Let’s Bring Back ‘In Loco Parentis’

Nobody ever said civil disobedience was safe. When protesters take to the freeways to make their outrage known, it’s a wonder more people aren’t struck by surprised or angry motorists.

That’s what happened to Maria Ana Carrola Flores, a student at the University of California, San Diego. Flores was among 500 or so demonstrators who marched from the La Jolla campus to Interstate 5 in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, 2016. They were angry about a presidential election that didn’t go their way.

Interstate 5 in San Diego is always busy, even at 1:30 a.m. Although a Caltrans truck was attempting to stop traffic, a motorist drove around and struck the young woman. Flores was knocked unconscious and suffered multiple fractures.
Naturally, Flores is suing Caltrans and the driver of the car that hit her. But she’s also suing UCSD and the UC Regents, which is where things get interesting.

    sac bee link does not work. Went to website directly and there is no article. Appears to have been pulled. Check the local rag SD Union-trib. Maybe has more info. As a long time San Diegan I wouldn’t touch that site with someone else’s computer.

    The University would be damned if they do damned if they don’t. Damned if they violate the all important First Amendment right to block public roads in protest, and damned if they fail to keep the 20 something children from getting hurt by playing in traffic.
