Guilty Until Proven Innocent

CCBC-Catonsville has barred a veteran from campus for a piece he wrote for an English class, received an A on, and was encouraged by his instructor to seek publication. In it, he talks about the appeal of killing. This is very different from saying he will kill in the future.

Many of these veterans have gone through hell and many are having trouble re-integrating with life stateside, especially with the economy in its current state. Now it appears that community colleges also require them to be dishonest in their writings or face threat of losing access to campus, education, and perhaps a future career.
