DAVIS — Just over a month after a young Davis police officer was shot and killed on the job, a University of California, Davis professor was under fire for comments he made in the past about killing officers.
UC Davis literature professor and author Joshua Clover is facing scrutiny over his comments about police.
The article goes on to state the following:
In an interview published in 2016, when asked what’s wrong with society today, he said, “People think that cops need to be reformed. They need to be killed.”
Another quote attributed to the professor from 2014 was, “I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no? I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age.”
Nick Irvin, a UC Davis comparative literature student, exposed Clover’s comments in an opinion piece for The California Aggie. Irvin told FOX40 he’d recieved an emailed response to his piece from Clover, in which the professor “stood by his comments and offered no explanation.”

.@MarcosBreton: Take a bow, UC Davis English professor Joshua Clover.
Not only are you an impostor, but your response to The Bee makes you cowardly as well. https://t.co/1nAV26MVfM
