A college student is facing an assault charge after beating a pro-life activist in an unprovoked attack.
It is nothing new to read stories of “triggered” Millennial students, such as a traumatizing mural of George Washington in a high school that bears his name, but college student Jullian Ward allegedly attacked a pro-life activist after she was triggered by graphic posters of aborted babies.
Two young activists from Created Equal set up the display on the campus of University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to engage students about abortion.
One of the activists, Austin Beigel, has said he was the one who was attacked, The Daily Caller reported.
Beigel and a second activist were discussing the gloomy spring weather when Ward appeared.
“Did y’all put these up?” Ward asks in the two-minute-long video.
“Yep,” Beigel responds.
Without saying another word, she rushes him with a clenched fist and begins punching and kicking. The victim did not appear to fight back while the second activist repeatedly told her to stop.
“This is wrong,” she says, referring to the images. “This is triggering.”
(Editor's Note: The video below contains violence and graphic language).
Campus police were called to the scene and seemed to assure the pro-life activists that the alleged assault would not be ignored even though no handcuffs were coming out to take Ward away.
“It's an arrest by citation which means she'll have to go to court,” one of the officer explains. “She's going to have to do all that. She's still being charged with the crime.”
The Daily Caller obtained an arrest citation from the university, which confirmed that Ward, 19, is accused of hitting Beigel “in the face and stomach with her fist.”
No court date has been set.
