Students May Be Expelled for Defending Apartment From Intruder
What did the liberal establishment expect George Zimmerman to do, let Trayvon Martin smash his brains out against the sidewalk? Yes. Likewise, if someone breaks into your apartment, don’t even dream of defending yourself. If you are a student, it could get you expelled:
A pair of college students in Washington state are facing disciplinary action, including possible expulsion, for using a handgun to prevent an intruder from entering their university-owned apartment.
According to MyFoxSpokane.com, a discipline board at Gonzaga University in Spokane voted Friday to move forward with sanctions against Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh. The men will learn what their future at the school will hold at a later date.
Fagan and McIntosh were at the off-campus apartment on the night of October 24 when they heard a knock at the door. Fagan answered the door and found himself face-to-face with John Taylor, a convicted felon wanted on an outstanding warrant by Washington State’s Department of Corrections. Fagan said Taylor demanded money, and became frustrated when the student refused.
When Taylor attempted to barge into the apartment, Fagan called to McIntosh, who brandished his pistol, the site reported. At that, Taylor left the scene, but was later arrested by Spokane Police after the students filed a report.
A happy ending right? Wrong. Although McIntosh has a concealed carry permit, handguns are not allowed on university-owned property, even if it is off-campus housing. Consistent with the zero tolerance for sanity policies that prevail at institutions of learning both high and low, they might have been better off to let the goon rob them.
Then again, Taylor might have killed them. That is a chance educrats would be willing to take.
