TENNESSEE: Vanderbilt Employee Busted Throwing Out Copies Of Local LGBT Paper

Security cameras at Vanderbilt University revealed that an employee has been removing copies of the local LGBT paper and throwing them in the garbage.
The papers were editions of Out & About, a monthly publication geared toward Nashville's gay and lesbian community. For Out & About Editor Patrick Armstrong, it answers a frustrating and lingering question over what has been happening. It's our work being thrown in the garbage can," Armstrong said. "This had been going on for a year." Police said the woman, identified as a longtime Vanderbilt employee, is seen in two different surveillance videos taking all the papers from a newsstand in Light Hall. Channel 4 is not identifying the woman because she has not been charged, but officers said she admitted throwing the papers in recycle bins.
Since the paper is free, the woman cannot be charged with theft. Future issues on campus will cost 50 cents so that an arrest can be made if she strikes again.
