Greensboro News and Record: Private colleges as police states?
From the Greensboro News and Record (6/7/12): The editorial today from the News and Record's opinion scribes gets a hearty endorsement from me. I suggest you read it.
It points out the loophole in the Campus Police Act, which took effect in North Carolina in 2005. The loophole exempts certified law enforcement departments at private colleges and universities from public records requirements. The result? Private college cops may investigate crimes and arrest people without public disclosure.
In a police state, cops can arrest people without telling anyone.
