Professor at UND calls 911 on ROTC with drill rifles

What a moron...This is an op-ed piece from the Grandforks Herald. The writer really needs to get a life:

http://www.grandforksherald.com/opin...sed-und-campus

Part of the letter:

LETTER: Military maneuvers startle already-stressed UND campus


Apparently, it's not enough that UND's administration is attacking the quality of education by cutting programs and experienced faculty and jacking class sizes. Now, we must also feel under physical attack as well.

I look up from my office computer to see two figures in camo with guns outside my window. My first thought is for my students' and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911. The dispatcher keeps me on the line until someone can see if ROTC is doing maneuvers.

I can barely talk—first, with fear, and then with rage when the dispatcher reports back that yes, in fact, I've probably just seen ROTC cadets, though they're going to send an officer to check because no one has cleared it with them. They thank me for reporting it.

A few minutes later, a university officer calls me back—not to reassure me, but to scold me for calling 911. He says ROTC has permission to do this exercise. When I tell him that this was news to 911 and that they encouraged me to call whenever I see a gun on campus, he seems surprised.

The campus police at UND offer a locker system where students can check in and check out their personal weapons 24/7.

UND is not tense, or even a little nervous.

They are cutting programs because the state doesn't have enough money, because the Saudis decided to go to war on fracking. Core programs are not getting cut.

Political correctness and progressive socialism are not popular at UND. Beer is popular.

I don't think this english teacher will last long at UND.

Yep,

Little Heidi must have been triggered. When was the last time that there was any kind of attack in ND? Maybe an invasion of drunk Canucknucklheads?

She needs to smoke a bowl and chillax.

UND is a good school. Or was. I can't speak for it now.

But I'm sure there's a member here who will tell us they not only founded the place, but also was forced to go back in after 60 years and fix the curriculum and single handedly reroute the Red River to avoid floods, all while inventing Col. Sander's secret recipe.

Once you receive a proper education from the Files we can be in complete harmony and good times as it was originally designed to be,,, I'll probably loose interest in the place.

I don't know if I want to move to the left, the Statist, Trump-Loving Nationalists are a little hard to take.

I'll just sit here and listen to V-guy admonish the anarchists some more.

Funny, in my classes (Intro to Linux Administration, Network Services wtih Linux) we do discuss a lot of firearms, etc.

Of course, the big issue is that most of my students think the AR-15 is the best thing since sliced bread and they have no appreciation for the FN-FAL.

This is a statement of semi-scientific fact!

Hey look...a fried chicken!
