Melissa Click Faces More Criticism After Release Of Second Video

Columbia, Missouri  (KTRS)   A suspended University of Missouri assistant professor is once again coming under fire.

Over the weekend, the Columbia Missourian posted a video of Melissa Click during a protest at the homecoming parade last fall. The footage shows Click in a confrontation with Columbia Police. She can be seen yelling an obscenity at a police officer attempting to move protesters, including Click, off of a street where they were blocking a car carrying then-University of Missouri System President Timothy Wolfe.

Interim Chancellor Hank Foley has released a statement in response to this footage. Foley says ” Her conduct and behavior are appalling, and I am not only disappointed, I am angry, that a member of our faculty acted this way.”

Foley adds, “Her actions caught on camera last October, are just another example of a pattern of misconduct by Dr. Click—most notably, her assault on one of our students while seeking ‘muscle’ during a highly volatile situation on Carnahan Quadrangle in November. We must have high expectations of members of our community, and I will address these new revelations with the Board of Curators as they work to complete their own review of the matter.”

Meanwhile, Click says she’s been working with a PR firm to try to repair her image. Click told the Columbia Missourian she wants to keep her job and that she deserves to be treated fairly.
