UCSB’s Mireille Miller-Young Sentenced To Three Years Probation For Stealing From And Attacking Pro-Lifers

Finally, a story with a happy ending.

Last March, pro-life activists Thrin and Joan Short were in UC Santa Barbara’s “free speech zone,” practicing free speech, when this happened:

You can disagree with pro-lifers all day long, but you don’t get to steal stuff from them and then attack them when they try to get it back. Surprisingly, this is true even at UCSB.

Lara Cooper, Noozhawk (Santa Barbara):

An associate professor of feminist studies at UC Santa Barbara was sentenced Friday to three years probation, 100 hours community service and 10 hours of anger-management classes after pleading no contest to several charges stemming from a confrontation she had with an anti-abortion group on campus in March…

The confrontation occurred between Miller-Young and several abortion protesters who carried graphic images on posters. The professor told police she found the literature and pictures “disturbing” because she teaches reproduction rights, and because she was pregnant at the time.

Miller-Young appeared before Judge Brian Hill, dabbing her eyes while sitting in the front of the courtroom…

Hill ultimately sentenced Miller-Young to serve her community service in conflict-resolution workshops run by the Quaker Church, 10 hours of anger management and $493 in restitution to the Shorts…

I didn’t know the Quakers ran conflict-resolution workshops, but that sounds perfect. She could use at least 100 hours with people who actually believe in something.

More importantly, now she can return to the faculty lounge as a brave martyr in the evil conservatives’ #WarOnWomen. There’s nothing more important to our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left than to think of themselves as victims. Congratulations, Mireille!
