This has happened at HerkimerCCC too, as well as other state schools with a BSU.
Not an isolated issue. When cops show up and arrest anyone, it seems to rile them up even more. They can't follow orders or direction to disperse and leave. It's like trying to wave off flies at an outdoor picnic. Same damned flies keep landing on the same spot no matter how many times you swat at it.

This shows how far blacks have really come. They can't even act civil at an all black, black history month event. MVCC should start a degree program in pre-incarceration prep, that way these kids are ready for what their future truly holds.

Hello everyone, if i may, i would like to clarify a few things. Year's ago when MVCC held these events, they were only for MVCC students. Now, they are open to the public.

MVCC is in the phasing out of the remaining County Campus Safety Officer's and replacing them with Peace officers. As of now, three have been hired. Armed with tasers, cuffs and batons. They do have power of arrest.

The people who are in charge of the event's can request Police present for them, as well additional Security. The problem that arises is that they sell too many ticket's at times and you get way too many people trying to get in when the building only holds 250.

UPD requested backup due to the amount of fighting all at once and for the protection of the other officer's there as well. It's hard to control a mob of several hundred people running in all directions fighting as they go along.

NOW if this happened at a local bar they would want it closed down and put the owner out of business.
