“It’s a real sticky situation and obviously the sexual assault is wrong but I think even when you cut police there’s always going to be crime, crime is always going to be there no matter what you do so cutting police might have hurt it but I think a presence might have stopped some of it." Derrit Scarcer, Junior, Business Administration

“They are extremely disturbing. I don’t think there’s that much of a correlation between the police cuts and these acts because these things have been going on for years. I think they can do better in trying to prevent these kind of things from happening especially on college campuses because they are really prevalent.” Harriet Salvador-Smith, Biology, Sophomore
