BOULDER, Colo. — A woman who was shown in a video making racist comments toward University of Colorado Boulder students was arrested Friday, according to police.

The CU Boulder Police Department says 33-year-old Rebekah Krajacic was booked into the Boulder County Jail on a misdemeanor harassment charge.

Police were notified that Krajacic was in the library in the Benson Earth Sciences building Friday. Officers responded and arrested her.

According to police, Krajacic made the racist comments in the Engineering Center on Sunday.

“She was using racial slurs against a person of color,” said Scott Pribble, spokesman for CU Boulder police. “And some shouting of some language that was not appropriate.”

Police say they have had contact with Krajacic before but she is not affiliated with CU Boulder.

The incident sparked an uproar on campus as many students demanded action from university leaders.

On Tuesday, Chancellor Philip DiStefano made an address to the campus community. However, many students walked out of the event.

On Wednesday morning, the university’s Black Student Alliance organized a protest.

According to the CU Independent, hundreds of students gathered at the protest to demand the university commits to ending discrimination.

Following the protest, the university issued a release stating administrators had met with students and agreed to reforms addressing racism on campus.

Disgusting behavior, but speech should not be illegal. I think the law is unconstitutional.

Just because this Constitution thing you talk about doesn't allow it, hate speech prosecutions are alive and well.

How much of a leap is it from "Not my president!" and "the Electoral College is obsolete!"?

OK. Now I have to know what the racial slurs are.

I know of anti-black slurs, but what specifically did she say?

"You Kamala Harris type of person, I denounce you, for whatever color you are!

Is there a list of these slurs somewhere so that you can tell if you’re breaking the law, or do they just make it up on the fly ex post facto?

You don’t have any right not to be offended. Check the US Constitution, Colorado Commies.

“Hate Thought” is coming soon.

It was not the speech. It was the disturbing the peace

Basically the wacko broad was disturbing the peace and should have been locked up. One minor thought...What if she was unemployed and homeless and wanted to spend the winter in jail with free everything till spring arrived. Boulder would be about the perfect place especially if she could get into the mental health ward. Seriously, there are ways to a means. Of course, I could be wrong about all of this. And yes the loony tune female should have been arrested for disturbing the peace and for disorderly conduct.

Got that right. Got a flaming liberal white co-worker in Boulder. He is the most H1B Indian foreigner-loving, Somali Muslim-loving (he is from Minnesota) and now Kurd-loving liberal in existence. Everything the fault of White Supremacists and the United States. He was screaming about Climate-change. I asked him about the Communist Chinese, pollution and China’s invasion of SE Asia and it’s brutal suppression of a Hong Kong. He said it’s fine that China controls the world. It’s their turn now he says.

A “racial slur” is now a crime? I assume this is narrowly limited such that, for example, “odious honkey” would not be deemed to be criminal?
