Parentis Goes Loco


When Occidental College cracks down on speech, it really cracks down hard. Not content to remove the host of a sometimes bawdy student radio show, it ended up dissolving the student government and seizing its funds.

The student was nearly expelled before the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education came to his aid.
