City Police Remove Protesters, Make Arrests At Johns Hopkins

RadioOnFire.com – Johns Hopkins officials and Baltimore police broke up a month-long sit-in Wednesday that began in protest of the university’s establishment of a police force and its cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Baltimore City police arrested five protesters for trespassing at Garland Hall on the campus of Johns Hopkins. Two additional individuals were arrested outside for impeding vehicular traffic, police say. None will ultimately be prosecuted.

“Our office will not prosecute the seven Johns Hopkins students arrested during yesterday’s protest,” Melba Saunders, a spokeswoman for State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, said in a statement. Today all charges brought against the students will be abated by arrest.“

Hopkins officials said that Baltimore police and fire personnel worked with the university to reopen Garland Hall at 4:51 a.m. Wednesday. Student protesters and outside activists had staged a sit-in there since April 1.

University officials say on May 1, the protesters “forced the evacuation of university employees and students from Garland Hall, and chained shut all exterior doors in violation of Baltimore City fire code.”
