    College Student Stands up to "Woke" Professor

    Good for this young man--he's got more brains and composure than the silly professor who can't stop herself from interrupting.

    This sort of indoctrination should be banned from campus.

    Actually it might be good because kids like that one will learn how to think for themselves and stand up and argue with those in authority who shouldn't be in authority.

    I am glad more of this is getting filmed so parents can see what is happening and what they are paying for with college tuition!

    She's just factually wrong. The first organized police department in the US was established in Boston in the 1830's. In general, most of the earliest police forces were established in large northern cities during the mid-1800's.

    The professor is definitely lacking the level of maturity and impartiality that should be expected from a college professor. Incidentally, according to Fox News, the professor has taken a leave of absence for the remainder of the term. I expect that's a nice way of saying she has been terminated.

    The problem with claiming that policing evolved from slave patrols

    ...policing in Southern slave states has some roots in slave patrols.

    But policing doesn’t.

    Policing—enforcing the law, preventing crime, apprehending criminals—has a very long tradition of existence. I don’t know where it started, but for our purposes we can note that Augustus Caesar, born in 27 B.C., created the cohortes urbanae near the end of his reign, to police Ancient Rome. Policing in England takes rudimentary form with Henry II’s proclamation of the Assize of Arms of 1181. In the 1600s England established constables and justices of the peace to oversee them. The Metropolitan Police Act created the first recognizable police force in the U.K. in 1829.

    Meanwhile, in America the first constables were created in the 1630s in what came to be known as New England. Boston has the oldest “modern” police department. It was created in 1838. New York and Philadelphia soon followed....

    She doesn't care. She is a liar. Facts don't matter to her. To say that she won't call the cops when facing a real danger because she fears the cop MAY be a danger, makes absolutely no sense at all. She was lying and the entire world can see her lie.

    Such is critical theory. "The professor is definitely lacking the level of maturity and impartiality that should be expected from a college professor" is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

    But certainly she could have come up with a better response, than her response that she would rather be exposed to known harm, so she could avoid possible harm.
