College Police Shut Down Free Speech

A student at the University Park campus of Penn State University (PSU) was told he was required to have a permit to demonstrate while conducting a free speech wall and distributing Constitutions Friday afternoon.

Young Americans for Liberty member Kevin Caputo was in an area of campus that the university deems “suitable for expressive activity” when he was approached by a campus police officer who told him they needed a permit from the university in order to demonstrate or protest on campus property.

Most of Friday’s incident was caught on video by a field representative for the Leadership Institute and shared with Campus Reform. The video begins as the police officer approaches the area to ask who the free speech wall belongs to.
