BREAKING: Mizzou’s Melissa Click gets off with community service for assaulting students

Physically assault student journalists at the University of Missouri and you’ll get a slap on the wrist.

Communications Prof. Melissa Click took a “deferred prosecution agreement” with the city prosecutor after she tried to “muscle” out student reporters covering a protest last fall, and will instead serve 20 hours of community service, the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office said Friday.


If she attacks any more student journalists – like Tim Tai or our own new writer Mark Schierbecker – her prosecution will resume, the office said.

Click was charged with assault Monday and suspended by Mizzou Wednesday. She’s in the midst of the tenure review process.
