From the Daily Caller:

Public universities across the nation are beginning to unjustly confine student’s right to free speech and open discussion to specific “free speech zones.”

Earlier this week, Arkansas Tech students Skyler Bowden and Jason Hammons were confronted by campus police while encouraging fellow students to sign a ‘Free Speech Ball’ promoting Young Americans for Liberty’s Fight for Free Speech campaign

…The police proceeded to inform Bowden and Hammons that if they wanted to continue their acts of free speech, they must move to the university’s “free speech zone,” which happened to be on the other side of campus.

Hammons then asked the officer, “So do the free speech zones actually trump the Constitution?” The officer confirms, claiming, “On campus, that’s the way it works.”
