CBS: Minority students at three prestigious law schools say they want to delay final exams because they’ve been busy protesting grand jury decisions in the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of white police officers in New York City and Ferguson, Missouri, and haven’t had time to study.

Student groups at Harvard Law School, Georgetown University Law Center and Columbia Law School say demonstrations and rallies over the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases have prevented many students from adequately preparing for exams.

At Harvard Law School, a coalition of student groups representing Asian, black, Native American and other minority students says many students have been compelled to take action because the “national tragedy” implicated a judicial system they had chosen to join by studying law. They criticize administrators for largely staying on the sidelines.

“We led rallies, held vigils, and published an oped. You were silent on this issue,” the coalition wrote in a letter issued over the weekend. “We petitioned the government, served as legal observers, created spaces of solidarity, drafted model legislation, and marched through the streets of Boston and Cambridge.”

University officials at Harvard, Georgetown and Columbia have said students can petition to have their exams rescheduled and the requests will be considered individually, a process their policies already provided.

Columbia and Harvard also are offering students special sessions with trauma counselors, mental health professionals and professors to talk about the lack of indictments in the Brown and Garner cases in the coming days.


Oh look, more whining!! This pretty much sums up what these geniuses are all about. Do whatever you want with no consequences. After all, the world completely revolves around you. You just protest your little hearts off and let us know when you’re ready to do your job as a student.

LOL. You just can’t make this shit up. Seriously, how fucked are all these losers once they get a real job. What’s gonna happen when they get a job and the next trendy thing that everyone wants to protest over begins? Because it could happen any day now. Seriously, anything will do. They just spent a week standing up for this kid:

Supposedly, according to people on the internet this was Mike Brown too:

Now I have no proof that that was the ACTUAL St. Michael Brown. Seems to short. But that never stopped Rolling Stone or Jezebel from making a story up about gang rape, so I see no reason not to report whatever I am told is fact on the internet. The Internet says it’s Mike Brown, so that’s what I’m going with. Seems like a nice kid. Either way this is DEFINITELY the kind of kid that’s worth walking on the highway, preventing emergency vehicles from getting to hospitals, and standing on subway tracks for.

I thought Harvard, Columbia, and Georgetown were for smart kids? I mean, you gotta be a real, real dumbass to pull a stunt like this. These are Goddamn law school students. They’re in their late freaking 20’s. How fucking stupid can you get?

What a bunch of pansies these kids are too. Seriously, just straight up LOSERS. Trauma counselors?? For what? Watching the Ferguson riots on TV? Jesus H. Christ, have some fucking pride in yourselves. That’s just straight up embarrassing. Take a lap hippies.

And who’s paying for all these “mental health professionals” to service all these whiny losers? The university of course. The same universities that pay their professors hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to do research. No sweat off their back, they’ll just jack up tuition. Then when these idiots graduate with insane debt and can’t keep a job because they can’t EVER miss a good protest, they’ll start whining about how evil banks are for wanting their Goddamn loans back, so they’ll go an Occupy Wall Street again.

I love how these hippies actually think they accomplished something too. This was my favorite quote:

“We petitioned the government, served as legal observers, created spaces of solidarity, drafted model legislation, and marched through the streets of Boston and Cambridge.”

AKA you wasted a lot of very valuable time that you could’ve been using to study for finals. You accomplished absolutely NOTHING. You marched through the streets and inconvenienced everyone. You wrote about imaginary legislation that will never get voted on because you’re not legislators. You created “spaces of solidarity,” which evidently means you all at lunch together at Panera Bread and went on your laptops. That’s all you did. You did nothing.

Newsflash – no one made you protest. You made a choice. In your idiotic mind it was a sacrifice. Guess what? Choices have consequences. When you decide to protest instead of study the world doesn’t stop for you. Life goes on. Congressman John Lewis from Georgia was on the Freedom Rides and was the first person to cross the bridge in Selma in 1965. Guess what he had to do? Drop out of school. Because unlike you fuck bois he was mature enough to realize that he could be a full time protester or a full time student, but he couldn’t be both.



THAT is the face of a protester I can take seriously. Someone who protesting legalized segregation and the denial of suffrage. Someone who was willing to drop out of school and literally get beaten with a baseball bat multiple times in order to get civil rights legislation passed. Not a single one of these Nancy boys and girls can hold a candle to civil rights leaders like this, yet they see no problem whatsoever comparing themselves in a historical context to them. Posers.

