Campus Cop Blocks Students From Promoting Conservative Group

A campus police officer actively blocked students on a public university campus from speaking to their peers about a new conservative student organization last month. In videos obtained exclusively by Campus Reform, a University of Texas at Dallas campus police officer told multiple students to keep walking and blocked students from talking to two female UT-Dallas students who were promoting a new, school-recognized conservative club they started on campus—a Network of Enlightened Women (NeW) chapter—while also advocating for gun rights on campus. “You, listen to what I’m saying,” Officer Tad Palmer said. “You have to get permission. Either get permission or you can be criminally trespassed.” The students told that officer that they had been approached by other campus safety officials who told the students they were within their rights to sign up students to join their club. They did not have a table and chairs—only signs. “Anytime we have anyone soliciting for whatever it is—political in nature or personal—whatever it is a lot of people tend to start calling in, and it’s not that you’re doing anything wrong, it’s just that there’s a process you have to go through,” Palmer said. “I’m not saying you can’t do this, but you have to follow our process, does that make sense?”
