U.Md. police investigate 2 ‘hate bias’ incidents

September 5th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Hateful language discovered on whiteboards at the University of Maryland, College Park, have prompted police to launch an investigation into “hate bias” at two halls on campus.

On Sept. 2, around 3:40 p.m., police at U.Md. responded to Queen Anne’s Hall for reports of a hate bias incident that occurred between August 30, and Sept. 1. WTOP reports a student reported to police that anti-LGBTQ comments were found on a couple of whiteboards and verbal anti-LGBTQ statements were overheard the following night.

 

Later than night at 8:07 p.m. on Sept. 2, UMPD responded to La Plata Hall for a swastika that was drawn on a whiteboard. The incident occurred between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. that day.

In both incidents, a detective was immediately assigned, witness canvasses were conducted and follow-up interviews were completed.

    This is how mass shootings originate…. from HATE. I applaud the university for having police launch an investigation. Maybe this will save some students lives….this time.

    By the way, what IS America coming to, Mr. Fornwalt, when an adult can’t use correct spelling in a post? See your above, “What is America coming too?” Too??
