Student's First Amendment Rights Violated

John Martin, Vikram Buddhi's lawyer is appalled at the blatant trampling of his client's First Amendment right to free speech. Buddhi is a graduate student and teaching assistant at Purdue University who has been here for the past ten years on a student visa. Martin hopes that everything can be cleared up by Wednesday so that Vikram can get back to his studies:
“What was allegedly said certainly is derogatory and may be inflammatory,” Martin said. “But there’s no real serious threat more than it was chat on the Web.”
Just the sort of everyday stuff that the Left puts out. Like detailed threats to kill President Bush, Laura Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld. Oh, and a plea for anyone reading the messages to bomb the United States, rape and mutilate British and American women, and kill all Republicans.

Maybe when Vikrim gets out somebody could set him up with Maryscott O'Connor.
