We academic librarians have it pretty easy compared to public librarians. This librarian needed a gun…but probably wasn’t allowed to have one:
“He just started singing loud, singing rap songs and cursing,” says a witness who did not wish to be identified. “And the librarian just walked over to him, and she asked him not to be so disruptive, that he couldn’t use that kind of language in the library. And he said, ‘Okay.’”
Officers say Harper got louder so the librarian asked him to leave. Instead, he punched the woman, threw her to the ground and stomped on her, according to the witness.
