EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: UW official tells conservative student with 'free speech ball' to move or face the cops
- A University of Wisconsin-River Falls official told a student using a free speech ball to recruit new members to her conservative student group that she first had to obtain permission to do so.
- The official told the student that if she refused to leave, then police would be notified.
A University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus official told a freshman student that police would be notified if she refused to get a permit before rolling a "free speech ball" around a grassy area of the public campus.
Sophie Salmon is a freshman at UW-River Falls who is trying to start a Turning Point USA chapter at her new school. As part of her recruitment efforts, Salmon inflated a six-foot “free speech ball” on Thursday. The ball was designed to serve as a platform for students to write whatever they pleased, but it also attracted the attention of university administrators.
