VIDEO: Blue Lives Matter Display Removed by Black Lives Matter at Dartmouth College

A display at Dartmouth College honoring law enforcement officers as part of National Police Week was removed Friday and replaced with Black Lives Matter signs after just one day, members of the Dartmouth College Republicans said.

In place of the “Blue Lives Matter” tribute, which was created during National Police Week, were four fliers reading: “You cannot co-opt the movement against state violence to memorialize its perpetrators. #blacklivesmatter,” The Dartmouth Review reported.

“The next morning we got up and we saw that our display was torn apart and replaced with Black Lives Matter posters,” Dartmouth College Republicans President Michelle Knesbach told Fox News on Monday.

Disgusting. The perpetrators, when caught should be forced to do some community service, like clean the local Police Dept's HQ. And maybe, expel them from the college. Does any Police Officer tear down blm posters and signs? No. The so called "activists" are being childish and immature.

Both sides if they remove or deface others posters should be treated the same, suspension or expulsion. end of story. I would like to know if Criminal damage laws or perhaps theft could be applicable.

The BLM crowd will claim it's their First Amendment right to squelch the ability of the Dartmouth College Republicans to express themselves. Hey, wait a minute!??!

Who should BLM be more upset with other blacks for killing more black people or the number of blacks killed by police officers?
Police shot and killed 1125 people in 2015
• Blacks: 340
• Latino: 200
• Asian/Indigenous: 85
• Whites: 500

Black people killed by black people in 2015: 1491
Police Officers Killed in 2015: 78
Police Officers shot and killed in 2015: 26
Half of them killed were black

What do you expect from a bastion of progressive indoctrination?

Bet the school administration will cave in and cower to these low-life scum.

We have allowed blacks and groups to run this world into the ground. We are willing to allow blacks to write their own rules, even if the rules are wrong. If you have a wasp nest above your door and you get stung every time you come inside or go out,you are going to get a spray to kill them. How long are we going to let 3 percent of young black males commit over 50% of the most serious crimes before we stop them.
