Outrage! A group at a Texas university is angry they have to move a 9/11 memorial to a less prominent part of campus. The Young Americans for Freedom group has set up nearly 3,000 flags on Southern Methodist University's Dallas Hall Lawn annually since 2010, The Dallas Morning News reported. But university officials recently told the group to relocate the display to Morrison-McGinnis Park because Dallas Hall Lawn is used for classes and a variety of events, said university spokesman Kent Best. SMU officials also had drafted a policy to ensure displays didn't include "harmful or triggering" messages, but they later removed the language from the then policy as inappropriate. By that time, though, some student groups said the new policy was an attack on free speech.
Todd spoke to Grant Wolf, leader of the Young Americans for Freedom group who says he doesn't believe it's the responsibility of the university to shield individuals from certain ideas that they might be offended by.