These idiots can’t seem to comprehend. How can ANY of us go on with our lives after the Ferguson decision? They can’t fathom the fact that some of us just don’t give a shit. Some of us watched the decision to not indict Darren Wilson and actually disagreed with it. Then we shook our heads and walked out the door because Turtleboy Jr. had to go and get his measles shot.


Oh yea, and what do all these people in LAW SCHOOL wanna be when they grow up anyway? Oh that’s right – LAWYERS. Guess what lawyers have to deal with on a daily basis? Shit like Ferguson. If you are traumatized by the concept of a grand jury decision not ending in the way you wanted it to end then maybe, just MAYBE this isn’t the right career for you. Don’t worry though, Turtleboy Sports has plenty of job openings. We need a coffee boy and three more members for the Turtleboy Sports dance team. Send us an email if you’re interested.

Last but not least, what about the Harvard law students who didn’t protest? The ones who did what they were supposed to do as students, the ones who did their jobs. Do they get to petition for extra time? I can’t imagine it was easy studying with these selfish assholes occupying the libraries like they did at Columbia. Nah, they’ll probably just take the exams anyway because they’re winners and the protesters are losers. Someday they might even hire those losers to work for them, but they’ll have to pry them away from me first. I’m not giving up a good coffee boy without a fight!!

    If you don’t personally go to any of these schools, why do you even care? Any student who wishes to take the exam at the later date will be allowed to, so no preferential treatment is actually being given. Students being able to petition their schools for things has always been around. If you’re paying $50,000 plus a year, you get certain rights with that. Dumber things than this have been okayed.
    And getting an extension on a final is easy as fuck. I knew people who got extensions for all kinds of shit, some of it legit, some of it ridiculous. That happens everywhere. The only reason this is a story is because it fits a certain narrative about the protestors that people are spinning.
    Plus, these are law students. Asking for continuances because they’re not quite ready is half the fucking job. If you could stop frothing at the mouth for a minute, you’d see this for what it is: a non-issue.

      Because “protesting” is VOLUNTARY. You don’t get a pass for being a sheep.

      This issue is UNFAIRNESS! Other students have been busting their asses off to prepare for the final as scheduled! It is not right that one’s activities off campus can give them an extension! If this were a blog about the students involved in sports, I would feel the same. It is one thing when a final is missed due to an emergency. Postponing due to lack of being prepared, NO! As future attorneys they need to know how to meet deadlines and prepare for assigned dates! In their field, extensions are due to gaining further evidence and requires cooperation from the other parties involved in the case. Thus, that was not the best comparison to be used.

        It’s almost as if you both didn’t bother reading what I said and decided to respond to me anyway. I addressed everything both of you said in my comment, and you both responded with talking points that didn’t address anything I said. Who’s the sheep?

        Fairness – Like I said above, every student will be given the option to take the test at the later date, so nobody will get preferential treatment. That’s how these things work.

        Extensions – The students used the designated (by the schools well in advance, not specific to this example) channels to request an extension, just as they would in a case. And lol at your view of how extensions are granted in court. That was a throwaway joke I made b/c extensions are incredibly easy to get in court, just as they are for finals at school. Why do you think people wait years in some cases to even go to trial?

        Given that nobody who wants to take the final at the later date will be unable to, this is not unfair to anybody. So, again I ask, why are you so upset? Is it your opinion that private institutions (which these schools all are) should be forced by the masses to do something against their internal rules and procedures? Follow up question: Are you a communist?

          Also, you’ll notice I haven’t said much about the protests themselves, just the right of students at a private institution to petition that institution using the channels available to them, which is between the students at that institution and the people making the decisions there, not a bunch of knuckleheads on the internet.

          I am a realist that is tired of being witness to the sense of entitlement and lack of accountability for one’s actions!

    It’s like you crawl in my head,organize my thoughts, and with great wit and sarcasm write the most epic description of how I feel about current news and happenings in the U.S.

    It is called multitasking! If they want their voices to be heard and obtain their degree they need to also fit in time for studying! If they are allowed to postpone their finals then I hope that the students that were not involved with the protesting begin a protest of their own. They need to do it during the “make-up” finals right in the rooms that the “activists” are in! Right in the hallway! Block their ability to access the building to take them in! This is just b.s.! I truly hope that the petitions are just a stall tactic to prevent the “voices that need to be heard” from posing issues during the scheduled finals!
