I def agree with everything you mentioned about cancel culture except the "kids doing stupid shit"... they were grown men. It seemed like they might have learned and grew from this...it appears they were given second chances based on their linkedin pages.

Which is good.  There need's to be a road to redemption.  It's too simplistic and intellectually lazy to just root out something and brand that person for the rest of their days.  You want change?  Real change?  Start with one person.  Get them to change.  

EX.  Daryl Davis (as seen on the JRE).  Musician and blues player that personally "converted" more than 200 klansmen and former Nazis.  Just by talking to them.  Getting to know them, an visa versa.  It's a matter of time and effort.  Something in short supply these days.

Hopefully he learned from this mistake and turned things around.  Which is what bothers me so much about this cancel culture - no road to redemption.  Ever.  Many of these are just kids doing stupid shit.  At the perfect age to sit down with the aggrieved and listen to them.  Understand why this is so offensive.  Create allies, not enemies.  Do it offline.  No circus.  No social or conventional media.  

They aren't kids.  They can go to war and die for this country.   Stop calling young black men "thugs" and young men white saying racist things "kids."  


We all know exactly what you mean.

Excellent protest by the KSU players. Even if klanboy is protected, the group effort to keep the bright light on his racism is outstanding.

I also find the terms "cancel culture" and "virtue signaling" to be dog whistles.

Hardly is Klanboy student going to be cancelled for life. He may even end up being a Supreme Court Justice, or President, or King of Facebook.

Which is why you can’t go to the West Mall and yell “Die N’s, Die N’s”. This is the functional equivalent of that. Racists talk in coded language and that’s what a kid like this was doing. He can absolutely get kicked off campus and should. No Constitutional challenge will suffice.

You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Well, to someone like yourself, sure. The “1st amendment is absolute” is just the sort of ignorant analysis that breeds the current brand of stupidity in this country of which I know you subscribe.

The first amendment was never meant to be absolute and never has been.

Wrong on all counts.  I currently have three cases in federal court, am licensed in five, and clerked for a federal district court judge.

But let's get this straight, in your legal opinion, K State kicking that student out for that twitter post would not violate the First Amendment?

Look, if you haven’t dealt with these issues it’s easy to say “hate speech is totally allowed”. I get it, but you’re wrong. This type of speech given the context and again, using coded language, can be censored by a University. This isn’t difficult stuff, happens everyday in our educational institutions. Sometimes it’s an overstep, sometimes not. In this context they absolutely can expel him assuming they don’t violate any other rights he has.

I’ve dealt with school speech as a clerk and professionally in a pro bono case.  
 

You got a case core for coded hate speech exception for an off campus twitter joke when the student wasn’t even in school session and how this joke was even close?

To unpack this further, they did know one another and worked together.  Rumors were this cop was a giant ass to customers as well and Floyd called him out on it repeatedly.  If true, then not only is it not racially motivated, but you CAN argue for some measure of prejudice and malice.  

Getting off topic, but there’s no credible evidence at all that they had any previous interaction. They did work part-time security at the same place but there’s no evidence that they had ever met. Only one person ever said that they knew each other, and that guy retracted his story weeks ago, saying he had Floyd confused for a different black security guard. The owner of the club they worked at has no record of them working the same night.

I just heard as much (rumors, as stated) that they had worked together prior and these actions (the officer) were not unknown as he'd been a dick to patrons on multiple prior occasions and questioned whether that would come up in the trial?

Your thinking is dangerous. Who is the arbiter of "coded language?" That's absolutely absurd, and is one reason we have a First Amendment.

College used to be a place where ideas were debated. It's become a place where people are mostly taught what to think and their belief systems aren't challenged as long as they subscribe to mainstream thought. I saw and heard all sorts of weird things on the 40 Acres. Sometimes, I was uncomfortable with it, but it definitely made me think.

I learned how to defend my own beliefs with logic, and in some instances, my thinking changed. That's healthy. Shouting people down or kicking them out of school for a first offense of wrong think is not healthy for that student (even if he is truly a wrong-thinker) or for the student population at large. Mob rule is not a good thing for anyone. Some day, the mob will come for you, too.

This isn’t thought police. That guy can be as bigoted as he wants. The problem is extremist right wing violence on campus. That’s the number one threat to anyone going to class so you bet your ass they have a right to evaluate on a case by case basis and afford due process. Any reference to violence in today’s day and age has to be carefully considered. 

People aren’t taught what to think on campus these days. I think most older generations have a problem with the way the younger generations have rejected latent racism.

It is?  Where?

I don't know if you went to college, and if so maybe in that fictional school from the movie Higher Learning, but 90% or more of campus violence is alcohol related.

I also saw no reference to violence in that tweet.  And certainly no call to incite violence.

I have a strong feeling you are the type that sees racist violent boogeymen around every corner.

From NPR and toxicology report:

Quote

A full autopsy report on George Floyd, the man who died after being restrained by Minneapolis police last month, reveals that he was positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The 20-page report also indicates that Floyd had fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system at the time of his death, although the drugs are not listed as the cause.

In video taken by bystanders, Floyd, 46, is shown repeatedly pleading that he cannot breathe as he is held down with a knee on his neck by former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, with three other officers present. The incident has sparked nationwide — and even worldwide — protests.

Floyd's death has been ruled a homicide.

The autopsy report from Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office concludes the cause of death was "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." That conclusion, death due to heart failure, differs from the one reached by an independent examiner hired by the Floyd family; that report listed the cause of death as "asphyxiation from sustained pressure."

 

This medical examiner's report does not mention asphyxiation. However, according to prosecutors, in charging documents filed last week, early results "revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation."

What the fuck does "stepping in a federal court" have to do with knowledge and understanding of the First Amendment?  I've spent 29 years stepping into federal court.

There is no precedent that permits sanction for "coded speech."  To be unprotected by the First Amendment, and thus expellable, the speech has to contain a direct incitement to violence or other unlawful behavior and be directed specifically to someone.

Both cases that have considered college hate speech codes at public universities have struck them down.

https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/FSupp/774/1163/1425792/

This isn't some First Amendment dick-measuring tough-guy thread.  As offensive as the K-State guy's post was, he can't be expelled for it under the First Amendment.  That's a different issue than whether he doesn't challenge it, but if he did, he would win because it's state action sanctioning speech based on content.

That’s a fact question. What is or isn’t a threat. Given the current climate, that can certainly be considered a threat. Certainly enough to pass a Constitutional challenge. It was certainly a reference to violence as right wing ideologies all over the country are calling for violence.

 

Congrats on doing crim defense work. I’ve seen your opinion on the Flynn matter. It’s wrong too.

It doesn’t have to be a shit flinging contest.

Almost every school shooting as been linked to right wing extremist. Usually through social media and the like. It’s become the largest domestic terrorist threat in America. Schools have a right to be cognizant of the threat and those that celebrate it.

Celebrating the wanton murder of a black man certainly fits. Of course, it depends on where people get their information. Fox News certainly doesn’t report on domestic right wing terrorists. Or if they do, they aren’t reporting the truth.
