“There have been some confrontational incidents in the last couple of hours that demonstrate that the officers expect immediate compliance with their request for ID,” Vanden Heuvel said in the email. “While we do not understand UCPD’s position on this issue, we cannot control or direct UCPD’s behavior and we are concerned for your safety and well being.”

“I don’t know if law students were familiar with UC regulations … but the police response came across as overly aggressive, upsetting our students,” said Susan Gluss, spokesperson for the school.
