SOMERS Following days of reported hate crimes and heightened security at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, a student has confessed to creating the list threatening black students because she wanted greater attention to the issue, according to authorities Friday night.
The suspect, whose identity was being withheld for her protection, reportedly told authorities she created the fliers which listed 13 black students by name and threatened they were going to die in two days found Thursday because she was not satisfied with the initial response from a resident assistant to rubber bands that were said to look like a noose, according to a press release from the Kenosha County Sheriffs Department Friday.
In an escalation of events since Wednesday, which kicked off Black History Month on campus, a series of what was initially believed to be racially motivated threats at Parkside, 900 Wood Road, had sparked an atmosphere of fear among students and launched a criminal investigation on the campus.
There is absolutely no danger to the students at Parkside due to this threat, the release said. Through investigation KSDs detectives were able to determine that there never was a threat of harm to students at Parkside.

She needs a year in prison to think about her life followed by civil suits from those she placed on the hoax list.
Orchestrated by the media and thier supporters, wink wink nod nod. Keep the racial fires burning they are told. Black on white crime ok bury it, white on black crime explosive! print print print!!!!
Her identity is being withheld for her protection?
Here’s an idea, put her behind bars. THAT’LL protect her right nice.
I’m sure all the “crack investigative reporters” will get right on this.
Not good at html, but here's the web address of the rubber band "noose" in question.
Really?! you have to be looking for racism to think that is a noose.
Just guessing that the reason her identity is being withheld, is because she’s going to turn out to be black?
Like the lesbian a couple years ago, who vandalized her own car...
I’ll go so far as to guess that a (majority) of this sort of thing, is hoaxes.
“Really?! you have to be looking for racism to think that is a noose.”
A huge number of people are doing just that.
Looking for racism. So desperately looking for racism that when they don’t find it, they MAKE IT UP.
If she were black and the other way around she would not get a Tawana Brawley free pass

If there is no danger to any students, why is the name of the perp shielded to protect her? Her name needs to be out on the internet for future employers to be aware of her history.
Doesn’t this happen every year about this time?
People don’t have enough trouble in their lives that they have to go around creating it for themselves? A sad system that produces people like this in the numbers that it does.
I make those all the time during slow moments at work. Absolutley nothing racist or offensive about them. But if somebody gets offended, well I mean to offend such people then.
this is fraud. can’t find news, make it up? WTF. Put her butt in jail.
She put her own name on the list.
She is black.
Never forget, the Nazis did this type of thing to to Jews in the 30s. It’s called scapegoating, and these Leftists are making up, distorting and embellishing stories to gain public sympathy. In Deutchland, ‘Arayans’ were always portrayed as innocent victims of greedy and rapascious Jews. In 2012 Amerika, preferred minorities and protected classes (gays, Leftists) are doing the same thing and it is reprehensible. Right now the target of the scapegoating appears somewhat nebulous, but make no mistake, the target of these ‘hate crime’ hoaxes is conservatives.
