Black Lives Matter activists tear down pro-police display at Dartmouth College

(FOX NEWS)- A "Blue Lives Matter" display at Dartmouth College to pay tribute to law enforcement officers was torn down on Friday and replaced with Black Lives Matter signs.

The school's College Republicans had received permission to put up the display in honor of National Police Week on a bulletin board in the school's student center.

But within hours, the display was torn down and in its place were flyers, which read: “You cannot co-opt the movement against state violence to memorialize its perpetrators. #blacklivesmatter.”

The activists who put the new flyers stood guard over the bulletin board for the whole day, while the College Republicans worked to resolve the situation through the school's administration.

The school eventually intervened, granting Black Lives Matter control over a bulletin board down the hall from the Blue Lives Matter display.
