Hat tip Campus Reform

Eric Canin, a professor at Cal State University Fullerton, has been suspended due to an altercation he had with students on February 8 during a protest and counter-protest by College Republicans over the issue of a border wall.

There are conflicting reports over who accosted whom, and the video is rather inconclusive on that point. What is clear, however, is that Canin was involved in a rather unfriendly interchange with pro-wall students.

As a conservative who until recently was teaching part-time at UC Irvine, I learned that a teacher has to be very restrained when dealing with a student on the other side of an issue. While I never brought my personal views into the classroom, I did attend many events sponsored by the Muslim Student Union and Students for Justice in Palestine, as well as pro-Israel events. Things occasionally got heated, and I have had an occasional less than friendly exchange with speakers and officials of certain organizations,but when it comes to teacher-student exchanges, the teacher has to keep it professional.
