Pro-life display de­stroyed at Texas State Univer­sity

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Po­lice at Texas State Univer­sity have opened an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter a nowvi­ral video on Twit­ter showed a man scream­ing ob­scen­i­ties and de­stroy­ing a pro-life display on cam­pus Mon­day, Cam­pus Re­form re­ported Tues­day.

The video, posted by Texas State stu­dent Emma Brock­way, showed an irate young man scream­ing at a white­haired man and fran­ti­cally punch­ing and kick­ing anti-abor­tion signs set up in the school’s free speech zone.

“I was shocked, but I have to ad­mit I ad­mire him in some ways be­cause I think he did what we were all want­ing to do,” Ms. Brock­way said of the van­dal. “I am a sup­porter of free speech, but again, I think every­one was se­cretly want­ing to do what he did. Peo­ple around me were shocked. Af­ter I saw the in­ci­dent, I im­me­di­ately be­gan or­ga­niz­ing a peace­ful counter protest. It’s im­por­tant that the pro-choice side has a pres­ence at the Stal­lions as well.”
