[Ed. – Another day, another hoax. As observed previously, we’re past the point at which it’s valid to question these “hate crime” reports. It’s valid to assume they’re hoaxes unless proven otherwise. The people who’ve made that happen are the ones who purport to be the most agitated about hate crimes.]

In mid-November, a Drake University student told school officials she had received four racist notes in one of the residence halls, at least one of which was addressed to her.

After a police and school investigation, the student, who has not been charged or named, admitted to writing one of the notes. The Des Moines Register reports that Drake officials “are confident the four notes reported by the female student were hoaxes.”

The student who sent the four hoax notes now faces harassment charges, according to Sgt. Paul Parizek, a Des Moines, IA, police spokesman (whether she will actually be charged remains to be seen and is unlikely). Drake spokesman Jarad Bernstein told the Register that the student also faces a campus discipline procedure, which could result in her expulsion.
