Correction on my post
The word “not” was left out of my post about the student’s trial:
The sentence reads:
The Judge should have told these folks that “being offended” is (NOT) a right nor is “offending” someone a crime.
I probably left it out in the original – I was a tad angry at the time and probably didn’t read it over carefully enough. I also don’t know if it can or should be corrected, but I thought I’d point it out.
