Portland State University to Fully Unarm Campus Police by September 1st

“The university had said it would make that change in 2020, but it was unable to meet that goal.”

Portland is kind of a huge breeding ground for Antifa. What could possibly go wrong?

The Associated Press reports, via Oregon Live:

Portland State University campus police to be fully unarmed by September

Portland State University said Friday its police officers will start patrolling campus unarmed by Sept. 1.

The university had said it would make that change in 2020, but it was unable to meet that goal. Oregon Public Broadcasting reported.

The initial announcement of disarming officers on PSU’s campus came about two years after university police fatally shot Jason Washington, a Black man who was reportedly attempting to break up a fight.

Portland State University President Stephen Percy wrote in a message to the campus community Friday that Campus Public Safety Chief Willie Halliburton has committed to beginning unarmed campus patrols before the start of the fall term.

“I appreciate the leadership of Chief Halliburton and members of the CPSO team for their commitment to innovation in campus safety,” Percy wrote.

It’s time for all the PSU cops to quit.

How many lawsuits from injured security personnel will it take to reverse the decision? I expect the first incident report will be filed before September 14th.

“Unarmed” instead of disarmed? Are they going to cut their arms off?
