Missouri professor who sought 'muscle' at protest appeals firing

AUSTIN, TEXAS | BY JON HERSKOVITZ

The University of Missouri professor fired after being caught on video calling for "some muscle" to have a student journalist removed from a campus protest, appealed her dismissal on Tuesday, saying school governors overstepped their authority.

"In their decision to terminate my employment, the Curators bowed to conservative voices that seek to tarnish my stellar 12-year record at MU," Melissa Click, formerly an assistant professor in the school's communications department, said of the Board of Curators who are the university's governing body.

She added in the statement that the curators were punishing her "for standing with students who have drawn attention to the issue of overt racism at the University of Missouri."

University officials were not immediately available for comment.

Click was fired in February for the incident that took place in November.

1. She needs to stop making excuses and take responsibility

There has been no contrition or admission that she did anything wrong.

She's just a PC thug and a professional crybully.
