Ole Miss chancellor denounces campus protests sparked by Obama re-election





University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones says he is disappointed in the “immature and uncivil approach” taken by some students following Tuesday night’s election results, which resulted in hours of on-campus protesting that has now become a national news story.

A statement released by the university Wednesday says some students notified university police that people were gathering near the student union to protest President Barack Obama’s reelection.

Officers arrived to find about 30-40 students in front of the union, which quickly grew to more 400 students within 20 minutes.

UPD ordered the group to return to their residence halls, which took about 25 minutes, according to the statement. But another group of about 100 students gathered at another residence hall soon after. Officers made two arrests for disorderly conduct: one for public intoxication and one for failure to comply with police orders. ..............(more)

3. If they get any more unruly, they may have to take the dogs and hoses to them

Ironic, given that these students undoubtedly want a return to those two ugly images of our past.

6. The chancellor responds only because of the exposed racism in UM.

Fuck him and his racist university. It's just like bullying. They only pay attention when it gets media attention after someone shoots a bully.

7. I can't imagine living in that State.

I'd rather live in a box on the side of a freeway in a blue state. Those stupid privileged white boys would be singing a different tune if Romney had won and started a few more wars and called them to the Draft. They have it too easy. Fuck the racists.

Hey Mississippi!! The Blue States called, they want their money back!! Pay for your own damn stuff.

I am disappointed in the younger generation.

14. "Officers made two arrests for disorderly conduct: one for public intoxication..."

"PUBLIC INTOXICATION" on a college campus?? You can get arrested for that?
