Self-described "nonviolent activist" Katya Komisaruk (thus was she billed recently at UCLA) is attempting to insult our intelligences. Her behavior at the time of her so-called "protest" was anything but nonviolent. And she is a very dangerous woman because she is stupid.
A prison sentence would only make a martyr out of her, in her own eyes and the eyes of the handful of misguided idealists who believe her behavior was justified and her ideas right. She should be condemned to several years of public service, taking care of retarded children or the elderly, in order to be able to apply her generosity to a deserving cause.
