    Berklee College of Music is located on Massachusetts Avenue, in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. During the protests for George Floyd, Boston police officers were posted near the school and were allowed to use the school’s bathrooms.

    Now the school is apologizing for this.

    Greg Norman reports at FOX News:

    College in Boston apologizes for letting police officers use its bathrooms

    Boston’s Berklee College of Music is now apologizing for “perpetuating feelings of oppression, silencing, and marginalization” by allowing the city’s police officers to use its bathrooms.

    The school’s public safety department, in a Facebook post, said Boston Police have been staging officers near the institution since a May 31 demonstration in memory of George Floyd. This past Sunday, officials let the cops use the Berklee Performance Center’s restrooms after an informal decision was “made on the spot.”

    “We have heard from many of you personally and across social channels of your hurt and anger that this access was permitted, especially as the facility is not currently open for students and members of our community,” the statement read. “Allowing police officers into the space was in no way meant to undermine Berklee’s support for Black Lives Matter.

    “We understand that many members of our community feel betrayed. We are deeply sorry for the impact this had on our community and for perpetuating feelings of oppression, silencing, and marginalization,” it continued. “We will make a more concerted effort to consider the effects of our actions.

    Here is the full statement the school put on Facebook:

    The comments from Facebook users overwhelmingly support the Boston Police Department and denounce the school for bowing to the mob.

    People are talking about this on Twitter as well:

    You would think that a school which houses millions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art audio equipment would be more appreciative of local law enforcement.

    Burn the place down.

    Could we please cut off all federal assistance to these morons? Colleges can trash normal Americans all they want, but they should not be allowed to do it while benefitting from student loans and federal grants and all. You want to go to this shithole, do it on your own dime. Also, strip them of their tax-exemption and tax them like any other business.

    From now on, anyone passing Berkley School of Music: urinate on it.

    Select BPD staff should make a trip to Berkley and leave a mass protest in the form of multiple BMs on the front step of the main building. Their excuse? They told us we couldn’t use the restrooms, so…
