U. Minnesota Students Hold ‘Sit-in’ Demanding Campus Police be Disarmed

“This is essentially a reminder that we expect these demands to be met”

The crowd for this protest was laughably small.

The College Fix reports:

Students hold sit-in at U. Minnesota president’s office to demand campus cops be disarmed

A whopping eight University of Minnesota students held a sit-in at President Joan Gabel’s office on Friday to demand the disarmament of campus police.

They also demanded an “increase [in] the diversity of the student population,” for what it’s worth.

The protest by the Students for a Democratic Society kept alive the (former) issue from over a year ago, when almost double the number of Friday’s total demonstrated outside of UMPD headquarters.

According to the Minnesota Daily, the activists cleverly referred to their protest as a “study-in” because, after all, besides maintaining social justice bonafides, students are still responsible for doing classwork and taking exams!

From the story:

The sit-in is part of a broader campaign by the student group this year to demand action by the University.

“This is essentially a reminder that we expect these demands to be met,” said Jackson Bianchi, an organizer for the event. …

“The goal is to occupy space … to keep it chill and study,” said Jack Nimz, another SDS member who organized the event.

Comments

More parents need to use the word “no” when raising their kids.

And we expect Mr. Bianchi to stop wasting everyone’s time.

Diversity at U of MN = More Finns!! Too many Swedes and Norseman.

I am surprise no student trolled them with an airhorn.
