Mizzou prof seen cursing at cop in new video

2:26 PM. EST February 15, 2016

The University of Missouri assistant professor who attracted nationwide attention and faced suspension from her teaching job for a November confrontation with a student journalist is in more hot water.

The Columbia Police Department released video from an October protest on campus in which assistant professor Melissa Click can be seen cursing at a cop who is trying to clear a roadway on campus after Click and a group of student demonstrators locked arms to block a road during the university's homecoming parade in October.

In the police video footage, first published by the Columbia Missourian, Click can be seen screaming profanities at an officer who placed an arm on her as he told her to get back on the sidewalk. Less than two weeks later, the assistant communication professor was captured on video calling for "some muscle" to help her eject a student journalist at a protest site on the university's quad.

Click is in the midst of applying for tenure at the university. Hank Foley, the university's interim chancellor, previously resisted calls for her dismissal, saying her future with the university should play out through the tenure process. But after the release of the police video footage, Foley in a statement on Sunday said "he will address these new revelations with the Board of Curators as they work to complete their own review of the matter.

The video of Click's confrontation with the student journalist went viral and led to Click being suspended with pay. She agreed to perform 20 hours of community service to avoid a misdemeanor assault charge. State GOP lawmakers, who are angry that the university hasn't fired Click, have also threatened to freeze funding at current levels because of the university's handling of the situation.

1. She's going to get fired

I give it a few more weeks topps.

Ironically, it has been a white professor who has done more than anybody to damage the Concerned Student 1950.

She's got nobody to blame but herself.
