DARTMOUTH COLLEGE– The College Republicans group at Dartmouth college created a display honoring the 128 law enforcement officers that lost their lives while on duty in the past year for National Police Week. Within hours, black lives matter protesters vandalized the display and replaced it with posters reading,

“You cannot co-opt the movement against state violence to memorialize its perpetrators. #blacklivesmatter.”

The removal of the memorial has been met with outrage from both sides. The College Republicans and many others on campus see this act of vandalism as an attack on their freedom of speech. The black lives matter protesters see the display as a disrespectful to the BLM movement. One student who has admitted to removing the display is quoted as saying, “It was taken down by students and replaced because it actively co-opted a movement that is supposed to comment on police brutality against black individuals in this country,” she said. “It took that and by framing that as ‘Blue Lives Matter,’ it normalizes and naturalizes violence against people of color in this country. And that is not okay. That is in no way okay.”
