As counsel for Mr. Stanton, I wanted to provide /confirm some information that has been circulated, but not confirmed. "We can't be having this".
"We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, welcoming and ultimately safe place for people and ideas from all corners of our society and all around the world". "Tim and other ISO members are in the process of reaching out to police, prosecutors, and this student's family and friends to have charges dropped immediately and to ensure his quick release from jail".
The Philippine president, who has been hostile to Barack Obama for criticizing his deadly anti-drug crackdown, has congratulated Donald Trump for a "well-deserved victory" and said he is excited to meet Russian leader.
"We were here to sort of talk peacefully if they had any questions about what Trump supporters actually believe", he said.
The protest that Adams was taking part in started in front of a library, and grew larger with more students and people from off campus, including seniors and children. He pleaded not guilty in Franklin County Court Tuesday morning, and bail was set at US$2,500.
