Professor and students charged with destroying anti-choice display

Sally Jacobsen, the Northern Kentucky University professor who was put on leave for encouraging her students to destroy an anti-choice display, has been charged along with her students with criminal mischief, theft by unlawful taking and criminal solicitation. Yikes.

Jacobsen is accused of encouraging her students to dismantle a display of 400 crosses that were set up by a campus anti-abortion group. The crosses were supposed to symbolize aborted fetuses.
The six students were charged with criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking.

Originally there was some confusion as to if Jacobsen took part in the destruction or just urged her students to do so. Apparently though, the student newspaper published pics of her destroying the display. Again, let’s leave the property destruction and harassment tactics to the anti-choicers. I know shit is frustrating, but we’re better than that.
