Georgetown students want ‘sanctuary campus’ for protesters, but not police

Georgetown University students created a petition demanding that the school become a sanctuary campus for protesters.

The GUSA and The Corp, a student group made “to assert and protect the inherent rights of its members [students] and the community,” joined together to “urge the university to establish Georgetown’s main and downtown campuses as sanctuary spaces.” These areas would be “open to protestors and closed to external police or security forces.”

Georgetown allowed protesters on its campus “in the aftermath of the May Day protests of 1971.” The petition states that Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department “stormed campus without the written consent of the university” and protesters were “inundated with tear gas and driven onto our grounds.” These events left students with “eroded trust” of the “university’s leadership and their willingness to allow MPD on campus.”

The petition came in response to recent demands that Georgetown “cease all relationships with any police department.” The university would have to “end all contracts and relationships with police departments” to show its commitment in “the fight against racism and hatred.”

It gained further support at a Georgetown University Student Association Senate meeting. The senate unanimously passed a resolution that Georgetown adhere to the demands in the petition. A sanctuary campus is needed, the resolution states, because “students of color, feel uncomfortable and unsafe” around police forces, and they often have a “fear of retaliation or intimidation.”

Let ’em have it their way – a homeless encampment with no police to keep a lid on them. Make way for a new wave of “Me too” claims. Or do the homeless have immunity to such. (Maybe they’re all democrats?)

Any students who don’t like it can go enroll in Wesley college or some other university with no “safe spaces”. (Should’a gone there in the first place.) They might actually get the chance to learn something useful!

Georgetown not the first…

For example, Penn State, the ‘Sanctuary City for Paedophiles’, has for decades operated a child sex trafficking enterprise, grooming tens of thousands of innocent children for the sexual depravity of well connected politicians, wealthy donors, and high ranking university administrators. Penn State bribed former FBI Director Louis Freeh to whitewash the scandal, and then delivered several young boys to former Democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell for his hideous depravity in exchange for the early release of Pedophile State from NCAA sanctions. Newly unsealed documents revealed George Mitchell’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein…. Does the media possess the journalistic integrity to investigate the George Mitchell-Louis Freeh-Paedophile State-Joel Myers-Barry Myers international child sex trade operation?

What exactly does “sanctuary campus” mean? Surely they can’t actually keep the police out if they know a suspect is on campus and want to come in. So what’s the point of saying they will?

From the article, a quote: “…students of color, feel uncomfortable and unsafe …”

Why the misplaced comma? Is this the result of an incomplete quote or another example of ignorance in “higher” education? They need to pay attention to such details.
