Huh? Why would you do that? Wouldn’t disarming the campus police make the campus LESS safe?

A group of students at the University of California Merced is calling for the campus police force to be disarmed, declaring officers’ presence “harmful to the campus climate.”

More than 300 students in the country illegally are enrolled at the University of California Merced, and only about 13 percent of its student population is white, the rest are students of color.
