The lecture by Doctor Arthur Laffer was shut down as it just got started as students disrupted the event. To protesters arrested.
Meanwhile the chair of the Broome County Legislature, Republican Daniel Reynolds issued a statement saying he would not set foot on the campus until issues were resolved and all student and visitors are guaranteed safety.
