Colo. Teacher Kicks Student for GOP Shirt

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- A part-time college instructor has apologized for kicking a student because he was wearing a Republican shirt.

Fort Lewis College student Mark O'Donnell said he was showing people his College Republicans sweat shirt, which said "Work for us now ... or work for us later," when Maria Spero kicked him in the leg at an off-campus restaurant.

Spero then said "she should have kicked me harder and higher," said O'Donnell. "To physically take that out on someone because you disagree with them, that is completely wrong."

Police Sgt. Mitch Higgins said Saturday that O'Donnell wanted to press charges and a misdemeanor summons would be issued.

Spero, a visiting instructor of modern languages, apologized to O'Donnell in a letter dated Oct. 29.

"I acted entirely inappropriately by kicking you, giving vent to a thoughtless knee-jerk political reaction that should never have happened," she wrote. "Before the incident, I did not know you and that you are a Fort Lewis student."

The college also formally apologized, said David Eppich, assistant to the school's president.

O'Donnell said the apology wasn't enough and he plans to file a complaint with the college.

The only phone number listed in Durango for the surname Spero was constantly busy Saturday.

Durango police did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Gee, I wonder how many acts of violence Republicans have committed against Democrats. I would venture to guess about 1-2% of all acts were initiated by Republicans.

So, I'm not surprised at this story. This is typical Dem / Lib behavior - actions that contradict their claimed beliefs.

Sweet.
From the article and the school's own course catalog -

Instructor: Maria Spero is a Visiting Instructor of Spanish in the Modern Languages Department at Fort Lewis College. A long-time instructor with the Extended Studies Program, Ms. Spero has been teaching for more than fourteen years and has led many travel study tours to Mexico and Honduras.
- I would presume that Ms Maria Spero is a resident alien working under a green card.
If that is the case, criminal charges are grounds for revocation of said Green Card. Get her ass tossed out of her job AND out of the country.

Hmmmm... "knee-jerk"...kick. Pun intentional?

Yeah, no shit, "teach" you "acted inappropriately". Freedom of expression ands when your fist (or in this case your foot) touches somebody else. Now pay the piper.


"Before the incident, I did not know you and that you are a Fort Lewis student."


So, it's OK to kick a townie, but not a campus kid?

Go back to the glorious worker's paradise of Cuba, you "color of authority" puke.

Turn their own weapon against them.

Hell, I'd be happy to donate to a collection for Ronnie Barrett to sue VPC for libel! They said he's a terrorist supplier.

Even if we didn't win we could bankrupt their ass (unless Soros got involved).

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something but I thought it worked like this:

1) He gives a statement to police.
2) The police go talk to the teacher and get her side.
3) Police decide if there is enough evidence to charge her with a crime.
4) Prosecuter decides based on evidence whether or not to go to trial/make a plea bargain (ie. letter of apology + a misdemeanor charge)
5) If it goes to trial, the student is served a summons to testify at the trial.

I didn't think that it is up to the student to 'press charges'. He can decide whether or not to go to the police in the first place, but they decide what happens next. I was involved in a similar situation and that's how it worked.

It's a good thing he didn't lay a finger on her or he'd still be in jail even if he was defending himself.

Hell, I got kicked in law school for calling the campus cops on a bum wandering the basement locker area and student lounges. One of my white lib fellow students didn't like the man getting called on a oppressed black man.

- I would presume that Ms Maria Spero is a resident alien working under a green card.
If that is the case, criminal charges are grounds for revocation of said Green Card. Get her ass tossed out of her job AND out of the country.



It think it has to be a felony or related to moral turpitude.

Very unlikely that she has a Green Card. She probably has an H category visa or some type of work permit. And as Captainpooby wrote above, she would have to commit a felony or more serious crime to get kicked out.
Link Posted: 10/31/2004 3:18:47 AM EST
She's lucky she has all of her teeth. I would have had a hard time not throwing the bitch to the gound and using her face to break her fall.

The guy was smart to not react though. So much easier to have her prosecuted if you didn't fight back. That, and I'm sure there is a plethera of eye witnesses, seeing as it was at a restaurant.

She needs to be fired. I would except nothing less than that, and money from her.

Nope, INS usually doesn't revoke green cards or deport based on a misdemeanor complaint or conviction.

Thanks for the extra info on green cards / immigration violations. So criminal misdemeanors like minor Battery don't count? Now I have something else to be pissed off about.
