Suspended assistant professor apologizes after new video surfaces

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – An assistant University of Missouri communications professor who was suspended over a videotaped confrontation with student journalists is apologizing after new video surfaced.

The Kansas City Star reports that the latest video shows the school’s Homecoming parade in October, where demonstrators blocked then-system President Tim Wolfe’s vehicle. Police body camera footage shows Melissa Click telling police to “get your hands off the children” and cursing at an officer.

In a statement from the Texas company working with Click trying to restore her reputation, she says she’s “sorry” she cursed at police. Click says parade-goers were taunting the students and that she felt “afraid” for them.

Protests over race-related issues escalated in November, when video showed Click calling for “some muscle” to remove a student videographer from a demonstration.
