Police Brutality at Harvard

Cambridge police responded to reports of a naked, black student on Harvard’s campus this past weekend who was thought to be under the influence of narcotics.

The Harvard Crimson reports, “Video evidence published by the New York Times shows that four officers approached and surrounded the student. The undergraduate at one point took two steps towards an officer—and then at least one step back—but never touched any member of law enforcement. Shortly after the student stepped forward, one CPD officer standing behind the undergraduate tackled the student to the ground. While on the ground, one officer punched the student in the stomach at least five times in an ‘ineffective’ attempt to handcuff the undergraduate, according to a CPD police report.”

The incident with the black student—who was charged on multiple accounts including assault, indecent exposure and resisting arrest—has people stating that this was an instance of police brutality, causing controversy across campus.

 

African American Burial Ground Under UPenn

An African American burial ground was discovered beneath the University of Pennsylvania earlier this year and experts recently found evidence that human remains are under the university.

The Daily Pennsylvanian reports, “University spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy wrote in an emailed statement to The Daily  Pennsylvanian that the University is “currently researching the history of the site” as Penn was “unaware of its history” when it was purchased in 1986 from a car and truck dealership.”

University spokesperson Stephen McCarthy said in a statement that the university would be researching the history of the site and bringing in an outside expert to assist as well.
