A part-time instructor at Fort Lewis College in Colorado kicked the leg of a student wearing a College Republicans sweat shirt at an off-campus restaurant. According to student Mark O’Donnell, his assailant, Maria Spero, then said “she should have kicked me harder and higher.”
Spero, a visiting instructor of modern languages, apologized to O’Donnell in a letter dated Oct. 29.
“I acted entirely inappropriately by kicking you, giving vent to a thoughtless knee-jerk political reaction that should never have happened,” she wrote. “Before the incident, I did not know you and that you are a Fort Lewis student.”
Actually, it’s not OK to kick non-students either.
