A university’s police department has said it will be taking no action following what is believed to be one of its former students posting racist remarks using an email address associated with the university.
Corporal Christopher Brown of the California State University Long Beach’s Police Department said that the racist remarks describing a white academic as “White trash” did not break the law by someone pertaining to be former student Eric Fisher. “I would agree his comment is disparaging, but I detect no threat or violation of law,” said Corporal Christopher Brown. “Mr. Fisher, if that is his real name, has the freedom under the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution to express his views.
“Since he is not affiliated with the University itself, there is no recourse for student conduct and discipline.“
