When one of her students said he thought cops were heroes, a California college professor became furious, and the conversation is fascinating.
Braden Ellis was in a Cypress College zoom lecture with his professor.
Ellis told the class that he thought the majority of cops were decent people, but that there were some bad cops who needed to be punished. When cops cross the line, the professor responded that there is little or no transparency and the statistics back her up.
Ellis didn’t agree, but he remained firm in his belief that most cops joined the force to protect and serve, and therefore earned hero status.
He is 19 years old.
Student Calls Police ‘Heroes’ And Professor Flips Out Full Details
Rather than engaging in civil discussion, the instructor went on the offensive. She declared, “A lot of police officers have committed an atrocious crime and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted of any of it,”
The student calmly responded, “We have bad people, and the people that do bad things should be brought to justice,”
“I agree with that.”
Ellis answered, “I think they are heroes, in a sense, because they come to your need and help you.”
When Ellis asked the professor flat out if she would call the cops if she were in trouble, she flatly refused. She suddenly ended the conversation before she could be questioned further, “I don’t trust them. My life is in more danger in their presence,”
The Post reached out to Ellis for comment, but he did not respond right away. The college, which is located outside of Anaheim, issued a statement stating that the professor will not be returning.
@CypressCollege I saw the video of what this so-called instructor did to Braden Ellis. It made me angry enough to look you up. If this is the type of intimidation tactics that pose as education at your school, God help your students, our youth, and America’s future. pic.twitter.com/eW6SgqpD9v
The school said in a statement, “The adjunct professor will be taking a leave of absence for the duration of her assignment at Cypress College. This was her first course at Cypress and she had previously indicated her intention to not return in the fall,”
