Campus Police Told to Remain Neutral as Students Vandalize Pro-Life Display
“Two officers told the student group that they could not stop the vandalism”
Several times a year, we report on a campus pro-life display being destroyed. How much longer are conservative students supposed to put up with stuff like this?
The Daily Caller reports:
Campus Cops Told To Remain ‘Neutral’ When Pro-Life Display Was Vandalized. Now There’s Blowback
A legal nonprofit admonished a university Monday for letting its campus officers say they were remaining “neutral” by turning a blind eye to vandalism of a pro-life display.
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms told the University of Victoria to uphold the rule of law on its campus after its police did nothing to stop students tearing flags out of a pro-life display, according to a press release obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Youth Protecting Youth, a pro-life group, received permission from the University of Victoria to put up 10,000 miniature pink and blue flags in November representing the 100,000 annual Canadian abortions. Protesters informed the student group that if the group did not remove the flags, the protesters would do so themselves. The protesters started doing exactly that after Youth Protecting Youth called the campus police.
Two officers told the student group that they could not stop the vandalism because it could be perceived as police support for Youth Protecting Youth, and that intervening with the protesters could “escalate” the situation.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Perhaps members of the Pro-Life group should carry pepper spray, and deploy it on the protestors because they felt that the protestors were threatening them.
The DOJ needs to forcefully enforce free-speech and other civil rights on campus. The Campus administration and Campus Police knowingly allowing these violations against Pro-Life demonstrators. This condoning of violence by leftists is not neutral at all when you are the authority responsible for the safety and rights of all people on campus.
Snowflake cops? If the situation “escalated,” they could have called in some real cops from another agency.
If all these campus police do is watch the vandalism, security cameras would be a lot less expensive and more useful as a video record would exist.
I speak as a former cop where we actually protected people and property and enforced the law as we were paid to do.
It would seem these guys got their training from the same place as the bank security guard in that LifeLock commercial!
The University of Victoria is in Canada. not in the USA.
It would appear that our friends to the north are on a faster track then we are to turn themselves into a People’s Reublic.
I missed that this was in Canada. They still have free speech but it is slowly being restricted. Prof. Jordan Peterson has come to popularity due to the recent C-16 legislation which further complicates things. As I have followed a number of these cases C-16 the most recent, none of these laws and regulations permit violence and vandalism by leftist activists. All the laws are regarding speech which in theory is written to be available to all. The administration and the campus police at the Uni in Victory Canada should be held to the fire. The likelihood without widespread public outrage or notoriety of this happening North of the border is slim to none.
