I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I read the thread topic prior to seeing your post! Methinks yes!

Hopefully. That way they won't be out gunned on Plymouth Ave and the crime bridge.

This should answer your questions. NY State Rules and Regs re Peace Officers:

About time the UofR leveled the playing field. Take down the crime bridge - watch the crime stats plummet.

Peace officers have:

(a) The power to make warrantless arrests.

(b) The power to use physical force and deadly physical force in making an arrest or preventing an escape.

(c) The power to carry out warrantless searches whenever such searches are constitutionally permissible.

Section (b) should be posted on signs as you approach the crime bridge.

Suggestion for new signage throughout campus:

"Welcome to the University of Rochester. This is private property. Our security personnel are authorized to use deadly force by New York State Law. After you have been shot, we offer Tier 1 medical and surgical treatment for your wounds. However, there are no guarantees."

Sure hope that they teach them to shoot better than the RPD cops do.A good old double tap to center mass works wonders when needed.

This will make a big difference in overall safety to the campus and med center. Up until now, the UofR was helpless to fight back against strong arm crime, from across the bridge. This should, and I hope will, solve some of the crime problems. Before this, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. Now the fish can shoot back. And believe me, the crooks, lowlifes and thugs took advantage of that situation. It's a new day.

Memo from the UR President's office in 2011, saying no guns... but more pepper spray.

I guess the crooks can relax. Business as usual.

Hope they don't get in a gunfight on a windy day.

Wouldn't it be easier to TEAR DOWN the bridge?

That would solve a problems immediately. The University president doesn't want to look suspect on diversity issues, so that will never happen.

It was created as a "bridge to the community" - worked out well, huh? What a total disaster. Came back to bite them... hard.

Why is it that when liberal, well educated do-gooders come up with stuff like this... that it always, always results in crap. You can bank on it.

The criminals always exploit the do-gooders work -- and the pathetic part is they will repeat the same behavior. Do-gooders are more dangerous than crooks, because they're certifiably stupid.

It's official: no guns or tasers.

They will, however, be trained in how to beg for their life at gunpoint.

They are NOT going to have any guns, but I guess they will now be less scared, stronger and faster by the power of grayskull.

You, specifically, give black people no respect. I'm serious.

The voluminous crap you spew, pointing out white this and white that, followed by poor downtrodden us grows thinner by the day. You're a mugshot bully.

Hey, try this. Constructive posts about blacks doing good things in the community. Channel your psychotic aggression and overwhelming hate out, and something constructive in.

You are bitter, single minded and warped. I have no idea why, but something life changing must have transpired to cause this much hatred.

There is free therapy available if you need help (if necessary, by black practitioners that graduated from medical school and are board certified). I really believe, with intensive intervention and counseling, you are salvageable.

Becoming peace officers with no weapons is ridiculous. Why bother?
