VIDEO: Professor Gets Hostile After Student Says Police are ‘Heroes’

Videos by OutKick

Braden Ellis, a student attending Cypress College, dared to break one of the most consequential unwritten rules imaginable. While delivering a presentation during a communications course held remotely, Ellis did the unthinkable: he called police “heroes,” in a college setting. 

Ellis’ project focused on how cancel culture is “destructive and tearing our country apart.” Ellis provided a series of examples, such as when activists called for the cartoon Paw Patrol to be canceled amid last summer’s BLM riots. Once his presentation concluded and the 10-minute Q-and-A began, the session became hostile. Ellis was soon interrupted by his professor, who took issue with Ellis presenting the police force as something other than systematically racist.

Perhaps, the professor didn’t try to hide it but her disdain for police is evident:

Take a look at some of these quotes.

Once Ellis said “I think cops are heroes and they have to have a difficult job,” this professor jumped at him, bitterly asking, “All of them?”

Ellis shouldn’t have to answer that, the answer to any question that begins with “all of them” is an obvious no. He did anyway, knowing his grade was on the line.

“I’d say a good majority of them. You have bad people in every business.” Ellis appeared to have more to say but was cut off after the word “business,” so the professor could shout the following:

“A lot of police officers have committed atrocious crimes and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted of any of it.”

Aside from how concerning it is to see a professor preach this as opposed to providing examples and letting the students decide, it was far from the most concerning part of the discussion.

Once the professor finally took a break from calling all police racist criminals, the student asked the only logical question left to be asked: “Who do we call when we’re in trouble and someone has a knife or a gun?”

Good question, wait until you see her response.

In clear anger, this unnamed professor said, “I wouldn’t call the police.”

Really? She wouldn’t?

“I don’t trust them,” the professor goes on “My life’s in more danger in their presence.”

Hmm, got that? If someone breaks into her home with a knife and gun, the police are more likely to come and harm her than help. Bold statement.

Ellis then asked if she would have a firearm to defend herself, she replied, “No,” then abruptly ended the discussion. That’s how it ended. She had nothing more to say. It was time to grade the presentation. 

Let that sit for a bit. That’s who is teaching students. A woman who is convinced beyond reason that police are dangerously racist, should not be called when someone is about to be shot, and will not allow her students to think otherwise.

As I told Tucker Carlson last week, colleges teach students how to accept what they are told, to not question, to never dare think independently. I can’t think of anything more troubling. This professor is far from the only enforcer.

I’m curious to see the grade Ellis received for breaking this unwritten rule.

  1. The tragic thing is that, like Shapiro said, MORE police officers in areas with a lot of crime would drastically help said areas. Instead, they are looking to do the exact opposite and, go figure, it’s having the opposite effect.

  2. Take note everyone: what is called ‘racist’ by Marxist professors, leftists, media and race grifters is actually people wanting to follow law and order, authority, hierarchy, normal sexuality, family structure, and civilization. They’ve hijacked that word, completely disregarded the definition of it and changed it in order to implement chaos and societal collapse.

    But I guarentee you the looney leftist would call the police if the chaos got to close to their home. It’s why they are hypocrites.

  3. Wow – this is wild! The professor showed her lack of intelligence and failed to let a civil discussion played out that could have been very constructive. She behaved like a child while the student intelligently and respectfully answer the questions.

    • This woman is a professor?!?! God help us with rotten viewpoints like hers. She is seriously a child. Police or forces of law and order have been around for centuries and centuries all across the world. She needs someone to teach her truth and reality before she ever teaches another class. Good for that student! Bravo sir

  4. What’s the name of the professor? Can someone track her name and position down? Think she needs folks to respectfully write to her and educate her on how her view (and teaching style) is so counterproductive to the civil discourse we should be having about these issues.

  5. The thing is, she is a liar. If someone broke into her house tonight, she would dial 911 faster than she could even imagine. And she would be utterly relieved once the police arrived and would thank them profusely. The hypocrisy is through the roof. She is real, true evil personified.

  6. The sad thing is that many students lack the skill or heart to take head-on a professor and would just concede her point as to not be argumentative. You can tell she has bullied the hell out of people who disagree with her and probably surrounds herself with beta cuck types like the fat curly haired limp wrister who defended her.

  7. Normally I would praise this academic for courageously willing to go it alone in the face of a (hypothetical) violent situation. But in this instance, I feel that the following response is more appropriate:

    “Go sell crazy someplace else, we’re all stocked up here”.

  8. the headline should be: ‘idiot millennial looking’ professor (cuz she looks like a millennial and has that kind of body language) yells at people who disagree because she hates cops and the first amendment and is quite frankly not capable of debate

  9. Worst part was actually the person at the end saying “I support your right to say that……to some extent.” Had no idea the first amendment had extents . What an absolute joke that these buffoons are really paid to educate people.

  10. She must be trying to get tenured, this is the way of the self anointed.
    Bobby- do an article on how state universities diversity and inclusion departments have grown 300-400%, why I stopped contributing to mine.

  11. What do you know are care about slavery bringing up my ancestors to divide this country you being a new American just got over to America you know nothing about the history of my people. You should be thanking America for letting you be here. You care nothing about black people
