Pro-Trump Post-It note prompts col­lege to call po­lice in fear

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Brad­ford Richard­son

A Catholic col­lege called the po­lice af­ter find­ing a Post-it note with a deroga­tory mes­sage for de­trac­tors of Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump.

A pa­role of­fi­cer and de­tec­tive stopped by Edge­wood Col­lege in Wis­con­sin in re­sponse to the sticky note — which read, “suck it up p— s” fol­lowed by a wink­ing smi­ley face.

They con­cluded that the 3-by-3 inch

ad­he­sive plac­ard posed “no im­me­di­ate threat,” The Col­lege Fix re­ported.

A spokesper­son for the Madi­son Po­lice Depart­ment said the mat­ter is “not an open in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

The mock­ing mis­sive was found on a win­dow at Edge­wood Col­lege’s Of­fice of Stu­dent Di­ver­sity and In­clu­sion. It co­in­cided with a cam­paign on cam­pus to en­cour­age stu­dents to ex­press their feel­ings about the gen­eral elec­tion with sticky notes.

Tony Cham­bers, vice pres­i­dent for stu­dent de­vel­op­ment at the col­lege, called the note a “tar­geted act of in­tim­i­da­tion and cow­ardice.” He also called the po­lice.
