Johns Hopkins students lock down administrative building, president calls for end to 'troubling' protest

Johns Hopkins students lock down administrative building, president calls for end to 'troubling' protest Johns Hopkins University president Ronald J. Daniels on Friday called for an end to a student protest over a private police force and ICE contracts, calling the group’s takeover of the campus’ main administration building “a troubling and untenable situation.” “What started as a strong expression of disagreement with university positions and policies has since been dramatically escalated by the protesters and now involves a number of serious health and safety issues,” Daniels wrote in a letter sent to students, faculty and staff. The protestors locked down Garland Hall this week, chaining the doors shut and forcing the university to close the building.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police data showed dozens of calls for service at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews just last year.

Four calls to police reported indecent exposure at the park; three of those calls were reported during the day between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. The reports came from a park that’s close to two schools.

“I think at first blush when people see something like that it gets them concerned,” said CMPD spokesman Rob Tufano.

However, police caution you to take the stats with a grain of salt. CMPD said not every call for service results in a criminal investigation. Sometimes callers are mistaken; other times they’re gone by the time an officer arrives.

When it comes to reported incidents, NBC Charlotte found Romare Bearden Park at the top of the list with 94 calls for service in 2018.

unlike many other countries, most police officers in England aren’t routinely armed. For a rich country with more than 60 million people, the UK’s mostly firearm-free police is unique. Yesterday, for instance, police confronted and shot the suspects within eight minutes of the first emergency call .

The Chicago Defender is a Chicago-based online newspaper. The Defender was founded in 1905 by Robert S. Abbott for primarily African-American readers.

  • Hornets Nest Park (43 calls)

Earlier this year, police said a jogger was attacked along a trail near Park Road Park at 11 a.m.

“It makes me nervous having a young child, I don't want to go alone,” one parent previously told NBC Charlotte.

Before that incident, another woman described how a suspect with a knife tried to sexually assault her at the entrance to the McAlpine Greenway.

“(He) grabbed me from behind and held a knife to my stomach,” she previously told NBC Charlotte. “He looked at me and said, ‘If you scream, I will kill you.’”

CMPD Crime Prevention Officer Johnathan Frisk said don’t let your guard down. He recommended bringing someone with you, staying around large crowds, and not getting too close to a stranger approaching you.

“Trying to create some sort of distance is going to be very important, you don't want to get close where someone can actually get ahold of you,” Officer Frisk said.

In all, NBC Charlotte found 80 calls for service reported violent encounters, sex crimes, or shots fired at area parks in 2018. Although according to CMPD, violent crimes account for less than one percent of the total calls to the parks.

Police said it’s even rarer to have a crime between strangers.

“Visiting a park is probably one of the safest areas you can visit in Charlotte,” Tufano said.
