Student Photojournalist Has Face-Off with Activists at Mizzou Protests
Thought this was interesting
I thought protestors wanted to be on the news.

Having worked in education, I'd think the professor might need to reread the school's policies. The comment about getting some muscle and her movement as she calls for that seems that it might imply advocating physical force toward a student (reporter) who doesn't seem to have been causing any harm to other students or school property, or, anything.
Out on the quad. Where there's probably no expectation of privacy. And I wonder if they had permission to camp out there.
Can't we all just get along?
