Group protests Belmont's hiring of ex-attorney general Alberto Gonzales

Group protests Belmont's hiring of ex-attorney general Alberto Gonzales

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20120121/NEWS0202/301210040/Group-protests-Belmont-s-hiring-ex-attorney-general-Alberto-Gonzales-

A small group rallied on Belmont Boulevard and at Belmont University’s temporary law school on Friday morning to protest the institution’s hiring of Alberto Gonzales as a law professor.

The demonstrators, supported by the Tennessee chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, claimed Gonzales was “one of the key architects” of the Bush administration’s torture policies.

“It’s really shameful that Belmont would honor him by hiring him as a law professor,” said protester Mark Brooks, who also thought it was “deeply ironic to hire him to teach constitutional law.”

During the protest, the demonstrators were photographed by Jeff Kinsler, dean of the Belmont College of Law. He declined to comment about the protest.

2. Take heart..the school is in Tennessee.

The law school is also unaccredited as of now. They are seeking accreditation.


Still...he should be in prison.

5. Stanford and Yale are popular destinations.

I don't know how Yoo was hired at Cal but they rely on Federal funds for a lot of programs so maybe it was blackmail.

6. 'He should be in prison'. What happened to the Congressional investigations

that were going on a few years ago? And did Rove ever answer the subpoenas he was avoiding? Leahy once had a committee also airc, or more than one. What happened to all of that ?

I hope the Spanish, French and British courts go ahead now with their cases against these war criminals.

Good for those who were there.

8. He came to UC Denver last year...

I had the privilege of being there to give him a Klingon style discommendation, because he is without honor!
