San Jose State University Report on Hate Crime Response

Published by KQED News
A new report released on February 3 by San Jose State University sheds light on the way San Jose State University handled troubling hate crimes that were reported on campus last fall.

Four students face criminal charges for allegedly harassing their black roommate, by placing a bicycle lock around his neck, barricading him in his bedroom, and giving him racially charged nicknames.

The report, commissioned by the University and put together by attorney Mike Moye, sought to answer the pressing question of how the incidents could have gone on throughout the entire Fall 2013 semester.

The report found university staff didn't know about the incidents at first, because the victim was reluctant to come forward.
