It has finally happened. Mizzou made one small step toward normalcy today. Yes, Melissa Click is gone. Caput. Finished. At least at the University of Missouri, that is. The board of regents voted today on Click’s fate and it turns out that she’ll no longer be needing any muscle at Mizzou.
From Columbia Tribune:
The board voted 4-2 in favor of termination during a closed session in Kansas City, with Henrickson and curator John Phillips opposing the move, UM System spokesman John Fougere wrote in an email Thursday. Curators David Steelman, Donald Cupps, Maurice Graham and Phil Snowden voted in favor of firing Click.
Click did not respond to a message seeking comment Thursday. The board earlier voted to suspend Click with pay on Jan. 27.
“The board respects Dr. Click’s right to express her views and does not base this decision on her support for students engaged in protest or their views,” Henrickson said in the prepared statement. “However, Dr. Click was not entitled to interfere with the rights of others, to confront members of law enforcement or to encourage potential physical intimidation against a student.”
It’s about damn time this happened. No one really wants this lady to be teaching the future of America..
