    Regents approve punishments up to expulsion for repeatedly disrupting speeches

    The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents on Friday passed a policy pushed by Republican state lawmakers to punish students on UW campuses who repeatedly disrupt campus speakers with opposing views.

    The policy to address the so-called heckler's veto requires a student twice found responsible for disrupting freedom of expression to be suspended, and a student who disrupts three times to be expelled.

    Excellent. The heckler's veto can never be allowed to stand. Cesspools like UC Berkeley should follow suit

    Who would have ever think that this country would ever come to this?

    UC Berkley doesn't have a conservative state legislature to push things like this along. Also it would only affect UW students and there's a hell of a lot more than students involved. However it is a start.

    Good to see; hopefully others will follow suit.

    How hard is it to notice that one's "free speech" was infringing upon the rights of another's free speech? By design. The truth is no alternative ideas (i.e. IDEAS) can be allowed to potentially penetrate hearts and minds. Their stranglehold on thought control is at stake.
