“Armed police create an environment of coercion, not consent”
This is so dumb. If there was an attack on the school, who would defend the students?

Democratic Socialist Students Demand Campus Police Disarm
Democratic socialist students at a New York university are demanding that campus police disarm, according to a Thursday report.
Stony Brook University’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter published a four-page manifesto claiming that university President Samuel Stanley “has the capacity to revoke firearms from the possession of university police,” reported Campus Reform.
“It has been empirically demonstrated that university police are ineffective in the use of firearms, regardless of the quality of training,” the campus group argued. “Furthermore, the militarization of university police promotes confrontation through violence, as opposed to social engagement, as the solution to mass shootings in America.”
“Armed police create an environment of coercion, not consent,” alleged the students.
Stony Brook’s Students for Justice in Palestine, Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, and College Democrats groups joined with the democratic socialists in a March 28 campus march for gun control, according to The Statesman. Unlike other groups, the College Democrats did not demand the disarming of the campus police, instead they requested active shooter training for students and police.
