Two students who attend the University of Connecticut have been arrested and charged with hate crimes after they were recorded walking outside student apartments saying racial slurs, according to a report released by the Washington Post.

Jarred Karal and Ryan Mucaj, both 21-year-old white students, have been charged with the misdemeanor of ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race for violating a state statute concerning hate crimes.

Here’s more from TheBlaze:

The students also face potential discipline from the school, even possible expulsion, for violating the student code of conduct, UConn President Thomas C. Katsouleas said in a statement.

“It is supportive of our core values to pursue accountability, through due process, for an egregious assault on our community that has caused considerable harm,” Katsouleas said.

Karal and Mucaj, and a third unnamed student who was not charged, were walking by student housing and playing a game in which they yelled offensive words. According to the incident report, Karal and Mucaj began saying “n****” as they walked by student housing, and someone in the apartments began recording.

The video captured of the incident went viral earlier this month, which sparked outrage among students and faculty. The video eventually made it into the hands of law enforcement.

If you have any information about this racist recording at UConn. Please email [email protected] We will not tolerate racist behavior on this campus ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼

The university NAACP has asked the school to take action against the students involved in the incident in order to make an example of them and allow other students to know that such behavior is unacceptable.

Here’s a snippet from a letter the NAACP wrote to the university:

“If the university does not adequately address and handle these occurrences of racism appropriately, it will create a culture in which racism is tolerated and normalized. We demand for your full assurance that you will take appropriate measures to hold the students involved in these heinous acts of racism accountable.”

A group of students held on-campus protests as a response to the incident.

In-N-Out Burger Tells San Fran They Won’t Enforce Vax Proof Mandates

The government’s expectation that fast food workers should enforce a mandate they didn’t ask for is ludicrous on its face.

For many Americans, there is a very unnerving feeling when it comes to the idea of having to prove your vaccination status in order to participate in the everyday machinations of society.  It feels icky, as though our ideas of freedom and equality are somehow variable and malleable.

Sure, you have the freedom to refuse a vaccine, but that choice is going to make you a second-class citizen in a great many ways, ranging from potentially losing your job as a police officer, to being unable to eat inside at your favorite fast food joint.

It’s that latter issue that has the higher-ups at In-N-Out Burger growing irate.

The city of San Francisco temporarily closed an In-N-Out fast-food restaurant over the company’s refusal to force customers to prove they are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health closed the Fisherman’s Wharf In-N-Out location on Oct. 14 after the popular burger joint did not check the vaccination status of customers, which violates an August mandate from the city requiring indoor diners to show proof of vaccination.

The restaurant’s corporate team was irate over the entire debacle.

“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Arnie Wensinger said in a statement to Fox News. “After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Wensinger declared, slamming the San Francisco Department of Health’s requirements as “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe” and accusing the city of asking restaurants to “segregate Customers” based on vaccine documentation.

Given the violence and vitriol that we’ve seen in some instances of attempted vaccine-proof enforcement, there are likely very few entry-level fast food workers who are qualified to handle such situations, which could open these corporations up to serious legal liabilities.

Items Belonging to Brian Laundrie Discovered as Medical Examiner Arrives on Scene

This is HUGE news!

Published

on

After several long and tedious weeks of searching, there may finally be a break in the case of Brian Laundrie, a fugitive who is the single person of interest in the death of Gabby Petito.

Laundrie disappeared shortly before Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest, near a campsite that the two visited during a cross country road trip before Brian returned home alone and refused to cooperate with authorities.

Then, much to the dismay of investigators, Brian went hiking in the Carlton Reserve near his Florida home and never returned.

Now, investigators at a different section of the wildlife area have discovered items believed to belong to Brian, calling in his family – and a medical examiner – to the scene.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie, the parents of fugitive Brian Laundrie, ventured into Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park early Wednesday morning, where Fox News Digital saw an officer apparently tell parents that law enforcement “might have found something.”

Steven Bertolino, who represents the Laundrie family, confirmed to Fox News Digital that the Laundries informed law enforcement last night of their intentions to search the park and met officers there. Bertolino confirmed that while searching areas that Brian frequented, “some articles belonging to Brian were found.”

And also:

Officers are now conducting a more thorough search of the area, Bertolino said. A spokesperson for the Sarasota County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the office was called to the Myakkahatchee on Wednesday, but would not say anything more.

The search for Brian Laundrie has drawn national attention in recent weeks, as Americans continue to clamor for justice for Gabby Petito.
