To the UCD Community
On May 6th, we had an unfortunate incident on campus at the Memorial Union bookstore.
A widely viewed social media video shows members of the UCD Police Department restraining a woman on the ground.
I recognize this video can be disturbing to some and is the type of event that is very unusual on campus. It has been widely reported that this woman was suffering from a mental crisis. I wanted to take a moment to provide some background and context to this incident.
