stfu, believers

This isn’t as much of a submission, but it’s a call for help.

Some of you may have heard about the student who was assaulted and arrested at the University of Tennessee.

He was assaulted because a street preacher who regularly make appearances at the college had shut down an entire square of foot-traffic area and was screaming religiously-fueled hate at the students.  It’s been reported that her screams have even caused professors to cancel classes because she is so disruptive.

The student in question reportedly rode his bicycle passed the cones of the shut-down area and said “Hey ma’am, if you’re trying to spread the good word, maybe you shouldn’t be telling everyone they’re sinners.”  After this, campus police grabbed him off his bike, forced him to the ground, sprayed him with mace, and arrested him for inciting a riot.

This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting.  Please do something about it by signing this petition.  We only need a few more signatures, so you can really make a difference!

Here’s an article on the story.

Thanks for your help!
