A college student had an uncomfortable surprise for NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly during his Tuesday night visit to Columbia University. Kelly was visiting a class taught by former New York Mayor David Dinkins when a student-protester (who said he was from NYU) whipped out a projector loaded with a film showing images of police brutality against protesters, which he projected on the wall behind Kelly.
As Columbia’s Bwog reported, it was an “awkward moment”:
People started shifting awkwardly in their chairs, then shifting much more awkwardly when the student turned the projector around so that the film was facing Kelly as he continued to speak. Kelly ignored the film, finished answering his question and called on another student, who was interrupted by a young man reading a textbook about military history.
