She should be unceremoniously removed from her job and publicly humiliated.

OSU Administrator Stephanie Clemons Thompson Slammed Attack Related Post

OSU administrator Stephanie Clemons Thompson took to social media to defend a terrorist who tried to murder her students.
Ohio State University administrator Stephanie Clemons Thompson is under fire for showing public sympathy for a terrorist who attempted to commit mass-murder of innocent people on November 28th, and she referenced Black Lives Matter while doing it.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee who also resided in Pakistan, was a student at OSU. After an anti-American rant on social media, Artan drove his vehicle into a crowd of innocent people on campus, exited the vehicle and began to hack at his victims with a butcher knife before he was gunned down by hero, OSU Police Officer Alan Horukjo. He succeeded in injuring 11, and could have injured or killed many more during his rampage if he wasn’t neutralized by Officer Horukjo.

Thompson, who currently holds the position of assistant director of resident life, went to Facebook with her sympathy, not for the victims, but for the attacker. In her post, Thompson reminds her readers that Artan “was a BUCKEYE, a member of our family”. She went on to say, “I pray you find compassion for his life, as troubled as it clearly was”.
One has to question the intent of someone who’s shown compassion for the “troubled” life of a terrorist- reportedly influence by the radical Islamic hate group ISIS- who attempted to kill innocent people. But at the end of her post, Thompson showed her own influence and intended message. She ended the post with the hashtags “#BuckeyeStrong #BlackLivesMatter #SayHisName”, the latter two in reference to the anti-police hate group. She has since removed her post, but not before many people outraged by her comments saved the image.

Needless to say, her view of the incident and attacker has not been well received by the OSU community, as well as by people around the country. An online petition on change.org, created by Brock Jenkins, called for her immediate firing. In the associated statement, the petitioner said:

“Stephanie Clemons Thompson used Facebook as a public platform to shame those who were grateful and relieved the terrorist was taken out so quickly, preventing even more unthinkable terror and destruction in his wake. Because this man was taken out so quickly his goal of murder was foiled and his victims will live on. Stephanie Clemons Thompson, however, condemns this sentiment of relief by prioritizing the feelings of the terrorist over his innocent victims, their families, and the Buckeye community as a whole.

Furthermore, bringing the group #BlackLivesMatter into her post as a defense to these heinous acts only further promotes the violent and racially divided rhetoric being flooded by our media. That racial divide goes against the morals and principals OSU stands for. Her actions, as an employee, reflect on the university.”

As of this writing, the petition has been signed by over 1000 supporters.

Thompson, who holds a major administrative position with a university in which a terrorist attack took place, obviously has shown more compassion for the terrorist than that of his victims. It is just as obvious, in referencing Black Lives Matter, that Thompson showed her true racial bias and was against the justified killing of this terrorist by a hero police officer who thankfully was close enough to stop him before the terrorist injured or killed others.
