Article link about UMass-Boston prof arrested and 'treated like a run away slave' by his university PD in defense of Black Student Union handing out anti-war flyers at military recruiter office on campus. Comment about Kent State University PD fascism as similar to U-Mass. We need a database guide to corrupt universities and their corrupt PDs.

UMass-Boston professor arrested while trying to help students By Nadine Hoffman

Comment: Expose Dirty and Fascist campus systems.

We should keep a running count of the dirtiest campus PD's and university administrations. Add KSU along with U. Mass-Boston.

Kent State University PD is also implementing patriot act, et.al. law en-fascism against anti-war student and community activists. Their officer St. Ives (Uass-Boston, damn that grammar) counterpart is Chris Jenkins, a KSU Detective, though like Umass-Boston PD, the majority of the KSU PD are fascist thugs stimulating law and 'activist testing' poor citizens into 'case precedence-making' challenging charges where plea-bargains are usually made and often lives hurt for mere participatory citizenship. May 4 vigil at KSU is soon, so if you go, keep your guard up. The KSU PD is blatantly fascist, false reporting, and general will charge with the highest charge they can. If they can make a stroll a felony, they will. Recently many activists were charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor-4 +$100 and/or 1 month in jail by mailed summons, but arrests and felony charges are casually and frequently done at KSU at demos and before/after demos as prevention by repression for many recent years. Fascism is at home and accepted without challenge at KSU-Kent campus. Do not let the democrat flare of the entire campus nor the high BS plus education levels or democrat party membership of the KSU PD lull you into any sense of common ground with KSU-Kent or KSU-Kent PD.

Go there as if you're going to a US-Ca border crossing station.

If your thinking about attending KSU, boycott KSU and attend another system, but go to May 4 commemorations and anti-war demos there. The KSU administration is behind the PD fascism and uses these events to ruin academic records and careers with 'persona non gratis' emblazed on transcripts permanently held from transfer to any other university. This is somewhat common toward activist types.

They would honor Oregon state senator Minnis in mandatory 25 year jail sentences in Oregon for blocking a street on a non-permit march temporarily.

They're indefinitely 'Dems for BushMob' or whatever the police-state fascism flavor is for the elected term. 'But they are so nice' will not save you. They're tribal initiatory about repression acts. Abuse rules them and they want you to be a member by authority and/or legal scarification.

Blacken the eye of dirty university systems by reputation exposing when you can.

Most are horibble (english)

I went to UConn -- University of Connecticut -- and the administration was totally amoral, driven by the corporate dollar, and it showed in the education students received. The police were also ... how can you say it ... police. They were fascist and arrested people wrongfully and intimidated people out of having meetings or peaceful assembly... not always but enough to be a menace. I don't think it's specific to any small number of universities. I think universities in general (large ones in particular) have lost sight of their mission of educating people to be more empowered humans, and have become factories popping out obedient workers.
