Diversity of thought and expression

For approved ideas and only in authorized Free Speech Zones.

So says Tarrant County College which has banned the SCCC's "Empty Holder Protests".

I see lawsuits.

I see that the college is taking the chicken way out by not banning the protest outright.

I actually have attended that college on that campus. The ironically named "free speech zone" is in the middle of the campus. Parking is on the outer edges, so the students will have to carry the holsters in their bags before they put them on in the middle of the campus.

Most of the students will not notice the protest unless they also have signs out. This effectively negates the protest.

I've emailed the Board of Trustees; hoping that pressure on them will get the policy changed.
