A graduate instructor at the University of Illinois was arrested after being caught on camera assaulting conservative students, stealing a man’s phone and throwing it on the ground.
Campus Reform reports,
Tariq Khan is a PhD candidate at the university and has taught courses such as “Constructing Race in America” and ‘U.S. Gender History since 1877.’ He is also involved with various anarchist and communist organizations including Black Rose Anarchist Federation and Antifa, in addition to working with the undergraduate socialist students. The incident has been reported to University of Illinois police, and Khan was placed under arrest and issued a notice to appear to appear in court for criminal damage to property, with police valuing the cell phone at $700. This violent altercation comes three weeks after Khan aided the campus student government in shutting down the university’s homecoming parade for including a float celebrating the school’s former mascot ‘Chief Illiniwek.’
