NYPD Arrests 300 Professional Protesters And Students At Columbia

NYPD arrests 300 professional protesters and students at Columbia University after a violent takeover of the institution. The protest is reportedly about the Israel-Palestine conflict. People barricaded themselves in several buildings on campus with heavy-duty chains. They also used chairs, vending machines, and several other heavy objects. NYPD was forced to use a heavy “BearCat” vehicle to infiltrate the college through windows and high doors. New York City Mayor Eric Adams says there is evidence that many individuals involved are outside agitators with an agenda beyond students expressing their freedom of speech.
