    The Hartford Courant ^ | July 2, 2012 | DAVID OWENS and HILDA MUÑOZ
    NEW BRITAIN —— The day Alexandra Pennell addressed an anti-hate rally at Central Connecticut State University about the anti-gay messages scrawled on her door, police had begun to question her claims. Twice the video surveillance system placed in Pennell's room to help police identify the person responsible for scrawling the notes had been disabled, in one case just before a note was slid under Pennell's dorm room door. Police say only after they set up a second camera in a hall closet — a camera that Pennell did not know about — did they learn the truth: Pennell had been...

    What Did Hate-Crime Hoaxer Dunn Cost the Colleges?  That's the big question the judge asked at her sentencing, which was postponed to December 15, following a psychiatric evaluation of the hate-crimes hoaxer. Calling Claremont McKenna College professor Dunn a "bald-faced liar," Judge Horan stated: '"Ms. Dunn doesn't have to stand up and say she did it," Judge Charles Horan said during Friday's hearing. "But it sure would help the court in deciding whether prison time is appropriate."' According to a reliable source, an alumnus of the Colleges who attended the hearing: 'The judge was disappointed--his word--that there was no one...

    Juicy new details about that intolerant California professor who got a year in prison for faking a "hate crime" against herself: The judge denounced her for "terrorizing" minority students. Pomona Superior Court Judge Charles Horan further slapped down psychology professor Kerri Dunn because she "turned the rest of the students into suspects, adding that her actions could have sparked major racial violence," NBC Channel 4 reported in Los Angeles. "He likened her actions to calling in a fake bomb threat, saying it had the effect of terrorizing people." Deputy District Attorney Martin Bean agreed. "From what I saw in the...

    POMONA - A former visiting Claremont McKenna psychology professor was sentenced to a year in state prison on Wednesday for falsely reporting that her car was damaged in a campus hate crime. A father's plea for mercy and a river of tears didn't win any leniency for Kerri Francis Dunn, who launched the community into tumult in March when she claimed her Honda was sprayed with racial and anti-Semitic slurs while she spoke at an anti-hate forum. Police later concluded she vandalized the car herself. "What she did was at least temporarily terrorize the minority students on campus and make...

    Walter Cronkite, Gloria Steinem, and Bill Bradley are speaking in May at the 2004 commencement exercises of the Claremont Colleges. Included with those notables is someone whose name may not be as easily recognized: Bernardine Dohrn, the commencement speaker at Pitzer College. On the Pitzer College web page announcing the event, Dohrn is referred to as a "leading child advocate" and a "Clinical Associate Professor of Law" at Northwestern University School of Law. This description is incomplete and therefore deceptive; it leaves out any mention of Dohrn's past as a leading member of Weather Underground, a radical domestic-terrorist group of...

    First, the Claremont Institute is not officially affiliated with Claremont McKenna College. It was founded by former students of Professor Jaffa when he was given the boot by CMC. CMC's reputation as a "conservative" school is vastly overrated. Only a third of the faculty is conservative and they are constantly under attack by the left-wing majority of faculty. Indeed, there is no western civ. requirement at CMC, making it therefore slightly less conservative than even Colombia. Food for thought.
