White Student Union to Perform Patrols at Towson University

The White Student Union (WSU) is planning its own nighttime police patrols on the campus of Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland, which boasts a 60% African American population, reports

WSU’s website states that its mission aim is “to create an avenue for people to participate in political, cultural, educational and social events to celebrate European heritage.” The WSU has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

WSU president Matthew Heimbach told Towson’s student paper, The Towerlight, that the group’s patrols will be concerned with on-campus safety walks and members will be equipped with flashlights.

The Towerlight reports:

“One thing we’re doing at night is to have a male member accompany female members across campus or to night classes,” Heimbach said. “Not because we’re terrified, but in college everyone is focused on themselves. We just want to make campus a better place. If we see a white person commit a crime against a person who is not white, we’re going to assist the person who was attacked every time.”

Heimbach said female members have also been enrolling in self-defense classes, and members have been going to local gun ranges as a group, but not in a “military way,” Heimbach said.

He said group members would carry no weapons on the nighttime walks.
