A Black Lives Matter leader and University of Houston graduate student was mugged entering his off-campus apartment complex the other day.
Now, in complete contradiction with the BLM cause, Jerry Ford Jr. is calling for the university’s police department to expand their presence and begin patrolling off-campus areas to keep students safe.
“It’s becoming a pattern. I hope they would take a bigger stance and put more security over here because you have a lot of people walking back and forth to class,” Ford told KTRK.

Ford was returning to his apartment building when he encountered a man standing outside. “The guy was standing right here just seemed like he was hanging out,” Ford said. “I told him wassup. He asked me did I have a key to get in. I told him yeah I’m about to go upstairs.”
“I reach in right here to open the door and I turn back around and he has the gun right there in my face,” Ford tells KTRK.
Ford was relieved of his wallet and phone. The suspect is a black man approximately 30-years-old.
Of course, Ford didn’t place much blame on the armed thief. “I would’ve gave him money,” he said. “I would’ve talked to him because the real crime is why is he in that position that he feels the need to come and hang out at a college campus and rob people of stuff they worked for.”
