The College Fix reports that a private university recently fired nine campus police officers for allegedly sharing “offensive” memes in private group messages.
The school and the campus police department have refused to comment further on this matter.
The school in question, Hampton University located in Hampton, Virginia, fired the officers late in June. The officers remain unnamed.
A letter of termination, which Deputy Chief Ronald Davis signed, was shared by a local news station WAVY, revealed that the officers were engaged in “the third annual ‘Meme Wars’”. This event was described as “a jovial release of photographs and captions designed to levy insults at others in the group as well as persons outside the group.”
In the letter, Davis declared that the memes were “egregious and extremely inappropriate to be shared in the workplace.” However, in its report of the incident, WAVY stated that a number of the officers “disputed that the messages were on social media, and said they were shared only through direct texts or group texts.”
According to the termination letter, the memes were shared in a “group”, though it was unclear if the group was public or private. The school eventually responded to The Fix’s inquiry in an email stating that “After a full investigation, it was determined that the officers shared misogynistic, racist and other offensive remarks via social media. The university has a zero tolerance for such behavior.”
The statement still did not address if the group was public or private.
All students, faculty, and staff must abide by Hampton University’s Code of Conduct. It highlights that using “vile, obscene or abusive language or exhibit lewd behavior, is in direct violation of the Hampton University Code, on or off campus.”
Section eight of the university’s Code of Conduct states: “Each member of the Hampton Family is expected to use technology in a responsible and respectful manner. Individuals should utilize their best judgment before posting content and should specifically refrain from cyber bullying.”
Hampton was founded in 1868 and is one of the top black universities in the nation.
This demonstrates that no group is safe from political correctness culture. Including supposedly “protected” groups such as African Americans.
Universities, both public and private, are seeing free expression stifled both institutionally and culturally.
This is another sign of an increasingly sensitive culture that can no longer take jokes nor talk about things that make people uncomfortable.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
