Brown may reconsider lecture policy after protest


Brown University says it may have to consider changing policies on public lectures after New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly was shouted down by students and members of the community as he tried to give a speech about his department’s controversial ‘‘stop-and-frisk’’ policy. Kelly’s speech was canceled Tuesday when protesters would not let him speak. Brown spokeswoman Marisa Quinn said Wednesday that it is valuable to have such events open to the public, but that they need to allow the free exchange of ideas.
