Government university expels student for Facebook posts–and a federal appellate court upholds the expulsion!

America’s government universities are the least free places in the country.

A nursing student at Central Lakes College was removed from the nursing degree program after a number of his Facebook posts were found to be ‘unprofessional’ by a government administrator. (Not threatening, defamatory or harassing.)

And the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals–a typical judicial den of government iniquity–upheld the expulsion in spite of the First Amendment.

The government simply claimed an unlimited right to regulate student speech online because the college program imposed a professional ‘code of conduct’ on nursing students.
