On this week’s episode of the Campus Countdown, senior correspondent Addison Pummill discusses a protest from students at one California university that included vandalism and smoke bombs.
The vandals spray painted the UC police and fire departments, as well as the sidewalk. Protestors also set off smoke bombs and displayed a giant wooden pig that said, “we will outlive policing.”
“Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” says Pummill, “and under the First Amendment, these students are allowed to speak freely in protest. However, what they are not allowed to do is to vandalize university property.”
