As the New York Times described the incident:
Hundreds of students at Middlebury College in Vermont shouted down a controversial speaker on Thursday night, disrupting a program and confronting the speaker in an encounter that turned violent and left a faculty member injured.
- the miscreants--the ones chanting and shouting--"have accepted disciplinary sanctions";
- 70+ miscreants "may be subject to disciplinary procedures under student handbook policies";
- as for those who may have been involved with physical attacks on the car carrying the professor and Murray, the investigation continues; and,
- "there is no unambiguous evidence that any member of the Middlebury College faculty violated faculty policies in regard to their actions on March 2."
Noteworthy is the fact that those administrators will not provide details concerning the punishment already administered until the investigative process is completed.
However, The Motley Monk does have an idea about what that punishment may be:
However, as building self-esteem for the past 2 decades precluded punishment from being administered to miscreant elementary and high school students, apparently those lessons need to be administered to Middlebury's snowflakes who are "exercising their First Amendment rights to free speech."
