    Hey, by the way. Did you know we’re building a drive-on ferry from Canada to France? It’s true. :-)

    This is way cool! But why France and not the UK or Portugal?

    Because of wine, cheese, and french fries.

    "According to the recording, the caller told a dispatcher that the teens arrived late in the tour and wouldn't respond to questions about their names or what they wanted to study at the school.

    "They are not, definitely not, a part of the tour," said the woman, identified in a police report as a 45-year-old white woman from Colorado. "And their behavior is just really odd. And I've never called, ever, about anybody. But they joined our tour. They won't give their names."

    The woman also said during the call that the teens were "lying the whole time," but doesn't offer specifics to support the claim, except to say that one of them laughed when she asked what they were studying. She also repeatedly told the dispatcher that her concern could be "completely paranoid" and apologized "if it's nothing."

    Other than saying the teens were wearing all black clothing with "dark stuff on it," the caller did not physically describe them until questioned by the dispatcher. She said she believed they were Hispanic, and described their clothing as having a "weird symbolism or wording on it."

    It appears at least one of the brothers was wearing a T-shirt of a death metal band called Cattle Decapitation. On its Facebook page, the band offered the teens "free guest list spots to our shows for life."

    The caller's name was redacted in the police report, along with the teenagers' names."




    Am taking the Mom's side on this one. She saw/heard what she considered to be concerning behavior and she called the police.

    The police arrived, sorted things out and all was well.

    This is the way things are supposed to work. The claims of racism are disappointing.

    Really? They are "odd" because they won't respond to some strange lady, who is NOT a university employee, badgering them with personal questions? What right does she have to demand their private info?

    She has every right to ask. They have no obligation to provide it.

    But it appears her concerns began before that point. Which led to her action of calling authorities.
