How stupid are universities?

This fucking stupid:
"The current interpretation of the non-weapon policy in NDSU...understands our fencing equipment as weapons," says the club's coach Enrique Alvarez.
Nonetheless, NDSU's Police and Safety Office Director Ray Boyer cited the school's policy manual and Code of Student Behavior, saying sabers and swords are prohibited on campus:
"They are deemed weapons, and as such, possession or use on University owned or controlled property is prohibited," he says.
Boyer, you are a fucking moron.  Playing the "I'll blindly follow so I'm not responsible for anything" playbook.  You're a useless, brainless fool.

Any bets that they don't have ROTC?
Oh and somebody ought to tell them that hockey sticks can be considered weapons as well (along with baseball bats and golf clubs)

Whatta bunch of maroons........(sorry Bugs, had to do it)

Someone should start a campaign of students sending emails to campus police complaining about various objects and how they felt threatened by them, and demanding that they be banned. Start with the hockey sticks and baseball bats, and slowly work up to truly silly stuff like sharpened pencils. Do it slowly (to boil the frog) and see how far they will go. Should be good for laughs.

I fully support stupid schools having their own stupid rules rubbed in their faces with draconian enforcement. With enough enforcement of all their rules, none of the campus staff would be permitted on campus.

Maybe the campus police don't have a specific exemption for their weapons either.
