    CSU investigates after two Native American men are pulled off tour

    WTF is wrong with people? Why would they call campus cops on two prospective students who were legitimately there on a tour organized by the school? What was this delicate flower parent "nervous" about? This is ridiculous.

    Colorado State University investigates after two Native American men are pulled off tour after nervous parent calls cops
    Two Native American men who were touring Colorado State University were pulled off the organized visit by campus police when a parent called to report that she was nervous about their presence, school officials said Wednesday.

    Police questioned the men and allowed them to rejoin the tour, but by the time they were released, the group had moved on without them. The men then returned to CSU’s Ammons Hall before leaving campus and going home to New Mexico.

    The incident on Monday has prompted a review by the university. CSU officials say campus police responded appropriately to the concerns of the parent, but they also reached out to the two men who only wanted to visit the campus to see if they wanted to enroll at CSU.

    “This incident is sad and frustrating from nearly every angle, particularly the experience of two students who were here to see if this was a good fit for them,” university officials said in an e-mail to students Wednesday.

    “As a University community, we deeply regret the experience of these students, while they were guests on our campus,” officials said.
    The e-mail was signed by Leslie Taylor, vice president for enrollment and access, Mary Ontiveros, vice president for diversity and Blanche Hughes, vice president for student affairs.
    University officials couldn’t be reached for further comment.

    It certainly is ridiculous. Colorado State University is where I taught economics for a decade in the 1990's, so I am pretty embarrassed by this incident.

    This is really not reflective of the kind of community Fort Collins generally is. I have NO idea why they even listened to this goofy parent.

    I wouldn't place the blame on CSU. The article says that a parent called the police. That individual is the only person at fault, so far as I can tell.

    It says this: CSU officials say campus police responded appropriately to the concerns of the parent....

    I don't know WHY they would say that!

    From what I've heard, the campus police found no issue for concern and released them, but the delay caused them to get separated from their group.

    Who knows? Still, when a frightened parent calls the police, they are sort of obligated to respond.

    Maybe they should have arrested the nervous parent instead.

    Yeah, maybe for filing a false report, or something! You know what this story reminds me of? It reminds me of THIS story:

    They can't at least ask this parent to explain why they are "frightened"? Before heading over there, I mean.
