Students Told They Canít Pass Out Constitution on Constitution Day
Free speech experts say school ban was unconstitutional

Administrators and campus security told students at Californiaís Modesto Junior College that they could not hand out copies of the Constitution to fellow students on Constitution Day.

The attempt by Megan Rainwater and Robert Van Tuinen to hand out copies of the Constitution was shut down on Tuesday by campus officials. They were told they would only be able to pass out the Constitution in the collegeís free speech zone, and only after scheduling it ahead of time.

In the exchange that was captured on video, a campus police officer approaches the students and tells them to stop handing out the Constitution.

ďWhy are there rules tied to my free speech?Ē Van Tuinen asks the officer.

The officer responds that there is a ďprocessĒ he has to go through.

Both Van Tuinen and the officer then proceed to the Student Center. He is then told by an administrator that the college has a ďtime, place, and manner.Ē

ďAnd thatís the free speech area, and the free speech area is over there in front of the student center, in that little cement area. Thatís the time, place, and manner free speech area for anybody thatís going to be on campus, which comes through my office, and they would need to fill out an application,Ē she told Van Tuinen.

More proof that liberals don't believe in freedom.

A great example of the upside-down, inside-out world we live in today.
