Police officer (and student), in full uniform, escorted out of college class because…

The professor was uncomfortable with the presence of his firearm.

Darton State College is a four-year state college unit of the University System of Georgia, located in Albany, Georgia. Last week, a police officer, in full uniform, was attending a class in Darton State College  where he is a student. The Epoch Times has a story that will leave you scratching your head.
are you serious
The instructor apparently became uncomfortable with the police-issued gun he was carrying, WALB-TV reported on Wednesday. The teacher then kicked the officer out of the classroom. The station said that he was “escorted” out, without elaborating.
There has been major blacklash on social media against the school over the move. “I hope the professor was disciplined and had to personally apologize to the officer,” wrote one person on Facebook. Some also called for the unnamed professor’s job. “Why wasn’t this professor fired. Disgraceful,” said another.
The university issued a statement:

“Darton State College is appreciative for the service of our law enforcement, and welcome them as students on our campus. We have apologized to the officer for our misunderstanding when he attended class on our campus, and we regret this happened. We have met with the faculty and staff involved to reiterate the Georgia Law and Darton Policy.” – Dr. Thomas Ormond, Interim Provost/VP for Academic & Student Affairs, Darton State College.”

The school allows law enforcement officers to carry firearms on campus, according to the school policy, which reads: “Students are prohibited from possession of firearms in or on college property except by law enforcement officers, judges and district attorneys. The possession or use of any other offensive weapons is prohibited.” However, it’s unclear if a student, who is also a law enforcement officer is allowed to carry a firearm.
Doesn’t seem unclear to me. If an officer is in full uniform, why are you afraid to see him carrying a firearm? Unless you are a Pajama Boy, then I’d understand!

Outrageous! So who is this instructor who neither respects the U.S. Constitution nor knows the college’s policy allowing law enforcement officers to carry arms on campus? I searched websites that carry this news and Darton College’s Facebook page, including readers’ comments, but could not find the instructor’s name. Somewhere I read that the course was a Sociology course. So I went on Darton College’s page on its Social Science faculty. There are only two full-time profs who teach Sociology: 1. Jason Goodner, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology, 2. Jason Armstrong, MPA, Criminal Justice Program Coordinator (Criminal Justice is considered part… Read more »

That’s like when your spouse says,”Your gun collection makes me nervous so you’ll need to get rid of ’em. Either THEY go or I go”,you reply,”Well,I’ll help you pack…..”

One must ask; how do such stupid people get to be professors?

“One must ask; how do such stupid people get to be professors?”
When the institutions that educate these professors teach cultural Marxism instead of make real learning and actual intellectual achievement the goal.

This is a joke, I hope. That professor needs a good pistol whipping. I repeat, that is a joke. It may not be funny, but it is a joke. Anyhow, you had to be there. Then you would see that it was no laughing matter. That was not a joke.

I would bet he would speak out of the other side of his mouth if he suddenly heard there was a heavily armed shooter on campus.

Send that professor (?) to Syria so that he/she can tell those bad people in ISIS that guns make some people uncomfortable and that they have to turn them in. Or have a time out.

The tragic irony. Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.
