DePaul Punishes Pro-Life Student for Releasing Names of Vandals
FoxNews.com ^ | 2-28-2013 | By Todd Starnes

The head of a conservative student organization at DePaul University has been sanctioned by the university and could be expelled after he released the names of vandals who destroyed a pro-life flag display.

Kristopher Del Campo, the chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom chapter, was found guilty by the university on two counts – “Disorderly, Violent, Intimidating or Dangerous Behavior to Self or Others” and “Judicial Process Compliance.”

The charges were a result of posting a copy of the university’s incident report on the YAF’s website.

I would not dispute that. I looked up articles on them on LifeSitNews.com and the search returned all sorts of weird stuff -- Gay Conferences, etc.

Sad for the namesake -- Saint Vincent DePaul, who is known for his great works of charities and defender of the faith (when he lived in France).

Hearing that, I think I need a change of given names from Vincent.

"The university’s public safety department launched an investigation and eventually identified 13 students who confessed to the crime. Those names were then released by the university to Del Campo."

So... when they gave the names away, what did they expect? I believe the old adage is "A secret told to another is no longer a secret." The University is blaming the student for their own failure... assuming this was supposed to be private info to begin with.

As an aside: No word in the article as to whether the actual vandals could be expelled - only that the victim is now being threatened with expulsion.

If you think about it, people named Francis have it worse. San Francisco is one of the worst places in the US for Gays, abortion, and all that is wrong with the US. It is named after Saint Francis [San Francisco].

Saint Vincent de Paul was a great champion of the faith when he was alive.

The Queen of France wanted him to become cardinal when a cardinal died (Cardinal Richelieu became the cardinal when Saint Vincent de Paul declined). [That is the Cardinal Richelieu famous from the Three Musketeers, a story based on some information from that time.]

Saint Vincent de Paul helped the poor.

And there was another case where the Queen of France wanted to name a man who would have become a very bad bishop. Saint Vincent de Paul, at great personal expense, stood up to the Queen, and the man was not named bishop.

The Queen forced Saint Vincent de Paul to tell the man's mother (probably a friend of the Queen) that her son would not be named bishop.

When St. Vincent told the woman that her son would not be made bishop, she threw an iron (for laundry) at St. Vincent, hitting him in the forehead.

St. Vincent left, without complaining, even though his assistant wanted to give the woman a piece of his mind (which St. Vincent would not allow).

There is great respect for Saint Vincent today.

We have relatives from DePaul. It is a collectivist/islamist seedbed.

I have a relative who got a graduate degree in psychology from DePaul. She’s a blame-America-firster, and an Obmamabot.

“Disorderly, Violent, Intimidating or Dangerous Behavior to Self or Others” and “Judicial Process Compliance.”

Different state entirely, I know, but what do you wanna bet the administration and faculty at DePaul were nodding in approval when the Journal News mapped out all the pistol permit holders in two counties north of NYC? If you had been there in those hallowed halls, you probably would've felt like you were trapped on a whole dashboard full of those stupid nodding dog toys. B***ards.

Indeed, Frisco is one of the worst places in the US.

People are not punished for what they do, but for their views.

Last January Del Campo and other pro-life students received permission from the university to erect a pro-life display featuring 500 flags. Vandals later destroyed the display – stuffing a number of the flags into trash cans.

On Feb. 5 the national Young Americans for Freedom organization posted the names of the vandals on their website. The posting generated negative comments directed at the vandals – and the university held Del Campo responsible.

The university’s public safety department launched an investigation and eventually identified 13 students who confessed to the crime. Those names were then released by the university to Del Campo.

The thirteen students that confessed to the crime vandalism and destruction of private property have no right to expect that their names would be kept confidential. When one commits a crime one should expect notoriety when their commission of the crime is discovered.

The college administration released the names for all intents and purposes they published the names of the perpetrators and any undesirable consequences of that act can be laid at their feet.

The YAF acted as could be expected. Any claims that they acted inappropriately is facetious on its face.

Criminals have can have no right to have their criminal acts kept secret by anyone.

The DAFT Blog
The DePaul Alliance for Free Thought (DAFT) is the official organization for atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and humanists at DePaul University.

Amanda Stefanski is a member of Feminist Front. It’s great that the atmosphere of the university allows us to connect with other progressive campus organizations.

Several pics of her on the blog.

Here is an excellent commentary on the event:

http://thefire.org/article/15399.html#sthash.FsDGZGlt.dpuf

To give you an idea how the left thinks:

“I had planned on ending this blog entry right there. Then I read to the bottom of the page, to the comments, where “Maria” had posted a reply arguing that removing the flags was also an act of free speech.

“I would just like to point out that taking down the flags was just as much of an act of freedom of speech as putting them up were. I think for a man (Kris) to push his views on a college campus, where many women do not believe a man has any right to say one way or another what to do with their bodies, he got what he deserved. The students showed their right to activism in the opposite but same way as the DePaul YAF chapter did. They made a bold statement by putting those flags up, and a bold statement was made in return by taking them down. It [may] have upset YAF, but that was in no way shape or form vandalism. Vandalism at DePaul is detrimental damage to any building or piece of property. The flags were on school property but not a part of the school’s property, and they were not shredded to pieces, they were simply thrown in the trash by students making a statement just like YAF was. To have students punished for making the same but opposite statement as YAF would be destructive to the college atmosphere, and how we are encouraged to question, think, and grow here has young adults. Nobody made a big fuss when they were put up, there should certainly not be a fuss made because someone made their own statement by taking them down.”

Maria is obviously going for an advanced degree in Sophistry.
