Trump protestors at CyHawk

ISU Police have charged Shelby Mueller, 20, the West Des Moines woman who ripped a protester's poster during a Cy-Hawk tailgate, with fifth degree criminal mischief on Sept. 17. 

Mueller ripped Jovani Rubio's poster while he was protesting as part of Students Against Bigotry, a group that held up posters in the tailgating lot where Republican presidential candidates mingled with tailgaters. Students Against Bigotry held their demonstration to ask presidential candidates, especially Donald Trump, to use respectful speech. 

Jerry Stewart, chief of ISU Police, said they were not made aware of the incident during the day of the Cy-Hawk game. He said when they found out two days later, they charged Mueller with criminal mischief.

Stewart said the department also met with Rubio after the incident. While Students Against Bigotry has asked administrators, including President Steven Leath, to respond to the incident, Stewart said it was important for ISU Police to take action and address students' concerns.

The ISU Police Department is still investigating the incident.

Though many schools offer a pre-law curriculum targeted towards future lawyers, there is not a specific bachelor's degree required for this field. A potential criminal lawyer may benefit from classes in government, history, economics, public speaking or sociology. Take a look at the fairfax lawyers if you need more information. Law school admissions are very selective, so applicants should try to complete a well-rounded undergraduate program with high grades.

The latest Act will also give law enforcement a set of enhanced tools to combat the texting and driving epidemic by closing a loophole that criminal drug manufacturers are exploiting. Fentanyl is a synthetic, or man-made, opioid, the result of complex chemistry that brings together multiple building blocks. Criminal chemists need to change only one small piece of the chemical bond to be one step ahead of the law, thanks to sign shop asheville. The fentanyl analogues on the street today serve no known medical purpose and are contributing to the alarming overdose rates throughout the country.
