An unidentified college professor was placed on a leave of absence after reprimanding a student for supporting local law enforcement, according to The Daily Wire.
The school stated, “The adjunct professor will be taking a leave of absence for the duration of her assignment at Cypress College.”
“This was her first course at Cypress and she had previously indicated her intention to not return in the fall.”
“So you brought up the police in your speech a few times. So, what is your main concern? Since, I mean honestly … the issue is systemic,” the professor said. “Because the whole reason we have police departments in the first place, where does it stem from? What’s our history? Going back to what [another classmate] was talking about, what does it stem from? It stems from people in the south wanting to capture runaway slaves.”
The conversation’s transcript reads as follows:
Ellis: I think [police] are heroes in a sense because they come to your need and they come and help you. They have problems just like every other business, but we should fix that —
Professor: It’s not a business. I think that’s the problem, is looking at it as a business. Because they’re actually supposed to protect and serve the people.
Ellis: They do protect us. Who do we call when we’re in trouble and someone has a knife or a gun?
Professor: I wouldn’t call the police.
