(The Root)   Back in January, eight colleges and universities received bomb threats on the same day, which naturally prompted state and federal to pull out all the stops to... wait ... (holds hand to ear) ... okay, no suspects, no arrests. Gee... wonder why?   (theroot.com) divider line

We've secretly replaced the police department with the Ku Klux Klan.  Let's see if anyone notices!

"Secretly"?  And "replaced"?  Do we need to give you a dictionary for Christmas?

If only we could solve crimes with smugness.

With the way most of the high profile "hate crimes" have gone in the last 15 years or so, this could just as easily be a hint from LE that you don't want to know who they've had a heart to heart talk with about the case.
 
2022-08-19 11:01:52 AM  
Since this was January 4th instead of 6th, there is clearly no.connextion with the traitorous riots 2 days later

Weird how links to The Root stopped getting greenlit until all the former contributors came out against it then it found it's way back into the Fark rotation.

Ok... so the fark link submission is racist or something? I just don't understand what conspiracy you're trying to peddle here.

Yeah this sucks but not every high profile crime gets solved.

We still have no idea who did the anthrax attack after 9-11

We need more free money and we're going to complain about having to apply for a grant is what I read.  Other colleges have put in security systems long ago. You can't expect people to believe this is the first time HBCUs have received threats. This is just the first time the HBCUs are going to act upon them. I wonder how many times they've been given funds earmarked for this purpose only to have the funds disappear into another part of the college because security infrastructure just hasn't been a priority. Or corruption. Happens at USC and UCLA all the time.

Or if we could prevent crimes with Trumpanzian ignorance and spittle-flecked vitriol, we wouldn't need to solve anything.

I think it's trying to say that anything that makes white people feel bad is racist.
 
2022-08-19 11:37:34 AM  
We've seen these racist incidents at colleges all over the country, haven't we?  Nooses, swastikas and sorts of hateful things graffitied on walls and doors.

Seems to me and as I recall, more often than not
the perpetrator ends up being a POC.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with these colleges being historically black. Nope, not at all.

Look, cops aren't going to arrest other cops just because they have unconventional weekend hobbies.

You misspelled "of what they do on the clock".  Also, you would have to have a cop not doing it for there to be someone to do the arresting.

Meh. Root articles are usually good for a bit of morning rage. This one just isn't bringing the syrup.

There you go. Most so-called "racism" is little more than a contrivance by Jussie Smollet types, intended to make white people look bad.
If POC weren't so busy inventing fake racism and alleged "slavery" and so on, they could have been bettering themselves, and pulling themselves up by their bootstraps!
Well, at least YOU have seen through this fraud, and brought us enlightenment.
 
2022-08-19 12:27:19 PM  
I was going to guess that it's because they don't have enough information to arrest any suspects, but CLEARLY the Fark 101st FBI Brigade knows who really did it and must have critical data like:
1. Names
2. Times
3. Phone numbers
4. Corroborating evidence

They're just withholding from the feds for shiats&giggles. Oh, you don't have any of that? You just think it just have been racist cops because? Then STFU. Not all crimes get solved because you think it's "so obvious" who did it.

It's not TV, you can't yell enhance enhance at a computer while typing on the same keyboard as another person while someone else is saying hold them on the line for 10 more seconds! The way you can bounce phone calls around or have single use sim cards with cash it's pretty hard to trace things. If there actually was a bomb that went off I'm sure they would be knocking on some doors overseas to figure it out.

When you consider that the endless whinging about Root submissions came from conservative white people being upset that they weren't being catered to by a website whose core audience was progressive non-whites, yes some racism played a role.

Exactly. And we get tons of links from Politico, The Hill, Fox News, and even the Washington Times and Examiner. And the goddamned Yew York Post. And f*Reason and even mother*king Quillette.

But oh lordy, you post one like from the Root or Jezebel and these fragile little white-ass snowflakes lose their goddamned minds.

The traitorous riots weren't 2 days later, they were 363 days earlier. There might be a connection there, after all the Jan 6 investigations are ongoing.

/They are ongoing... right? Someone please just tell me they're really gonna prosecute TFG for seditious conspiracy. For some reason, I really need to believe in American justice this morning. You don't have to believe it. Just help me believe it for a minute

Somebody in the comments says the FBI caught some kids, and arrested a few of them.  They probably didn't release the names, addresses and stuff because they are juvenile.  If so, this is a false news article.

Tell you what... go find a mirror, and then watch yourself while you read your post out loud.

If you're not embarrassed at the way you look, then get back to me.
