Boisterous Protests at Brown University Curtail Speech by New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly

Students at the prestigious Ivy League Brown University had a petition with over 500 signatures requesting that the scheduled speech by New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly be cancelled. Students were outraged over the NYPD's "stop and frisk" policy which was called "racial profiling" by a federal District Court Judge. When Brown University refused to concede to their demands, the students staged boisterous demonstrations both inside and outside the auditorium where Kelly was set to speak, forcing the cancellation of Kelly's speech midstream.
