The vandals spray painted the UC police and fire departments, as well as the sidewalk. Protestors also set off smoke bombs and displayed a giant wooden pig that said, "we will outlive policing."

“Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” says Pummill, “and under the First Amendment, these students are allowed to speak freely in protest. However, what they are not allowed to do is to vandalize university property.”

Also on this week’s episode, Campus Reform correspondent Blakeley Fiedler joins to discuss universities now requiring the COVID booster to return to campus in the spring, and Pummill discusses a poll that shows Democrat students are unwilling to date, be friends with, or even work for people who voted Conservative in the 2020 presidential election.
