Should U of C criminally convicted student be expelled?
Now, the convict is also a U of C student, second year in sciences. He's 21. The judge who convicted him delayed the start of his sentence so that he can finish his second year of school. Some "outraged" students have formed a petition to expel him out of university, with some thousands signing it.
He did the crime, and will soon do his time. Why stigmatize him, further? This is a perfect example of the perils of public/social justice trials. Not satisfied with the legal system, some want to take the law into their own hands. This is terrible, as they are undermining our judicial system.
