Here’s a quick and simple way to shut down college students who think they have the right to shut down campus operations. Just arrest them.

Clemson Swiftly Ends Students’ Building ‘Occupation’ With Trespassing Arrests

Students at Clemson University who refused to leave a campus building they had attempted to occupy experienced a surprise — and a bitter taste of the cruel, real world — Thursday evening when police arrested them.

The brief occupation began, as such occupations often do these days, with a set of seven demands — and seven grievances — posted by a student group called See the Stripes.

The occupiers’ motley list of demands includes a demand that the taxpayer-funded university “prosecute criminally predatory behaviors and defamatory speech” on social media. See the Stripes also seeks a multicultural center which will serve as “a safe space” for minority students and a new name for Tillman Hall, a campus building named after white supremacist Democrat Benjamin “Pitchfork Ben” Tillman. Additionally, See the Stripes members say they remain really mad because a fraternity threw a “Crip-mas”-themed Christmas party well over a year ago.

The protest began on Wednesday night on the steps of Sikes Hall, an administrative building which houses the office of Clemson’s president, James P. Clements. A small group of protesters slept in front of the building in tents and sleeping bags, according to local Fox affiliate WHNS.

Students who want to voice their concerns in a peaceful protest is one thing. Taking over a campus building is another.

It’s about time that colleges and universities started responding to these campus crybullies appropriately.
