The Ohio State University Coalition for Black Liberation claims the terrorist who attacked OSU students shouldn’t have been killed by police. The social justice warriors (SJWs) added the terrorist’s name to their list of “persons of color wrongly killed by police” at a recent rally on the Buckeye State campus. Oy!
Did they really name a homicidal jihadist to a list of supposed victims of bad policing? They did. It gets better though. They recast the Muslim terrorist’s attack upon Western Civilization as an expression of “feelings of anxiety related to how he was perceived as a Muslim”. As such, they say the terrorist shouldn’t have been killed by police. Nevermind how he tried to slash and stab his fellow students to death. They protesters claimed that “justice and due process don’t come from a cop’s bullet.”
Associate Professor of English Pranav Jani added: “You can understand where an act of violence comes from without condoning that act of violence.”
While everyone is entitled to their opinion, that sure sounds like some weapons-grade stupid on display by the Ohio State University SJW crew.
Ohio State has plenty of other social justice warriors on staff, including Stephanie Clemons Thompson, an assistant director of student life, who attempts to wrap a veil of compassion around the Muslim terrorist in a Fcebook post.
The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.
A great majority of Americans would no doubt take issue to the feeble-minded idea that self-defense is improper because it deprives a violent attacker of due process rights.
