However, after seeing this, I’m glad the University of Chicago isn’t on his list of preferred schools.
On Monday, Chicago police apprehended several suspects involved in an armed robbery who had fled from officers onto the University of Chicago’s campus.
The crisis, which prompted an alert from the university urging the campus community to shelter in place, also prompted some students to go into hysterics on social media.
They weren’t worried about the dangers of gun violence—no, they were furious at police.
From calling them “pigs” to demanding their disarmament, some students expressed fury at both the Chicago and University of Chicago police forces, who had come to protect and serve.
What’s more, even though no students were harmed and the suspects were arrested without a single shot being fired, some students began calling for the abolition of police.
“there were militarized cops (literally carrying assault rifles) crawling all over campus looking for armed, african-american men. a black student could’ve worn a striped shirt (like one of the robbers)… reached for a phone at the wrong time… etc. and could have been shot,” one student tweeted. “Anywho … disarm/abolish the police.:
“UCPD is absolutely worthless thank you for coming to my ted talk,” tweeted another student.
A third offered this on social media: “dear god we’re gonna have to listen to c*llege r*publicans talk about how this proves we need more cops.”
This reporter reached out to several of the commenters regarding what kind of solution they would support instead of the police, but only received the following answer from one student: “We should arm the working class, disarm the pigs.”
Ah, young leftists speaking
truth bull shit to power. Who wants to bet that these pinheads would be railing against police had one of these thugs the cops were chasing would have hurt a student?
