Pro-marriage student barred from campus at Providence College

Pro-marriage student barred from campus at Providence College

[Apparently PC’s policy of handling threats of rape and/or murder against a student is to remove the student rather than the threat-makers! – AQ Tom]

Things continue getting stranger and stranger at Providence College. The student at Providence College who recently found himself threatened [with rape and murder] after posting flyers in support of traditional marriage has now been barred from campus, after the college’s vice president of student affairs filed a restraining order against him.

Vice President for Student Affairs Kristine Goodwin claimed that student Michael Smalanskas, who graduated this spring, stared at her for approximately five seconds at the school’s commencement Mass and shouted her name at another Mass.

“While his words were not expressly threatening, his actions toward me have escalated quickly,” Goodwin wrote in a complaint, according to The Daily Caller.

She also expressed concerns that Smalanskas’ father was a police officer. “I am also afraid of Mr. Smalanskas’s parents, especially his father, who has access to weapons,” she stated.

In response, Smalankas said, “Any reasonable person must conclude that this constitutes retaliation by Kristine Goodwin and Providence College. For months, her grave incompetence as vice president for student affairs has been on display. Now, in what appears to be revenge tactics, she and the college have acted shamefully and recklessly.”
