World Gone Mad: Columbia University Postpones Finals Over Eric Garner And Micheal Brown Trauma

I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't want any of these students being my future attorney.

A group of Columbia University law students demanded the school postpone their finals because of their “trauma” over the Eric Garner and Michael Brown grand jury decisions.

And the "politically correct" liberal higher-ups bought it.

An email was sent to the entire school by Interim Dean Robert Scott.  His public statement was that the decisions “have shaken the faith of some in the integrity of the grand-jury system and in the law more generally.”

He continued to say “students who feel that their performance on examinations will be sufficiently impaired due to the effects of these recent events” could apply to have their tests rescheduled.

The move outraged  students at the elite grad school, where first-semester final exams began Monday

In addition to postponing some students’ tests, the school planned to have a trauma expert on hand this week, and several faculty members scheduled special office hours next week “to talk about the implications of the Brown and Garner non-indictments.”

Scott’s Saturday announcement followed a series of demands made by the law school’s Coalition of Concerned Students of Color.

In a message posted on Coalition of Concerned Students of Color website Monday, the group said, “The administrations, response overlooks one of our concerns: that affected students of color should not be required to explain their trauma in order to be granted an exam postponement.”

I wonder what will happen when these future lawyers lose their first case or if their client goes to prison?  Will they commit suicide or check into a mental institution for a break down?

By the way was the trauma for the beheaded American's by Isis?
