    Student Arrested at Syracuse U is Reportedly a Social Justice Activist

    Student Arrested at Syracuse U is Reportedly a Social Justice Activist

    “arrested on charges of fourth-degree criminal mischief and marking graffiti, both misdemeanors”

    Just days ago, Syracuse University’s chancellor said the school believes recent racist activity on campus was a hoax.

    USA Today reports:

    Arrest made at Syracuse, chancellor bows to student demands as racist hate incidents continue

    The Syracuse Police Department has made an arrest after a series of new graffiti markings were discovered on school grounds, authorities said Thursday.

    The announcement came hours after Syracuse Chancellor Ken Syverud agreed to the demands of students protesting the university’s handling of a two-week run of almost daily racist, anti-Semitic incidents that have prompted tension on the campus 250 miles north of New York City.

    Kym McGowan, 18, was arrested on charges of fourth-degree criminal mischief and marking graffiti, both misdemeanors, police said. She was released on an appearance ticket.

    City police said McGowan was connected to four incidents of graffiti in and around a garage and the school’s library. That graffiti, however, appeared to be supporting the anti-racism protests on the campus. It was not immediately clear whether the arrest was related to any of the prior incidents.

    The incidents that precipitated the protests were a hoax, and they knew it, but they still gave in to protester demands?

    Is it just me, or is there something wrong with this picture?

      The administrators *want* an excuse. It’s like the EPA encouraging, helping, and paying outside groups to sue so they can be “forced” to create and apply a regulation they otherwise wouldn’t be able to enact.

    Had this pegged as a hoax from the get-go.

    Remember that the protester demands including expulsion of anyone distributing these materials….please act swiftly on the demands of the loony bin and oust one of their own!
