UTexas students storm move-in event to demand ‘Cops off Campus’

On August 24, a coalition of left-wing student groups stormed a move-in event at the University of Texas at Austin’ meant to welcome new students to campus, demanding “Cops off Campus.”

The protest took place during the “Gone to Texas” event, celebrating thousands of new students moving into their dorms. The group chanted as the school’s band performed, including during its performance of controversial UT alma mater “Eyes of Texas.”

The group unveiled a large banner with the words, “Students & Workers Demand Cops Off Campus” plastered on the front.

The protest was the effort of multiple groups at the University including Cops Off Campus, UT Direct Action, and Underpaid at UT.

UT student Logan Rogers told the Austin Statesman that the groups targeted this particular event with the purpose of reaching a large audience, recruiting new students to their cause, and informing new students of the past and present issues the University deals with.

And, how many of the movers-in pushed the troublemakers aside?

How many move-iners decided to not move in and look for another college?

Yet another problem with public funding of higher education: it makes the campus a public space.

A private university would have the ability to simply expel any students involved in this nonsense, and then charge any non-students with criminal trespass.

Such a university would also have the ability to expel any student attempting to form a Young Republicans chapter on campus, so it’s a double-edged sword, but personally I’m starting to take a Dean Wormer attitude to this whole thing: if you’re at university for any reason other than passing your classes and getting your degree, you shouldn’t be at university. Do that shit on your own time and off campus.

    “Such a university would also have the ability to expel any student attempting to form a Young Republicans chapter on campus, so it’s a double-edged sword”

    But they already do that now, so what’s the downside?
