Kent State Fired Prof for Road Rage- Keeps Jihad-Tied Prof

From Clarion Project:

“…However, while KSU’s tolerance for free speech extends to advocacy of terrorism and genocide, it apparently doesn’t extend to non-violent road rage. Last April, the university fired a professor of 10 years after a video emerged of his involvement in a confrontation with a driver that he says nearly struck a girl because he was texting while driving…

The terminated professor, Linden Adkins, says he confronted the driver after he saw him texting while driving, drove through a stop sign and a student had to jump out of the way. Akins is seen yelling that the driver is a “moron” and leaning onto the windshield, at which point it sped away and knocked him to the ground. Adkins says he did so to see the face of the driver more clearly than through the side window that was tinted.

“I didn’t get violent. I didn’t get threatening. But I did want to make my point to him…Maybe I shouldn’t have been quite as intense, but at the same time, is it possible that my being that intense saved a future life?” he said.

Adkins was charged with a fourth-degree misdemeanor of “aggravated menacing.” Ohio law defines the violation as when someone “knowingly cause[s] another to believe that the offender will cause serious physical harm to the person or property of the other person, the other person’s unborn, or a member of the other person’s immediate family.”

It continues, “the other person’s belief may be based on words or conduct of the offender that are directed at or identify a corporation, association, or other organization that employs the other person or to which the other person belongs.”

Shouting “Death to Israel” at a former Israeli diplomat on campus hosted by the Jewish Studies Program at KSU—as Pino did in 2011—certainly fits that definition of “aggravated menacing.” So doesseveral other outrageous activities of his, such as a threatening letter to pro-Israel academics, support for suicide bombings of Jews, and support for Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists who target all Americans. But Pino has tenure and wasn’t charged.”
