David Daniel, a senior and vice president of the Black Student Union on campus, told the station the school's administration sent a campus-wide email about a bias incident. Soon images of the sticky notes were being shared — and KSDK said text message images contained racial slurs and threats, including the N-word and "lynch." Daniel then organized a demonstration during which students chanted and held up posters, the station said, adding that in one clip students were...

    Deloitte, the employer of a woman killed by a deranged vagrant who pushed her in front of an oncoming train in Times Square Station last week, helped fund a non-profit that sued the MTA last year for laws barring people from staying in a subway station for more than an hour, arguing that it 'excluded' the homeless. Michelle Alyssa Go, 40, a senior manager at consulting conglomerate Deloitte from the Upper West Side, died after she was shoved off the N/Q/R/W platform at West 42nd Street and Broadway at around 9.40am last Saturday by Simon Martial, 61.   Martial, who was charged with second-degree murder, told reporters that he committed the senseless act 'because I'm God, I can do it,' and his sister Josette Simon told outlets that he had been battling with schizophrenia for two decades and that he belonged in a mental health facility.

    A Pennsylvania grand jury has recommended that the trio of Sharon Hill cops who fired their guns outside a high school football game in August, killing 8-year-old Fanta Bility, face criminal charges for their actions. On Tuesday, the Delaware County District Attorney’s office filed charges of voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, and 10 counts of reckless endangerment against the three officers. District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer also made the bombshell announcement that his office would be dropping first-degree murder charges against the two teens that police and prosecutors had previously insisted were responsible for Fanta’s death. In November, three months after the Aug. 27 football game, Stollsteimer made the controversial decision to charge Hasein Strand, 18, and Angelo “AJ” Ford, 16, with Fanta’s murder. Using the murky legal principle of transferred intent, the district attorney argued that by engaging in a gunfight 140 feet away from the officers and by drawing police fire, Strand and Ford bore the responsibility for Fanta’s death, even though it was caused directly by the police. It is still unknown which of the three officers—Devon G....
