‘Game of Thrones’ Punishment Stopped But Not Done

‘Game of Thrones’ Punishment Stopped But Not Done

A Bergen Community College professor who was suspended for 8 days earlier this year over posting of an online photo has seen his record cleared.

Bergen Community College suspended 47-year old professor Francis Schmidt for posting a photo of his 7-year old daughter Sophia wearing a “Game of Thrones’ tee-shirt. The shirt read: “I will take what is mine with fire and blood.”

Schmidt said school officials took the word “fire” as a perceived threat of shooting at the school, according to the New York Daily News. A school official said to Schmidt, “When you see the word fire, then someone shows up with an AK-47 here shooting everybody.”

NorthJersey.com reports the BCC officials sent Schmidt a letter Sept. 29 agreeing to remove the suspension from his record. The college admitted they may have violated Schmidt’s constitutional right to free speech. But Schmidt is not satisfied, saying his reputation has suffered.
