Supporting an alleged vandal because of his race? Oh, that sounds fair:

Hundreds of students participated in a mass walkout last week to protest the recent arrest of a classmate, demanding “community control” of the school’s police force and even defacing a statue of President Abraham Lincoln with a copy of their demands.

The student, an alleged vandal accused of spray painting dozens of buildings on campus and costing the university $4,000 in repairs, was arrested outside of his classroom last week on suspicion of the charges. Campus police had spent weeks attempting to contact the student, but all phone calls and even several home visits went unanswered, according to a police report.
