Brooklyn College is kowtowing to some students who oppose the NYPD by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus.
Amid a planned petition drive to ban officers from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight.
While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to officers, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the bathroom.”
A visit by The Post to the first-floor men’s room in the WEB — located past the school’s tennis courts and next to its athletic field — revealed a broken toilet with a hideously stained seat and an “OUT OF ORDER” sign taped to the door of its stall.
Several students told The Post they and their pals shared the sentiment, with a 21-year-old senior explaining that “people get triggered” by police officers.
“I know students from every background and across every major,” she said. “They don’t feel comfortable around cops. They just don’t. It makes safe spaces feel not so safe.”
