Police officer escorted out of Darton College classroom

WALB News – by Andrew Gorton

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – On Wednesday, a police officer was escorted from a classroom at Darton State College.

The officer is a student at the college, and was wearing his full police uniform.  

The teacher was reportedly uncomfortable with having a gun in the classroom, and asked the officer to be escorted out.

The university has issued a statement, reading:

“Darton State College is appreciative for the service of our law enforcement, and welcome them as students on our campus. We have apologized to the officer for our misunderstanding when he attended class on our campus, and we regret this happened. We have met with the faculty and staff involved to reiterate the Georgia Law and Darton Policy.” – Dr. Thomas Ormond, Interim Provost/VP for Academic & Student Affairs, Darton State College

  1. It’s not like pigs are capable of intelligence ?? I mean he either shouldn’t be a cop or shouldn’t be in college. Silly.

    1. Its possible he is at a quandry for why he chose to become a cop. going to college may help him rethink the insane notion he made when he decided to become a pig.

  2. I actually attended this college back in the late 80’s and early 90’s as a criminal justice major. At that time, it was an independent college and not a part of the U of GA system. Many officers (of my day) attended this school, as well as Albany State College (a predominantly black college and also not yet sucked into the U of GA system).

    At that point in time, the schools and the teachers/professors were much more moderate to conservative. Now – not so much.

    I, myself, have attended class in full uniform and other than a little friendly ribbing from classmates (oh, occifer friendly, occifer friendly!), there was NEVER any problem with the uniform or the firearms.

    How times have changed!!! Now, if I were still on the force, I would do everything I could NOT to wear my uniform for fear of the possible actions of the ignorant morons in these schools.

    What was the difference? Well, I studied and practiced Constitutional law. Case law was taught, but not emphasized.

    Not the greatest of times in our country, but at least the rule of law and SOME resemblance of justice prevailed. My, how times have changed so quickly.

      1. Robin, you know nothing about me or how I conducted myself as a cop. Why do you think I follow this group? Why do you think I make comments to the contrary about cops today. I know VERY few cops I would trust today and those guys came up during the same time I did.

        I DESPISE law enforcement today. I left the force a long time ago, in part because I saw where law enforcement was going and I didn’t like the mindless reactionary training cops go through today.

        So, you’re welcome and free to say what ever you like about me, but again, you know nothing about me, what I stand for or why I am where I am today.

        Take care and be prepared, Robin.
