    A Massachusetts law professor has created a campus firestorm with an email to colleagues that declares it would be "shameful" to send care packages to U.S. troops "who have gone overseas to kill other human beings."
    Michael Avery, a professor at Suffolk University Law School, sent a five-paragraph email to colleagues in response to a school-wide appeal for care packages for deployed soldiers, Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reports.
    "I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings," Avery wrote.

    The Professor is entitled to his opinion.

    God willing, rational, decent human beings will ignore it and tell him to go fuck himself.

    It does appear as though the story is accurate. There is a statement from the University, and several groups regarding the content of the email.

    He apparently also objected to the University displaying the flag. I wonder if he understands that, if it wasn't for those warriors who he appears to despise, he perhaps would not have the freedom to make his obnoxious remarks.

    Free speech. It's a funny thing.

    This is America, and we all have a right to say whatever we believe, even if what we believe may piss off other Americans, so I support his right to say what he's said.

    However.................

    I also support the rights of myself and others that tell this man to go fuck himself.
