Freedom of speech or did she cross the line?

University at Buffalo professor Laura Curry, a professor of film at the University of Buffalo, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after she went into a profanity-laced rant directed towards a group of pro-life students who had a display set up on the UB North Campus in Amherst.

Curry, 55, in the video can be heard saying, “Where does it say I can’t use the [expletive] word in public. I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.”

There were images in the pro-life display outside of the student union that apparently offended Curry.

“I can swear in public because that is profane,” she said referring to the display. “That image is swearing to me. That is profane to me.”

UB did not offer an apology for their staff member as of now.

The University of Buffalo strives to create an environment in which diverse opinions can be expressed and heard,” the statement read. “As a public university, it is a fundamental value of UB that all members of the campus community and their invited guests have a right to peacefully express their views and opinions, regardless of whether others may disagree with those expressions.”

Kicker of the whole thing? “Would you let my class know I’m under arrest,” she asked as officers slapped some handcuffs on her.

Here’s the video. Warning: Language is not suitable for work.
