Interesting. Not sure about this. I assume its a private organization and they can control their groups in certain ways that otherwise would be allowed.

I think the more important question is when did Student Government Associations actually get governmental powers to punish students? Weren't they just supposed to be the students' representatives to the Administration?

Aren't many involved in Title 9 investigations and stuff too?

In a separate statement, Jackson Fuentes, SGA Press Secretary, said "The SGA strongly affirms its belief in free speech and the rights of all students to express their opinions. Today’s report erroneously assigned a political context to a message meant only to remind students about heightened security and the consequences of altercations or other behaviors unbecoming of a University of Alabama student, as defined in the Capstone Creed.

“We look forward to cheering on the Crimson Tide, alongside the student body, on Saturday afternoon.”
