The police department at the University of California, Santa Barbara has released its official crime report concerning the professor who stole a graphic anti-abortion sign from two abortion protesters, then seemingly assaulted one of the protesters (a 16-year-old girl) and destroyed the sign.
The professor is Mireille Miller-Young. She is several months pregnant.
A large swath at the beginning of the report is redacted for reasons that are unclear. A few administrative bits are redacted at other points. However, most of the text remains uncensored.
“In essence, Miller-Young told me that she felt ‘triggered’” “in a negative way” by graphic images on the anti-abortion poster and on anti-abortion literature demonstrators handing out on Mar. 4, explains the report, obtained by the Santa Barbara Independent. (RELATED: Read the full report here)
The feminist studies professor who specializes in queer theory and pornography said she felt the protesters had no right to be on the UC Santa Barbara campus “because the poster was upsetting to her and other students.”
