A black college freshman in California who was allegedly subjected to racially-charged torment by his three white suitemates is described as a “mild-mannered, sweet kid” who was physically afraid of his roommates and what they would do if he reported the abuse.
From August until October, prosecutors allege three freshmen at California’s San Jose State University taunted their black suitemate with racial epithets, Nazi imagery and on one occasion, clamped a U-shaped bicycle lock around his neck.
The three suspects, Logan Beaschler and Colin Warren, both 18, and Joseph Bomgardner, 19, have been suspended pending an investigation and are being charged with a misdemeanor hate crime and battery, police said. They have not yet entered a plea. A fourth unnamed student was also suspended from the school in connection with the incidents, the school said late Friday.
These racially-charged harassment and bullying incidents really are getting worse by the day. SMH.
