WATCH: Professor Berates Student For Calling Police ‘Heroes’
Quote:A professor at Cypress College in Southern California berated a student during a Zoom class for calling the police “heroes.”

During a communications class, Braden Ellis gave a presentation about “cancel culture” and why it is “so destructive and tearing our country apart.”

Ellis told The Daily Wire that during his speech, he mentioned how activists attempted to “cancel” the children’s show “Paw Patrol” in light of the anti-police sentiment stemming from the Black Lives Matter movement. Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, professors, activists, and journalists alike took to social media to decry why “Paw Patrol” was bad for reinforcing the idea that police are helpful.

Ellis claims that his professor allotted a 10-minute question and answer session for students to respond to the presentation. The professor took the designated time to scold Ellis for his views.

Watch:





Professor: So you brought up the police in your speech a few times. So, what is your main concern? Since, I mean, honestly … the issue is systemic. Because the whole reason we have police departments in the first place, where does it stem from? What’s our history? Going back to what [another classmate] was talking about, what does it stem from? It stems from people in the south wanting to capture runaway slaves.

Classmate: Maybe they shouldn’t be heroes. Maybe they don’t belong on a kid’s show.

Ellis: I disagree with what [my classmate] said … I think cops are heroes and they have to have a difficult job. But we have to —

Professor: All of them?

Ellis: I’d say a good majority of them. You have bad people in every business and every —

Professor: A lot of police officers have committed atrocious crimes and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted of any of it. And I say [it] as a person that has family members who are police officers.

Ellis: Yes, I understand. This is what I believe … This is not popular to say, but I do support our police. And we have bad people, and the people that do bad things should be brought to justice, I agree with that.

Professor: They haven’t.

Ellis: Well, I agree with you on that point [of] they should.

Professor: So, what is your bottom line point? You’re saying police officers should be revered? Viewed as heroes? They belong on TV shows [for] children?

Ellis: I think they are heroes in a sense because they come to your need and they come and help you. They have problems just like every other business, but we should fix that —

Professor: It’s not a business. I think that’s the problem, is looking at it as a business. Because they’re actually supposed to protect and serve the people.

Ellis: They do protect us. Who do we call when we’re in trouble and someone has a knife or a gun?

Professor: I wouldn’t call the police.

Ellis: Why wouldn’t you call the police?

Professor: I don’t trust them. My life’s in more danger in their [presence].

Ellis: Professor, who would you call?

Professor: I wouldn’t call anybody.

Ellis: If [someone] intruded your house with a gun…would you have a gun on you? Who would you call?



Ellis: I know that it’s not popular for me to say that to you guys and people in here, but that’s what I believe about the police.

Teacher: Okay. Thank you. I appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Ellis told The Daily Wire that he was shocked to hear his teacher’s thoughts on policing in America.

“I was shocked to hear her comments about police, but I stood firm in my beliefs,” Ellis said. “We need to fight back against this liberal ideology spreading in our colleges and save America.”

Cypress College did not respond to requests for comment in time for publication.

The student was acting more like the teacher than the teacher was.

I don't have the guts to watch it, but I read the transcript. She's not alone in those thoughts, unfortunately.

We have a tendency of taking issues and using a broad brush instead of using common sense and logic to address the roots of problems. This woman's opinion is a prime example. Instead of conceding that the VAST majority of public encounters with the police end up positive or without incident?...She chooses to take the few examples of misconduct and paint ALL police as corrupt.
It's dishonest and quite disturbing to hear from someone that is teaching...ANYTHING.

. edu needs to be purged of Marxists of all stripes, but particularly ethnomarxists and Maoists.

Why is this miserable failure of an “adjunct”professor at “Cypress College” allowed to remain anonymous?

She has drank so much progressive liberal kool aid that her brain has been washed dull. I’m positive she also believes in gun control. All we need is her address because she is a bullseye for a criminal. Won’t call the police so let rape burning and pillaging begin.

I’m told there is only a hair thickness difference between a genius and an idiot. She falls in the latter category

This AOC look alike / think alike / never did an honest day's research in her life and if you sat in on grad classes at a liberal university you would find that A's are handed out for the regurgitation of the their professor's ideas and both the professors and regurgitating students are as intellectually lazy and impotent as they come. But when the politics of the Department heads and deans line up they all skate and those who actually try to think are punished for it. That's why these people get out of Doctoral programs with an inability to speak, spell, use proper grammar, or do research. And remember thinking and logic are the tools of the white oppressors. Our future looks very very bleak when idiots are promoted to positions of authority on doctrine.

Odd. The first police department in the United States was established in Boston, MA in 1838. The seoncd was in New York City in 1844. The third was in Philly in 1854.

Facts are pesky.

The Cypress College professor has been put on leave and won't be brought back in the fall. The college president actually said free speech will be protected not berated at the school. The college is located in Orange county California, a somewhat conservative part of the Los Angeles area.

This reminds me of the issue several years ago where liberals got mad when people conflated jihadists/radical Muslims with Islam. The argument they made was you can’t besmirch an entire religion on the acts of 15% of the people.

These same people are now declaring an entire profession to be immoral, bad, violent, etc based on acts of a much smaller percentage of the police force.

I'd say getting up and putting on a badge every day knowing that it could be your last on this Earth is pretty heroic.
