Reevaluate Law Enforcement Response to Peaceful Student Protests

To: Sen. Casey, Sen. Fetterman, Rep. Dean

From: A verified voter in Barto, PA

April 25

The response to peaceful student protests on campuses nationwide, including USC and UT Austin, has raised concerns about the proportionality of law enforcement actions. Despite students' commitment to safety rules, over 80 arrests have been made. This response appears excessive, particularly given the peaceful nature of the protests. It is imperative to review and revise our approach to managing peaceful protests, ensuring the right to free speech is upheld. Legislation should be considered to prevent disproportionate law enforcement responses, ensuring universities remain safe spaces for open dialogue. This is a critical step in affirming our commitment to democratic values.
