NYPD Allowed Access to BC Bathrooms

By Zainab Iqbal

Published: November 15th, 2017

The New York Police Department (NYPD) has permission from Brooklyn College to use the bathrooms on campus, according to Director of Public Safety Donald Wenz.

Though all of the comfort stations are accessible to the NYPD on campus, Wenz said the college prefers for the cops to use the ones in the West End Building (WEB), “rather than walking across either quad to use the bathroom,” he told The Excelsior.

At the “Watched” film screening on campus two weeks ago, students were able to talk and share their concerns about feeling safe on campus. “Watched” is a documentary about an NYPD informant surveilling Muslim students on campus for four years. One student shared that he believes the NYPD should not be allowed to be on campus, regardless of whether or not it’s just to use the bathroom.

“I disagree with them being on campus,” the student said. “Especially allowing them to use the building where student groups are held.”

The student also said he was in the midst of drafting a petition to BC President Michelle Anderson, urging her to make a statement, “that we do not want the NYPD on campus in any respect even if it’s just to take breaks and use bathroom,” he said.

The Excelsior reached out to the student for comment, but did not receive a response in time for print.

  1. You call yourselves “educated” college students? I don’t think so.
    How stupid can you be? With all these mass shootings, rapists and muggers running around, and let’s not forget terrorist attacks going on, you’d think police presence would be welcomed on your campus.
    Also, for all you students that are here (from other countries), getting a FREE education …. Go back home if you don’t want our FREE protection!
    DON’T DIAL 911 when something goes horribly wrong.

  2. Fuck you, you liberal snowflake!

    The NYPD has every right to be on the campus as it is city property. If you think the NYPD discriminates, go look in a mirror.

    Good luck trying to get the powers that be to actually piss off the NYPD.

  3. How very Orwellian of you. “NYPD allowed access to BC Bathrooms”

    I guess in the segregated South, pre Civil Right Act, the headline should’ve read

    “Special water fountains and toilets set aside just for Black people”

  4. When you get a shooter on campus, you’ll be begging for NYPD

  5. Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson & Students’ :

    Your actions and behavior is not that of educated intellectuals’, you are behaving like spoiled rotten brats ! For this College to actually give in to your demands suggests Brooklyn College is being run by the students’ and not by the adults’ in charge. What the blazes are you people doing ? This is insane, the world is a dangerous place today, if a shooter appears on campus, all of you would be calling Law Enforcement for help, if a female is raped, there is a student suicide, you will call Law Enforcement, if there happens to be illegal drug use on campus, assault and battery, theft, murder, excetra, Law Enforcement will be called. When it happens refrain from picking up the phone and reporting one blasted crime or incident, handle it yourselves ! Ungrateful ingrates don’t deserve the protection of the good men and women who serve your campus and city !!! This is sheer insanity, if these Snowflakes are so intimidated by Police then they are either breaking the law or not as grown up and educated as they think they are ! I would dearly LOVE & it would be music to my ears, to hear Police were called by Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson or Staff for help and Police refused to respond ! That is what these ingrates would deserve and what should happen, to Brooklyn College or any other College who stoops to these insane methods of leadership & educational instruction ! Caving into the demands of students who are there for an education, who are NOT there to take over the running of a College or make nonsensical demands of the President of a College is utterly ridiculous and in and of itself insane. Tjere should be cconseqences, Law Enforcement should refuse to serve and protect Brooklyn College if these demands are met. Now go to your “Safe Spaces”, grab your blankey, your pacifier and crawl into a corner !!!

  6. I hope the NYPD stops responding to or working to prevent crime and terrorism on the Brooklyn College campus.

    I for one will look closely at anyone with a degree from BC and if they refuse to publicly disown this stupidity, I would never hire or work with them.

    NEVER.
