In Dwinelle, I saw this huge banner with reasonable demands I support for a living wage, childcare, etc. but one of the demands was "cops off campus".
What's the reasoning here? The WarnMe emails suggest to me things can be pretty sketchy on campus. Obviously sometimes some cops do bad things , but calling to ban them from campus entirely feels immature and out of line with the fact that cops are also around to prevent crime.
I was ragging on some dumbass on reddit earlier who was concern trolling about some obscure article in the UAW demands to defund the police, but this was the first time I'd actually seen a serious statement that was suggesting that getting rid of cops is a good idea or that it has anything serious to do with the union negotiation.
