NOOSES ON CMU CAMPUS
(2007-11-16)
(wgvu) - MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - Federal authorities are
investigating who hung four nooses in a classroom on the Central
Michigan University campus.
A student discovered the hangman's nooses in the Engineering and
Technology Building on Monday. Campus Police Chief Stan Dinius says
the nooses were made from "flexible compressed gas lines" that
are used for laboratory work.
The FBI is working with campus police to question students and
faculty about whether they noticed suspicious activity in the
building.
Central Michigan Life, the school's student paper, says more
than 30 students rallied on campus Friday against hate crimes. And
a state senator and activist groups have called for a federal
probe.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for information in the
incident.
