University of Washington Shooting
It seems the chickens are coming home to roost on our college campuses. After several ugly protests around the country on university campuses where College Republicans have invited conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos to speak, a shooting took place at the University of Washington last night where an anti-Yiannopoulos protest turned violent. The victim, described as a demonstrator who was trying to keep the peace, is in critical condition. The suspected shooter has turned himself into police.
There are numerous reports of bricks being hurled at police. Two men wearing Trump caps were beaten by protesters. At this point, we don't know whether the shooter was a student, a protester, or was acting out against the protesters. What we do know is that we have crossed another line in the on-going campus disruptions sweeping the nation.
