The University of Nevada, Reno recently sent out a campus-wide message to apologize for an off-duty campus police officer who dressed up as Colin Kaepernick for Halloween.
The school’s Assistant Vice President and Director of University Police Services Adam Garcia penned the missive, saying his officer was “mocking another who has taken advantage of his constitutional right to protest,” according to a copy of the email obtained by Campus Reform.
“Police officers are held to a higher standard and denigrating another—on or off duty—is insensitive for its lack of respect and understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted,” Garcia wrote.
Or maybe he just thought it would make a good costume? Or, maybe, maybe he actually was exercising his right to peacefully protest? Either way, the officer was OFF DUTY when this happened, so what Assistant Vice President and Director of University Police Services Adam Garcia is doing is protest shaming isn’t it? Oh, wait, I forgot, that is a one way street these days
He then went on to note that students have been concerned about their safety in the “current social and political climate,” and that “behavior such as this magnifies unsafe feelings and lack of trust in police, especially when the individual is responsible for the safety of all members of the university, regardless or [sic] color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion.”
If Garcia is arguing that college students are in fear of a costume then he ought to be suggesting they get some counseling, or meds, or maybe they should simply grow up? Oh of course not, Garcia is in deep apology mode here. Get a load of this. you might want to grab a vomit bag first
“At a time when officers should be heightened in their attentiveness to perception by our community, this act seems extremely out of touch with those sentiments and not is not within the spirit of the department’s community oriented policing philosophy,” he added.
Of Adam Garcia, you cowardly fool. Do you actually expect to win something by placating these bullies? And yes, the Snowflakes, cowering in their safe spaces are nothing if not bullies.Everything these miscreants do is designed to intimidate, shame, and coerce everyone to behave as the Snowflakes demand
And anyone with a shred of common sense realizes that all you are doing is encouraging more bullying.
