out to their student communities, listing mental health resources and virtual community spaces to help students and faculty process a trial that has sent shockwaves across the country.

Some universities, such as Princeton, are providing mental health hotlines and additional counseling services for students struggling as national conversation continues to focus on racial injustice and police brutality following the death of George Floyd, who died when former police officer Chauvin pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly 10 minutes during an arrest.

“As the trial of Derek Chauvin comes to a close, and as the nation continues to grapple with a spate of violence and killings over the last few weeks, Princeton is offering resources to the University community, including virtual spaces for processing and discussion,” the school said in a statement on their website. “Events such as these challenge us as a community, and also can take a toll on us as individuals. Please seek support if you need it, and offer the same to fellow community members.”

Why? Is every student now a softie?

Are they supporting students who don’t agree with the verdict???

They need to be deprogrammed, not counseled.

They should give each of these poor babies a woobie and sing “Soft Kitty” to them until they fall asleep. When did they decide to stop treating college students as adults? This goes along with Biden’s plan to save the poor babies from having to pay off their debts.

When I was a college student, we had to worry about real threats like getting drafted and having to get shot in an unpopular war. Some demonstrated about the war, but we didn’t have all this hand-holding.

“any man’s trial diminishes me, because I am involved in wokekind, and therefore never send to know for whom the gavel sounds; it sounds for me.”

🤮

Boo Hoo, poor snowflakes, What are you going to do when things et really tough?
