Holy cow

So I found out yesterday that one of my professors was arrested in 1969 for destruction of federal property and resisting arrest. She took part in a march with about 2500 other people. They ended up throwing buckets of blood and paint on to the Pentagon. She was never officially charged because it would have taken forever to properly book every person arrested but she did end up on Nixon's list. How bad ass is that?

I remember when I found out that my dad had been arrested multiple times for participating in anti-nuclear power protests, rallies, etc. I was so proud of him! LOL. So... yeah, that's totally bad ass. Go, Professor!

It is nice to find out someone you know has an arrest record.

Puts a whole different light on your impression of this professor, doesn't it? Good for her for sticking to what she believes in...and doing something about it..
