Student protesters may face suspension and expulsion for blocking the entrance to the building where book author Heather MacDonald was scheduled to speak, said a Claremont McKenna College spokesperson:

Joann Young, director of media relations at the school, said via email that campus officials will review videos, photos and social media posts as part of a thorough investigation into the matter, during which Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” had her speech effectively shut down after a throng of roughly 250 rowdy protesters blockaded the doors.

Mac Donald ended up livestreaming her speech to a near-empty room as demonstrators outside banged on windows and shouted “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter.”

Young said those found responsible face a range of possible sanctions, “including but not limited to temporary or permanent separation from the college.”
