A student was handing out fliers on Thursday at the UMB campus to promote a moment of silence in memory of Dr. King's murder. The student was wearing a shirt which said "Military recruiters off my campus!" on the back and on the front, "Education not enlistment". The police were called by the recruiters as a reaction to the shirt. A professor, Tony Menelik Van Der Meer, stuck up for Tony Naro after being told by a recruiter that since he was organizing for King he also should be shot in the head. A verbal battle ensued. The recruiter was left alone by police while the professor was arrested and roughed up.
