IVC coppers procure 15 self-protection clubs. For what? Against whom?


     We've been noting the curious items (see list) that colleges across the country have procured from the military in recent years, including an armored vehicle that protects against IEDs and mines. —That's what our sister college (campus police) snagged, and boy are they proud.
     That's ridiculous. It's so ridiculous that many may have failed to notice that IVC's police did some procuring of their own. The IVC coppers snagged, among other things, 15 self-protection clubs.
     Huh? Just who do they need protection from? Students?
     And why 15? Are they expecting high concentrations of wacked-out, violent studentry? Do they know something that we don't?
