Vital Signs Blog: Pro-Abortion Vandals Finally Charged

Vital Signs Blog: Pro-Abortion Vandals Finally Charged
Dr. Sally Jacobsen, the pro-abortion English lit professor at Northern Kentucky University who led several of her students in destroying a pro-life display on the campus lawn has finally been charged with misdemeanors in the case. Six of the students have also been charged by Campbell County Attorney Justin Verst. Argues Verst: "The property was damaged... the crosses and the sign. They were thrown in the trash can. They were taken and vandalized. To me, it's pretty clear cut that's a crime."


Jacobsen and the students were all charged with criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking, plus Jacobsen was given a third charge of criminal solicitation for inciting and leading the students in destroying the pro-life display. The theft charge is a class A misdemeanor and punishable by up to one year in jail and a $500 fine while the criminal mischief and criminal solicitation charges are class B misdemeanors and could result in 90 days of jail and a $250 fine.

Jacobsen's lawyer indicated that she intends to plead "not guilty" because she doesn't see that she committed a crime.

I guess it's unrealistic to expect any kind of remorse for vandalism from somebody who doesn't think killing an unborn child warrants remorse. If you can advocate killing with a clear conscience, not much can strike you as wrong.
