Recap: SuspectVague

The SuspectVague protest took place on Thursday, February 5, 2015 on LSU’s campus. The protest was in response to the text message sent out by LSUPD on Friday, January 30th at 6:38 PM to the LSU community notifying them of an armed robbery in the Kirby Smith Hall parking lot. In the text message the suspect in the crime was identified simply as “black male wearing dark hoodie”. This vague description provokes suspicions of all black males on campus in hoodies, labeling them as suspects and provokes racial profiling.
