A uniformed, armed police officer taking a class at Darton State College in Albany, Georgia was asked to leave the classroom by the professor due to the officer's weapon making the teacher feel "uncomfortable," Fox News reported.
The school has since issued an apology. The statement by Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Thomas Ormand read, in part, "We have apologized to the officer for our misunderstanding when he attended class on our campus, and we regret this happened. We have met with the faculty and staff involved to reiterate the Georgia Law and Darton Policy."
Although recent school shootings have left some people unnerved, it should be said that asking a uniformed police officer to leave a classroom goes far beyond what could be considered reasonable.
