So now the campus police at the University of Maryland are investigating “a discarded piece of plastic wrap” as “a possible hate-bias incident” (http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9373). Some snowflake saw it lying on the ground and decided it was a noose, indicative of some soon-to-be-enacted lynching.
At first police said, “It’s just trash,” but that wasn’t good enough for “students.” So now the kampus kops have to pore over hours of closed-circuit spy camera footage to see if they can find some culprit purposely dropping the little bit of plastic there to terrorize people who really want to be terrorized.
Because of the “incident,” some of the students are demanding stricter “hate speech” rules.
Is anybody getting the idea, yet, that America’s bloated, over-funded, overcrowded “higher education” system is not performing any useful function–and needs to be cut way back?
