This from the KC Star:
The University of Kansas journalism professor who sent a tweet wishing violence on children of National Rifle Association members has been put on administrative leave..
David Guth’s remarks, which had led NRA leaders to calls for his firing, were in response to Monday’s shootings at the Washington Navy Yard that left 13 people dead.
University officials called his words “repugnant,” and on Friday Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said Guth would be put on leave.
“In order to prevent disruptions to the learning environment for students, the School of Journalism and the university, I have directed Provost Jeffrey Vitter to place Associate Professor Guth on indefinite administrative leave pending a review of the entire situation,” Gray-Little said in a statement.
