PBA PRESIDENT PAT LYNCH SLAMS
BROOKLYN COLLEGE MANAGEMENT OVER
STUDENT EFFORT TO KEEP POLICE OFF CAMPUS

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Students seeking to ban NYC police officers from their campus are blissfully ignorant of the protections that we provide for them but the college’s management is not.  The attitude of students is almost excusable because they lack life experience.  They will learn when they get out in the real world that police officers not only protect the rights of all to voice their opinions, regardless of how ill informed or moronic they may be, but we are the ones who will risk our lives to save them when an active shooter appears on campus.  Brooklyn College’s management needs to stand up for police officers and teach students to appreciate those who risk their lives so that they can get an education.”
