Protest Turns Violent at Georgia Tech

A knife wielding student who charged police on Saturday night was shot and killed by Georgia Tech campus police. The police shouted demands to the student, Scott Schultz, to put down a knife. Instead the student charged the police yelling at the police to shoot. You can see from the video that the police were yelling to put down the knife.

WARNING — GRAPHIC CONTENT:

The student continued advancing on the police and the police shot, killing the student.

Unfortunately for the police, the student was the head of the Georgia Tech Pride Alliance. A protest vigil turned violent Monday night as people could not understand why police would shoot a person advancing on them with a knife yelling “shoot me!”

It seems, based on the video and eyewitnesses that this amounted to a suicide by forcing a police officer to do something unfortunate. And at a time of heightened tensions, people want to blame the police officers for doing their job.

It is unfortunate and is yet another campus in America now marred by social justice nonsense.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Scott Schultz left behind three suicide notes in his dorm room. He had a history of mental illness.

And now I am going to say something that I know some will view as insensitive, but I’m going to say it anyway.

It is ridiculous to read stories about a real tragedy like this and reporters are using plural pronouns to refer to someone because the person is transgendered. In addition to seemingly wanting to dance around the fact the person suffered with mental illness lest anyone tie it to transgenderism, they confuse the entire context of the story by using plural pronouns instead of just picking he or she. According to the Washington Post:

While the state’s investigative bureau referred to Schultz as a male — “Scott Schultz” — the student and the student’s family used the pronoun “them,” and on the Pride Alliance website Schultz used the description “bisexual, nonbinary and intersex.”

The other tragedy here is being that confused in basic English when dealing with a person who has real issues. That is a tragedy in and of itself.

Georgia Tech Hates Freedom. Starts Show Trial Against Fraternity.

A black female student claims members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Georgia Tech yelled racist insults at her from windows in the fraternity house.

There’s just a few problems with her story.

The windows she claims were used are sealed and cannot be opened. There are security cameras too that do not show young men at the windows or the young lady outside the fraternity.

In the real world, that should be compelling evidence. At Georgia Tech, it is ignored. The University has already imposed sanctions on the fraternity.

This really is par for the course for Georgia Tech. A few years ago, the University’s administration targeted the campus’s College Republicans and Christians for punishment and harassment. In fact, in a lawsuit, a federal judge found that the University largely encouraged the harassment of certain students and refused to protect those students.

Georgia Tech has a habit of absurdly leftist policies, including at one point an initiative pushed by the gay mafia called the “SAFE Space” policy. Here’s an excerpt from my forthcoming book about it related to the harrassment of the aforementioned Georgia Tech students:

This LGBT initiative was run through the Dean of Students and the Dean of Diversity’s offices. It employed a “scale of tolerance,” which rated how tolerant different religions were, with Buddhists deemed most accepting, and Southern Baptists the least. “These are taxpayer-funded administrators. It’s not their role to tell me that it’s better to be Buddhist than to be Baptist,” Ruth said. “They’re the ones that cry about separation of church and state all the time, but here you had a state school telling you what church you should go to.” The judge ripped the policy to shreds, saying the SAFE Space policy violated the Establishment of Religion clause. He added that it was “very puzzling to the court that… what they say is the promotion of tolerance actually amounts to intolerance on the part of the institute.”

This latest is just typical of Tech’s totalitarian ways.
