A large group of student protesters who oppose plans to create an armed, private Johns Hopkins University police force disrupted a public meeting scheduled for Thursday evening by occupying a campus auditorium stage and chanting, “No justice, No peace! No Hopkins police!” The action comes one month after University Vice President for Public Safety Branville Bard Jr. announced that the Baltimore research institution would proceed with plans to develop and implement the force. Those plans had been paused for more than two years due to a wave of early opposition.
