EDINBORO, Pa. -- A black student at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania illegally accessed another student's e-mail account to send racist and threatening messages to about 20 other black students, university police said.
Douglas A. Spadey, 18, of Philadelphia, was arraigned yesterday on charges of unlawful use of a computer, harassment by communication and terroristic threats, Cpl. Robert Burns said.
The messages were sent Monday and Mr. Spadey admitted sending them, Cpl. Burns said.
"This individual was trying to call attention to himself . . . (and) it blew up in his face," police Chief Tom Nelson said. "He didn't understand that this is a big issue."
The university closed the e-mail account used to send the messages and notified all students, faculty and staff of the incident.
"Acts of this nature will not be tolerated at Edinboro University," President Frank Pogue said in a statement.
Mr. Spadey was in Erie County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bond, Cpl. Burns said.

Philadelphia, I've heard, is the city of brotherly love ...
If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.
Cynthia McKinney in drag?
For example, one of our collegues would leave to go somewhere but forget to lock his computer, then next thing you know, we are all sent an email from him describing his desire to be named "Suzy" and his destined sex change operation.
It was some great practical joking.
Things are pretty slow when you have to concoct racism whole cloth. Racism in America will stop when calling someone a racist stops being popular, and effective. Racism has transformed from a hurdle to a crutch.
"Douglas Spadey??? You can't be serious.
Well, er, that's what they call him....
Glad this wasn't at Slippery Rock.
...and succeeded beyond his wildest expectation.
Criminal Number 18F
Sometimes you just gotta call a spadey a spadey...
Do you suppose his nickname is Ace?
Affirmative Fiction "bump"
We have such a shortage of bigotry in this country that blacks have to create their own hate crimes.
You know, that may be true? Since Clinton left office, I have never heard of a black church burning?
Sounds to me like the perp was trying to cause conflict on campus.
And so do whites. Especially OJ's ex.
Is this being treated as a hate crime?
What was the name of the student whose e-mail account he used? 'Ima Honkey'?
