College forbids student to walk at graduation due to ‘negative’ facebook post


Saint Augustine’s College (SAC) in Raleigh has refused to allow  a student to participate in its graduation ceremonies due to a comment  he posted on Facebook about how the college was handling its recovery  from tornado damage. Despite SAC’s extensive  promises of freedom of expression for students, the college disciplined student  Roman Caple because of what it called a “negative social media  exchange.”   TheFire.org

  1. The college should have ignored the illiterate post by Mr. Caple. They should be more concerned that one of their graduates should write such an incomprehensible statement. Aside from that, if they were going to award this imbecile a diploma, they should have allowed him to walk with his peers.
