“These metrics shall be used as a factor in determining police department funding and officer compensation”
This stems from a story we covered recently. The bodycam footage exonerated the police.
Campus Reform reports:
Black Student Union demands that campus police must submit data to university’s Equity Task Force
The group also demands that the university police department record and present metrics on all interactions with student organizations and events to the Equity Task Force and Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging every month.
“These metrics shall be used as a factor in determining police department funding and officer compensation,” the group states in an Apr. 12 letter posted on Instagram.
After a video surfaced of a black student named Adonis Tuggle being restrained by a campus police officer after resisting arrest following a domestic incident, the Purdue BSU condemned the actions as “police brutality.”
The officer “used reasonable force to overcome Mr. Tuggle’s resistance and avoided a potentially dangerous situation. At no time did Officer Selke choke Mr. Tuggle,” according to a report from the Madison County Prosecutor.
Additionally, the report stated that Tuggle will not face charges for his domestic incident, however, “probable cause exists for multiple criminal charges.”
Purdue’s BSU still called the police encounter “unnecessary,” claiming it “blemishes Purdue’s rating as one of the safest campuses in the nation.”
