Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

A jury handed down a staggering $11 million verdict against Oberlin for a smear campaign against a local business, and it awarded another $33 million in punitive damages to the targeted mom-and-pop store, Gibson's Food Market and Bakery. It began when a black student with two friends attempted to shoplift wine from the store, and the owner's son pursued and detained him. Police arrested the students, who were charged with crimes. Oberlin College's Student Senate passed a resolution declaring, "Gibson's has a history of racial profiling and discriminatory treatment of students and residents alike." The school suspended its longtime business with Gibson's, and Oberlin's Department of Africana Studies posted a comment on Facebook: "Their food is rotten and they profile black students."

Punitive damages are $33 million on top of the $11 million.

This will be appealed.

They should declare bankruptcy and not pay a dime.
That's how the Fuhrer of the alt-right (R)tards does it.
