A California community professor beat up one of her 19-year-old college students after calling police “ heroes. ”
The student, Braden Ellis, got into heated discussion with his communications professor at Cypress College after giving a Zoom presentation on ‘cancel culture’ in the United States.
Images of their exchange, which he says came right after his presentation, show that the Professor interrupted Ellis repeatedly after defending the police.
The female professor, who was not immediately identified but is an adjunct professor, continued to insist that the police were bad.
At one point, she suggested that police were set up in the south to track runaway slaves and that it was a form of systemic racism.
“I think agents are heroes,” Ellis said at the start of the exchange.
The student, Braden Ellis, got into heated argument with his unidentified communications professor at Cypress College in California after giving a Zoom presentation on “ canceling culture ” and defending the police force.
He was immediately interrupted by the professor and said, “All of them?”
Before being cut off again, Ellis managed to argue, “I would say a good majority. You have bad people in every business’
“Yet many police officers have committed a heinous crime and got away with it and never been convicted of it,” the professor was then heard to say.
Ellis replied, “We have bad people, and the people who do bad things should be brought to justice … I agree.”
The professor then interrupted and said, ‘So what’s your main point? Are you saying that police officers should be revered, seen as heroes? Do they belong on TV shows with kids? ‘
Ellis said, “I think they are heroes in a way because they meet your need and help you.”
When the student asked his professor if she would call the police in an emergency, she claimed she would call the police because she doesn’t trust them.
“My life is more in danger in their presence … I wouldn’t call anyone,” she said.
Ellis, who is a company profile, said he did not record his exchange with the professor, but took it from her archive after feeling shocked
In an interview with Fox News, Ellis said the exchange took place after canceling his 10-minute presentation on the culture, specifically mentioning how the Nickelodeon show Paw Patrol was criticized for putting the police in a positive light.
He also noted how the Cops TV series had been cut short while A & E’s Live PD had been shut down completely.
Ellis, who is a company profile, said he did not record his conversation with the professor, but took it from her archive after feeling shocked.
The college issued a statement in the wake of the exchange, saying that any attempt to suppress freedom of speech would not be tolerated.
“Cypress College is proud to create a learning environment for students where ideas and opinions are exchanged as an essential part of the educational journey,” the statement read.
Our community fully embraces this culture; students often defend each other’s right to express themselves freely, even when opinions differ. Any attempt to suppress free and respectful speech on our campus will not be tolerated.
The adjunct professor takes time off during her assignment at Cypress College. This was her first course with Cypress and she had previously indicated that she did not want to come back in the fall.
‘We are looking at the full recording of the exchange between the deputy professor and the student and will go into it in full in the coming days.’
