A noose was found at Columbia University's Teachers College on Tuesday, police said.
A black female professor found the hangman's noose dangling from her office door.
Teachers College President Susan Fuhrman issued the following statement to the Teachers' College community:
"The police were here this morning because a hangman's noose was discovered on the office door of one of our African American faculty members. The incident has been reported to the New York City Police Department (Detectives Bureau of Manhattan) and is under active investigation by the Hate Crimes Task Force.
"The TC community and I deplore this hateful act, which violates every Teachers College and societal norm."
Teachers College officials planned a community meeting for Wednesday to discuss the incident.
Teachers College is a prestigious school for aspiring educators, and was rated the No. 1 graduate school of education by U.S. News & World Report.
In Search Of the Nutty Professor
by: Malcolm A. Kline, August 19, 2004
We Eddie Murphy fans may have to rent The Nutty Professor and its various sequels but most college students can find a local variety of the educated dunce at their own institutions of higher learning. Here are a few that weve come across:
Kerri Dunn at Claremont McKenna College vandalized her own car and fabricated a hate crime, of which she declared herself the victim, before the local police discovered her hoax and the actual offenses that she committed in another state.
I think Mellencamp will have to add Columbia into his Jena song. Those lib professors are all worried about a noose.
Cornballs all of them.
I smell a Duke case....
“A black female professor found the hangman’s noose dangling from her office door.”
I’m guessing that she “found” it right after she put it there.
Just a gay S&M advertisement.
Time will tell if this is a hoax or a real story. History tells us that it’s probably a 50-50 chance at this point.
People would quit doing this is if they weren’t guaranteed to get their stunt on the national news. I have a radical idea: If a professor or student or anyone, of any color, finds a noose on their door, they should take it down, throw it in the trash, and resume their normal activities.
Sharpton will be on this one like a fly on a cowpie, but he better be wary — lib profs, as you pointed, have been known to do some nutty things for attention.
Apprehended for what ? I didn’t know that hanging a noose, with no other physical or verbal threat, was a crime.
Cue the useful idiot rioters and warm up Je$$e’s Lear jet and limo.
Yeah, she went to jail too for it. Is she still in the pokey?
But, but, but I thought colleges considered this an issue of free speech.
The old implied threat excuse.
If just hanging a noose was a crime, someone would/should be arrested at every performance of King Lear.
