    I have no idea what was said between them.

    Mom suspects racism after sons are pulled from college tour
    The mother of two Native American teenagers who campus police pulled from a college tour in Colorado after a parent reported feeling nervous about them said she believes her sons were victims of racial profiling and she feared for their safety after learning about the encounter.

    In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Lorraine Kahneratokwas Gray described receiving a frantic phone call from her son, 19-year-old Thomas Kanewakeron Gray, about the incident at Colorado State University.

    He and his 17-year-old brother, Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, had saved enough money to drive roughly seven hours from the family's home in Santa Cruz, New Mexico, to Fort Collins to tour the campus, she told the AP.

    "I felt they had been the victim of racism and that they weren't safe there," she said in a post this week on Facebook.

    She later told the AP, "I don't think they even grasped the magnitude of what happened to them until we talked."

    A Mom Called Police Because Two Native American Teens on Same College Tour Made Her 'Nervous'
    Thomas Kanewakeron Gray, 19, and his 17-year-old brother Lloyd Skanahwati Gray saved up their money to drive seven hours from Santa Cruz, New Mexico, to Colorado State University in Fort Collins on Monday, taking the family’s only car so they could go on a college tour.

    Shortly after they arrived late, police pulled the brothers from the group, CNN reported. The reason: the mother of another prospective student said they made her “nervous,” CNN said.[...]

    “The officer patted down both of them, then asked my 17 year old … to empty his pockets,” Lorraine wrote, although she was not present at the time of the incident. “When he tried to do as the officer asked, he then yelled at my son to ‘keep your hands out of your pockets.’ Apparently this happened several times before my son finally said in frustration, ‘which one do you want me to do?’ ”

    Colorado university invites Native American students back
    Colorado State University is inviting two Native American teenagers pulled from a campus tour by police back to the school, saying it will pick up the tab for them to travel there for a VIP tour with their family.

    The school also said Friday it would refund the money the brothers spent to travel to the school for last Monday's tour.
    College officials say a woman in that tour group called police and reported feeling nervous about the presence of 19-year-old Thomas Kanewakeron Gray and his 17-year-old brother, Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, after they joined the tour late.

    "We deeply regret the unwelcoming and concerning experience they had while guests on our campus," said the university, which says it is reviewing how a similar incident can be avoided or handled differently in the future.

    Yeah. STILL no explanation of WHY this woman was 'nervous', or WHO she is. I think they should reveal her identity. So that reporters can, you know, ASK her just why they made her 'nervous'.

    They could have taken the parent into "protective" custody.

    Wonder what this bitch reported?

    "Hey, some of the tour members don't look white. Please come arrest them."

    I hate people sometimes.

    Yup. Play bitch games, win bitch prizes.

    At the very least, her name should be made public.

    A private business having its own private police force?

    Gosh golly. How could this possibly have resulted in irregular uses of authority?

    Private police forces incorrectly applying police powers. Huh. I never would have seen that coming.

    As a former LE though.

    If the guys had been acting like total dicks the police wouldn’t be able to say it. It would be private. And they’d have to eat this shit sandwich a d not say anything in their own defense in order to protect their privacy.

    Kudos to CSU for stepping up as they have.

    As to the woman in question, I would love for her to be questioned as to why she was "nervous".

    She probably thought they were illegal immigrants.
