This story is going to make you laugh and cry for humanity.
College students at the University of Maryland actually actually believed a “knotted piece of plastic wrap laying on the ground” was possibly a 'hate bias' incident last Tuesday.
“Earlier today, we were notified of a knotted piece of plastic warp laying on the ground in the 7500 block of Baltimore Ave,” The University of Maryland Police Department said in an email. “An officer met with two individuals who were walking south when they noticed the item. Police were notified out of concern from possible hate-bias.”
According to The Daily Wire, students were concerned the plastic wrap looked like a noose.
“Preliminary investigation reveals that this type of material is used to contain and protect loose items during transportation,” the email added. “"Out of an abundance of caution, we are looking into this matter and are conducting a review of our cameras in the area.”
Leave it to college students to think litter or trash is somehow racial.
