The police chief at City College of San Francisco has resigned after failing to persuade the school to let his officers carry firearms. Story here.
Coordinated letter-writing campaigns have periodically urged administrators to change the policy, but students, faculty members and staffers overwhelmingly favor keeping the campus gun-free, the chancellor said.
It's intended as an expression of an ideal rather than a description of factual reality.
I would imagine nearly all campuses need some sort of independent police force--for traffic, public safety and minor crimes and disputes--but does that always mean the police force has to be armed?
Otherwise they should hire security guards
Again i can understand why you guys would want to carry guns, but when i see Local Police can handle the task just let them.
But a lot of it seems to be off campus on the "other" campus, while the main campus on Ocean seems to be pretty quiet.
They should just call it a "crime-free zone" and do away with the police entirely.
Policy should be based on likely events, not things that have the same odds of happening as winning the state lottery.
