One of the student newspapers at the New York public college where police are reportedly allowed “as a courtesy” to use an out-of-the-way, dilapidated bathroom, is trying to school some of the reporting outlets (including NOQ Report) as “fake news” for revealing the embarrassing anti-police sentiments of its student body.
The defense from the student news media?
The student bathrooms are in horrible condition all around campus, including:
A toilet missing its seat can be found in Boylan Hall. A bucket catching dripping water from a sink can be seen in the “New Ingersoll Extension” that was built onto the main Ingersoll building. No soap or paper towels is a problem even inside Brooklyn College’s most iconic building, the library, famous for its clock tower that is featured in the official logo for the college. The Kingsman has extensively reported on infrastructure disrepair and budgetary woes over the past two years, including articles that feature broken and dis-repaired bathrooms of both genders, only two plumbers available to fix over 100 bathrooms on campus, and, as of May 2017, a security camera system that isn’t fully functional.
So, in other words, what the hell are the cops complainin’ about?
The Excelsior newspaper, however, reports without an apparent trace of irony the unscientific poll of students (by the other newspaper) showing over one-fifth of students polled support banning police from the campus.
NOQ Report has been researching this story and will have more on the possible causes of the anti-police sentiments on this particular campus, where students’ college educations are generously supported by you, the taxpayer.
