From The College Fix:

In a Daily Cardinal op-ed, Caitlin Tyler-Richards, Irene Toro Martinez, Leland Pan, and Rachel Gross write “It is disheartening, if unsurprising, that the UW-Madison Police Department chose to circulate incriminating photos when the suspects are two young black men.

“The images in Monday’s email undermine the former UWPD Chief ’s efforts to respect campus concerns about the ability of Clery Act emails to perpetuate racial profiling, thereby threatening the safety of black students on campus.”
