Every college that receives federal funding should be audited to get these lunatics out!
A Cypress College professor is on leave after a Zoom video of a heated discussion with a student who called police “heroes” in class went viral recently.
The incident took place during a recorded online session and began after student Braden Ellis gave a presentation on cancel culture and police for a class on verbal communications. In the discussion that followed, the professor interrupted him multiple times, not agreeing with his support of law enforcement, according to the video.
A nearly three-minute clip of the exchange — which was widely circulated online and has since garnered national attention — begins after the presentation.
Throughout the discussion, the professor interrupts the student and presses him on various points about policing in America.
“I think cops are heroes and they have to have a difficult job,” Ellis said in the video. “But we have to have …”
At that point, the teacher interrupts, asking, “All of them?”
“I’d say a good majority of them,” he responded, noting that there are “bad people in every business.”
At that point, he’s cut off again by the teacher.
“A lot of police officers have committed an atrocious crime and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted of any of it,” she said.
“This is not popular to say, but I do support our police and we have bad people and the people that do bad things should be brought to justice. I agree with that,” he responded.
“They haven’t,” the instructor interjects. Ellis said he agreed with her on that point, but then she interrupted him again.
“So what is your bottom line point? You’re saying police officers should be revered, viewed as heroes?” she asked.
“I think they are heroes, in a sense,” he answered.
The conversation continued with the professor at one point saying she didn’t trust the police and wouldn’t call them in an emergency situation because, “My life’s more in danger in their presence.”
On Monday, Ellis told KTLA he felt attacked during the exchange.
