Letter: ASU Code of Conduct violates First Amendment

Beware the power of the ASU Code of Conduct (aka the Code of Silence). The following words of “designed to balance the rights and needs of the individual with the responsibility of the individual to meet the needs of the community” could have easily come out of an NSA handbook.

ASU must err on the side of free speech. In the case of Tau Kappa Epsilon, there should be no penalty for the individuals involved. Those involved are being properly served by the court of public opinion.
