Harvard lynch-mob runs professor off campus

Harvard Professor Ronald Sullivan has spent his career as a lawyer defending some of the poorest people in the country.

He was previously the public defender in Washington DC and personally overturned dozens of wrongful convictions.

Professor Sullivan also represented Michael Brown’s family after the teen was shot to death by police. Huffington Post even called him the “man who dealt the biggest blow to mass incarceration.”

But now he and his wife– the first black student housing deans in Harvard history– have been run off campus by an angry mob of #metoo zealots.

His crime: joining Harvey Weinstein’s defense team.

Sullivan believes in justice for ALL, and that even a man like Weinstein who has already been convicted by the Twittering classes in the court of public opinion, is entitled to competent legal defense.

“It is particularly important for this category of unpopular defendant to receive the same process as everyone else — perhaps even more important…

“To the degree we deny unpopular defendants basic due process rights we cease to be the country we imagine ourselves to be.”

Powerful words that absolutely ring true. But now all these whiny students at Harvard claim they no longer feel safe with Sullivan on campus, and they’ve demanded the university do something.

Get ZH a crying towel.

As long as the students do not make physical contact,they can speak out & make demands.

The 1st Amendment gives me the Right to say FUCK THE FIRST AMENDMENT! (paraphrase of Jim Jefferies)
Time for Rep/Cons to defend the 1st.
While you are doing that,GET FUCKED!

Wonder how many of the founding fathers thought these laws will really bring out the hypocrisy in future generations?
