Officer in full uniform escorted out of college class where he is a student, for having a gun



Darton State College in Georgia is apologizing today after one of their professors had a police officer, who is a student there, kicked out of the classroom for having a gun. The officer was in full uniform.

The teacher was uncomfortable with having a gun in the classroom and asked that the officer be escorted out, according to Fox Carolina.

The college issued the following statement:

“Darton State College is appreciative for the service of our law enforcement, and welcome them as students on our campus. We have apologized to the officer for our misunderstanding when he attended class on our campus, and we regret this happened. We have met with the faculty and staff involved to reiterate the Georgia Law and Darton Policy.” – Dr. Thomas Ormond, Interim Provost/VP for Academic & Student Affairs, Darton State College

  1. I believe that this Liberal, I’m scared and offended by everything needs to stop. When you as a LEO cannot attend a class because you make the professor nervous, it is time that person be removed from teaching as they are what is wrong with this nation.

  2. So, why the officer can carry his gun in a class room and average citizen cannot?
    What makes those two different?
    Just please don’t start telling me about police “competency” and “professionalism”.
    I am a responsible gun owner with exceptional firearm skills and training, also with real combat experience.

  3. was he on duty taking the class, which isnt right?
    if so yes he could carry..
    if he wasnt, out of deference to what has been going on, he shouldnt have been. but, most officers look funny with the empty case on their belt, so he should carry it.
    yes, the professor shouldn’t have made him leave under escort, but maybe he ws just uncomfortable around guns..grow up, colleges are legal.

    • John it seems that your commonsense is right up there with that of the professor. “(O)ut of deference to what has been going on” I would be happy to be sitting in a room with an armed police officer as a deterrent “to what has been going on”. Does the Professor have a screening process to make sure that no one in his classroom has a knife or other weapon? It seems to me the entire incident by the professor was meant to embarrass the officer and in his perverted way to show the class who he feels the Alpha male is. What is called for is a public apology in front of the class and a article in the college newspaper denouncing the actions of the professor.

    • John, it appears that you have as much common sense as the professor. If you feel that he should not have been armed “in deference to what has been going on” you are surely mistaken. “(I)n deference to what has been going on” I would feel a lot more comfortable and safer sitting in a room with this armed police officer. It appears that this is a case of an individual asserting his right as the “Alpha male” by banning the officer because he could. The college administration should insist that the professor apologize to the officer for his actions in front of the whole class and the college president write an apology for the actions of the professor to be printed on the front page of the college newspaper.
