For what it is worth, I have always fully supported the Johns Hopkins police force initiative due to the crime rate in Baltimore and the desire to protect the students and employees (“Senate advances Hopkins police bill,” March 14). Considering the fact that public colleges can have their own police force, including Coppin State University, Morgan State University and the University of Baltimore, why shouldn’t Hopkins have one?
As far as the students go, my advice to them is if you don’t like it then go to another school but make sure it is not a public school as they will probably have their own “police force.” What part of “they are doing it to protect you” don’t students understand? These are the same people who would be the first to complain if attacked, robbed or mugged. They would scream, “Why didn’t they protect us?”
Get over it, children. It is for your own benefit.
