    Professor Click, Missouri Communication Professor, has been charged with class C assault for her actions during campus protests last year, according to local news.

    Click appears to swat a reporter wanting to interview her during a student protest last year:

    The protest made national headlines, particularly due to attempts to keep the press from covering the unrest.

    ABC 17 reports:

    ABC 17 News has confirmed a MU Communication professor has been charged with class C or 3rd degree assault for her actions during the MU campus protests this past fall.

    MU Police gave documents to prosecutors on its investigation into Click back in November.

    Click was seen in several videos confronting journalists and blocking their access to protests on the MU campus through physical and verbal intimidation.

    The MU School of Journalism revoked her courtesy title following the incident.

    MU faculty voiced their support for Click in a signed letter, but several lawmakers called for her termination earlier this month.

    Columbia State Representative Caleb Jones told ABC17 News the charges are appropriate. “While the University of Missouri seems to have no accountability the judicial system in Missouri does,” said Jones.

    Last week, a member of the UM Board of Curators joined the call for her firing.

    “It was Professor Click, with a Journalism title, in a field of free speech.”

    This story warms my heart and slightly restores my faith in a legal system, which has become successively leftist as the years go by.
    Will be anxiously awaiting a guilty verdict.
