Cypress College professor on leave following viral video of heated exchange with student

A Cypress College professor is on leave after a Zoom video of a heated discussion with a student who called police “heroes” in class went viral recently.

The incident took place during a recorded online session and began after student Braden Ellis gave a presentation on cancel culture and police for a class on verbal communications. In the discussion that followed, the professor interrupted him multiple times, not agreeing with his support of law enforcement, according to the video.

A nearly three-minute clip of the exchange — which was widely circulated online and has since garnered national attention — begins after the presentation.

Throughout the discussion, the professor interrupts the student and presses him on various points about policing in America.

“I think cops are heroes and they have to have a difficult job,” Ellis said in the video. “But we have to have …”

At that point, the teacher interrupts, asking, “All of them?”

“I’d say a good majority of them,” he responded, noting that there are “bad people in every business.”
