KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Officials at UW-Parkside near Kenosha promise to punish anyone caught committing three hate crimes on campus since the start of Black History Month.
It all started when a noose made of rubber bands was found Wednesday night in a common area of the Pike River Suites dormitory on campus.
Thursday, a threatening note was left near the door of a female black student who reported the noose. Then Thursday night, fliers were found listing several black students by name, and that they would die in two days.
Parkside's interim dean of students, Cindy Graham, called the behavior unacceptable. She said an all-campus meeting was scheduled for late Thursday night to discuss the incidents.
Graham said only residents were allowed access at the Pike River dorm Thursday evening, and more security officers would monitor all the dorms.
She said that if those responsible for the incidents are Parkside students, they would most likely be expelled.
