The recent arrest of a UW-Madison student during class has raised questions about the priorities and accountability of campus police. While some are calling for “community control” of the UWPD, the university says such demands are unreasonable and unlawful. Darien Lamen has this report.
Hundreds at UW-Madison staged a walk-out Thursday morning to protest the arrest of a black college student during class last week. Protesters say the arrest underscores a climate of white supremacy on campus, while some faculty say they’ve received threats for supporting the student and criticizing UWPD.
