“The alleged incident occurred in October and an initial investigation was inconclusive”
We have witnessed some crazy campus hoaxes over the years, but this verges on satire. Are we supposed to believe the KKK is now roaming university dorms in their robes and hoods, trying to recruit students?
The New York Post reports:
University of Utah probing reports of KKK group in dorms
The University of Utah is investigating accusations that a group of men in Ku Klux Klan robes tried to recruit students at a dorm, school officials said.
The alleged incident occurred in October and an initial investigation was inconclusive, but university police are taking a second look after a student questioned on Instagram why it hadn’t been addressed, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
The public university in Salt Lake City is also investigating a second incident a month earlier when a black student reported returning to their dorm in the same building on Sept. 1 to find apparent feces smeared on the door.
The student, who also found a paper towel on the door handle, cleaned up the mess with the help of staffers before reporting the incident to a resident adviser, the newspaper reported.
Housing officials reviewed footage from the dorm that day and couldn’t find any possible suspects, although surveillance cameras may not have covered the area in question, a university spokesperson told the newspaper. It’s unclear which dorm the student — who was immediately moved into new housing — had been living in at the time.
The alleged KKK incident occurred on Oct. 1, according to the report. A resident adviser told university officials other students were overheard recalling men dressed in KKK attire, including white hooded robes, trying to recruit students inside a dorm to the white supremacist group.
The university scoured three days of video, but didn’t find anything matching that description, the university said in a statement.
