What did he say?

On August 23, professor Michael Isaacson wrote on his Twitter account @VulgarEconomics: "Some of ya’ll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops."

John Jay College is a university focusing on criminal justice.

The comment made headlines this week but was magnified after Fox News host Tucker Carlson had Isaacson on his show and debated him.

According to the New York Post, John Jay College president Karol Mason said: "I am appalled that anyone associated with John Jay, with our proud history of supporting law enforcement authorities, would suggest that violence against police is ever acceptable."
