Prof. Sees "Armed Men" On Campus, Calls 911 In Fear

In what has to be some of the most ridiculous news today, armed men on campus which was actually a ROTC unit, was doing some training when a professor decided to call the police because she feared for her life...yes, we know how that sounds.

An associate professor at the University of North Dakota called the police on two ROTC students carrying replica rifles on campus, saying the group’s practice drills are “highly inappropriate” and “irresponsible” in light of recent school shootings.In a letter Sunday to the Grand Forks Herald, Heidi Czerwiec described the panic she felt when she looked up from her office computer to see “two figures in camo with guns” outside her window.“My first thought is for my students’ and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911,” she wrote.The threat, however, was two ROTC students carrying guns on their way to a routine training exercise, Campus Reform reported.“I can barely talk — first, with fear, and then with rage when the dispatcher reports back that yes, in fact, I’ve probably just seen ROTC cadets, though they’re going to send an officer to check because no one has cleared it with them,” Ms. Czerwiec wrote.

She said a university officer called her back a few minutes later to inform her that ROTC would be doing the exercises for the next couple of weeks.“So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 911 for the next couple weeks—and I will. Every time,” Ms. Czerwiec wrote. “It’s not my job to decide whether people carrying guns at school are an actual threat. It’s my job to teach and to get home to my family.

Ignoring the obvious absurdity of this, there's a lot of things wrong with calling the police EVERY time the ROTC is out training, a big one being that what happens if a real shooter comes on campus and the police don't respond because they think it's the ROTC cadets?Let us know what you think about this in the comment section or on social media.
