A group of students tried to shut down a “cops and robbers”-themed fraternity party at University of Virginia claiming that it mocked the mass incarceration of minorities, Allen B. West reports.
The party, which was hosted by the UVA Delta Psi chapter, involves male fraternity members pretending as prisoners by wearing orange jumpsuits and female guests wearing police uniforms.
But the frat house party was disrupted when around 20 members of the UVA Students United, a group focusing on social justice, came to the scene.
The protesters even accused the attendees as “spoiled brats of the frat” as they were trying to get event stopped.
In their Facebook post, the UVA Students United described the get-together as making a “joke of mass incarceration and the prison-industrial complex, systems that disproportionately brutalize people of color.”
The protesters would later get a glimpse of the real-life cops when the frat called the police and reported the disrupting students for trespassing.
