A student at the University of Connecticut was almost arrested for saying the n-word on video.
A University of Connecticut student who was arrested for using the n-word has narrowly avoided jail.
Jarred Karal was arrested after he was filmed walking through a parking lot and shouting the word “n*gger.” He was with two other individuals, one of whom was also arrested.
The students claimed they were playing a game centered around screaming vulgar words, but were charged under CGS 53-37, “ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race.”
Karal was originally facing up to 30 days in jail, but a judge accepted Karal’s plea for accelerated rehabilitation, under which he will spend 6 months on probation while completing 20 hours of community service.
The student will also be forced to under go “diversity and bias” training.
Obviously, we shouldn’t be saying the N-word. There is no question it is a slur and it has a very ugly history.
However, that doesn’t mean this entire story isn’t something that should scare everyone. The bottom line is that in America we have the right to Free Speech. Our First Amendment protects your right to speak your mind even if it is disgusting what you are saying.
My initial reaction to this story was that it was something out of a communist country. Say something that you aren’t supposed to and we will threaten you with jail and force you to go “diversity and bias training”.
