TEMPE, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas) - An Arizona State University English professor is claiming self-defense against a campus police officer who slammed her to the front of a police car last month.
Dr. Ersula Ore was walking near campus when she was stopped by an officer while crossing College Avenue near Fifth Street.

“The reason I’m talking to you right now is because you are walking in the middle of the street,” Officer Stewart Ferrin said in a video recording obtained by KTVK (http://www.azfamily.com/news/local/ASU-professor-arrested-on-campus-accusing-officer-of-excessive-force-264991871.html). “Let me see your ID or you will be arrested for failing to provide ID.”
“Are you serious?” Ore asked.
“Yes, I am serious. That is the law,” Ferrin replied.
The professor stated that she was trying to cross College Avenue like several other people around her in an attempt to avoid construction, a police report explained.
“I never once saw a single solitary individual get pulled over by a cop for walking across a street on a campus, in a campus location. Everybody has been doing this because it is all obstructed. That’s the reason why,” Ore told the officer. “But you stop me in the middle of the street to pull me over and ask me, ‘Do you know what this is? This is a street.’ ”

What is lower nowadays, a college professor or a lawyer?
Try as I might I can't quite muster up a give a damn, perhaps it was too much force hmmmm, pie I want pie, I wonder if there is some of that Key lime left in the fridge.

Campus cops who do shit like this are lower than college professors and lawyers. I imagine the guy has some kind of personal issues.

You never hear of people who are polite and respectful to police officers having this problem, just the ones that mouth off.

The professor was black, according to the CBS article. Not sure what the race of the campus cop was.

Also not sure what was really going on here, but I am not surprised at a campus rent-a-cop getting out of line. Also not surprised at a black female prof getting upset about having to show ID.
