"While students were calling the protest “non-violent,” the events on November 9th were anything but nonviolent."

that quote comes from this story:

The Regents end the meeting with Blum asking to end in the memory of Chancellor Heyman- and Blum gives his often used line of "just what the university needed" - someone other than Blum should have said it-(he has said it about others and then later on said how someone new was needed)- and it is a shame that this is the meeting it was done at- this meeting was an aberration of -- EVERYTHING.
The public comment statements were the only thing legitimate about it- everything else, as one commenter said was "false dialogue" .
they adjourned - Yudof tells another unidentified regent they deserve the medal of valor and they all take off (Lansing had to beg them not to leave early) for other destinations --laughing and giggling as the audio cuts off...
