BUFFALO, NY, April 18, 2013 ( – A professor at the University of Buffalo had to be dragged away in handcuffs after an obscenity-laced rant against a group of pro-life students running a university-approved display.

Laura Curry, a professor of media studies at that public university, was arrested for disorderly conduct after screaming at members of the Students for Life organization. They had erected a display containing a graphic image of an aborted infant alongside images of other mass killings, including lynchings of black Americans and the Holocaust. Curry used strong profanity in the course of her rant, which went on for several minutes before police intervened.

She then turned her anger on the cops.

“Where does it say I can’t use the f–k word in public?” Curry screamed at the police. “I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.”


“I can swear in public because that is profane,” she yelled, gesturing toward the image of the bloodied victim of abortion. “That image is swearing to me. That is profane to me.”

“That image is f—ing profane,” she screamed repeatedly, while police placed her in handcuffs.

As the officers led her away from the shocked crowd, she asked them to notify her 1 p.m. class that she had been arrested and would therefore be unable to lecture that day.
