BOMBSHELL: Recent hate crime at the Claremont Colleges revealed as hoax!

The perpetrator of the alleged hate crime, which consisted of a professor's car being spray painted with racist slogans and then having its tires slashed and windows broken, has been found to be the victim herself.

The professor in question, one Kerri Dunn, has a two year contract with the college. Not for long, one hopes...

This incident was a serious black eye for the Claremont Colleges and was reported widely by the Southern California news media. In a way, it's reassuring to know that no member of the student community was responsible for this horrible crime.

Of course, this story is all too common.

Addendum: Erin O'Connor lauds CMC for being open about the results of the investigation.

More: the witnesses, who were not students, reported Dunn the day after the crime.
