Teacher Demands Student Leave Classroom For Wearing This, Now The University Is Responding

A sergeant in the Sheriff’s department who is a part-time student at New Orleans’ Loyola University didn’t have time to change out of his uniform before class a few weeks ago. The officer described what happened as discrimination in his Facebook post, while the university said it was just a misunderstanding that got blown out of proportion.

It seems another student in the class reportedly told the professor in the “law and morality” class he was “uncomfortable” having an armed police officer in the classroom, according to the post of the officer, Josh Collins.

Collins describes what happened next in a Facebook post that has been shared thousands of times.

“My professor then called the police. Of course, I was not privileged to either of these conversations as they took place behind my back,” Collins wrote. “My professor then pulled me out of class and told me that he had called the police based on the student complaint. The police obviously never came and told him over the phone that I was perfectly within the law.”

Collins continued, slamming his fellow students for their attitude:

“First of all, what type of over sensitive indoctrinated liberal flower petals has this generation created that they are scared of going to school with a uniformed police officer.”

Laura Kurzu, the vice president of marketing and communications at Loyola University, explained that several school officials reached out to Officer Collins in the “most sincere way possible” to apologize for the incident.

Kurzu says the professor in the class acted on the student's complaint about the armed officer out of an abundance of caution, not because of anti-police sentiment on campus. She pointed out the professor called campus police to confirm school policy and then asked Collins to confirm he was a police officer during a class break, which he did. The class continued after the break with Collins remaining in in attendance. Kurzu also emphasized that Collins was not requested to leave class by the professor.
