University student who desecrated 9/11 flag display faces $500 fine and indefinite probation

"I did not violate any university or legal policy. Now go away," Fadel initially claimed. Staff members disagreed.

The Washington University student senator who was caught throwing out flags in front of the school on the morning of September 11, is now facing charges for his actions.

According to Campus Reform, Fadel Alkilani faced charges of lying to the university, theft, and interference with other university community members to "engage in educational, recreational, residential, administrative, professional, business, and ceremonial activities."

As previously reported, the suspect said he did it to protest "American imperialism" and the Iraq War.

He also responded to inquiries by saying "I did not violate any university or legal policy. Now go away."

Alkilani will have to pay $500 in damages for the flags he stole and has been placed on academic probation for the rest of his time at school. That means if Fadel gets into trouble again, it’ll be easy for the school to suspend and/or expel him.

He also painted himself as a victim of Islamophobia in statements on social media.

The Young America's Foundation (YAF) is said to have applied pressure to the school to deal with this matter. YAF had worked with the school’s Republican group to put together the flag memorial in the first place.

Some faculty and students at Washington University attempted to justify in the days following Fadel’s actions.

Washington University College Republicans chairman Nick Rodriguez told YAF, "This case was a unique one, and understanding the lack of precedence, it would have been great to see the school clearly state they would not stand for this behavior. College Republicans plan to pursue his impeachment from the Student Union."

On top of the rest of his punishment, Alkilani will have to write an apology essay that shows remorse for his actions.
