U. Virginia police officer shouts ‘Make America great again,’ forced to resign
A University of Virginia police officer has resigned for “abuse of a PA system” after he shouted “Make America great again” at students on election night.
According to The Cavalier Daily, student protesters who intruded on a Board of Visitors meeting back on the 11th included a demand for the firing of three officers allegedly associated with the public address “abuse,” and wanted a “re-evaluation of […] tuition dollars going to the University Police Department.”
A university investigation found only one officer violated PA protocols.
From the article:
“We believe any reasonable person would conclude that the inappropriate use of the PA system undermines the [University Police] Department’s goals and objectives and is detrimental to the department’s operation and the efficiency of the department,” a joint statement from Pat Hogan, University executive vice president and chief operating officer, and University Chief of Police Michael Gibson read.

Wow. Forced to resign over saying “make America great again”?
UVA needs to reconsider this.
If he said it as a non-violent way to disperse a disruptive crowd by sending them scurrying to their “safe spaces”, then maybe it was a pretty good tactic.
Reprimand? Yes. Firing? No. Way out of line, UVA. Control your students. The inmates are running the asylum again.
