Footage leaked on social media this week showing a California student defending police “heroes” from his own professor who argues all police departments stem from “southern wanting to capture runaway slaves.”
“You brought up the police. What is your main concern?” asked the educator. “The issue is systemic. The whole reason we have police departments in the first place. What does it stem from? It comes from people in the south wanting to capture runaway slaves.”
“I think cops are heroes. They have a difficult job,” fired-back the student. “I do support our police.”
“You’re saying police should be revered?” pressed the professor.
Watch the fiery exchange above.
