I know there are numerous UMass alumni on this site that will not be the least bit surprised by this. Kill a cop. Try to kill a couple more. Oh yeah, and bomb a courthouse. Then get invited to speak to loony lefties at a major university.
What exactly is the message here? Even Coupe DeVal is offended by this invitation. For that matter, how is this guy even out on parole?
Levasseur, now under federal parole in a Maine halfway house, was the radical leader of United Freedom Front, a violent anti-government group linked to some 20 bombings, including one at the Suffolk County Courthouse in 1976.
“It’s truly unbelievable,” said Rick Brown, president of the State Police Association of Massachusetts, who added that cops from around the nation are prepared to protest the event.
Frankly, I’m still a little unclear about these so-called anti-censorship rules. Come again? Apparently I was mistaken when I thought that the school could control who is allowed on campus.
You have a funny way of showing that you “deplore the example” this guy sets for your students, Jack.
