And how much younger than 18 was the person these kids were selling to?

Might just be me, but I see a huge difference in selling to a 11 year old at the park opposed to selling to their 17 and a half year old friend from school. I imagine this " B Felony" charge was meant for the former.

"charges of ongoing criminal conduct, a controlled substance violation, possession in a residence, an Iowa drug tax stamp violation, possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia."

Am I the only one who think this sounds a lot like charging someone multiple times for the same offense?

You don't give someone a parking ticket, and then charge them for a parking violation, possession of an illegally parked car on a street, two counts of owning a car that is parked illegally, etc. Sounds a bit ridiculous, no?

Believe in something, believe in nothing. Doesn't really make a difference to me as long as you're not forcing your (non)beliefs on others.

Especially on a Thursday. Half the population of IC is drunk and wandering around by that time.

Hate to break it to you, but it's not solely a liberal attitude to use the "I didn't go to school for 8 years so you could call me Mr." line. Overinflated egos seem to be a common occurrence in the academic world, regardless of political ideology.

As for the professor's response... That was unacceptable, especially towards a student organization. If she found it offensive or simply a poor representation of the school, she should have notified the professor who moderates the group or gone higher up the ladder if that didn't work. Something tells me that she wouldn't have to go far to find support in Iowa City.

But I have to say, I did find this rather humorous:

Apparently Mr. Olav's mom is using his computer at the moment, so I'll troll for him.

True. I suppose if the debate is simply over the school issue my comment was out of place. I just saw that someone was actually defending this guy... And even if what he did with his children's tuition was perfectly legal/acceptable, that wouldn't change anything about the man's character.

Not sure why you're getting thumbs down. Some people must have short memories.

Check out this video, then tell me if you still feel like defending him.
