This morning police arrested students who occupied and then locked down Hopkins' main administration building because they objected to the creation of a university police force to deter crime on and near the campus in this crime-ridden city.
The university's president described the students' criminal activities as a "forcible occupation" and a violation of criminal law, but offered amnesty to those who left the building before arrests were made.
Banzhaf says that higher education may finally be getting smart, and doing what it should have begun doing a long time ago to deter the illegal conduct by a tiny number of students which infringes on the free speech and other rights of students and faculty.

At Loyola, students who deliberately blocked an entrance were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Recently, the University of Arizona said that it planned to charge two students with creating a disturbance to protest the presence of Border Patrol agents on campus. Its president accused the students of infringing on "free speech" rights.
However, because the threat of arrests and often token fines too often does not deter students from engaging in criminal conduct to pressure universities to agree to their demands, Banzhaf has also suggested that victims consider civil actions for damages against the criminals, especially those who organize their actions.
He notes that leaders of illegal demonstrations can now be sued for damages, pointing out that a federal appeals court has ruled that a Black Lives Matter organizer who led his followers to block a highway as part of an illegal protest can be sued by persons injured as a result; a decision likely to prompt civil law suits against others who help organize illegal demonstrations.

Banzhaf recently wrote that "this decision could open the door for people who suffer as a result of illegal demonstrations - including blockages of streets or bridges, sit ins or other occupations of buildings or businesses, etc. - to sue the leaders, often easily identified through social media, even if they cannot sue the individual protesters who caused the harm or the organization behind it."
