Dear Presbyterian College Community,

The independent investigation into the events of Feb. 11 has now concluded, and I write to inform you of the results of that important work.

PC’s use of an impartial, external attorney to conduct the investigation enabled the process to proceed as efficiently and thoroughly as possible. The investigation entailed interviews with 31 individuals, including witnesses from PC and Howard University, and 11 respondents (alleged offenders), many of whom retained attorneys. The investigator collected 44 exhibits, produced a detailed account of all interviews, and supplied PC administrators with a detailed report.

Ultimately, the evidence, including personal statements, eyewitness accounts, and exhibits, indicated that a small number of students taunted members of the visiting Howard University women’s lacrosse team during pre-game warmups using racist, misogynistic, hateful, and otherwise inappropriate language and behaviors. The evidence also revealed that some nearby students and staff took immediate, proactive measures to address the inexcusable behaviors.

PC has therefore taken the following actions as a direct result of the incident and investigation:

PC is permanently separating four students from the college, effective today.
One student received a one-year suspension from PC.
Two students received probated suspensions and must complete educational programs and counseling.
Two students received penalties for alcohol-related policy violations.
PC determined that two students were not involved in any misconduct.

Additionally, several members of PC’s chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity – though not all members – participated in the Feb. 11 incident. Earlier this year, in an unrelated case, the national office of Pi Kappa Phi became aware of allegations of hazing by the PC chapter members and conducted their own investigation into that matter. That office determined that hazing occurred and revoked the PC chapter’s charter. The national fraternity office also left the door open to eventual, possible reestablishment of a charter. However, in light of the PC chapter’s continued student conduct issues, including their significant involvement in the Feb. 11 incident, PC is permanently removing the chapter from campus and eliminating any possible path to reestablishment.

They should be charged with assault by the members of the Howard Lacrosse Team.

I live about 40 minutes from where that  happened.  The sheriff is a blsck house Negro.  Lying through his teeth.  School should sue them.

Body camera footage contradicts sheriff's account of how deputies acted on DSU bus

Body camera footage from Georgia deputies who stopped a Delaware State University women's lacrosse team bus late last month directly contradicts Tuesday statements by the sheriff who defended the stop.

In a public address, Liberty County Sheriff William Bowman said "no personal items on the bus or person(s) were searched" during the April 20 stop. But the bodycam footage, which Delaware Online/The News Journal has obtained and made publicly available without editing, shows deputies rifling through players' backpacks and bags – something those on the bus have said for days.

Bowman also said the stop was not racial profiling because "before entering the motorcoach, deputies were not aware that this school was historically Black or aware of the race of the occupants due to the height of the vehicle and tint of the windows."

DSU to file civil rights complaint over drug search of lacrosse team bus

Delaware State University announced plans to file a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice over what its president called a "constitutionally dubious" drug search of a bus transporting its women's lacrosse team through Georgia last month.

The historically Black university intends to file the complaint next week, alleging "misconduct" by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, the school's president, Tony Allen, said during a press briefing Friday.
