A University of California professor has been reprimanded for his comments saying cops "need to be killed".
Professor Joshua Glover, who teaches critical and political theory, had posted several anti-law enforcement tweets that call for the death of police officers.
"I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age."
“I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?”
Addressing the issue in a statement, UC spokesperson Andy Fell says:
“The UC Davis administration condemns the statement of Professor Clover to which you refer. It does not reflect our institutional values, and we find it unconscionable that anyone would condone much less appear to advocate murder.”
The university did not disclose details of Clover's punishment.
