University Cops To Get Rifles

Email Print

Local police departments are not the only ones getting militarized. The time has come for college cops to show off their shiny new toys.

Arizona’s state universities are going to arms their cops with military-style rifles, giving them “long-range shooting capabilities [and] allowing them to hit targets at the end of long hallways or atop tall buildings.”

The next logical step involves keeping armed guards at the pre-k and mobilizing an infantry division or two at the local high school, all financed by theft (don’t forget to pay your taxes!).
